Roku with optical out for projector

I want to connect a Roku to my projector. I keep seeing stuff about a Roku with an “optical out” for audio. What model Roku do I need for that? I cannot find it. 
Thanks!

Re: Audio

The Roku Ultra had a separate optical digital audio output, but that feature was discontinued 2 or 3 years ago. They only way I know of to get a separate audio output with the current product line is to run the HDMI output through a device that can extract the audio from the HDMI signal and output it separately.
