Hi all - been lurking around for the past month and have appreciated all the useful information.

I just purchased a Sony CT-150 soundbar and had a question about connectivity.

Just three items:
Samsung DLP 5086 TV (no cable or sat feed, just on the air programming w/ bunny ears)
Sony PS3
Sony CT-150

Is this the best recommended audio setup I have implemented?

Sony CT-150 <-> PS3 (HDMI)
PS3 <-> Samsung DLP (HDMI)
Samsung DLP <-> Sony CT-150 (Digital Optical cable)

PS - I would also love to play many music CDs thru my PS3 that I have found. Anybody have recommended settings? (2 CH Stereo?)

Thank you!

I see no reason to connect the PS3 to the TV. I'd recommend:
PS3 >> HDMI >> CT150
CT150 >> HDMI >> DLP
DLP >> optical >> CT150

The CT150 will pass video from the PS3 to your TV. I assume the TV doesn't have ARC so you do need the optical for TV audio.

The CT150 has numerous soundfield settings. IIRC, there is a "music" setting as well as a "stereo" setting. See which you like best.

Yes, I don't believe the Samsung DLP has ARC either - not sure where to confirm but I didn't see 'ARC' next to HDMI. I will rewire the second HDMI cable from CT to Samsung.

Btw, I stupidly scratched my soundbar (small white fan hit it on top) and now it has some marks. Would anyone know how to do a clean buff of a sound bar?

Thank you for the quick reply Possumgirl (I also live in So Cal!).
