Okay guys I need some help here. My parents just renovated their living room and I need to set them up with an esthetic yet decent sounding 5.1 system. One major component is that it MUST be unobtrusive and take up little space and look good!

They already have a home theater room in the basement with an SVS sub and great system. This is for occasional movie watching, music, TV etc...

I am okay with having some wires behind the TV stand (Mitsubishi 73") however, the surround speakers and sub need to be wireless. If they are floor speakers are look pleasant it's a plus since nothing will be added to the wall.

What's the scoop on wireless these days? I'm only able to find wireless sub systems. Would really appreciate your help

There are wireless 5.1 systems (the side channels are wireless) but I don't know about the long term reliability of them. Keep in mind that they are only wireless in the sense that there are no wires connecting the side speakers to the receiver. The two speakers are connected by a wire to each other and one of them is connected to an outlet for power and receiving the signal.

I am okay with that. Can someone recommend a system that is reliable and good quality? I understand sound quality may suffer but that's the way it has to be

Do they really need a 5.1 system for this room? Maybe 3.1 would be okay? Then you don't have to worry about wireless speakers at all.
