Question HT1075 MHL audio options?

Sorry if this has already been covered, I'm unable to find much info: if I put an Amazon Fire stick in the MHL HDMI port, what are my audio out options (ignoring the built in speaker)? Am I able to get multi channel audio out via the 1/8" output port? I always thought those cables were stereo output.

Thanks.

No just stereo from the jack. The FireTV box has an optical out and could send multi channel audio to an AVR.

Fire Stick doesn't, just like Chromecast. I really like the idea of the MHL port but it doesn't seem to offer much functionality.
