How can I connect external speakers to new 22" Samsung LED?

by wjhopwood / March 30, 2013 10:02 AM PDT

My new Samsung has no "audio out" jack anywhere and no earphone jack. What do I have to do to connect
two small speakers to be located in next room only
less than 20 feet away--either wired or wireless at
reasonable cost? Thanks.

That's just the owners manual which doesn't come close to
an answer to my question. Thanks anyway.

It appears I have to be blunt. This TV does not show any audio output jacks so this is why I answered that a tech would have to add it.

Sorry if that was unclear.

the only way I know of

would be if you have a cable converter box and split the audio out from there.

Thank you, I think that is the solution. Use one of the audio outputs
from my cable box (it has two, neither is needed when box is connected
to the TV by HDMI. I also probably need an audio amplifier between the
cable box and the external speakers.

a sound bar . I picked up a neat one at radio shack already amplified with a wireless remote, an Ipod dock and fm radio for pretty cheap. Pretty streamlined and doesn't take up much space.

Final solution: A $16 Mini Stereo/Amplified/Speaker
available at Radio Shack connected to "component"
Audio output of my cable converter box which was
vacant because the converter was connected to TV
by HDMI cable.
