    Does anyone know of a 27" TV with 'audio out' for external speakers? Or even a TV Mfg that continues to include this option on some TV's?

    This is for a backroom setup that has to fit in an enclosure that only has a space for one electronics box (DVD now) so I can't setup a receiver but would like to continue to use external speakers with the new TV.

    Just about all "audio out" connections I know of are for connecting to an external amplifier. There are a few RPTVs with direct speaker outputs, but hardly any direct-view sets have amplifiers powerful enough to run the typical bookshelf speaker without being strained beyond their limits.

    My Toshiba CX2767J (15 yrs old) has audio out connections, worked fine before I got a receiver. It's a great set, keep an eye out for a used one. If you're anywhere near Syracuse you could have it cheap, it's only a bedroom set now.

    Are we all talking about audio-out outputs or speaker terminals on the back of a TV? If the former, any monitor worthy of inclusion in a home theater has them. If the latter, there are no direct-view sets I can think of offhand that have them. The typical amplifier in a direct-view TV can barely crank out a maximum of five or so watts per channel (across only a portion of the frequency spectrum).

    (Also, I always recommend against used TVs here.)
