    Off topic but Need help.


    First of all sory if this annoys some people for posting an off topic question.
    I tried to figure it out on my own but could so I came here because I have always had my questions answered by people on this site.

    A relative got a new tv. Its just a small 22" samsung ( Samsung LN22D450 22" LCD HDTV LN22D450G1FXZA B&H Photo ).
    The sound is as you would expect on a small tv, terrible.

    I wondering a cheap way to get better sound. Maybe someone could recommend some speakers that would work with the TV.

    I hope everyone had a merry Christmas,
    thanks in advance.

    Does it have standard audio outputs? If not, you may be stuck. I know that some Samsung TVs do not have any easy way to connect auxiliary speakers or to route sound through a standard home stereo system.

    1x RCA Component Video In (Rear)
    1x RCA Stereo (L/R) Audio In (Rear)
    1x SPDIF Audio Out (Rear)

    Well, what can you plug into the SPDIF audio out? It appears to be your only choice.

    Isn't that used to play sound through a PC? If so, that probably wouldn't help. I've never attempted to use an SPDIF output on a TV. I'd doubt if you can connect an ordinary set of auxiliary speakers to SPDIF, but I could be wrong.

    The SPDIF output could be used to connect to a home theater receiver.
    Are you positive there are no rca audio outs ?

    Its just a 22" inch tv, im not looking to get a full home theater for it. It has a headphone jack, would computer speakers theoretically work?

    There could be a low-dollar A/V receiver you could use if it has HDMI output. TV signal>A/V receiver>TV via HDMI. the A/V will have outputs for speakers, two would be enough. There are pre-packaged home theater systems for around $200 USD. I suspect PC speakers won't be much better than the TV's.

    Depends on the speaker quality really. Some cheap PC speakers may have a better soundstage/bass than the TV's inbuilt speakers.

    Or as you say, they could be much of a muchness.

    I was thinking the same thing, I know the cheap speakers probably wouldn't sound much better if at all. But there are some decent computer speakers out. I may just say to get a home theater or a sound bar, but it seems kind of strange to spend 200+ on a sound system for a 22" tv.. but it may have to happen because the sound is terrible.

    Thanks a lot for the input everybody.
