Brand New Receiver No Headphone Jack???

by Dangerboy1399 / May 31, 2010 9:08 AM PDT

Just bought the Samsung HT-C6500 blu ray home theater system. There is no headphone jack, which is absolutely astounding to me. What it does have, is a USB port on the front. I'm running my sound through HDMI, and HAVE to be able to use my headphones for watching movies, playing games. Is there such a thing as an adapter that would allow me to plug my headphones into the USB port of the receiver, and would it work that way? I know there are some for pcs I believe, but is there one that would work on a home theater receiver?

BTW -- USB Port

I looked at your manual and the USB port is only good for watching stuff stored on a USB drive, it will not work with audio in any way as far as listening. So you can't get say a USB > Bluetooth > Wireless Headphones, well you can get it but it will not work.

It appears you can also update your firmware through the USB which should be handy if you are not connected to the internet.

You can use you USB drive for MPG's etc, but not as storage for BD-Live, if you even use BD-Live.

Unfortunately, the drawback of inexpensive HTIB systems

is that some connectivity and features that we have come to expect in full fledged audio separates have to be left out to keep costs down.
