How Wireless Speakers Work


Author's Note

I wouldn't classify myself as an audiophile. I love music and I can differentiate between a great sound system and an average one. But I'm not able to tell the difference between a great sound system and a top-of-the-line system. I would consider a wireless system if it meant I could have a decent listening experience and have the freedom to place the speakers wherever I liked.
