My inlaws have a nice LG TV and they are getting a bit hard of hearing and often crank it up. I am thinking about getting (or building) a sound bar for them. Power it with one of those inexpensive little chip amps from PE. I have a $10 version that is surprisingly OK. So I think I have the amplification covered.d Their TV does not have analog audio output. But it has this little square jack that I figured out is Toslink (don't laugh, I live in the past folks ). So I think I need a DAC of some sort but not fancy. Found this at PE: https://www.parts-express.com/parts-express-hdmi-audio-extractor-with-toslink-and-lr-audio--180-995 HDMI Audio Extractor with Toslink and L&R Audio $28 for this lil sucker but it looks like would do the job. Got a ton of drivers sitting around including some nice small ones so I could build a nice wood finished sound bar for $0. I should probably look at ready made ones, maybe they have Toslink input or at least HDMI and I could skip the converter. Any other suggestions or ideas?
