If you are a home theater fan that doesn’t have the space or inclination to run wires all the way around your room for the rear channels wireless is one of the few options if you want surround sound. Aperion Audio has unveiled a new wireless rear surround speaker system called the Zona Wireless Surround Speaker System that will get rear channels in your room sans wires.
The speaker system includes a pair of rear channel speakers that will work with any home theater receiver. The speakers have a 4.5-inch woven fiberglass woofer and are in a 2-way configuration. They measure 9.8-inches H x 6-inches W x 6.3-inches D and weigh 15 pounds. They are powered with a 2x20W Class D amp featuring DSP. Frequency response is 55Hz to 20kHz.
The wireless range for the transmitter is 150-feet so the system will work even in very large rooms. The device uses 2.4GH tech for connectivity and has a USB 2.0 interface and a remote control. The USB interface allows the system to be used for wireless music from a PC. The system sells for $499 and is available right now.
