I presently use an Airport express to stream audio, and my PS3 to stream Iphoto and Netflix. I am interested in replacing both and only having the ATV2 there. My problem is I do not want a large receiver. I have my Airport Express wired to a Pyle amp which works very well. With the ATV2 optical output it seems I will only be able to stream music if the TV is on, or I place it near a large Audio Receiver. We no longer use the receiver, all our "CD's" have been converted to MP3's, we only buy music online, I have converted most of my DVD's to digital as well using Handbrake. We no longer need the disc and we ONLY listen to internet radio and Itunes. Thus the receiver is a waste of money for us since we have no inputs other then our computers. Does anyone know of a small sized audio amp that will support the optical input but can be mounted on the wall behind my TV?

Thank you

If you only care about stereo (2.0) sound, you can get a cheap converter like this and use any stereo amp:
