Yamaha Electronics Corp and Robert Silva
A higher-end soundbar may provide the following options in addition to the digital optical, digital coaxial, and analog stereo audio connections.
HDMI connections let you route your DVD, Blu-ray, HD-cable/satellite box, or news streamer through the soundbar to your television. The video clip signals pass-through untouched, while sound may be extracted and decoded/processed because of the soundbar.
HDMI decreases mess between your soundbar plus the television as you don’t need to connect split cables to the television for video as well as the soundbar for sound from outside supply products.
