Loving it! Very impressed with this. Extremely easy set-up of the FreeviewHD and the Wi-fi! Sound quality is great, picture is excellent and it looks lovely even switched off. Already told lots of my friends and family about it. 16 September 2014
Television I was very happy with this t.v and the excellent help from the lovely young lady , only gripe is that the next week the price reduced by £30 ! 09 September 2014
Looks great, great visuals too. 04 September 2014
brilliant buy. this tv has everything i wanted from a H.D tv, and it was excellent value. 02 September 2014
Great TV If you are looking for a good screen, sound and picture then this TV is perfect, however if your are looking for a modern smart tv I wouldn't recommended, you cannot add additional apps and the only one's I can use are youtube and BBC I player, netflix etc are not available. Overall a great buy for a TV size upgrade 28 August 2014

Answer: 
Hi MStl,
Unfortunately this model does not have an optical output so you will not be able to to connect the soundbar through that connection. If your soundbar can accept a 3.5mm headphone input you can connect it to the headphone output from the TV.
Best Regards

I think you have to buy the recommended dongle. I tried a couple of third party ones I have and they didn't work. I am connected to my router by cable anyway.
