    Optical out speakers 2.1/5.1? for TV

    Hiya, I've been searching everywhere for some decent speakers for my TV, unfortunatly the TV only has optical out for audio which is really annoying.. (theres no headphone jack etc).

    I could have separate Amp etc but i feel thats a little overkill.. if there are any decent optical out speakers it'll be perfect.

    Any suggestions would be great! Thanks!

    Yep, its got hdmi (input), composit (input), scarts (input), VGA (input) and optical (output). But the list there is all video in, not audio out.. :-(

    ok,kool, any suggestions? I've looked at the logitech Z5500, seems good, but woud like other options before i decide.

    wel ldepends how far u want to go.
    im selling my philips hts 3367/05, it has digital input but not optical so i have to use a converter from optical to coxial,but its seemless comversion and sounds amazing as its still in digital with no loss of qualtiy.

    i only selling as i want a wireless one i seen.
    i want £100 for mine colelcted from wigan the sound quality is amazing

    Your TV sounds like my LG 50PS3000. I have the same issue but I've been advised to spend £1.48 and get a SCART-to-Socket gizmo, ie, this thingy: amazon.co.uk/exe…uct

    Granted, it will take up one of the two SCART sockets on my LG, but that's better than having to buy a new set of speakers, epecially considering I just bought some Behringer Truth 2031A's

    its only analogue sound then though,no where near the quality of digital,

    as said get 5.1 u will never look back,even the news sounds better in surround

    I agree that it's analogue sound, the same as 'headphone jack' sound the Inquisitor mentioned in the OP :whistling:
