Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fibre Optic First of all my TV's model number is a 43LJ5500. I like the TV except for the fact it only has two outputs for sound. One is used for the internal speakers and the other is a fiber optic cable jack. I use headphones at times and my stereo amp can take several kinds of inputs to transfer sound to my headphones. Not all amps are fiber optic friendly. Luckily mine is, but it seems to be inoperable lately when I try to use my headphones. Also I was under the impression that all smart TV's are Bluetooth ready. I was wrong. I am currently in the process of buying a fiber optic converter to resolve this issue. My 30 days return option at Target has expired so I can no longer return my TV and upgrade to a Bluetooth ready smart TV. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank You Larry
