connect speakers with 3.5mm to tv without 3.5 port

by rwemersonrw / August 22, 2014 12:11 AM PDT


I hope this finds all well.

I would like to connect a speaker that only has a 3.5mm port to a Samsung PN60F5300 (this TV model does not have a 3.5mm port) and I use a PS3 as a blu-ray player. Is that possible?

There are now kits for this.

You'll see them with optical to analog convertors and then an amplifier. But the better setup is to go with a receiver.

Thanks for your help! I might just get a sound bar if that is that case.
