I have tried everything I can to connect a bluetooth transmitter for my wireless headphones to the NR1508. The preouts dont have enough level to hear on the headset, and it doesnt matter, since it appears there is no way to turn off the speakers without cutting off the preout.
The only way I have found to do it, is to physically get up, and plug the transmitter into the headphone jack which cuts off the speakers fine, but I was hoping to be able to have the speakers play at low volume while still being able to walk around the house with the headphones at the same time. It does not appear to be possible.
When I was using a Tivo bolt, I plugged the transmitter into its audio jack, and it worked great, but the new Xfinity X1 box does not have an audio output jack. The X1's bluetooth transmitter is about 1 second behind the video so its unusable.
I also tried an HDMI audio extractor, which, worked perfectly except it takes the TV about 5 minutes of snow before the picture appears when changing inputs to a 4K source (assuming its HDCP). Also, with this setup, the Roku video cuts in and out in 4K mode.
Anyone have any suggestions on getting audio out of the Marantz without changing anything else??
