You will need the optical cable. My receiver only passes video through the hdmi. So I hooked up the HDMI cable to the tv, and the optical cable to the receiver. Once that is done you have to go to the audio settings for the PS3 and chose audio through the optical.

How do i get my playstation 3 to connect to my bose 321 system?


Very simple. Red and White RCAs into any available input on the back of the 321. If the PS3 A/V cable can't separate the audio from the video (yellow RCA) by length of cable then get an RCA extension.
You can also connect this digitally with an optical cable (better sound) but you need to assign the optical cable to an input from your system menu. Your system menu can only be displayed on the TV from the video out of the 321. Go to "media center" and then down to "optical source"

Connecting ps3 to cinema system


There is no substitute for HDMI. However, the 'digital in' cable connection that you want to use is still digital and will sound almost exactly the same. The differences are barely noticeable to the human ear. Here is a list for you to see the pecking order of each type of connection.

Audio connections from best to least go in this order:
1. HDMI (digital)
2. Fiber optic (digital)
3. Coax - Digital (digital) <--- The one you want to use.
4. Component (analog)
5. RCA/AV (analog)

Video connections from best to least go in this order:
1. HDMI (full HD digital)
2. Component (Blue, green, red, white, red - HD analog)
3. S-Video
4. RCA/AV (Yellow, white, red)

Good luck!!
