Minimalistic Receiver

So, looking for a way to hook up a pair of wireless headphones and powered monitors to my TV. I only have optical out and don't really need hdmi switching... I can't find anything obvious out there. To integrate I am think I need remote control which I can override with my Samsung learning remote, as with my Panny the optical out wasn't variable.

I looked at emotiva and nothing obviously fit the bill. Since I am going active I really don't need a receiver, something more pre/pro ish... Surely someone has made the ideal gadget?

Maybe even active speakers with optical in and RCA out that has remote? Heh.

What is your price range?  What about something like the Outlaw Audio Model 975 (not that I have heard it or know much about it).  Of course, it does a lot more than you need.

Edit:   I missed the part about the wireless headphones, I don't know how one would hook those up.

Does the TV optical out downsample/mix to Stereo, or is it a 5.1 feed?

 * stereo optical out -  Something like a Matrix min i ?

- Balanced analog out for active monitors

- rca analog out to hook up to wireless headphones base station.

 

If not then a/v receiver  pre-outs using the dusty approach
