If you have an MU8500 or an NU8500, neither one has an analog audio output. (Samsung seems to have abandoned analog I/O. I had a 2016 KS8000.)
They have optical outputs. There are inexpensive digital optical to analog adapters available, but they would be of little use, as the TV doesn't control the volume of the optical output.
I know of no other work-arounds that would allow the TV to control the volume.
Sorry that I can't be more encouraging.
Incidentally, if the TV had a stereo analog audio output (which it does not), you'd want to connect it to the two line level inputs on your YST-SW205. It will mix the two signals to mono. I can't swear that tying two stereo channels together directly would damage the hardware, but I wouldn't risk it.
