Yes if you use the remote app on an iPod/iPhone, but no otherwise, as you need to be able to navigate a menu somehow.

iPhone 5C, iPod Nano 4GB 3rd Gen, ATV2.
MOTM October 2012. These days normally happy with an occasional grumble.

I have my apple TV connected to an Audio receiver that in turn passes along a video signal to the TV. The sound plays through external speakers controlled by the receiver.

That's a similar way I intend to do it via HDMI and Optical, I just can't see how it can be done without an amp.
