Connecting to a Monitor Without Speakers

Sponsored Links
First off, I am new to PS3 gaming, and gaming in general, so please don't beat me up for asking questions with what may be very obvious answers!

I have a PS3 slim and a Samsung SM2232BW monitor. I think I can connect the console through the HDMI port to the monitors DVI port with an adapter, but what do I do for sound? I do have a spare speaker system, but is there a way to hook it up?

My friend mentioned he connects his 360 console using a lead that splits in two, with the other part going to the speakers, but I cannot find an equivalent for the PS3.

Sorry if this has been posted before, I couldn't find anything with the search bar. Thanks in advance for any suggestions

Separating Audio and Visual output

I think that you need to separate the audio and visual output. The HDMI cable carries both, but the DVI cable only used the visual.

Here is a link that should help

You will need to also plug into the Multi AV cable socket a cable that can plug into your speakers.
