The existing audio outputs only go to the Bose speakers. I can't find any other audio output from the v35.
Any thoughts are appreciated.
I read this on a post Hope it helps.
AngryStamen - I have a Bose V35 system with about 8 addon SA3/SA2 amps that feed speakers in various rooms in my home and a connection to my PC.
Like you have said, to get sound OUT of your Bose V35 or V25 to non-Bose equipment (like your inwall speaker system which I assume are driven my an inwall amplifier that you will hooking to the Bose system) you do need the Bose link 9pin DIN to 2 connector RCA males cable.
To get sound over the connection you need to tell the Bose system to send music over the cable. For this you need to buy and use the Bose RC-35S2 remote control (you can get one on ebay for about 65 bucks (sometimes more, somtimes less). the room switches need to be configured as room O.
When your remote is configured, the remote will allow you to turn on and off the signal to the amplifier feeding your speakers and allow you to control what source is sent (e.g TV, FM/AM, Disc, IPOD). You can not, however control the volume of the signal that goes to the amplifier - it is only a line out. If you already have a volume control you are all set. if not, you may need to add an inline volume control or preamp.
You could also use an HDMI splitter on the V35 output. and add an HDMI to component/audio converter. then what ever sound is being played on the main speakers would be replicated on your inwall speakers. I use an HDMI splitter to send my V35 output to 2 different TVs - work great
hope this helps
