Samsung LED tv and sony Home Theatre connection

by mHaldar / August 6, 2011 2:06 AM PDT

I have a samsung series 5 full HD tv (LA32C530F1R) which has below audio output (apart from its inbuilt speakers)
1. A mini jack audio out.
2. Digital audio out (optical)

My sony Home Theater (
DAV-DZ640K) has below audio inputs .
1. mini jack audio in
2. RCA audio in
3. Audio Return Channel (HDMI)

The home theater works fine when played using DVD or USB .But
when I connect my tv to home theater, using RCA or mini jack ,the sound quality degrades.(feels no surround sound )and my tv's HDMI version is 1.3 (so no Audio Return Channel )

So what is the best to get better TV audio out of my home theater

You need different equipment. It's always easier to achieve this with separate inputs that send along surround to the receiver (e.g. cable box, blu ray player, etc.) instead of trying to squeeze it back from the display.

Never heard of such a thing.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
