Performance

The speakers and their cables and AC adapters were well packed and clearly labelled so I knew exactly which adapter went with which part. There are 3 main components to the system. The transmitter, and 2 speakers. Each requires an AC adapter (included). The speakers can optionally run off of batteries (I haven't tried this though). I installed these in a bedroom - which already had a 2.4Ghz telephone, and TIVO connected to an 802.11b WiFi adapter. There was no conflict between all 3 products. However, when the house is very quiet, we can hear a very slight humming-sound coming from the speakers. Sound quality is excellent. My only two complaints -- the slight humming sound, and I wish the speakers could turn themselves off automatically. Each speaker must be turned on in order to receive the audio signal. Once on - they have blue light which remains lit. In the dark, the blue light becomes annoying - and in order to turn each speaker-off you must hold the on/off button for about 2 seconds. It should have included a feature to turn themselves off automatically after a specified number of numbers if no audio signal is received.

These speakers are perfect for an add-on to your existing system. I've had no problem obtaining a signal when placing them anywhere in our house. Currently the speakers are on the main floor and the stereo with transmitter is in the basement. Sound quality is acceptable for my needs, perhaps not for those who are audio purists. Much better than running wires and you can move them wherever you want to!
