New TV how to connect to Pre Amp


Recommended Posts

Have just installed a Samsung OLED TV that uses a Samsung 'One Box', it has either HDMI, HDMI EArc or Optical outputs.

 

Is there any way this can be connected to my systems preamp that only has either RCA or XLR inputs.

I haven't had much luck with those cheap eBay DACs and splitters. They sound terrible if they work at all.

 

Maybe go a bit upmarket and get a better DAC. Use the Toslink connection from the TV. Even something like this will give good results.

Depends on how much you want to spend?  You can get a DAC with optical input from $20 or less to $$$$$.

 

Alternately, get a streamer/DAC with HDMI earc input like a BlueSound Node N130.
