We don't have a TV, so when we watch movies it's usually download from iTunes and hook my MacBook up to an HD projector (via HDMI). For audio, I plug in some JBL speakers I have, which connect to the 3.5" headphones port on the MacBook. Setting this up is cumbersome, and I've been contemplating an Apple TV. I can easily connect it to the projector, but the problem is the speakers I have don't have an optical connection. I guess I'll need to buy some speakers I can connect directly to the Apple TV, but I don't want to spend much. I'm not that picky as far as audio quality, and the JBL Duet speakers I've had have been fine for me. Obviously I'm no audiophile. Are there any speakers with an optical port of similar quality and price out there?
