No I only want to use my speaker from me Sony for my TV and I ask you if the adapter is good or not if I plug my wire speaker to the A/V audio and HDMI to A/V video.

Honestly, its not clear what he's trying to do in this whole thread.

Is he trying to:

1. Connect the TV to the Sony system so that he can use the Sony speakers when watching TV? If so, there is no way to do that as the Sony unit has no inputs for external devices. And his Panasonic TV only has an optical output.

2. Somehow connect the Sony to the TV speakers so that he can send music from the radio, CD player etc to the TV speakers? If so, why would he do that? It doesn't make any sense as the Sony speakers are better than the built in TV speakers.

Either way he Sony unit poses a problem as it has no audio outputs or inputs for external sources.

OK but if I found on ebay converter or adpater or a wire to have digital optical to wire speaker, this will work ?

 

- If I found on ebay cable speaker to digital optical this work because on my TV I only have optical has OUTPUT ?

No, you will need an amplifier somewhere in the system. You could pick up an inexpensive Audio-Visual Receiver (AVR), (by definition a receiver has amplifiers built in to it and run the optical out from the TV into the AVR, and hook up the speakers to the AVR.
That will probably be your cheapest route.

If The tv has a headphone jack he could use a 3.5mm to cassette adapter with that older stereo. Not elegant but it would work.

There is no mention of a headphone jack in the TV's manual. He could use a toslink/optical DAC and then feed the output from that to a cassette adapter, but... ewwwwwww. It'll be unreliable, user-unfriendly, and the sound quality will be poor. And it'll probably cost more than (and sound much worse than) buying an older used A/V receiver with optical/toslink input off Craigslist. Not worth the bother at all.

A refurb Denon 1513 is $109 with a 1 year warranty.

http://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/denavr1513/denon-avr-1513-5.1ch-home-theater-receiver-3d-ready/1.html

either go that route or find a used receiver on Craigslist.

Looks like the OP was scared away by the inability to use his Sony all-in-one system. Too bad too, as a $40 used A/V receiver from Craiglist would probably run rings around the Sony.

I'm sure it would. Shoot, I found a HDMI receiver for $40 on my local craigslist.
http://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/ele/4486463160.html


That system of his had no connectivity options. It wasn't meant to interface with anything but itself.

Some of the things he was trying to describe were hard to comprehend too. Maybe English isn't his native language?
