I have a Samsung HL67A750 TV and Pioneer VSX-521 AVR. I have lost a lot of the high frequencies in my hearing and things like bells and such I cant hear but the wife can. So I bought some Turtle XP500 wireless surround sound headphones. They have a built in equalizer and with them I can hear everything. The problem is If I use the headphone jack on the AVR it kills the speakers. Im running everything through HDMI to my Tv, but the digital audio on the TV is off unless Im using the TV on a TV channel.
What I want tis to be able to hear the sound through the headphones without killing the speakers. Right now I have the Headphone transmitter hooked up to the front speaker outputs, not the best solution for many reasons. Does anybody have a way to get the audio through the headphones and speakers at the same time? I would like to be able to use the surround sound in the headphones.
The only way I know of is to open the receiver and wire the headphone jack to not disconnect the speakers when a plug is inserted.
