Q
Will this work with samsung 4k tv ?
[ Felix  Dec 07, 2020 ]

Hi, it did work connecting my digital amplifier (Arcam A18) to my new Samsung Q80T 4K TV but some of the sound seemed a bit delayed between the TV sound and my external B&W front side speakers when getting the Samsung voice response after using the microphone to ask the TV questions. I ended up deciding to get a new AV receiver and using an HDMI cable to connect. Alas, it still has the same odd sound issue from the Samsung assistant. At least my new Yamaha RX-S620 receiver

Works with my 2019 Sony 4k TV. You just need a digital optical out port on the TV. Great purchase to run sound exclusively through an older reciever and speakers.

We have not received any answers from other customers on your question. I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help answer your question.
