Hello! I know nothing about audio equipment, and I've been trying to learn about this stuff online and am a little confused. So, I hope someone here can help me.
I have a pair of Grado SR80i headphones, and I'd like to use them to listen to my TV at night so I don't disturb others. I have a Toshiba 26HF66 TV from about 2006; it's a tube TV, but HD. It doesn't have a headphone jack, so I bought an RCA Y-cable to plug the headphones into, and I get no sound doing that. If I plug the cable into the DVD player and play a DVD I get sound, but it's not loud and I can't adjust the volume. So, I think I need an amplifier, and I don't know what type to get--there are so many out there. I'd prefer not to spend more than $70. In addition, I usually use this TV to watch Netflix movies through my Nintendo Wii, so I don't know if it would be better to connect to the Wii instead, somehow? At any rate, I'd like an amplifier that doesn't use batteries so I can plug it into the wall and not worry about recharging all the time (but not if those are way more expensive).
I hope I've included enough information! Thanks for any advice you can give me.
