Connecting old Bose Lifestyle 12 Surround Sound system to new 4K TV

Not open for further replies.


Sep 4, 2017
I just purchased a Samsung UN65MU6300 TV and I'd like to use my old Bose Lifestyle 12 surround sound system for external audio as it's still running strong.
Issue is that Bose Lifestyle 12 only takes Analog (L/R) input and TV only has digital audio (optical) cable output and HDMI (ARC) cable input. Is there a way to hook the Bose system up with one of those audio converter adaptors or thru alternate device like blu-ray player? Or am I stuck?
