    Hi, I just ordered a Toshiba 55UX600U HDTV with only one digital optical audio output jack. I'd like to enhance the sound (w/o running speakers all over room) and also be able to listen to wireless headphones late at night.

    Two Questions:

    1) Does anybody know of a soundbar with digital optical audio output in which I can plug my wireless headphone transmitter (since my TV's optical audio jack will already be occupied with the soundbar)?

    2) If I was to get a 5.1 system instead of soundbar, can I only use 3 of speakers (not 5)? The reason is because the TV is in a formal living room and we don't want speakers all over the room (the 3 speakers could be concealed in console stand under the TV). Although I realize I won't get true surround sound from 3 front/center speakers, will it still be better than a soundbar?

    Thanks!
    Gary
