Everything these days is wireless, from your car remote control, to your cellphone, and even your internet connection. It’s only logical that the evolution of home entertainment will follow the wireless trend! By buying a wireless surround sound system, you can have a setup that looks just as good as a wired system, without all the clutter of a traditional setup.
We all love having a home entertainment system, but it can be rather restrictive with all the cables. With a wireless surround speaker system, you can take your show anywhere! Wouldn’t it be great to go outside and have to surround sound on your patio? You could get your speakers anywhere in the house, so you could enjoy music and tv in your kitchen while preparing meals, or when you’re showering or doing yard work.
Unlike traditional wired systems, you don’t need to worry about drilling holes, bunched up wires or carrying around heavy equipment. With a wireless surround speaker system, you can tailor your entertainment system to your own needs, without worrying about cord lengths. Remember though wireless isn’t exactly wireless! Subwoofers and large speakers still need to be plugged into a power strip or outlet and can’t run on batteries. A virtual surround system gets rid of subwoofers and large speakers by emulating the effects of right surround.
What to look for in a system depends on what you need and what you want to spend on your wireless surround setup.
