How to setup digital audio output on this newly released MacBook Pro?

Text:

Have this newly released 16” MacBook Pro laptop for a few weeks, love it so far. However, when try to use the optical audio cable connect to my 7.2 channel receiver(from earphone jack port), there is no sound at all (I can see there is “external headphone” shows up from “sound” icon). The audio cable works on my old MacBook Pro 15 model, so, no clue if Apple just disable this feature on 16” model, anyone has similar experience or know solutions?

thanks,
