Is your Samsung home cinema system 3D? If you want to connect the Toshiba to the Samsung system you will need to buy a digi-coax cable and an optical cable as per my first reply.

You don't normally get any cables with equipment unless it's a package. You might have got a HDMI cable or composite video cable (yellow/red/white) but it would be very unusual to receive any digital audio cables.

If you already own the Toshiba, I wouldn't buy another home cinema system w/ built in bluray player. What would be the point in having two players? If you plan on expanding the setup with games consoles, sat/cable etc. then I would replace the all-in-one down the road with separates but if not, stick with what you have. That said, I wouldn't bother with 3D (sorry).
