OK here's my situation. I just bought a Vizio Sound Bar for my room. I have a Samsung TV and a PS3 and I bought an optical cable.


Now, the sound bar has one optical input and my TV has one optical output. My main question is will I get a better sound on my playstation connecting the optical cable straight from the PS3 to the sound bar as opposed to connecting the sound bar to the TV via digital optical.


I care more about the sound of my PS3/blu ray player than I do for regular TV viewing, so, if I'll get a better sound connecting the sound bar to the PS3 I'll do that, and I can still connect the sound bar to the TV via regular cables. If it doesn't make a difference I'll just connect the TV to the sound bar with the digital optical cable.


Thanks for the help

You are only going to get 2 channel out of the optical from the tv. If the PS3 sound is the most important connect that directly to your soundbar.

Is that a VSB200? If so, it only accepts 2 ch. PCM over optical so it will make no difference how you connect the PS3.
