Will these speakers work with my soon-to-arrive Panny TH42PX70?


Standard Member

I've just ordered a Panny TH42PX70, and it should arrive sometime next week.

In the meantime, I've been browsing around for a modest surround system that'd work with the tv.

Currently, my old TV came with a sort of in-build Dolby Digital Pro Logic, with sound outputs for a centre, right, and left speaker, all of which came with the set when I bought it way back when. The output is hifi, if I'm not mistaken.

Also, but DVD player and V+ box both have optical audio outputs as well as HDMI outputs, but I was wondering whether a standard HDMI cable would transfer audio well enough, without having to use the optical? Is the sound transmission through HDMI digital?

Sorry for being such a newbie.

My guess is that that system will accept a 3.5mm headphone input.

Therefore you could use the headphone socket on your TV to transfer

Remmeber though by not using HDMI/optical you wont be getting 5.1 etc

If your source is the TV you wont be able to get full 5.1 DD only prologic as the tv will only output stereo sound.

i actually use these for my 42PX70....


They sound Great(for the price)...no optical though...but the Amp does a great job of turning the stereo sound(from the phonos at the back of the tv) into a processed surround sound !
Also you get the advantage of the viera link...1 remote does all feature...works really well !!
But the major downside is no optical....but thay really cheap too...so ruff with the smooth and all that....my 2 cents worth.....:hiya:
