Not sure what you mean.

Well, first I was trying to ascertain whether you could send the audio directly from the source. For example, I have ditigal HD cable but it requires a box. I send the audio and video to the TV via an HDMI cable and I send a separate digital audio feed from the cable box to the surround system.

My audio is an old Bose lifestyle system. I run the audio out by composit from the TV AV out jack to the bose. On my old tv with an "audio out" jack, the signal sent from this jack was sent at the same level as the TV audio coming from the speakers. This is not happening with the new tv.

I looked at your TV's specs. It has tons of very high quality audio outputs. If your source (cable, satelite etc) is going straight into the back of the TV, I'd send the best quality audio I could out to the surround system.

Composite RCAs are a good step down from either HDMI (which an older Bose system may not have), Toslink (or Optical) or Ditigal Audio.

I'd be surprised if the Bose didn't take at least an optical or digital audio input from the TV. As you experiment, you may find a better setup. Ultimately, I found that my surround sounds best when I shut off the TV speakers while using it.
