I am wanting to remotely listen to the audio form my Apple Tv3 (about 13feet away).

I would normoally jusy plug in a headphone extension cable into the TV but it does

not have a headphone output jack.


I was thinking it would be the best option to simply have the audio stream to my iphone 5

thus allowing me to watch my Apple TV late at night without waking the family,


I was wanting to use the iphoine 5 as the audio sort of like a remove headphone reciever.


If l could get airplay ro play the audio from the ATV3 to the iphone5 then my guess is that

would be the best solution.  Basically use the iphone 5 as an Airplay receiver / server.


Any other alternative would be great to hear.  Any solution that gives me good quality sound

without cables running all over the family room.

Apple TV, iOS 6.1.4
