Running wires to your surround speakers can be tough from both sides – either the wires themselves are hard to run or the speaker placement can be difficult. Aperion Audio’s new Zona Wireless Surround Speaker System ($500) brings reliable audiophile-grade surround sound to your home theater in a pair of high-quality wireless bookshelf speakers. The built-in wireless receivers and two-way power amplifiers in each speaker make Zona a simply beautiful and easy to install addition to most home theater systems.
Zona is easy to set up and operate — simply connect the transmitter to the Surround Pre-Out jacks of your AVR and plug the transmitter and speakers into a power outlet. Zona will automatically link up with a robust and high quality wireless connection. The low latency of the signal (less than 20ms), is ideal for watching the latest Dolby and DTS surround sound formats.
The Zona Wireless Surround Speaker System can also be used to play high fidelity music directly from a PC via its USB connector, or to send music throughout the house to any number of Zona speakers. The wireless technology automatically identifies and avoids other 2.4 GHz signals that could otherwise cause interference, so your music never takes a hit. Zona is a great solution for a wireless distributed sound network in your home or a small powered system for your desk or bookshelf.
