Features & Specifications
The Rocketfish Wireless Rear Speaker Kit uses wireless connectivity to send the audio signal from your AV receiver to the rear speakers with up to a 100-foot range. The system promises uncompressed CD-quality audio to the rear speakers and includes the transmitter, receiver, stand and two sections of speaker wire for connecting the transmitter to your AV receiver.
Connection & Use
Connecting the Rocketfish Wireless Rear Speaker Kit to my SLS Audio AV receiver was easy and straight forward. The transmitter is a small device about the size of your typical DSL modem and requires an AC outlet to operate. The kit includes the speaker wires to connect the transmitter to your receiver. The only control on the transmitter are a power button and a connect button for pairing with the receiver.
The receiver unit is larger than the transmitter at approximately twice as large. The receiver has a built in AC cord that can be wound around an internal spool to minimize the amount of extra cord you have to deal with. Controls on the receiver include a volume control for the rear speakers.
Once everything was connected up the system worked flawlessly. As soon as I pressed the connect button on the transmitter the rear speakers synced up. In my room the rear speakers are about 30 feet from the transmitter. There was no lag, popping or other issue noticeable with the sound when watching a Blu-ray movie.
I could hear no discernable difference when using the Rocketfish Wireless Rear Speaker Kit compared to when I used the rear speakers directly connected to my AV receiver. The sound is clear and the only way you know that the rear speakers aren’t connected directly to your AV receiver is because your wife isn’t complaining about the speaker wires running across the living room. The only bad thing about the technology used here is that it still requires an AC adapter. Once someone figures about a way to power this sort of system with batteries it will be perfect.
The Rocketfish Wireless Rear Speaker Kit is exactly the sort of device that can be the difference between getting a home theater in your living room and not getting one. Anyone with a significant other more apt to consider the visual appearance of a room over the audible bliss of surround sound will know how hard it can be to get speaker wires past the wife approval-o-meter. Thanks to Rocketfish Wireless Rear Speaker Kit your spouse now has one less reason to not let you get your surround sound.
