Not bad price. Wal-Mart closed these out for $30 bucks in late October but that was a very hard one to find. These are selling for over $70 on Eebay from amateur sellers.

Deal is dead, was a good price, though, I paid $5 less for this model, refurbed, from Woot, a month ago. Same price after shipping charges.

Thanks for the heads up. Gone now, but pretty good price. I wasn't able to get one at Walmart on clearance earlier this year.

I have an older high-end sound bar that doesn't have HDMI-in, only optical-in. This is the last Roku that has an optical audio out, so I'm looking for one at a good price.

If your soundbar is only two channel, you can connect your devices to the TV, and feed the soundbar from the optical output of your TV (assuming it has one).

Thanks, I tried that. For some reason my TV was designed to output audio over optical only for TV channels. Doesn't work from other video sources. It's an older Sony. I don't know why they designed it that way.

That's unfortunate. Assuming you've played around with the settings, you can also try something like this [monoprice.com].
