Thanks for the suggestion, but I think the answer is No.

The supported Audio outputs appear to be HDMI ARC and digital optical, 
both two channel linear PCM 48 kHz 16 bits, or Dolby Audio.

A footnote tells me to 'Connect your audio system to the HDMI IN 1 to 
route TV audio to your audio system'.  Strangely, my stereo doesn't have 
an HDMI socket.

Even the headphone socket seems to be an endangered species now. 
Headphones are wireless and audio systems are soundbars or other digital 
exotica.  I expect I shall stay with what I've got.
