Connect Your Soundbar with an Optical Cable

When you connect an optical digital cable from your TV to your Soundbar, all audio (including connected external devices) will be sent to the Soundbar and be outputted through its speakers. This means you'll have high quality audio from your Blu-ray player, game console, cable box, or any other device connected to your TV.

Connect External Devices

Your Soundbar comes with at least one digital optical (TOSLINK) input. Keep reading and learn how to connect your Soundbar to your TV or external device via optical digital connection. Before you get started, be sure to remove any plastic protective casing from your Optical Audio cable, or any plastic plugs from the optical port on your external device.

Before making any connections, make sure everything is powered off.

  1. Connect one end of the Optical Audio cable to the Optical Digital IN port on the back of the Soundbar, and then connect the other end to the Optical Digital OUT port on the back of your TV or device.

  2. Power on your external device, followed by your Soundbar and TV. 

  3. Press the Source button on the Soundbar remote to set your Soundbar to digital. The front display will read D.IN.

    Note: If you have no audio, remember to power on your external device(s) and change the source on your TV to the one the external device is connected to.
