Hi everyone!

For some time now I've been thinking of acquiring a surround sound system for my home. Been recently digging in these forums and I have to say they're amazing, and I've learnt a lot about the possibilities I have to accomplish this. First I thought about getting a HTiB, but then I jumped to the idea of a more custom solution, getting an AVR and speakers separately, since I was planning to invest some money on this. Having this in mind, I have one question I haven't been able to answer myself regarding the rear speakers. I have to say I don't like wires, and for the rear speakers is too much of a hassle to have them running through the middle of the room, so I'd like them to be wireless. I know there are addons/converters you connect to the AVR and the speakers to make them wireless, but I was wondering if there was an AVR with a buil-in wireless solution for this, as well as speakers, so I wouldn't have to use these kind of converters.

Thanks!

AFAIK no. You cannot send amplifier level signals to drive speakers wirelessly anyway. You will need powered speakers if you go wireless

What do you mean by "powered speakers"? Could you post me a link to some model so I can check it out?

You're pretty much stuck with the add-on converters. I've researched this quite a bit and have come to the conclusion that it's not quite ready for prime time. There's hope with the new WISA wireless standard (witness Aperions $3k 5.1 wireless system). WISA has a lot of big name mfg's on board, and they say that more products should roll out by years end.

The Aperion wireless speakers were recommended awhile back by AVSForum founder David Bott.
