Yes,
depending on how many speaker you intend to run will determine the type of amp you will need.  Set the output on the source unit to optical out.   Connect the optical cable to the amp.  Connect the speakers to amp.  turn them all on and select the iput of the source unit on the amp and enjoy.
good luck

How do I get audio out of 32lc2d to go to the external surround sound system


Depends on your external sound system... If it supports HDMI, then just connect an HDMI lead between the TV and the external amp. If you don't have HDMI, look for two RCA/Phono connectors (small circular connectors) on the back of the TV (should be coloured red & white) and connect these to the external sound system. Finally, if you don't have either of these look for a 32 pin scart socket (rectangular with a bit sticking out) and get a scart to phone cable. Plug the scart plug into the TV and connect the Red & White output leads to your external system - hope that helps :-)

Have lg 55ls5700 tv trying to connect samsung hw-f450


I suspect that the TV you have does not support the ARC function that the sound bar has. What you may have to do is use the Optical In from the sound bar to the TV and you should be good to go. You may have to change the TV's settings to use the Optical In though. So you should end up with the BluRay Player connected to the TV via an HDMI cable, the sound bar connected to the TV via the Optical In using a fiber optic cable. Hope this helps.

This TV is lacking in the audio department. I'd like to add external speakers, but the only Audio Out appears to be the headphone jack. Can I hook up via a preamp to power external speakers?


What you can do is to look at the back of the TV and search for an audio out. The presumption here is that this TV is a newer Flat Panel and has too many connections on the back of the screen. It will be confusing, but it may be by itself and it will say "Audio Out" or "Digital Out" (Digital Out is best). If this is not true you can connect the Headphone out to the Pre-Amp through a 1/8th to RCA cable connection from Radio Shack. When you find it you can connect this output to your Pre-amp or AV Receiver with standard RCA cables or "Optical Cables" (Optical Cables are best) and really enjoy the movies with as much Butter on your Popcorn as you can stand but watch out when it gets scary because the Popcorn will fly.

CONNECTING MY TV TO MY STEREO


Make sure the output in your tv menu is set to external speakers. Any digital optical cable, or RCA jacks hooked up properly from the TV's out put to the receivers input should work just fine. Take your time, retrace your steps, and make sure each cable is in the correct input/output. And make sure the receiver and TV are on the proper settings. Good Luck, and thanks for using FixYa!

External Sound Card


No, that's not going to work. Digital output is just that....Digital. Your trying to send a digital into analog....won't work. Your tv don't have red and white audio out. That's what you hook to, but it still wouldn't be 5.1. Your out of luck my friend. The ONLY way you'll get 5.1 out of that T.V. is to get a 5.1 reciever with CO-AX digital input...the SAME as whats on your T.V. You can only hook-up sound to your X-FI with the line in jack using a y-connector and 1/8" stereo plug....and it won't ever be 5.1. It can't that way. Only way to get 5.1 to work on the blaster is with the tosh-link optical input cable. This too is digital, but uses optics to send it. Remember, you are playing with 2 different formats. Analog with your white/red thing you made and then digital. Digital using co-ax or optical tosh-link. Completely different.....as you now know.

LG Plasma 42PC56 optical digital audio out


I can't imagine your setup. Box, tv and pc speakers?
Typical setup would be box, tv and some kind audio system with optical IN. Correct wiring would be connect box to tv via scart and connect optical cable from BOX to audio system. You have to go from box not from TV since scart connection doesn't carry audio signal. To have TV to output optical audio out you would have to connect it to box via hdmi.
