I need some help. I just moved and sold my home theater with my old house and now I need to start all over again in my new one. The problem is that the new room I need to set up isn't going to allow me to wire my surrounds without wires sticking out all over the place.

I've searched for some good wireless speakers that I could hook up to my existing components but am not sure which ones are good. Anyone have an y experience with any that are really good? (or bad?)

thanks

Ok, I see. there are many well known brands . For example, JBL, Bose. There brands are really good. But the problem is there are very expensive. eek.gif
For some cheaper brands, I think Microlab is not bad. I think they are with high price-performance ratio.

Keep in mind that there's no such thing as completely wireless. Wireless speakers have on-board amplification, which requires AC power. You don't need wires from the AVR to the speakers, but you do need wires from the speakers to a AC outlets.

Can't agree more with you. Even those wireless speakers need wire to get charge!cool.gif

If the problem is getting the speakers to the other side of the room but you could run wires in the same wall you could use a wireless transmitter to an amplifier and them run the speaker wire up the wall from the amplifier. This method allows you to use whatever speakers best suit your application and can match the other speakers in your system.  Something like this would work, there are other brands as well.
