Question Connecting Old Plasma with Sound Bar

Jan 9, 2020

I have an older model Pioneer Pro-150FD and would like to connect it to a sound bar. It has HDMI, but not ARC. Can it be done? If so, what's required. btw, it also has a optical out port.

Thanks much
Make sure you get a soundbar with an optical input and you will be all set. The sound quality will be the same as HDMI-ARC but you won't get the CEC functions that would turn the soundbar on automatically when you turn the TV on or be able to use the TV remote to control volume.
You may need to turn the optical output on, the TV speakers off, and change the audio output type in the TV menu to get it working.
