Will Airplay audio work on an Apple TV even if the TV isn't turned on? Or will it work so long as the audio receiver is on?

I'm thinking of buying one mainly for Airplay audio use, but will get the Airport Express if the TV must be on.

Thanks in advance!

The TV does not have to be turned on as long as you are running the audio through the Optical audio port or have a hdmi cable plugged in to a receiver
