Top Customer Reviews
1st - they operate on 900mhz (old style cordless phones) so the quality is not HD but more in between am to fm radio leaning slightly towards FM.
2nd - if the input volume to the transmitter is to loud the signal gets distorted.
3rd - if you live around lots of other people (city) then you are going to get signal interference
OK - here is my setup - I have a video will try to upload it some day (let me know if interested)
I took a 100 watt bluetooth amp that hooks up to my phone. I play pandora at 3/4 volume on my phone to the amp that is at max volume. I have separate lines running from the amp to TWO (2) separate transmitters at the far corners of my home (in the attic - also wired up a timer on the power supply to these transmitters so they shut off automatically in 6 hours) just before the transmitters i installed a reducer that takes the high output from the amp and drops it for the input on transmitters (if interested I can look up product number on amazon - just post comment)
this allows me to have speakers all around my Koi Pond and waterfall and deck and have music. I just have to run power (or use batteries - but I have the power lines anyway) and it is FREAKING AWESOME at a fraction of the cost of running speaker wire to expense outdoor speakers and then dealing with all the BS when they don't work. I have one in house, one in garage, one on deck, one on pool deck, one near pond, one near upper pond / near top of waterfall / one in kids playground area... and I can move them at will - during the winter i move them indoors to each room of the house and play Christmas music throughout the house.
The only negative or weak link is the power supply - these clearly are not weather resistant and go bad after a while. I have taken to spraying them with that flex seal to see if that will help but trying to find cheap power supply replacements at the moment.
So if you live on farm or have a bunch of land with no neighbors these are a very nice cost effective alternative to running speaker wire all over the place to fixed locations
Even though I have a nice TV, good sound system, I find that conversations on tv would cause me to want to turn up the TV 5-15 points to hear everything clearly. This was a issue I've been fighting for years regardless if it was a 2.1, 5.1, or 7.1 encoded movie or stream. I do not have a full 5.1 system but instead have a soundbar along with a a oldschool vinyl top load vacuum tube system that has a RCA in and out connection. Once a song started, I found I would constantly have to turn the volume back down after turning it up to hear people talking prior. I needed something I could have close to the couch to supplement the sound in the room so I would not keep bouncing the sound on the remote. I did not want to run wires so was looking for a wireless solution.
My first attempt was an avantree priva 2 in 1 adapter and a good aptx bluetooth speaker to hook to it. The system worked but no matter what I set, I would have a slight audio delay between my tv/soundbar and the bluetooth unit. Doing some research online, I found that the best bluetooth systems still suffer from 28-40 ms of sound delay. This is ok if you use solely the bluetooth system as your sound or a headset to the TV but a major issue when you want to add sound to a existing system.

Looking online, I realized I would have to go to older tech so decided to buy these speakers.
*- Good sound for my intended purpose. Though picture shows only 1 speaker, I received 2. Speakers sit around 30 feet from transmitter without any issues
*- Speakers came with the 3.5mm to rca cable. I tried it with a few others I have and found no loss of quality
*- No Sound Delay with existing soundbar and older system.
*- My box did not come with secondary power cables for the speakers themselves. Unsure if it was suppose too. Looking on back of the speaker system I found that the speakers have negative polarity and require a 10v 1.5 amp power to operate. Looking through amazon, I was only able to find this as a good replacement

Instead of ordering these, I decided to get 2800mah rechargeable AA batteries to see how long they will run before needing a recharge.
*-6 AA batteries needed. Currently have one speaker on cheap batteries and it has run for roughly 24 hours without shutting off. C batteries would have seemed like a better option considering this speaker is already fairly large.
*- Quality is not gonna be amazing. It gets the job done and I do not get any odd sounds, cracks, cut outs etc. I reminds me of some of the first gen bluetooth speakers that came out. I am unsure how these will fair outside in its intended design fashion. IF you are unfamiliar with this type of technology then remember that it is possible to run into signals that could interfere with the transmitting or receiving. Since this is old school frequencies, mileage will vary base on what is around you. Some people still have those old wireless phone systems in there home and you will have to fight that issue. Back of each speaker does have 3 channels to vary to frequency a bit for connection.
