Hey folks,

In case anyone is not familiar with what I'm talking about go over to: http://www.dolby.com/headphone/#logo

It's some processing that lets you hear surround sound info on any pair of headphones provided it's hooked up to some component that uses this chip. My question is does anyone know of any receivers or add on processors for using this NOW, or of any manufacturers plans to add this to their future lineups soon.

I figure new receiver models should be coming out soon, maybe someone will support this. It also seems to be better than Sony's solution where you have to use their headphone connected with a crummy infrared wireless system.

Also comments from anyone that has used this Dolby Headphone system, or even the Sony system...

Thanks,

Jason

Live TiVo and prosper!

I use the Sony headphones for late night viewing of material. It sounds great and the ir wireless is pretty good. It's expensive but it is more involving than regular headphones. I have no experience with the Dolby product.
