Do any Roku products have cables to connect audio to a stereo receiver?

I want to connect Roku to a monitor that has no speakers.   Do any Roku products currently available have audio cables that can connect to a stereo receiver for audio while the Roku connects to the monitor for video?

Yes some Ultra's have optical outs. 

Also you can fashion earphones out of many remotes.

This PCM plug outlet for headphones also works fine as a Stereo lead.

If youre using HDMI cables I've seen Monitors with audio outs also and certainly speakers.

It really depends on the Hardware you have.

From now on if people dont upvote me and do as I say I will consider holding my breath and selling my Roku's.

The Roku Ultra from 2016 (model 4640) had an optical out, but that has been replaced by subsequent models that only output audio via HDMI.  You might be able to find a used 4640 on sites like eBay, but I'd be cautious due to their age.

You can get an HDMI adaptor that splits the audio out via additional output cables.  See this Amazon search.
