I have a Peachtree DAC on order for hooking up to my Sony Bravia KDL-32BX420 32" TV. I did a google search for hooking up a TV to a DAC and saw this Thread. I've seen similar in other forums. Funny, usually when people ask for advice and start these they never reply with the results. So I thought I would register on here and see if I can get some advice and then hook up my DAC and I promise I will reply with the results when I get it hooked up.
My setup is the Sony KDL-32 BX420 HDTV with 2 HDMI ports.
TV HDMI 1 port has Kinovo switcher box connected. ( Kinovo box has a Samsung cable set top box and Sony BD, BDP-S480 connected into it).
Amazon Fire TV box (2nd gen) into HDMI 2 on TV.
Audio connections into Yamaha RS-700 Stereo 2 channel receiver. Onkyo CD C-7030. TV audio out through RCA's.
I want to hook up the DAC for better sound quality when playing music, movies, shows from the Amazon Fire TV. The TV has an optical connection and I would hook it to the optical In of the DAC. DAC out to Stereo Receiver through RCA's.
Menu on the TV Settings has MTS AUDIO with a "Stereo" option (AUTO SAP, MONO also). Other settings that might pertain to PCM setting are greyed out now are Alternate Audio??? I'm thinking that when I connect the TV using the optical cable it will only send a stereo, PCM signal to the DAC and into the Receiver. Hopefully, if this works, I will find the sound more appealing and will keep it. I also may be able to connect the BD through the coaaxial to the DAC, but I'm not sure if that is necessary,or that would already be accomplished through the TV to DAC connection.
I hope my descriptions are clear. Any thoughts suggestions will be appreciated. I wont be able to respond until later tonight. Thanks
