    I am not sure if this is the right section for this, but here it goes. My wife wants to get a new system for our bedroom, but she wants to get a wireless system. Does anyone know of any good wireless 5.1 home theaters in a box?

    Hmm wireless is not true. Either you have to have an AC plug, or you have to have a speaker wire. Take your pick on this one, but it's still a wire.

    That is a good point. Do you have any that fall into either category?

    Tuck the speakerwire under the carpet when she isn't looking...I imagine wireless systems would introduce a lot of noise

    Sony makes a "wireless" system. It is a neat concept. It has a disc slot that hangs on the wall, along with the front 3 speakers. The guts of the system (including all the inputs/outputs) is in the sub. The wireless transmitter and remote sensor are in the center speaker. And the wireless receiver is in the rear speaker. But you still have to have 4 wires in front (3 speakers and the transport). You plug 1 of the rears in the wall AC outlet, and the other has to have a wire run to it across the back of the room. And if needed you can wire an additional wireless receiver to the rear speaker. So you end up with 3 wires in the back as well. Not to mention that all you audio and video wiring has to run across the floor to the sub. So, for wireless, it has a lot of wires.

    Thanks guys, I will look into the Sony system, otherwise we will have to work something out.

    At least I got her to agree to a 5.1 in the bedroom, she just wanted the fronts, she is 'slowly' starting to come around [​IMG]

    Brian, I looked on Sony's website and the only wireless system is for games, do you know of another?

    So that’s “wireless,” huh? [​IMG]

    Kevin,

    About the only thing a “wireless” system does is relieve you the problem or routing wires from the receiver to the rear speakers. But as you can see, there will still be wires of some kind.

    Actually, you’re more likely to end up with visible wires with a “wireless” system than a regular system. Speaker wires can be hidden in-wall, etc. , but there’s no hiding electrical cords.

    Regards,
    Wayne A. Pflughaupt
