There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
For kicks, I connected the new speakers directly to the computer and then separately via the wireless transmitter/receiver to test the sound quailty, and really couldn't tell any noticeable difference using the wireless setup.
Also noted in at least one other review that someone stated that this USB transmitter couldn't be used concurrently with your existing sound card/speakers. Its a little tricky to setup, but there is a way, at least in Win7. If you are interested in doing so, Google "Windows 7 Stereo Mix". There may be other methods as well, but using this method, I'm able to run my computer speakers inside the house at the same time as this new wireless setup out in the garage.
