Hey Shamsul,

 

Thank you for reaching out - I hope you're enjoying your Soundbar 700!

 

The Bose Music app is the best way to stream your favorite music to your system, using the range of services available. If your older media device doesn't have Bluetooth, you may have to get hold of a Bluetooth transmitter and connect this, to have it appear as a device to be connected to. Have you looked into this?

 

In regard to wired options, you could use a converter to change the output from your media device to match the soundbar optical port. This isn't recommended practice as we cannot account for audio quality when using a converter, but it could be an option. Give this a search through third-party retailers and come back to us if you have any queries or questions!

@Shamsul alam, Optical, HDMI and Bluetooth are the only way to connect an audio device with your soundbar. An adaptor would be needed for anything else. The handy guide here explains all about the ports on the system and how they work. 

 

Let me know if you have any other questions.
