Sony STR-DH790 Receiver - Wireless headphones?


Just purchased the STR-DH790 Receiver but need some advise on connecting wireless headphones.

I have xbox one / nvidia shield TV passing thru amp via HMDI & therefore I assume require a wireless transmitter to connect to receiver & not TV to allow my wireless headphones to work?

The amp has annoyingly no Audio out connection - therefore how do I connect transmitter??

Your STR_DH790 has a headphone output, so you just need a transmitter that connects to the headphones socket. I asked the same question a while back, so take a look at the suggestions I received (Bluetooth transmitter with AptX for hifi). I picked up the Avantree Oasis Plus (Oasis Plus) plus a USB power adapter, with two connectors, so that I could also charge the WH-1000XM3. There are cheaper options.


The headphone jack, on the front of the unit, will be your only option for a transmitter along with the advice given above. Bluetooth though will not be as good as a hardwired headphone.
