how do i get quality sound from my PC to HDTV?

Ethio /Hab

what the problem is i do get sound but not really good sound.I bought audio cable and conected my HDTV and my PC.The manual which came with tv guides me to buy Audio cable.I did but it didn't work.

You've got a few options, but this depends on your computer and its capabilities as well.

Depending your computer's sound card you may have an optical output for surround sound. This is on many newer computers with media capabilities. If not this is something that you can purchase for $30 - $300, depending on how much sound control you would like. What a new sound card will offer you will be sound controls, and higher quality outputs than a standard sound card (typically just a speaker output which is a headphone jack connection).

If you don't want to mess with installing anything inside your computer there are numerous USB soundcards that you can get. These will connect to your computer VIA a USB connection and will give you many options for connecting to your home theater as well.

Go to one of your local computer super stores, or check out for sound cards. Look at both USB and internal cards. The only drawback to internal is that you will have to install it inside the machine - which you may or may not be able to do. One of those stores can install it for a nominal fee as well.

If you don't want to mess with anything mentioned above you can just simply connect a high quality RCA to Mini cable from your computer to your stereo. Its a cable with a headphone jack at one end and, left and right audio cables at the other.

I hope this helped. If you have additional questions feel free to email me through my profile, or check out my blog below for more support.

Which 55" hdtv has the best picture quality and which has the best sound quality?


Best picture is a tricky question to answer. Everyones perception of a good picture is very different. I can vouch for Samsung and Panasonic.

Samsung UE55ES8000 is a fantastic set, just been superseeded by the UE55F8000 but you can now get a great deal on last years set. It is a 3D capable LED edgelit LCD screen with a great wealth of SMART features and has so many connectivity options. What's more is that it looks amazing when wallmounted, thanks to an ultra slim bezel around the outside. All pictures are extremely clear even regular SD and even internet content.

Panasonic TXP55GT50/VT50 would be the preferred choice for the movie and sport lover. Its a Plasma screen co-developed with the boffins at Pioneer and THX. Plasmas are naturally better at producing better contrast as well as more life-like colour and superior motion handling. Plasmas do cost a bit more to run than LCD based sets and ideally, they perform better in a dark room. The only notable difference performance wise between the GT and VT model is that the VT has an infinite black filter in front of the screen to further improve the blackiness of the.....blacks :)

Sound quality wise all TV's are going to be poor. The UE55F8000 has supposedly improved sound quality, as it has a small bass speaker. But as its so slim, i'm not holding my breath. You are definitly better off with a soundbar or external speakers.

Best Soundbars for the money:

OrbitSound T12V3 £299.99 RRP - Wired Subwoofer has an iPod dock intergrated on the top of the soundbar.

Panasonic SCHTB550 £399.99 RRP - Wireless subwoofer, the soundbar can either be as one long speaker or split into 2 to form a 2.1 speaker configuration.

Sonos Play:Bar £599.99 RRP - Not cheap but if you already have a Sonos system, this is a great addition. Plus you don't HAVE to have a subwoofer if you don't need it. The SUB is a £599 option at the moment in Gloss Black.
