I have recently purchased SONY MDR-DS6500 wireless headphones. Wireless transmitter have two inputs (1) Audio In : Optical Digital Input (2) Analog Stereo Input mini jack. I would like to hook it up to my current set up of Yamaha RXV-575 receiver.
Currently Yamaha is connected with TV with HDMI ARC. All other comonents such as blu-ray player / PVR are connected to Yamaha with HDMI inputs. Receiver seems to have Optical In but not Optical out.
Per Yamaha website, "the best connection for any type of headphones - wired or wireless - would be the front head jack on the front of the receiver" which seems to anolog. Is this really preferred over digital optical? What is the best connection method? Can I make optical work?
