The new wireless solution eliminates the need to run audio cable to subs and rear speakers.
There's a lot to love about a great home theater, but there's plenty to lament as well. Running cables for example. It can be a pain, especially if you end up with spaghetti hiding behind your television. Cords can be an eyesore too, ruining the look of an otherwise classy room.
The WA-50 is designed to eliminate those problems. Using a transmitter and receiver, you can send wireless stereo audio up to 300 feet with line-of-sight, or 150 feet through walls. You can hook up powered subs and rear speakers, or pump sound to another room.
You'll need powered speakers for the WA-50 to work, and you'll need a receiver for each of the speakers you want to send sound to. The WA-50 can be had for $199, with each extra receiver coming in at $89.
