I just bought a samsung 40b6000 led tv and the picture is just stunning if calibrated properly. The problem is they cut corners to lower the price tag and the built-in speakers are utter trash. They are worse than I thought they would. An easy way to omit that would be to buy a cheap 2.1 speaker set, plug it in and voila!
The problem is, Samsung decided not to make it easy for you to do that and included just one optical-out output. Why is that, I have no idea, but it's totally and utterly stupid and I HATE HATE HATE it
! I wouldn't want to return the tv though, the picture is awesome. I don't want to buy expensive amplifiers, home cinema systems or THX-certified speakers... I just want my tv not to sound as if the speakers were made of cardboard... Does anyone have any ideas?
I thought of plugging speakers into the sattelite decoder, which would be perfectly fine for everyday tv, but the tv can play lots of content straight from a pendrive or external drive, a feature which I will probably use extensively. I also thought of sending audio through a PC with a decent audio card, but that eats up both space and energy so it's also out of the question...
Please help, anyone?
