Default Sony HTAS5 Wireless?

Hi,

I bought the Sony HTAS5 5.1 Surround System because it had a wireless option, but for the life of me I can't find the additional product needed to make the 2 back speaker wireless.

Can anyone help, its driving me insane?

Thank you!

I see no mention of wireless - that is a wired surround system.

You could use this Soundcast system. But systems like this only get the sound from the front of the room to the rear wirelessly (which may be all you need) - you still have to run wires from the wireless receiver to the surround speakers themselves.

And on this subject, even if you had surround speakers with a wireless receiver built in, they would still need power. Philips is supposedly releasing a soundbar with truly wireless surround speakers but they contain rechargeable batteries and you will have to move them to plug them into the main soundbar to recharge them. I don't see how a completely wireless surround speaker is possible unless it has big throw-away batteries in it.
