Will I be able to hook my RCA sound bar up to my Samsung Smart TV?
[ Thomas  Jul 31, 2019 ]

If you have an optical output/input on device...sure. This is a nice small connector.
[ Gary  Aug 07, 2019 ]
Thomas, yes, if your TV has an optical out and the RCA sound bar has an optical in, this cable will work well. I would assume both do, but you should make sure before the purchase. The great folks at Crutchfield can verify.
[ DAMON  Aug 07, 2019 ]
yes but you must use the remote from rca remote
[ Edward  Aug 07, 2019 ]
If your RCA Soundbar has an optical out, that should work. Check if your TV has an optical in.
[ Victorio  Aug 07, 2019 ]
You need to have your soundbar hooked up to your receiver and the digital audio cable goes from your receiver to your Samsung Smart TV.
[ Bob  Jul 31, 2019 ]
