Does Bose 321 support ARC?

Does Bose 321 GS Series iii support ARC?

 

I have a new LG TV hdmi2 (arc) connected to Bose. I get Bose sound only when playing dvd or am/fm, not from tv. 

Or, do I need an optical cable to get tv sound through Bose?

Hi @mc10,

 

Thank you for taking the time to post and welcome to the Bose Community.

 

I can confirm that the Bose 321 system does not support HDMI ARC/eARC, so you may have to look towards digital audio using an optical cable to output the audio of your TV.

 

Please let me know if you have any further questions!

 

Warm regards,

Re: Does Bose 321 support ARC?

Is there typically any audio lag or echo with optical cable? 
Any recommendations on cable brands (or ones to avoid)?

Hi @mc10,

 

There isn't an audio lag when using digital audio with an optical cable and if there is - this will be something regarding the settings on the TV which can be changed.

 

I cannot recommend a certain optical cable but you are more than welcome to contact our customer service team to place an order for the optical cable we offer with our systems, or you can visit a third-party retailer to find an optical cable.

 

To find contact information, go to Global Contact Us > Select your country > Scroll to the bottom of the page > Click 'Contact Us'.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions!

 

Warm regards,
