Connect Samsung TV to Audiolab 8000c pre


Standard Member
Hi folks

total newbie here...hope someone can advise...

...when my Samsung 8000 series LED tv arrives, I'd like to connect it to my Icon Audio MB845 / Wilson 5.1 / Audiolab 8000c hifi system. But the tv has (astonishingly) no RCA/phono outputs, but a single 'digital audio' out. The Audiolab is strictly RCA I think, it being 1997 vintage.

Is there a connector I can use? Or do I need a new preamp? Happy to pay up to £1500 if need be.(I've no real interest in surround-sound - don't need it with Wilson speakers!).

I see the new Sony tvs have RCAs, so this is a serious omission imho. Samsung website is utterly useless for answering this question...

regards Chris
