I use it differently but it still works well for me.,
This review is from: Rocketfish Universal Wireless Rear Speaker Kit RF-WHTIB (Electronics)I purchased this kit with the intent to use it not in a surround sound system but to pipe music to two speakers in another room, so that I can play music in multiple rooms. I set it up so that the Rocketfish sender is connected to my Audio-Video receiver unit's output for front stereo speakers (while the front stereo speakers are also connected to the same output). The Rocketfish receiver was setup in the other room and I hooked it up to two other speakers. And it works great! I can play music through my audio-video receiver and listen to it while I'm in either room.
My audio-video receiver can also be used to play surround sound but like I said I'm not using the Rocketfish kit for playing surround sound in the same room, but to play stereo sound in different rooms. I don't doubt that if I wanted to set this up for surround sound, it will work just as well - in which case the audio source will then have to be playing in surround sound mode (just like another reviewer here mentioned).

Wait. I want to do the same thing you did, I think. I want to set up 2 speakers in a separate room. But my stereo receiver is 5.1, and I already have a subwoofer, center channel speaker, 2 front speakers and 2 surround speakers set up in the TV room. How would I connect the Rocketfish kit to my stereo receiver? (Doesn't it need a separate output on the receiver? Or can you stick two sets of speaker wire into one output?)

Your reciever would need to support multiple zones, a feature which costs an extra $100 or more extra. There may be other ways, but this is the most straight forward way.

You need to get a speaker selector for this to work.
