Can I connect a TV to your products?

This answer applies to:

  • R3 Mk1
  • R3S
  • R4 Mk3
  • MR1 Mk2
  • R410
  • R5 Mk1
  • R7 Mk3

Most flat screen TVs now have an optical output and with a suitable optical lead it is easy to connect this to the optical input on the rear of our products. You will probably need to adjust the TV settings so the sound output is set to PCM Stereo and diverted through its optical output, but once connected and working you will notice a huge sonic improvement over the speakers that are found in most TVs.

Some TVs also now have Bluetooth transmitters built in, so you can wirelessly stream your TV sound to our products. Please consult your TV’s manual on how to do this.

Our new R410 model features a HDMI ARC/eARC input, so if your TV has a ARC or eARC socket you should connect directly to this. With this method of connection, your TV remote will also adjust the volume on R410 and also turn the unit to standby when turned off.
