Get ready to rock! The Acoustic Research AW-811 indoor/outdoor wireless speaker puts audio anywhere in or around your home. A 900MHz wireless transmitter with RCA-type audio inputs connects easily to TVs, DVD players, A/V receivers, portable audio players, computers, and more thanks to the included universal adaptors. The transmitter then sends your source audio to the speaker at distances up to 300 feet away and through walls, floors, and ceilings. No line-of-sight is required between speaker and transmitter either.

The speaker is omni-directional letting everyone around it enjoy the high-quality sound. Its water-resistant design makes it safe to use it regularly in humid environments like in the bathroom or kitchen. A 3-in-1 Power/Volume/Scan Control Knob simplifies use and adds to the unit's clean appearance. Additionally, a simple switch lets you toggle between left, mono, or right channels, should you pair it with an additional speaker for crisp stereo sound.

A non-skid top surface and a foldable handle allow you to use the speaker as a small tabletop as well. Use the AC power adapter (included) or eight C-cell batteries per speaker (not included) to power the unit.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat analog

Pros: Good signal range. Auto-tuning feature. Has everything you need to hook it up. Can charge rechargeable D batteries in the unit. Good quality sound.

Cons: Some units (I bought one from an online storefront) are touchy. If I unplug the power source, it doesn't come on right away afterwards. Also, the same unit experiences some kind of loud distortion if it is pointed in one direction.

Other Thoughts: I own two and am always contemplating a third. If you are on a budget there is no better way to get sound to remote parts of the house. As noted above, one of my units is touchy. That is probably why there are so many available in "open box" condition. One note: if using alkaline batteries, DO NOT plug into the wall w/o removing batteries. Overall, very solid value.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Speaker

Pros: Great sound and portability.

Cons: Instruction manual is misleading. Pics show connection to front jacks of a TV, which are usually input, not output jacks. Some TVs have no audio output, so check that first. I used audio output of my cable box and it works great.

1 out of 5 eggsDead in 30 seconds

Pros: Connected easily, sounded good for 30 seconds.

Cons: Stopped dead after 30 seconds. No indicator light, no sound. The speaker is dead. I have requested a replacement from the manufacturer. Let's hope the replacement lasts a bit longer.

Other Thoughts: Service rep wanted us to pay shipping cost to them. I talked to her superviser, and they are sending a pre-paid shipping label.
