When you can't or don't want to put wired surround speakers up, this is a sweet alternative.

Update: 5/16/2016 - Realized I've had this for almost 2 years. Still going strong. Occasional pops but pretty much used to them.
I didn't really want to run wires to surround speakers. I've had a full 7.1 surround system in my previous house, but I was younger when I put it in and it was no problem running the wires thru the attack. But one thing I noticed, having surround at home was not as big a deal as I thought it was be. I mean, it was great, but it didn't make a moving any better just because there was surround. My new house has cathedral ceilings and I just didn't feel like crawling around in the attack running wires. And I had nowhere to run them in the living room. So for awhile I didn't have surround until I found a review for this Polk Wireless Surround. I have other polk speakers, so I trusted the brand, so gave it a try. Really sounds good. It does the left, right, and center channel surround. I'll agree with other reviewers, it's not as dedicated speakers, but it does a decent job. I do get the occasional pop that some other mentioned. It's not too bad, and its no more startling than when my dog starts barking at something. The pops are usually when there is no sound to the speaker for awhile then it starts. Depends a lot on the type of programming.
I have it placed on the floor behind my sofa.
