HDTV and Home Theater Podcast - Podcast #674: Dayton Audio XRA25 Wireless Rear Channel Amplifier

By The HT Guys • Feb 13 2015, 8:57am

Since the beginning of this podcast we have been on the lookout for a product that will wirelessly transmit audio from your receiver to the surround speakers. To date there have been a few that sort of got the job done. To be fair, a lot depends on where your live. In areas that do not have a lot of interference you have a much better chance of success with most products. In areas where home are right on top of each other, or have a lot of wireless devices you may be better off running cable.

By The HT Guys • Feb 7 2014, 7:37am

You've probably heard us stress over and over again how important surround sound is to your HDTV and home theater experience. Without surround sound, it's really just surveillance, not home theater.
