    Has anyone had any good success with a wireless option, either with a speaker that has a built-in receiver/amp or with an add on unit?
    Thanks!

    Harley,
    I used to run my L/R Surround wirelessly via the X-10 Wireless
    Sound Power Kit ( www.x10.com ) and it was "decent" for
    being wireless. It transmitted the RF signal at 2.5Ghz and
    for the most part was clear. You would hear faint "white noise"
    when there was no source material playing and occasionaly
    a device like the Microwave could cause interferance.
    The Sound Power kit supplies 10 watts RMS per channel and
    powered my AR 216PS Bookshelf's "okay" nothing to write home
    about though.

    Brett,
    Thanks for the feedback. They claim this is a new product:
    http://www.x10.com/products/x10_vk59a.htm.
    I assume it is basically the same and that it has an AC adapter, so you are not replacing batteries every week.
    Thanks again for the info!

    Harley,

    It's not a new product. That is what I had and it did not

    use batteries.
