Hi bazza1945,

The answer would be a yes, as long as the model of your playstation 3 has what's called a DIGITAL OUT (OPTICAL) CONNECTOR. As far as I know all of the PS3 has this type of connector at the back of the unit near the LAN port and AV port.

The next thing you need to check though is if you surround sound system has a DIGITAL OUT (OPTICAL) CONNECTOR. If it does, then you're all set. All you need to do is buy the necessary cable to connect the PS3 to your home theater/surround sound system.

For more information you can check your PS3 user manual or view it online at http://www.us.playstation.com/Support/Manuals/PS3

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

Connect ps3 just sound to surround sound


PS3 has an "optical out" port. Use an optical coaxial cable (something like this one XO Digital Optical Cable 2m 2 Metre Premium Install Series suitable for... ) to connect this to an optical in port on your surround sound receiver/amplifier.

Go into the sound settings on the PS3 and set it to output dolby digital 5.1 from the optical connection.

Switch your surround amplifier to the appropriate source.

Surround sound for ps3 with a hdmi cable..


you need a HDMI connection for your stereo. HDMI is an all in one cable so if you don't get your sound in/out you need to hook up to just the RCA's, if you get a reciver that has an HDMI input you will solve this. then you go HDMI to Reciver then HDMI to TV
