Route HD Sound From HP Laptop (dv6t) HTIB With no HDMI


I just bought a HDTV and i was able to connect it to my Laptop (which does have a BluRay drive) with HDMI cable. I also have a old HTIB system which does not have a HDMI input.

So my problem is how do i route sound from Laptop to my old HT system.
I can see that one way is to buy a new receiver, can somebody suggest a entry level receiver with good upscaling and sound quality.

If you have any other suggestions please share.
