What type of audio should I use for my DirecTV system?

Connecting Your DIRECTV System to your Sound System

What would be the use in having a great television picture with terrible audio? Most people, who take the time and effort to set up a DIRECTV system or other satellite system, also take the time to set up a good audio system. Taking care of this is easy. First, you will need the equipment, so if you do not have a receiver that can take a digital audio input, look around for a new receiver and possibly a speaker upgrade.

Once you have your audio system ready, you will have a few options for setting it up with your DIRECTV system. Some people still connect the DIRECTV system to a standard stereo connection with old style cables. For the best sound, you will want to use a digital audio output from your DIRECTV system into your television or receiver. This type of audio will be as clear as your high definition picture.

What's the point in watching great quality TV if you have to strain your ears to hear it? Take the time and spend the extra money to set your DIRECTV system up on a great audio set-up and you will get the most enjoyment out of your TV viewing each night.
