    Dear All,

    My Sony AV receiver naturally assumes that I will channel all my audio through it's various speaker outs.

    As a result it only provides a video component out to link to my TV and no audio out.

    This seems a bit of a waste of the speakers in my TV and I would like to use them.

    I would like to link my centre speaker outs from the receiver to the RCA audio in on my TV.

    What I want to know is, if I strip the receiver end of my RCA cable can I isolate two separated wires which I could attach to the speaker out terminals?

    Perhaps more importantly, if I do this will I knacker any of my components?

    Thanks all,

    Bob

    Methinks a few component names and model numbers might be of assistance here.

    Does your receiver have any pre-outs?

    If you have a dedicated center speaker you may want to stick with that, most TV speakers sound awful.

    Do NOT do this - the speaker out from your receiver is amplified (high-level), the RCA input is low-level, and damage will most likely occur if you make a connection as described.

    As explained, most likely yes. However if you have a preout for the center channel you can connect that to the RCA input at the TV. If there is a stereo input at the TV use a splitter / Y-cable.


    If you need further advise please state the make and model of TV and receiver.
