SOMETHING needs to convert the optical audio into analog to push  
those speakers around. You either need to buy a receiver that does  
the D to A conversion or some other device that converts for you and  
run from that device into the speakers on the LCD. If you don't  
convert the optical data to analog, it sounds like screeching and  
whatnot. You know.. digital. 1's and 0's. :)
