Like always when you upgrade to a new TV Nothing you have will work anymore. The old setup was nothing fancy but it served its purpose. I had a Pyle (Mini 2x75W Stereo Power Amplifier - PCA3) that powered 2 Boston Acoustic satellite speakers that are mounted on both sides of my bed's headboard. The reason for this was so the volume does not have to be so loud thereby, bothering other people with loud explosions and stuff when watching a movie in the bedroom.
Now I have up graded my TV to a LG Smart TV (47LM6700) with SimpleLink (which is LG’d version of CEC) and the only outputs are the HDMI (ARC) and the digital audio out, nothing else so my Plye audio amp will not work anymore. What I’m looking for is an amp/receiver that will work just like my old one, preferably not one that is the size of a house.
I don't want to change anything I just want to replace the amp with something that will work. I have been looking and researching this for about six months but have found nothing like I need; so now I am turning to the experts. All I have found is people talking about 5.1, 7.1/2 and 9.1 receivers. Which are great but I don't want “more sound”. Unless I can make them work with only 2 satellite speakers.
If anyone can help I would be very grateful and in your debt.
After some thought and searches based on some of your inputs I have decided to go with a HDMI to HDMI + Audio Extractor it seems like it is perfect for what I need and I won’t have to change anything. Thank you to everyone who provided help I don’t think I could have found this with a direction to start.
This is the one I went with
