This answer was rated:

I have a JVC LT-32DA42J television. The sound is not good and I want to improve it. Can I fit a soundbar to it and if so, which one using what connections, please?
Assistant: Are all the cables at the back of your TV connected tightly to the right sockets?
Customer: Yes
Assistant: What type of input cables are you using: HDMI, RCA (red, yellow, and white cables), S-Video, or something else?
Customer: I use the HDMI connections for my Humax freesat box
Assistant: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No, just how to improve sound.

Is there anyone there?

I am here.

Typically with a soundbar it would be hooked up via HDMI.

For your TV model, it looks like you have two HDMI ports, are any of these not in use right now?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
One is spare. the instruction book says they are for input only?

I see, do either one of the two HDMI ports have the letters "ARC" either above or beneath it, like in this photo?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
No. Just HDMI1 and HDMI2

In that case, let me double check what other options you have for connecting a soundbar.

I will message you back here shortly.

Thank you

Thanks, ***** ***** to hearing shortly

Your best option I believe would be to use the 3.5 mm auxiliary jack, aka the headphone jack on your television.

I have included links to a reasonably priced option for a soundbar and an auxiliary cable.

I sincerely ***** ***** helps, if you have any questions at all please let me know!

Thank you
