"Toshiba 50-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV with HDR - Fire TV Edition"

While I worry about PQ, it has an ANALOG OUTPUT with a headphone jack.
I've lost count of HDTV sets that do not have ANALOG OUTPUT.

The 55 inch model has this jack as well at but today is $450.

The 50 inch may be the craziest deal out there but with 3 HDMI ports and that ANALOG AUDIO OUTPUT it may be what many were shopping for. notes the deal expires today.

TESTED!!! Looks to be perfect for those wanting ANALOG AUDIO

Unpacked and setup. When you plug the usual headphone in, the audio on the headphone jack varies with the remote control.

Will test later to see what happens when you turn on the TV speakers. Will headphones keep working?
This is a common request and this model line just may be your answer.

While I can guess why this is, many have asked for this.

Tested! Toshiba Sound Bar with Audio over HDMI ARC and CeC!
Aug 19, 2018 2:14PM PDT

One of the annoying problems is ARC (audio return channel) but when it works along with CeC you get to ditch (almost) another remote.

Since I've learned to match makers when possible I ordered up this Toshiba sound bar and sub.

It was a snap to setup. Plug the HDMI cable from the ARC HDMI port to the sound bar. Turn on CeC and set the speakers to ARC(HDMI) in the TV then press the sound bar remote's button labeled HDMI.

That was it. Sound comes from the Toshiba bar and sub and the Amazon Fire TV remote volume control works as well. The Toshiba sound bar remote goes into hiding.
