New S720W waiting for me under the tree. After ordering the receiver, a use case came to my mind that I hadn't researched when choosing the receiver. Can someone here tell me if the receiver supports this? I looked through the manual but didn't find exactly this use case covered.
I would love to connect a pair of Bluetooth earbuds and use that to listen to sound (downmixed to stereo of course) while exercising on a treadmill in my media area. I know the S720W supports INPUT via Bluetooth, like playing music from my smartphone, but can it use Bluetooth devices as speakers (and if so how do I tell it to do so)? Again, I tried to research this before asking silly questions, without an obvious result.
Basically, the treadmill makes a lot of noise, and rather than cranking up the home theater sound and driving my wife nuts, I'd rather just pair to a headset and work it that way.
If that's a no-go, I suppose I could figure a way to take the output of the phono jack and broadcast it... haven't looked into that, but it's probably not hard.
The source of AV is a computer running Emby Theater or similar apps, through the AVR, with video to the TV, or sometimes from the TVs smart apps like Netflix, back to the AVR.
Thanks folks. I'm looking forward to joining the S720W club!
