    Anyone know of a commercially available Infrared Link for Audio?

    My surfing only seems to find the "senior project" stuff :-(

    Well why didn't you say so...

    and use that EE PE to design a wall-wart power supply. ;-)
    (Personally, I'd go for NiMH AAAs.)

    I vaguely remember IR ones.

    WHAT??!! You mean you *don't* use sacks of
    Monster Cable to listen to your audio??!

    You'll NEVER earn an audiophool merit badge
    (and whiz-bang decoder ring) that way.

    I already have the whiz-bang decoder ring, and the Lone Ranger map
    set... they came packed in Kix cereal when I was a kid ;-)

  11. How about: Sucks of Monster Cable-ism... no prices shown ;-)

    Service to my country? Been there, Done that, and I've got my DD214 to
    prove it.

    I'll go for that. I despise sites that don't cite prices!

    (grammar/spelling test for Eeyore and Homer ;-)

  13. My searches turned up some stuff By Unwired, but only headphones(recievers)
    and transmitters.

    Lots of RF audio links though.

    Try 60' line-of-sight from my office to the Great Room audio
    equipment, and 16' ceilings, so no one's head will get in the way ;-)

  15. How is IR going to work in this application? Unless you are the
    proverbial man living in the glass house, that is.
  16. I forget who makes them (maybe THX), but the systems for hearing
    assistance at movie theaters are based on IR. There's a transmitter on
    the ceiling and the headsets 'look' up so they are not blocked by others

    Radio Shack sells IR linked headphones intended for TV sets. They work
    pretty well for those who need a louder audio without imposing it on
    everyone else.

    Jim - do you want an audio link or the IR headphones that are used for the
    hard of hearing in a theatre? You want to build of buy?
  19. Jim Thompson

    Jim Thompson Guest

    I want an audio link, to send a remote audio source to my home theater

    I'd prefer to simply buy, but I guess I could cobble up a link by
    tearing open the headphones.
