Default Wireless Home Theater Systems

I could not find any discussion on the subject of a true wireless home theater system, so I've posted this thread....

It seems there aren't many products like this on the market except for Bose, which is very expensive, my range is $1,000 max. Perhaps the technology isn't made yet for my budget.

If anyone knows or heard of any legit systems, your thoughts would be appreciated....

When you say wireless are you referring to true 5.1 sans wires system or 5.1 withe wireless sub?

Ideally, just speakers that don't require any wires. Preferably a 5.1 setup. Any components that are not speakers that require power chords and are setup near the tv are fine, thanks

To my knowledge, at this time only Aperion makes such systems, and as expected, out of your price range. Also going wireless might make future upgrades difficult since there doesn't seem to be a standard between brands.

Is running speaker wires that complicated for you? There are ways to minimize the unaesthetic side of it.

Running speaker wire is a bit of a hassle for me, I'm sure I could figure it out, but dont want to invest to much time, just want something to carry me the next few years until I get a larger place. I'm not much of an audiophile, I think I would be content with 5.1 for at least 4-5 years.

Well if it is for a few years, but planning on moving, I wouldn't shop for now (unless you go for a cheap HTiB with wireless rears, the harder ones to wire obviously, and upgrade later). I would invest in a good 3.1 system for now and at a later date when you move complete your system. A good 3.1 is surprisingly satisfying and easy to wire.

Aperion has a true 5.1 SS setup, and Dynaudio does have a 2-ch/multi-ch wireless setup, much more expensive that they launched over a year ago.
