View Full Version : What cable do I need to connect a Sony HTCT100 Sound Bar to my MacBook?

Jul 28, 2009, 10:43 PM

I’ve recently ordered a Sony HTCT100 Sound Bar with Sub-Woofer (http://www.amazon.com/Sony-HTCT100-Sound-Bar-Sub-Woofer/dp/B0015HS1HQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&m=A13ACIRM091OJE&s=generic&qid=1248701310&sr=1-1) off Amazon and it will be delivered to my house within a week or two. It comes with an optical audio cable. Is that all I need to connect it to my unibody MacBook (late 2008 model)? If not, which cable do I need to purchase to get the job done?

Please let me know. Thanks.

Need an optical digital cable with mini jack adapter. I use that to attach my zeppelin to the Apple TV.

As Bye Bye Baby said - you need a cable or adapter that will connect optical to the 3.5mm mini jack. An example of one:

One more silly question: There are two round ports on the left edge of my MacBook—one of them the 3.5mm jack for connecting headphones; what’s the other one for?
