So as the title states my Vizio 5.1 died all of a sudden and after everything I tied is but I do get power from the soundbar and sub woofer and with my budget not wanting top $400- I still have not seen any speakers that I can use.

So I will post this now for feedback and any questions and also I wanted to be able to hook up my Bluetooth headphones and that was something I have not found yet.

I was told by a tech guy that it wont work with my Vizio system I had because they both as the speakers and I like look at some systems that have that feature. Thanks! Also while I have speakers hooked for my Vizio 5.1 still that should be working so just buy a 2.1 and how would that work.? I know I I could not hook up to 4k videos from Amazon Prime due to missing audio so let me post before I think of another 10 ques :)

Check out the VIZIO SB46514 or SB36514 to add 4 up firing channels for discrete Atmos playback goodness.

Anyways I fixed the problem but I still like to know if any any other soundbar that has the ability to connect to my Bluetooth headphones and I just realized any way to hook them up to my current speakers?

I have bluetooth and two 900mhz wireless headphones connected to my TV. I have a Vizio 2.1 soundbar. I have it daisy chained together through countless splitters. You need a bluetooth receiver. It would be nice if they made soundbars that had a bluetooth receiver built in for headphones. The old school wireless headphones work better than the bluetooth due to the receivers. The TV's should have a bluetooth receiver as well for wireless cans. A dual sound option. It always seems to be one or the other, never both.
