Mike B Just to clarify, you can use the internal speakers and a Toslink output at the same time. I use the Toslink output via a DAC to feed my HIFI amp so that I listen to the TV through my HIFI speakers and control volume with the HIFI remote. I can also (although of course don't) turn the internal speakers up using the TV volume control OR plug in headphones instead at the same time. My instinct would be to use the Toslink & DAC for the loop amp leaving the internal speakers operating normally. I'm not familiar with sound bars but presumably you could either do as you suggest using the Toslink for the sound bar and the headphone jack for the loop or use a Toslink splitter as recommended by Mike P and have lots of lovely boxes, power supplies and cables although didn't Mike P say the ladies don't like cables? I'm joking of course. Neil
