There should be a teeny tiny jack next to the VGA input. That is where the sound will feed into it from the VGA cable.
The PSTV is amazing.

Most LCD Tv's have input that look like an earphone plug(female). You need one of those cables that has the plug(male) on both sides to go from the vga box to the tv.

There is a chance your LCD doesn't support Dreamcast 640x480 VGA mode. Maybe check the specs before the Dreamcast VGA box purchase. Definitely go with the box that has a bypass for the games that don't use VGA. As for Audio the ⅛" stereo headphone jacks. If your LCD has an audio RCA input then a simple adaptor cable.
