DAC for Samsung TV into Sonos connect amp?
I currently have a Samsung UE46D80000 with only an optical output for sound, connected via a small DAC (cost £50 approx) to provide an an anlogue output for one of two Sonos Connect amps in my kitchen, connected to B&W ceilng speakers. This is an attempt to improve the sound from the existing TV speaker and to make the sound available throughout my Sonos units. The DAC was supplied and installed by the retailer when I purchased the TV a couple of years ago. Frankly the sound is very very diasappointing with this arrangement, so much so that I never use the feature, I should add that this is a freeview signal, not from DVD.
Is it the Freeview sound capability that is poor or can I use a better DAC to get an acceptable sound through the analogue Sonos input?
Would appreciate any help on this.
