Thats the great part... companies are already starting to develop small class D amps that have wireless built in. Example...

Great job Scott and David!! Always a joy to watch HTgeeks and it's cool to get to know you and your theater space David. The topic of what percentage one should dedicate to audio and video is at the very least a subjective area. But without one or the other its not home theater so 50% should be dedicated to video and 50% dedicated to audio. Personally i would argue more towards audio because relatively speaking, anyone with a dark room and the right gear correctly calibrated can have reference video. Now with audio one can have the best equipment in the world and put it in the same room and even setup correctly is far from being reference without an acoustic plan and the room being designed for the best audio. Subjective or not, it takes much more work to get great sound than to get great picture quality. Thats if your striving for the best and I think many of us here are. Of course there are some that aren't as picky or serious about the hobby. But once you see and hear the best it's hard not to want that for yourself. Just my two cents. Again great job guys!
