The biggest problem for many people who really want a surround sound home theater in the living room is that the wires needed to run the speakers can be unsightly and difficult to run. You could get in the attic and run wires through walls, but for renters that option is not viable. The wires needed to run the speakers end up being the death of the surround sound dreams for many people.

Thankfully, today wires are not always needed for the rear channel speakers of a home theater system. JBL has a great gift idea for the person wanting surround sound in their home without needing wires called the JBL WEM-1 Wireless Expansion Module. The system has multiple inputs and offers a 70-foot transmission range allowing for use even in large rooms. The system is available from JBL for $358.

For Whom:

  • For movie and TV fans wanting surround sound without all the wires.

The Good:

  • No wire surround sound
  • Local inputs allow MP3 playback at the speaker

The Bad:

  • Wireless system still needs a power outlet so not all wires disappear

Where to buy:

Get your own from JBL.
