    Specs:
    20" Intel iMac 2.4 Ghz/3G Ram/320HD, Snow Leopard. PBook G4, 1.5Ghz/1.5 Ram/250 HD, Leopard 10.5.6.
    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.

    Just a question, how do you propose to hard wire speakers to your Apple TV?

    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.
