Wireless(somewhat) speaker solution

I stumbled upon an ebay add for the AV Sender:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/5-8GHZ-8-Cha...item27dc4520c6

And was wondering if anyone uses or has used this setup. I do installs regularly and this would be a real nice solution to fishing rear surrounds.

Rumor has it the 5ghz is the way to go..... I should just buy it and see before i experiment with real people....

That wouldn't work or do anything for surrounds. Its a just wirelessly transmit RCA signals. Meant for displaying different things. That will not work at all for rear speakers

Here is an actual wireless rear speaker kit

I think they are the same thing, one uses line level the other uses speaker level, which would allow me to use a less expensive receiver........

It would only work with self-powered surrounds.

I'm a happy Rocketfish wireless user. I use their wireless sub unit and their wireless speaker unit. Both perform as advertised, and I've had no issues with either unit.

Well, not really. The wireless speaker kit has a range of about 100' and doesn't need to be line of sight. The subwoofer kit, however, only has about a 30' range, and the transmitter and receiver have to be within line of sight of each other There are other subwoofer kits out there. I know Outlaw has one, and Hsu has one of their higher end subs that is wireless capable.
