Getting bluetooth headphones & speakers with independent volume on a Pioneer elite

I couldn't find a forum for bluetooth so I'm posting it here.

I have a Pioneer VSX-70 Elite downstairs in our home theatre and want to add an external bluetooth transmitter that has ‘line in’ RCA plugs. I’d like both my speaker system and the bluetooth headsets working at the same time with independent volumes. My wife would listen through the speaker system and I would listen through the bluetooth headsets. OK, at 75 my hearing isn’t very good.

I also have a Pioneer VSX-50 Elite in the living room and would like to purchase a second bluetooth transmitter for that one. Hopefully it’s the same setup.

I’ve spent hours trying to figure out how it can be done on the receivers but have just about given up.

Any help on my dilemma is appreciated.

If this is the one:

p 28 says you can attach an external front channel amp. Set it to Large.
This probably means you receive full range sound.
I expect this output to vary with the volume control but as Bluetooth headphones have their own, you can adjust.

p. 32 says you can get a Bluetooth adapter. Description is a bit unclear but I do think it is a receiver hence you can play what is on your phone but you can't play to a headphone.

p.30 is probably the one you need.
You can connect a second zone using the RCA out.
Connect the BT transmitter to Zone2

p 89 tells you that you can set the volume of this output to fixed. Your BT headphone now works completely independent!
