orphaned tv components

After PO upgraded main TV, I now have this device abandoned in my cabinet. Do I still need it? What to do with it? (see photo below) Thank You.

Much depends on what you like and might want to use in the future ---or sell to the next guy!

What you have appears to be some form of connection to some audio (noise maker?) and how you feel will dictate keeping or removing.
I would guess the big bulge is a noise filter.
But then, I'm also a big fan of quiet, so not too much up on specifics.

That's an audio isolation transformer, generally used to eliminate hum caused by a ground loop between 2 pieces of audio equipment. Since one end of it seems to be disconnected, you can disconnect the other and remove it.

I did find mention of it in the wiring diagrams. It plugs into the audio output of the TV. Since I am trying to get my replacement Samsung TV to play through my OEM surround system, I will not get rid of it just yet. Thanks for the comments.

I have something similar but it looks different. On my RV it is a matching transformer so the the Speaker Level TV output (headphone output) can be used as a Line Level input for the LG Home Theater system.

Not that I ever use the home theater system any more and certainly not for tv watching. When we first got the RV we took Blu-ray discs with us on trips but now we never do. Which, with streaming, is kind of the story of video content on discs universally.

In general, I’ve attempted to keep all my OEM entertainment gear in stock form for any potential buyer down the road. But the older my RV gets the more difficult it is to keep that concept going.
