Is there a device that I can connect to my Harman Kardon receiver for my
headphones?  Using the front panel phono jack cuts off all the speakers.

Connecting to the "audio out" is device specific and requires reconnecting
when switching from DVD to cable for example.

Need help,

There are several wireless headphone setups on the market that use a "box"
or receiver that is hooked up to the audio line outs on the back of your
receiver much like say, a tape deck or graphic equalizer that should output
*any* signal you have selected without having to deal with switching the
audio out cables between different outputs, say, dvd or cd or tv - you
understand? Just about every a/v reciever has a "tape out" or general audio
in/out option. Some even have a digital line input using either co-axle or
optical connection or both. The headphones themselves are battery powered
and receive the signal from the box receiver via line-of-sight.

although they are pricey. Because they are sold only in Japan, you'd need a
small vol;tage converter for US wall outlets. I have a Pioneer VSX-59TXi
receiver and these headphones work perfectly for late night listening when I
don't want to wake the wife and kid.

Sony, Audio Technica and a few other companies make similar pairs running
from around $100 all the way up to over $600 and many are sold here in the
USA. To get an idea what's out there, type in eBay's search "wireless
