Wireless speakers for surround channels in a 5.1 setup.

Hi there, I have a classic 5.1 setup. The L-R-C speakers and the sub are at the front of the room all wired together, and my surround receiver sits below my tv cabinet.. I do not wish to run ugly looking standard AV cables all the way to the back of my room to connect my surround speakers to; what would you suggest me to do ? I either need super-thin and invisible speaker cable of some sort, or need a basic wireless sender / receiver setup with powered speakers at the back, or alternatively a passive sender and an active receiver. Please advise.

Since 5.1 systems are designed to have matched speakers, I would suggest sticking with the ones you have and getting a sender/receiver and another amplifier.  This is a good sender/receiver http://www.amphony.com/products/wireless-audio-transmitter-receiver.htm

Hello, are you a fan of Newegg.com? They seem to have a variety here - http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&N=-1&isNodeId=1&Description=wireless+speakers&x=0&y=0

I personally am not sure which would be best for you, but there are reviews on each product that could help. If you haven't used Newegg before they are reliable and typically ship quickly. Hope this gets you started!
Do you have carpet and baseboard in the room? The speakers wires can be hidden in the baseboard if you'd like to try that. I apologize ahead of time if this is not an option.


Keep in mind that wireless speaker systems still uses some wires. For instance, the wireless receiver will most likely need plugged into a power source and possibly wires to the speakers too from the receiver. It depends upon the wireless solution that you choose.
