  •  Most modern amps can connect digitally to Apple TV (1+ / 0-)

    (with the exception of extremely cheap or insanely expensive ons).   Look for digital input (TOSLINK they call it.)    

    In my case I have an older amp (1990s Carver) that is quite good but has no digital input.     It required a converter box to make an analog amplifier work with a digital signal, but I was also able to take advantage of the fact that digital signals can be sent a long way with little loss, so I put the amp for the house speakers on the first floor while having the apple TV live next to the tv set on the second floor.   They were connected through our cable wiring in the house, which since we don't have cable is just wasted copper otherwise.
