AVI 9.1 takes Toslink Optical but you can order them with Coax input (optional)

Was wondering why you wouldn't just bring audio out from the player, so I looked up the MovieMate....it is the player! I also see on the rear there is a headphone stereo jack. So the quick fix is just use at headphone (3.5mm) to Stereo RCA cable into the powered speaker of your choice.
That will give you time to find a basic external DAC, to your liking, that converts coax to RCA or coax to toslink.
Thanks for the replies. I did find the Cakewalk MA-15D for $179 street price and they have digital coax input. In the mean time, I went into my handy dandy audio closet and pulled out my RedWine Audio Reali-T which is a battery powered class-T amp, pre-amp and DAC in a tiny little box. For now I'm going to use the RWA's digital input and whopping 8 watts/channel of class-T power and see if it will work. If not, I'll use the line-level output of the Reali-T to connect to a more powerful amp or a pair of powered speakers (also neatly tucked away in the handy dandy audio closet!).
Thanks, and Enjoy,
I ended up buying a pair of Rowland/Cakewalk MA-15D studio monitors for $179. The Cakewalk monitors have toslink and coax inputs and analog inputs via standard RCA connectors. For our first movie night I connected the projector using the headphone analog outputs as suggested by Edo. They sounded GREAT! I got several comments from movie-goers that the sound was great for an outdoor movie. Also, the inflatable (think bouncy house) move screen frame worked great and it is huge!
So, the Epson Movie Mate 60, inflatable screen frame w/screen and the Cakewalk monitors combine for an excellent outdoor movie experience.
