Yamaha YHT-S401 rear speakers....best options

Hi all,

I hav this soundbar in my front room, and would like to utilise the rear speaker option, but preferably with wireless speakers.

A few questions:
  • Does anyone actually have this set up and does it make a difference.
  • Anyone recommend some standalone wirlesss speakers I could use to have this working if it is worth it that is.

P.S. I got rid of my old wired dvd all in one system, and am happy with this soundbar, but actually miss the 5.1, as virtual surround sound I don't believe actually cuts it.

Anyway, as always any advice is appreciated.

Page 31 of your owners manual states: "Surround Left and Right (1KHz, 1% THD, 6 Ohm) 45w + 45w"

It is rated to drive 6 ohm speakers, so find a speaker that is 6 ohms or higher (most are 8 ohms nominal) and you will be fine.
