Need recommendations for receivers with dolby headphone or something comparable .

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey all,  need some help finding an  A/V receiver with dolby headphone or something that works like it.

Have a Onkyo 808 now. Looking for something more modern that is easy to connect to the internet and have airplay if possible.

If I can keep it at around $800 that would be great.

Thanks for any help.

My understanding is that Dolby Headphone tends now to be only on the most expensive AVRs. For whatever reason, the AVR manufacturers haven't caught on to the fact that headphones are becoming more popular.

I believe Yamaha has a feature similar to Dolby Headphone that tends to get included on many models. Might check into that.

Yamaha receivers come with Silent Cinema, Yamaha's own headphone surround sound, seems to work decently with my headphones.

This is the receiver I have RX-V671 ($299 for a refurb), can drive my 600-Ohm Beyers, so I would assume your 300-Ohm Senn would work fine plugged straight into it.

Slightly newer model RX-V675 ($369 refurb), have no idea if it offers you any features you might need, compared to the RX-V671.
