If you’re wondering how to connect your PS5 to a home theatre, you can easily use HDMI device link. Simply enable this feature in Settings > System > HDMI. Then, connect your PS5 to a compatible TV using an HDMI cable. Alternatively, you can connect your PS5 to a Bluetooth speaker or a Soundbar.

Optical port sacrificed for cost

It’s no surprise that Sony sacrificed the optical port on the PlayStation 5 in order to save money, but did they really need to do this? The lack of optical out connectivity in this generation of consoles is a reminder of how expensive PlayStation 3 was, and the lack of such a port was clearly not worth it to Sony. Fortunately, there is a workaround.

eARC port

If you want to connect your PS5 to a home theatre, you need to find a device with an eARC port. While HDMI ARC and HDMI eARC are both capable of connecting your PS5 to a home theatre, they have some key differences. The difference between the two lies in the amount of capacity that each port provides. HDMI eARC is the next generation of HDMI ARC.

An eARC port will work with both HDMI and analog video sources. It has an automated lip-sync feature that doesn’t require you to set any delays. In contrast, optical connections and HDMI ARC will require you to manually set the delay.

Bluetooth speaker

Connecting your Bluetooth speaker to a PS5 is easy. First, you need to purchase a Bluetooth adapter. Then, connect the adapter to your PS5. Make sure that it is in the pairing mode. Finally, select your Bluetooth speaker and set it as default for your PS5.

Then, connect the adapter to your PS5 with a Bluetooth speaker. Once connected, you should find the pairing button on the Bluetooth speaker and pair it with the PS5. After pairing, you can enjoy high-quality audio. Alternatively, you can download a mobile app that lets you pair Bluetooth speakers with your PS5.

You can also connect your PS5 to a soundbar via HDMI or optical cable. Then, go to the Audio Connections section on your PS5 and select the desired audio settings. For example, you can choose the Audio Format (Priority) and adjust the positions of the speakers. Once you’ve made these settings, you can then connect your PS5 to a soundbar or TV.


If you want to enhance the audio quality of your PS5 gaming experience, you can connect a soundbar to your TV. A good soundbar has modern audio features such as surround sound and high-resolution audio. It will enhance the gaming experience by providing an immersive and realistic soundscape. To connect a soundbar to your PS5, you need to find a device that has HDMI input and output.

Several brands make soundbars. The Bose brand, for instance, makes a good soundbar that has a number of input and outputs. Different models have different configurations and designs. Some may not have Bluetooth compatibility.

Setting up surround sound

When setting up surround sound on your PS4, you can use an optical or HDMI cable. Then, connect the sound system to your home theatre or TV through the optical or HDMI cable. This will create 7.1 surround sound. The PS4 can also be connected to a desktop sound system or controller through an audio cable.

The PlayStation 5 supports three audio formats: PCM, DTS, and Dolby Digital. You can change between these formats by using the Mic and Control Center. Dolby Digital and DTS both have different bit rates and therefore provide better sound quality.
