Wireless headphone problem

  electroplater 15:32 09 Aug 2008

I have recently purchased a pair of wireless headphones from Aldi. They work well conected to the headphone jack of various radio and tv sets but will not work on my Sony hi-fi system. Can I connect to the speaker outputs of the hi-fi either in place of the speakers or paralled across the existing speakers. I appreciate that the volume control will affect the sound level in these circumstances.

Do you know?
My Lidl ones work perfectly with TV/Sony Hi-Fi and even minature FM radio [you know from an X mas crfacker]

I think the problem is a physical one, there is o voltage on the Jack contacts but it looks to be a major task to get to the inside of the fitting hence the interest in the speaker connectors

Normally plugging in phones - isolates speakers
What happens in your case- do the speakers 'go off'
on plug in and still no phone out put- or do the speakers keep on going - indicating a dud socket?
It could also be too the output is wrong for the base station- check out the output value in the Sony hand book
If nothing else works as you suggest double up on the speaker outputs.
So to Maplins then
A line earphone jack and a bit of wire to make speakers connectors.

Now does you system have auxiliary/extension speaker connections?
If so connect to there

The speakers go off but either no output or wrong for base station.
I will get a phono to phono lead and cut it in half and piggy back onto the speaker outputs.
No aux outputs on back of cabinet.
