[access-uk] Re: Audio Help Requested

hi Rodger,

I use wireless headphones to listen to my TB, they have a volume control on them and as they are re-chargeable they are also quite economic. The volume level is good and can clearly be ajusted up or down, the wife says she can hear the damn thing in the nexst room!LOL! Good luck!

Thanks Ray. I'll look later this evening and study what they have available. Maybe a complete change of equipment would solve the problem. I haven't got a cold at the moment so I have some breathing space to investigate and obtain anything suitable.

Roger, you seem to be getting some useful replies and it is hard to find what
I am sure you are after; something to boost the audio output of a TB player
to feed a enhanced level output to headphones.


My instinct is to ask if you've approached Hagger Electronics. One device
I've found might appear to fit the bill, but I think it might have a built-in
microphone rather than the input socket you will need to connect a device like
this to a TB player. Nonetheless, take a look at:


http://www.hagger.co.uk/products/portable_hearing_system/stereo_amplified_list
ener_3_band_hru1175/itemid_379/

This little inexpensive box also inlcudes some equalisation which might be
useful.


There are more devices in this general area at:

Their contact info is:

E-mail: sales@xxxxxxxxxxxx:

Other than this, the health service might be able to supply something along
the lines of what you are looking for.


Trouble with musicians' headphone amps is they tend to have many outputs as a
rule, more than you would want. I'll email you off list if I find anything
more on this though as my Mum is very hard of hearing, and a device that would
discretely amplify the telly etc would be very useful for her too.

Hi Peter

That's what I do use but I didn't go into details as most people, me
included, don't understand too well how they work. So it's easier to refer
to them as headphones. But my understanding is they will not increase the
sound beyond that put out by the book reader without an amplifier or other
means of sound booster.

Doo you use hearing aids? If so, you  can get a portable induction loop
which will plug into devices like what you are talking about.

Hi All

This may not be strictly an access issue so I beg the indulgence of the
moderator. As a lot of you may know I have a very severe hearing loss and
listen to
the Talking Books with the aid of a variety of high tech devices. I won't
go
into them suffice to say they are on the lines of a variation on
headphones. My problem is using these cuts the volume output of my Victor
Reader considerably. This is not normally a problem but when I get a cold
it
_always reduces my hearing ability making it below the level of the
Victor's
output causing me to stop reading until the cold is gone. The colds
season
is not too far away now and I have given finding a solution considerable
thought. I have decided, rightly or wrongly, a solution would be to plug
a
small amplifier into the headphone socket of the Reader and then to plug
my
headphones into the amplifier thus increasing the level of output.


I have visited the Maplin site, mainly because I have a branch close by
at
http://www.maplin.co.uk/Search.aspx?criteria=amplifiers&doy=10m9&source=15

and I have searched for their stock. The choice is bewildering which is
where my problem comes


in. I have not a lot of knowledge on sound matters as it's not a field
I've
dabbled into very much

I list 3 I've picked out which I feel may serve my purposes and would be
most appreciative of any comments or advice,


A93FY, N66AW, N67AW

There is a long list of amplifiers on the site and these are just three
I've
picked out which may be totally wrong so I stand ready to be corrected.

Any of you hi-fi buffs out there who can
advise me will be greatly appreciated.

Roger
