7.1 Pre Out To 7.1 Headphones Possible? My Headphones Amp Supports an Optical Connection So If There Is Anyway To Get My Pre Out Converted To Optical That Would Be Great!!
I own a Denon avr-2310 amp and the headphones i would like to hook these up to are the Steelseries Wireless H
I know i could simply use the Optical output on the amp, but its already being used + i like a challenge and would like to see if there is any possible way without having to purchase another AMP!

You could use a SPDIF ( coax digital) to Toshlink ( optical) adapter. Look at eBay or Google for it.
There is no such thing as 7.1 headphones ....as far as I know! The 7 is for 7 ( speaker) drivers all around you and .1 is the subwoofer. How do you implement that on one's head in headphones form ? Why a 'subwoofer' on headphones ?
There used to be headphones with four angled drivers ( 2 on each side) called surround headphones from Koss and others. Don't see such things nowadays.
However 7.1 signals could be mixed down to 2 channel stereo but I doubt many people want that. Some receivers provide for this I think. Google it.

Usually preout do not have that gain to drive headphones easily.I tried Yamaha AVR preout,but sound level was very less compared to Headphone out.
