Default First time setting up a surround sound.

Hey, I hope this is in the right place.

I know this will sound dumb but I have to ask anyway.

I have a Panasonic DMP-BDT460EB Blu-Ray player and a Logitech Z506 surround. There are no jacks on the Panasonic to plug the speakers in. Do I need some sort of adapter? I have no idea what I am doing so any help would be appreciated.

I found pictures online for both and based on that evidence, it appears to me that the Logitech surround speaker/amplifier system has no optical audio input and no HDMI input. The Pansonic Blu-ray player has only HDMI and optical audio output to handle audio. I wouldn't bother to try to make that work but the best solution if you insist on doing it, in my opinion, will be something that will take HDMI input, decode Dolby Digital and DTS, and output analog 5.1 audio since the Logitech speaker system has analog audio in.

The manfuacturer of this device claims DD and DTS decoding and analog output, the reviews aren't encouraging but perhaps it might work.

To simplify the situation, you have a Blu-ray player that outputs digital audio and a speaker system that can't decode digital audio. Whatever is done to make it work wouldn't be worth it to me.
