I have to admit that I was a bit leary of wireless speakers but after actually trying these I was bowled over. My girlfriend and I enjoy listening to BBC Radio on the internet with the problem being that we would need to sit in the office to do so. With these nifty speakers all I had to do was hook up the transmitter to my computer and proceed to put speakers in every room in my house. I am running six speakers in various locations of my two story house off one transmitter with perfect sound quality everywhere. I have cranked them up a few times with music also, (think about how many MP3 files you can fit on your computer and play at parties) and the sound quality is excellent. I can hardly wait until summer, when I can listen to the Red Sox game on the internet while BBQ'ing in the backyard. By far one of the best purchases I have ever made. Buy these!

I've had these speakers for a couple of years now. They are surprisingly well-amplified and good sounding. Each speaker accepts eight (8) C batteries, which give it enough power to be quite loud. The batteries also last quite a while. Each speaker also has a hefty power supply, which is NOT a "wall wart" (yay)! The black box is in the middle of the power cable. Advent didn't wimp out on the power.
The utility of these wireless speakers is great. You can take them anywhere you are, and hear the stereo. Range is about 100ft or more, and less through walls (even less through brick).
A switch on each speaker allows it to play the left channel, the right channel, or monaural (a mix of left and right). This makes it possible for you to use the speakers in stereo pairs, or as independent monaural speakers. Very versatile!
The only caveat is that if you live in an apartment complex, you may get interference from cordless phones. The transmitter is tunable, so you can usually avoid the interference. If you think of these speakers as FM radios, and expect similar performance, you won't be disappointed. But if you are deeply annoyed by occasional interference, I'd stick with long wires.
These speakers are one of the few products I happily use every day. Great for bringing the music to places that would be hard to reach otherwise.

I have owned these speakers for a about a year. I bought them at a sidewalk sale in my neighborhood in Brooklyn. I use them to broadcast the audio from various satellite channels to where I sit at my computer. The distance is no more than 30 feet so I cannot say how they would function over much longer distances.
As opposed to some of the reviewers, I have had no difficulty adjusting the frequency. I have very occasional static interference but for the most part this is a non issue. In essence, I use them in an urban environment on one floor of a brownstone here in Brooklyn so I cannot say how they might operate in your neighborhhood. I have them set for mono as this this tends to minimize whatever small amount of interference there may have been. This has a slight effect on frequency response but it is not major.
Please note that the fidelity is quite good but it is NOT audiophile quality so it is probably good to take that into account. All in all, I very good product.

I am very pleased with these speakers. As a matter of fact I just ordered a second pair for the school. We use the cafeteria to show videos to two or three classes at a time. I use an LCD projector to enlarge the picture and I place these speakers in the back of the cafeteria so the students in the back can hear clearly.

For the past 9mos. these speakers have performed as expected. Their rich bass is great for listening to CD or simply a football game off radio while on the screen porch.

8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By David Williams on December 24, 2006
I know that there are very mixed reviews for this product. A couple of points -- I've generally found that when the speakers are having a problem, it's something that I hadn't considered -- like something lying on the speakers' power cords, etc. Most important -- keep in mind that the transmiter has it's own frequency adjustment, so if you're adjusting the speakers and can't get them to sound right, try adjusting the frequency on the transmitter, and then readjusting the speakers. Yes, the power supplies on the speakers are huge. And I've only tried them to a distance of about 75 feet, all on the same floor. But overall, I like the sound, and it beats stringing cable. Note: Mine have never broken, but it sounds like others have had problems with service. I've had mine for several years, and so far, so good.

This product has excellent sound. I couldnt find a better set of wireless speakers. The distance you can move the speakers is awsome! I think everyone should own this product!

I was skeptical about the clarity and sound of these speakers...we have 8 speakers run from our receiver to most rooms in our one-story home. We purchased these on the suggestion of the guy who installed our home theatre system. Here's the catch: we are XM radio listeners and listen to almost nothing else (our CD's have dust on them!); these speakers work WONDERFULLY with the XM system (or Sirius, I guess if you like that company) - excellent sound and distance. We put them outside when we are working in the yard, on the deck, and in the carport to greet guests. I highly recommend these if you have a digital radio. You can't lose.
