Hi
We just moved and I left my Anthony Gallo system with our last house. Where I now want to set up our projector it would be very inconvenient to run cables to the front (screen) side of the room. I see lots of HTiB and other systems with wireless back speakers but nothing with wireless front - or are there now systems with back only that with acceptable performance? Is there a (hopefully reasonably priced) solution to this? I've trolled the forums but not seen this addressed.
Thanks for your help.

Wireless has many issues...
1. It isn't really wireless
2. most "wireless systems" only work well with full line level(no matter what they try to tell you)
3. interference comes from everything; microwave, baby monitors, cell phones, cordless phones...

To elaborate on Sams point #1 above, using Panasonic as an example, their wireless rear channels, have a box that you have to plug into an outlet and then you run the speaker wire from your "wireless" surround speakers to this box. Great solution for a renter, but not really wireless. Could you maybe just set everything up in the front and use wireless HDMI to the projector?

Thanks for the quick help, last time I looked wireless HDMI was really unimpressive, thanks for the tip!
