The days of having to be close to a music source to hear music has become a thing of the past, plus no one has to max out the volume of a portable radio, CD player, or computer system to hear their favorite music in every room of the house. The presence of a quality wireless speaker system allows for great audio to be pumped from source to speaker without any wires at all and many times with just the presence of an outlet. For this reason, anyone wanting to a wire free experience should double check their purchase includes batteries to eliminate having to plug the speakers into a wall outlet (the speakers need to draw power from somewhere). Here is a look the five of the best wireless speaker systems available:
Acoustic Research Portable Wireless Speaker
From Costco or Costco.com, the Acoustic Research Portable Wireless Speaker retails for $89.99. This speaker boasts a cool lantern like design and boasts top of the line reception up to 150 feet. That distance is very impressive, as it tends to cover the bulk of the house and yard, but the push button auto lock tuning means no fumbling with a tuning dial to keep reception at its’ best. The lantern design accommodates either hanging on hook or being set down, plus the unit accepts batteries to maximize the wireless experience.
iLive Wireless Speakers With iPod Dock
Anyone looking for a way to wireless port their iPod sound to some speakers can do well with the iLive Wireless Speakers with iPod Dock from Target or Target.com for $94.99. The dock or transmitter unit comes equipped with LCD display which even includes a clock. The paired speakers offer the ability to get some top notch sound in a variety of different applications. The downside is the speakers are big on the large side to fit anywhere, so these are best for folks with a lot of room to place the speakers.
