not gonna work. Bose Companion 5 is a computer speaker and needs a USB connection. TV's don't have USB outputs and I've never heard of a Optical to USB converter. One could exist but I've never heard of it.

Agreed. If the Bose Companion 5 are new, return them and order the Emotiva Airmotiv 4. Much better speakers smile.gif
