I have an older Sony Receiver/Amplifier - Model STR-DE185 that I would like to hook-up to a new Samsung 4K TV. I have speakers hooked up to the Sony and would like to integrate the Receiver into the new Samsung TV system so I can use the speakers with the TV for movies and music. I'm thinking an HDMI out from the TV to an HDMI to RCA converter box. Am I on the right track? Thanks again for any help you can offer.
 
You could use an HDMI ARC audio extractor like this one

It's simpler to use an digital optical audio to analog converter like this one.

You may have to turn the optical output on, the TV speakers off, and change the audio output type in the TV menu.

You may have a problem connecting a CD player to a TV. Most TVs will not allow you to select an input without video being present. You would have to have an active video from some other source. If you want to try then connect the left and right analog outputs to the audio inputs associated with the component video input. That input may be able to be configured for composite video in the TV menu (easier to find a source with the yellow RCA composite video that the three RCA RGB component video).
Not sure it's really worth the effort since internal TV speakers are pretty horrible.
