optical out on tvs


Standard Member
I am currently thinking of purchasing a Samsung LE40M87 and currently have a surround sound system with an optical audio connection. Considering most large tvs don't have very good speakers, does connecting the optical cable between tv and surround system help with the sound or does it only matter with a 5.1 source (like DVD player, games console). Hope that makes sense.
