"The system has two audio inputs: a 5.1 input for your computer and a stereo input for auxiliary audio devices."

You'll use the stereo input per Bose's manual.

When I plug in my Bose via auxiliary, it goes to standby mode quite often and I understand that this limitation is not there if I hook up my Bose via USB...

To hook up with USB

I'd have to use some PC to encode it to the USB signals. Seems expensive and too fiddly for most folk. Even I would not do this. I only read part of the product manual so look around for why it goes to standby.

So is there any convertor/adapter I can do this way?
