to get audio.My HDTV doesn't have optical port.I already connect the home theater to HDTV by HDMI.
So How can I connect the PS4 Slim to Get The best audio from my home theater.

Also I'm hoping to buy PS4 from thailand.there are two versions in here USA and THAI.what's the diffence between them,

PS4 Slim doesn't have an optical output. You need to connect the PS4 slim HDMI output to your home theater receiver and connect the receiver to your TV.

The receiver you have linked doesn't have HDMI in, only an optical in. so you cant connect the two.

You need to buy either a regular PS4 (which im selling btw  :)) or go for a PS4 pro or buy a receiver with HDMI in.

As for PS4 regions, PS4 games are not region locked and as for bluray movies thailand and US are both in the same region. so i dont think it matters which version you buy

What television do you have? Most have some sort of pre-requisite for audio output to a home theatre, usually via HDMI or RCA. I have my Home Theatre hooked up for Dialog TV in this manner.

You should be able to find this setting somewhere in the TV's menu under sound or audio. What would happen then is that the PS4's audio output via HDMI will travel to the TV, where it'll be sent to the Home Theatre via HDMI again, thus acting as a pseudo-audio receiver.

yes that's the way to go i guess.

ps4 > hdmi > tv > optical > hometheater

Doesn't your TV have a optical out?

Connect PS4 to TV via HDMI cable
Connect TV Optical out to Home Theatre Optical In via optical cable

This way I get Dolby output from PS4 into the home theater on my setup.
