    I am planning on purchasing the 27 inch iMac. Right now I am able to output video and audio to my a/v reciever and then to my large tv in the next room so I view content. I own a windows computer now with external speakers and I simply split the audio signal so I can listen to audio simultaneously at computer and through a/v receiver. My question is since the speakers are internal on the iMac, do they get muted if you plug in a audio connector into the audio output jack.

    Edit: Well let me clarify...plug in headphones then yes. Plug in external powered computer type speakers yes. Just a 3.5 mm audi cable running to something else (like A/V receiver) I would guess yes, but have not tried it. I say 99.9 percent yes.
