Need some advice.

I would like to have a simple wireless speaker/set of speakers for background tunes in a 20x25ft garage conversion into bar/billiard room/man cave. These would used with either a smart phone or laptop to listen to internet radio. It would be nice to use these wireless speakers with the TV in the room as well but it is not a requirement.

Big Question: Do I need more than one wireless speaker to do this?

I have used most of my budget for this conversion already and am looking into some lower cost options. Does anybody have any advice on either of the products below, or if these would suite the above needs?

Sony SRS-BT100 Bluetooth Speaker (roughly 100$)
dubdubdub.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/567645-REG/Sony_SRSBT100.html

and

Altec Lansing inMotion SoundBlade (roughly 60-80$)
dubdubdub.amazon.com/Altec-Lansing-SoundBlade-Bluetooth-Speakerphone/dp/B0013N3T7O/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

Thanks in advance for any assistance. My apologies if I have missed a thread or posted this in the incorrect place. Feel free to delete/move/flame this post.

ps. sorry I couldn't post full URLs as a first time poster.

What is forcing you to go with a wireless option? Do you have a stand alone source in the house you are wanting to stream to the garage? what is the distance?

If you want to know if a product is "good", please tell us your definition of "bad" for an understood point of reference. Do you want subjective opinions or objective facts?

Thank you for the reply!

I'm not really set on any type of setup. I'm such a layman I don't really know what I need. All the sources will be in the same 20x25ft room. I know that would like to like to be able to use my laptop/droid to play groove shark & Pandora along with mp3s and I don't want to have to plug those in anywhere.

I'm sure that there is a better way to do what I'm talking about, I just don't know what that is.

Thanks again,

I've never tried it, but this looks like an interesting solution for that kind of setup:
