Attempting to Connect my Big Jambox to Samsung Television

Hello!  I am hoping someone can help me.  We recently purchased a  Samsung 32" 5000 Series - Full HD LED TV.  I am really not digging the sound from the TV's speakers.  We have a Big Jambox that we were using on our smaller TV and want to connect it to the Samsung.  The problem that I am running into is that this is not a smart TV and it does not have a Headphone jack.

 

I was wondering what the best way is to connect the Jambox.  Iwas looking into using the optical digital audio output with a converter.  I was reading that once I use that, I cannot control the volume using the remote control.  Only by changing the volume on the Jambox.

 

Is there a way to get a converter that will make the TV bluetooth compatible so I can use the Jambox via bluetooth?  I really don't have any experience with any of this so any help is greatly appreciated.

 

If anyone has an answer and can provide what products I would specifically need and how to use them, you would be my holiday hero.  We are hoping to have a Star Wars marathon leading up to Rogue One on opening day...and our current speakers will just make it a sad, sad event.

 

 

TV Specifics:  Samsung 32" 5000 Series - Full HD LED TV - 1080p, 120MR (Model#: UN32J5003)

Hey papervsglue, 

 

Sound on many TVs fall short as they only have a 10 watt speaker on each side that faces the wall, hence, the terrible sound you're getting. I really don't want you to suffer during your upcoming Star Wars marathon!

 

Samsung’s under their 6500 do not have Bluetooth capabilities. I’d recommend trying out this Insignia 6’ 3.5 mm Mini to RCA Stereo Audio to make your marathon a smashing hit!

 

Kindly,

That will not work because those audio connect on the TV are only for input NOT output. I've tried this already.
