I was just poking around the back of the unit and noticed that there is a line out jack in addition to the optical out. Someday, in the future, when I upgrade my HT amp for an 11.2.2 Atmos setup, I'll bring up my 7.2 amp upstairs and make use of the optical output but for now, I'm interested in the line out.
With a small amount of effort, I'm sure I can find some old powered computer speakers I have kicking around in storage that have to be an upgrade to the built in speaker on this unit. Before I expend this effort, I'm just wondering if anyone can chime in here and let me know if I will be able to control the volume of the line out from the TVs remote?
This would be a deal breaker, as the wife and I are of differing opinions on what contstitutes a suitable listening volume.
