Re: just got Samsung 55in tv is there a place to plug in a sound bar ?

Hi there, GaryMCox,


Welcome to our Best Buy forum community, and congratulations on your new Samsung 55" TV! We know you want to start enjoying it to the fullest with your soundbar as soon as possible, so we're glad you came to us for help.


There should be a place for you to plug in your soundbar to the back of your TV using a digital optical cable. You can view a diagram on Samsung's site here for an idea of what it should look like when you're setting up a soundbar to one of their models.


Once you check out that diagram, you can get started by following these steps:

  • Connect the digital audio cable to the Digital Audio Out (Optical) port on your TV.  
  • Connect the other end of audio optical cable to Digital input connector of your soundbar.
  • Once that's connected, set the source on the TV to the HDMI input you want to view. The audio and video signal are sent from the external device to the TV via HDMI. The audio is sent from the TV to the sound bar via optical.

Hope that helps!
