Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.
Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.
The tv has no ability to drive external speakers without an amplifier.
Soundbars, in general, are going to be an Active (powered) device, so they don't need amplification from the tv.
You just need a powered soundbar, and the tv is capable of passing digital audio signals to a soundbar system.
I can recommend some systems for you, but need to know if you want just a soundbar + subwoofer, which would be considered a 2.1 or 3.1 type system, or if you want a real 5.1 surround system?
