 Hello all, I have a samsung smart tv, i'm trying to hook up my surround sound. My 2 audio output options on the tv are the headphone jack and the optical audio jack. My surround sound only accepts RCA. I purchased the $9 headphone jack to RCA conversion cable from best buy and it works. My question is; is it worth buying the $30 optical to RCA conversion cable? Will I notice that much of a difference? My surround sound is a sony home theatre system model dav-hdz235

thanks for the help

I doubt you'll notice any difference.

You're not getting surround sound, just stereo.

I assume this HTiB has DPL. I'm not downloading the manual though.
