How do I connect Samsung KS8000 TV to my speakers?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I recently bought a 65" Samsung KS8000 4k TV from Costco and I was setting it up in my living room and I couldn't figure out how to connect them to my speakers.

I'm using the Audioengine A5+ bookshelf speakers and a Premier Acoustic PA-150 Subwoofer.

The TV has an audio input called ARC that I've never heard about and an optical cable as the other audio input, neither of which my speakers have.

Right now I'm using my desktop PC with the TV and I can connect my speakers directly to my PC, but I want be able to use the speakers when there's other sources like PS4, or the smart TV itself.

The speakers only have an audio jack and white-red cable inputs.

What's a good clean solution? The less cables the better.

The fact that new TV's are sold without good old analog A/V outputs is kinda distressing to me,

I guess the easiets, cleanest and cheapest solution would be to to use a Bluetooth audio dongle. However, the sound quality might leave something to be desired. 

I'm also unsure whether the Bluetooth functionality is strictly for voice control or if it can also be used for sending audio.

 

The second solution would be to get a DAC that can convert the optical signal into an analog signal.

Does it not have 3.5mm out??

Look in the manual.


My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

Hang on.

I actually looked at the DAC I have, It's a Schiit Modi 2 Uber http://schiit.com/products/modi-2

Is that an optical port in the middle? I just now noticed it had that.

Would this be able to connect to my TV? Or do DACs only work with computers?

I World Think it would work but can you connect the speakers to it?

Yes the Speakers have red-white cable inputs and the DAC does as well.

I connect the DAC to my PC using the USB type B.

If I buy an optical cable I should be able to connect the DAC directly to the TV with that.

The optical port on your tv it is in fact an out put.

In your DAC   =>  Inputs:  Modi 2 Uber: USB, Toslink SPDIF, Coaxial SPDIF
if you connect your optical output (toslink cable) from your Tv to the optical input into your DAC, it will work. In this case you will be using your tv as the receiver for the ps4 or any other hdmi device.

I assume you have hooked up your speakers to your pc using the usb port in your DAC.as the source.

In this case, only one aditional cable is require to acomplish your wish.

To change between sources, toslink (optical) and usb, go to properties on sound devices on windows.

You must set up your preferences in your audio tv options to external speakers.

ARC stands for Audio Return Channel. ARC enables the TV to output digital sound via the HDMI (ARC) port. However, ARC is only available when the TV is connected to an audio receiver that supports ARC.
