I have an old old denon 2801 that Im trying to find some use for. I want to plug wireless headphones into it and use it to switch audio on a secondary TV. I can get the optical connection to come out the pre outs, but the pre outs are only center, surround and front so I dont get the whole audio all at once.
I tried plugging the headphones into rec out and setting rec out properly but nothing comes out. I read something that indicated that digital sources cant come out rec out. But is that only as digital? Shouldnt they be converted to analog by the AMP?
I only need regular stereo, can the amp do a stereo conversion from digital to rec out (or even to the pre outs so the entire signal comes out)?
Alternately will the headphone jack have the right signal? I dont want to buy the very rare 1/4 headphone to RCA female connector if the headphone also wont pass the audio
Any other solutions?
The wireless headset base has two male RCA jacks.
