How to connect HDTV with Logitech Z-2300 computer speakers ?

Hello experts,

I'm getting a Roku 3 that I intend to connect with Toshiba 46G300U LCD HDTV and Logitech Z-2300 THX-Certified 2.1 Speaker System.

The HDTV doesn't contain a 3.5mm headphone jack where I could have plugged the 3.5mm connector of the speakers :(

Was looking at this HDMI® Audio Converter which theoretically looks like it would work.

I wish there's a cheaper solution out there that would just convert the "Digital Audio Output" from the HDTV to be sent to the Logitech speakers using the 3.5mm jack. I was told by Toshiba that there's a converter for this.
Or any other solution would be great too.

Would greatly appreciate if you guys could throw some light (and/or wisdom) my way.. :)

Many thanks in advance.

ps: Attached the HDTV manual fwiw..

The Digital Audio converters do exist.

See

and this one

looks like it comes with the optical cable and has support for the 3.5 mm plug as well.

Verify the connections before you buy.  See page 18 of your manual where it talks about the TOSLINK connector to the TV.  I think this box and your TV use the full size TOSLINK connector.
