So my Wife has finally told me I can buy a BIG SCREEN TV! I am so happy!

Off we go to Costco and I start to check out the huge selection of sets....I can't make up my mind..

I need a TV that has a head phone jack. Ask the "expert" in the TV section if any of the HUGE selection of sets has such a thing.

"No."

"No?"

"No. They don't make sets with headphone jacks, anymore. Everyone wants surround sound."

"I don't."

"Well, I can only tell you that you won't find any with headphone jacks."

So, I tell my Wife and we go home with a brand new vacuum cleaner.

Anyway, I can't believe there isn't ONE brand of Flat Screen TV for me with head phone jacks...Anybody know of any brand....

Surely, you could kill two birds with one stone.

Get the BIIIIG Screen TV, and get the surround sound.. Have the cinema experience...

Im sure you could find a set of surround sound speakers that have a headphone jack in one of the many speakers...

And there are also simpler wireless headphone systems that can plug into the RCA audio out connectors.

Christmas comes early this year...
You can pick out your favorite TV and still get a headphone connection. All you have to have is an RCA male to 3.5mm female connector to plug into the RCA-out on the back of your cable box or maybe TV. The TV will need RCA if you do not have a cable box. I'm not saying this is the best way, but it does increase your range of TVs.

And since I don't know your level of experience with TVs and connections, I Paint-ed a diagram to show you how it would work.
