One of the biggest benefits of getting an HD-capable television, besides the great picture quality, is the digital sound. If you have recently purchased a Samsung Plasma television and want to get the most out of your sound, you can connect an axillary speaker or surround-sound set to your plasma screen television.

Find out what kind of input device you are using. The scope of modern HD audio equipment is quite wide, so you need to figure out what kind of output method your equipment uses so you can plug it in to the appropriate port. You can generally tell what type of output your speakers have by looking at the shape of the cord, and matching it with the shape of the input on the back of the television. However, if you are still confused, you can also consult your audio system's owner's manual.
Make sure the internal volume on the television is turned off, and then power off the television. Then set up your audio system. If the audio system is a surround-sound system, make sure to set the speakers in a way that is consistent with the system set-up guide that was included with the speakers.
Once your speakers are all set up, connect the audio cords to the back of the television. If the cords are analogue-style, make sure to connect the red and white cords in the appropriate ports. If the input is digital, make sure you put it in the appropriate digital audio/HDMI port. One everything is connected, power on your sound system and your television and then enjoy the sound.
Tips and warnings
- Some Samsung television models need to be specially configured for surround and digital sound. To configure your television, press the "Menu" button on your remote control, select "Sound" and then set the options according to your new sound scheme.
