Hi, Swimmer...although your idea is promising as with all sensible ideas you should be able to offer a realistic approach towards fruition. I can assure you that 99.99% of people that have bought any stereo, and/or home theatre equipment that wasnt purchased at Walmart for 99.00 would have a fit over your idea. Lets just say that a controller was created and in place to make this a reality. Of course you would need another controller to allow headphones to play at whatever volume the owner wanted, correct?. 1st big issue; How do you keep stereo owner from getting a 1/4 to RCA adaptor from Radio Shack for $5.99 and using the pre preamp headphone output to drive the amplifier? 2nd big issue; What about band practice? Last time i checked bands werent playing thru stereo equipment.3rd big issue; Rare high end tube stereo amplifiers with a solid state circuit attached? Youd have all the bottleheads ( and believe me, there are more tube stereo lovers than you think),calling for the inventors head. I have 6 more compelling arguements but there's no point. Im guessing if your idea was possible bro, it woulda already happened. Please dont get me wrong, ive wished for your invention many, many times. But the hurdles i mentioned are not big compared with the fact that the whole system would never be put in place until taxpayers vote it in, and that my friend is as likely as waking up tomorrow and finding out you sprouted wings...Take care, Ed.
