Today I'm going to check out the Rocketfish Wireless Bookshelf Speaker Kit. This is an easy-to-use kit that allows you to get music all around your home with no wires. If you want whole home audio, without having to wire your entire house the Rocketfish Wireless Speaker System Kit is a great choice. Read on for all the details.

Specifications

The Rocketfish Wireless Bookshelf Speaker Kit includes pair of wireless speakers and small wireless transmitter that will connect to anything with an audio output. The input and outputs on the wireless transmitter are standard 3.5 mm units. The system has a 150-foot wireless range and comes with audio cables and USB cable need for connectivity. It also comes with a wireless remote control. The kit sells for $129.98.

In Use

For the most part, all of my digital music is on my computer. The problem for me is my computer is upstairs in my office, and I spend most my time downstairs while not working. I also like to have music outside when I am working on a car or messing around in the yard. I don't like to take my smartphone with me outside when I'm working, because I fear it will drop out of my pocket and break. That makes the Rocketfish Wireless Bookshelf Speaker Kit perfect.

Connecting the wireless transmitter to my computer took only about 10 minutes and I was done. Once the wireless transmitter was connected to my computer, the installation of the bookshelf speakers was very quick needing only to be plugged into wall outlet. In my two-story home, the music streamed from my computer upstairs to the speakers downstairs with no issues at all. The music coming out of the speakers sounds exactly as it would if my smartphone or computer were in the same room.

I noted no skipping or stuttering or other sound quality issues during my testing despite the fact that I have a wireless network in the home. The audio quality from the remote speakers is good. You can clearly hear vocals and instruments, though I would like more bass. If you're a fan of bass heavy tracks, you may find the sound quality isn't to your liking. I think this would be the same issue with any wireless speakers similar to this Rocketfish Wireless Speaker System Kit since it has no separate subwoofer.

One speaker has a knob for volume, a button for the source, and a power button to place the speakers in the standby mode. The bass button does improve the base quality somewhat. You can also control all these functions with the included wireless remote, which will work within the same room with line of sight. This product is on the Rocketfish website and sells for right at $130.

Verdict

Pros

  • Easy setup
  • Decent audio quality

Cons

  • Expensive
 

Conclusion

The Rocketfish Wireless Bookshelf Speaker Kit works very well and is easy to set up making it a snap for people looking for a remote audio that sounds good it is easy to connect.
