Connecting speakers externally to a TV takes just a couple of minutes with audio links that embed straight into RCA-type jacks on the TV. On the other hand, as there is an amplifier incorporated with a TV is just powerful enough to drive the built-in speakers, so there must be power sort of source to utilize the external speakers. The result is either to connect the TV to an amplifier for home theater and then connect the speakers to the amplifier, or to utilize self-powered speakers, for example, the little desktop models designed for connecting with the PCs. Machine speakers may be the better choice if floor space is unavailable for standard home theater speakers.
