Hi Guys,
I have a set of Sennheiser RS 180 wireless headphones for late night viewing (keeps missus happy if she haves early night :) ).

I am thinking of getting a Samsung PS60e6500 and moving my now ageing KRP500a to another room.....BUT there is no headphone out connection on the Samsung, so is there another way I can connect my RS180s to the Sammy, I have no amp or anything like that, I just connected them to headphone connector with the KRP so I am a bit stumped.
I have trawled the internet looking for an answer but there is a lot of confusing info out there so I thought it best to consult the experts on here.:):)

Any one able to help info greatly received.:lease:

The TV's dedicated audio output is the digital optical connection on the back. You could convert that output to an analogue audio signal to connect your headphones. You'd need a converter like this:

SPDIF Converter

You'd then need a phono to 3.5mm adapter/cable to plug the headphones into the converter.

Considering that an A/V receiver will provide a headphone output, it may not be such a bad idea. Even if you just had a stereo set of speakers to the receiver, you could easily improve the system sound quality over the TV’s speakers.
