It’s 2020, so there is no reason why your home theater should look like a scene from The Hurt Locker.
We’ve all seen it before, speaker cables stapled or taped along the crown molding in an attempt to hide them, or worse, hours of work trying to snake your cables through your walls and ceiling so that they can get to the other side.
Rather than drilling large holes in your wall or creating that “rustic”, vintage, Farmhouse look with wires draping across your ceiling, consider a much more aesthetic and simpler alternative.
Out with the old, in with the new
We have Bluetooth, we have wireless CarPlay, and at that: we even have wireless charging! It should be no surprise when I tell you there’s also wireless speaker transmitters.
At my home, I use the Rocketfish Universal Wireless Rear Speaker Kit, and it has worked flawlessly. Not only is there no discernible audio latency, there is also no quality degradation or radio interference. The transmitter has no connection issues, even when objects such as a coffee table, feet and legs are placed in front of it, nor even during an impromptu game of Twister.
How it works
Setting it up was easy. I just plugged in the transmitter to my receiver’s surround left / surround right outputs using regular speaker cables. The rear receiver went under my couch, and outputted to my surround left / surround right speakers.
I flipped the switch, and that was it.
No more cables running across my floor “hidden” underneath the rug, nor messing with the walls.
