I’ve seen a similar question with a suggestion of using an hdmi-to-optical adapter
- the relevant pages from my tv manual: pg1, pg2, pg3
- Are there any downsides to using an hdmi-to-optical adapter? latency issues? sound quality issues?
- Is there a recommended converter, or anything I should be aware about in the specs or just buy the cheapest converter?
Lastly, the need for complex connections got me rethinking the suitability of Ray. The TV in question is in the kitchen and is not used for viewing movies, but only broadcast tv (mostly news). The TV internal speakers seem adequate, and I have a couple of Sonos One SL in the kitchen for music.
My plan was to connect the Ray to the TV and move the One SL that is next to the TV to a room that does not have a Sonos speaker. This way listening to music in the kitchen would be with the Ray and the One SL, and the TV’s sound would be enhanced.
Since the connection to the TV is going to be complicated, I think it would be easier (and slightly cheaper) to get the additional One SL to the other room and leave the kitchen setup as-is.
What do you think?
