Hi there,


I have an Onkyo HT-R530 receiver and want to add some wireless headphones to my A/V setup for watching TV/Movies, etc.

When I use headphones at the moment, I simply plug my cans into the front plug and off I go.

However, with a wireless solution, I am hoping for a more seamless integration. I like the idea of simply lifting the headphones off the base station and away I go..no plugging/unplugging of the headphone jack.

Is it possible to use the speaker set B for this? Has anyone done anything like this before? If not speaker set B, how about any other solutions?


Cheers,


Pat.

Thanks for the quick reply, I've been too busy at work to try any of this until today.

I just had a look at the back panel of my receiver and I don't have any valid outputs, analogue or digital that I can use.

The only outputs are for Tape or Video 1, but tape 1 has no inputs assigned and I can't duplicate the input source across selection.

Video 1 is already assigned to my optical audio input from the cable tv box.

I have a dedicated headhone plug on the front panel of the receiver, but I am hoping to find a solution that leaves all outputs going at the same time, allowing me to selectively mute whatever outputs I wish manually.

This is why I am hoping to use speaker set B, so that both the headphones and main speakers are always active.

The speaker set B has outputs for L/R with a positive & ground wire for each channel.

Is it possible for me to snip of the wires of the current headphone plugs, and re-wire the positive wires directly into the speaker set B plugs, with them both sharing a common ground wire split into 2 (as I believe it is already done that way on the actual headphone plugs??)


Cheers,


Pat.
