Good day everyone,

I apologize if this is the wrong forum, but this seemed to be the most appropriate one.
I own a Philips 32PFL5306H TV, I couldn't find an English website for it, but the Dutch website is http://www.philips.nl/c/televisie/5000-ser...=specifications

The details don't matter; what (I think?) is most important is that it has a Coaxial output for audio. Now I want to hook this TV up to my old speakers. I do not know what the name of the connections they have is, but they are those type of speakers you connect to an amplifier with 2 wires, that go into a red and a black connector. Well, that all works out and I can hook them up to the (old!) amplifier I still have just fine. (I can't test if they work, but you do hear them 'go on' when you turn on the power). However, connecting this amplifier to the TV has been problematic. What I have done is I have taken one of those cables which consist of 'a red wire and a white wire' on both sides (http://www.icidu.com/media/productdownloads/A-707307/images/A-707307%20Audio%20Cable%202x%20RCA%20M%202x%20RCA%20M%205m%20L.jpg) and I tried to connect this to the TV. The TV does have these inputs, but I soon learned that this is for a home cinema system, and it is input, not output. So now my question is, is there a way to connect this amplifier, which takes these red and white cables as input, to the TV, which only has coaxial output. And if not, what kind of amplifier would I have to buy, that I could still connect those speakers to (with the red and the black connectors)

I apologize for the long post, I hope it isn't too vague.

Kind regards

There is nothing inherently "low quality" about the headphone jack option and it has the convenience advantages mzil mentioned. Try it and see what you think; an appropriate patch cord is not expensive. If you still want to try the digital out, P17 of the manual indicates it can be configured to convert non-PCM (Dolby) to PCM stereo.
