    Does the job but needs more power

    |
    Posted .

    I'll start by saying that I read almost every review available for this unit before purchasing and what I decided is that I need to buy it for myself to really make my own conclusions. (remember that you can always return it if you don't like it) My system consists of the following.... (Fronts) Klipsch RP-280fa (Center) Klipsch RP-450ca (Rears) MartinLogan Motion 4's (Receiver) Marantz SR-6011 I have to admit that I wasn't expecting much from this wireless kit as it's only putting out 30 Watts into 4ohms which is nothing to get excited about but since this unit is meant for the rear speakers, it is acceptable in a small to medium sized room (mine is 16x13). After all the cabIes were hooked up, I made sure the wireless receiver and wireless sender were within viewing distance of each other and setting the volume on the rear wireless receiver at Max. Then I ran the Audyssey EQ calibration on my receiver and was surprised to see that it worked perfectly. You don't need to have a calibrator on your receiver for this unit to work as it is a plug and play system. Once the calibration was complete, I used Mad Max: Fury Road (dolby atmos) to demo the setup. I wish I could say it was amazing but my rears lacked the low end that can be provided by a more powerful amp but the highs were present and were allowed to shine. Now given the size of my room, I am not even using a subwoofer as my towers have dual 8" woofers so the bass is more than enough to make up for what I may be lacking in the rear. Some important things to note.... 1. Follow the directions exactly as they are explained in the instruction manual. 2. Understand that if you do not have a dual band wireless router then you may experience interruption and delays in either your speakers or your wireless speeds to your devices ie. smart phone, tablets, media players etc. I have all my devices connected to 5ghz and let this unit take over the 2.4ghz so that I am assured no issues. As long as you are not expecting audiophile performance, I can happily recommend this system to anyone that is looking to go wireless. I'll say it again.....you can read all the reviews there are but you won't really know until try it yourself.

    Great for not running wires, poor for audiophiles.

    Posted .

    This product looked just right to solve my problem. I bought a great TV (Samsung 55" Series 8) and the matching Samsung HW-C700 A/V 3D receiver to match back in March. Along with a great picture, I am a musician and audiophile. I have a very good ear for music and the quality thereof. So after making my initial purchase which also included front towers, center channel, and subwoofer (all Polk Audio), I wanted to complete my surround sound by adding two rear speakers. I got a great deal on a couple Polk bookshelf speakers on a Black Friday sale, but I didn't want to run wires from my A/V to the back since I have vaulted ceilings and hiding the wires would be a lot of work for me. There's my situation and this product look like a great solution for me in my room. Setting up the wireless system (installing the wires [which I used monster 16gauge wire] and hiding them) took me about 30 minutes and calibrating it with my A/V receiver was really easy. I had previously worried a lot about the signal latency (15-20ms published, which is right on the money) which I had feared would create an echo. It may for you, if you don't have an A/V receiver that can automatically or manually set signal delay or sync for your individual speakers. I was about to get it all synced up and made the entire setup and calibration under 45 minutes. After listening for a while to various forms of media, I could hear something wasn't right to my ears. I listened to lots of high quality music and blu-ray high def audio and in these trials something just didn't sound right to me. My troubleshooting approach was to A and B the speakers with one connected directly to the A/V receiver and one connected to the wireless rocket fish. A few minutes of listening I could tell what the problem was and I later confirmed it in the specs. The Rocketfish Wireless Rear Speaker Kit's manual stats that it transmits and receives Stereo, 16-bit, 48Khz uncompressed audio with a bit-rate of 1.465 Mbps. The Signal to Noise Ratio is 87dBs and output power is 2 x 25W RMS (in 4 ohms). Okay? So, the transmitter has to down-sample my 96Khz PCM high-def audio that my A/V receiver is sending. That is one of the differences in quality. Another is the RMS, my receiver can give 120 Watts RMS per channel (at 6 ohms). Also, It's no wonder that there is a slight hiss produced due to the signal to noise ratio. It is most recognizable when the Rocketfish receiver's volume control is cranked. For me, the Rocketfish solves the problem of hiding wires across a room at a cost of quality and hiss (the hiss isn't terrible and may not be noticeable in your environment. It can also be controlled with some trail and error, but you'll sacrifice volume and headroom). Of course, I'm comparing this to my A/V receiver which is awesome in comparison and rightfully so! The differences make the quality of sound noticeable to me, but not my non-audiophile wife. So. Audiophiles beware, but if you aren't an audiophile that can pick out slight discrepancies in the signal, this product is really great. I am halfway tempted to keep it because I'm dreading the day's job (and money spent) of running the wires to the back of my home theater. But, for me, high quality audio is an ever elusive beast that I hope to one day capture.

    Great sound easy to setup!

    I have wanted to add surround sound speakers in my den for a while but put it off due to the time and money it would have required. I saw this wireless speaker option and checked the reviews. They were positive so I decided to give it a try. VERY glad I did. The setup was quick and easy and all of the necessary wires are included. It is as simple as connecting the speaker jacks, on your receiver, to the transmitter. Then locating where you want the speakers to be. Connect your wires to the Amplifier/Receiver and plug it in the wall. Then just adjust the settings for volume on your receiver and the Rockfish amp. Total time for me to set up was about 30 minutes, which included mounting the receiver, speakers and running wire.

    Sounds Great BUT can interfere with WiFi

    Posted .

    Let me start by saying it works as advertised. It is easy to setup, install, and sounds great. We have it spanning 50 or so feet to power rear speaks in our kitchen leading to an open plan living room. What I don't like!!! I spent three days and then purchased a 2.4GHz spectrum analyzer to discover my WiFi interference was due to this speaker system. The trace shows a strong RF signal and when I switch off the transmitter it all goes quiet. Plus the speaker system shifts frequencies randomly, presumably to avoid interference, so don't be fooled into thinking your WiFi is fine after install. I noted two traces, presumably for left and right channels, at WiFi 4.5/12 and then it shifted to 6/14. Good luck :-)

    Life Hack!

    Posted .

    Let me tell you about this system.. I wanted to be outside and still hear what's on the TV. I didn't want to run wires all through the frickin' house, I mean after all I'm a dude trying to listen to my TV outside, I'm lazy if you haven't picked that up yet.. But anyways, I plugged this into my Samsung Blu-Ray Surround Sound System (another great buy from Best Buy!!), but anyways I connect one device to the sound system and another one to my speakers I put outside. After syncing the devices I get sound outside from my TV rooms away! The distance is remarkable and I'm very happy. I get that what I'm using these for are not what it's made for, but my two cents is if you want your sound in multiple rooms, this is a very cost effective way to make that happen!

    Solved my problem

    Posted .

    My usage for this item is probably not exactly what the mfg intended. I had a set of outdoor speakers sitting in a closet long before I had an outdoor patio to use them. Now that I have a patio, I need to get music pumping through these speakers. Enter Rocketfish. The distance between my stereo receiver and the outdoor speakers is only about 30' at the most, and I was only going through one wall. But I wanted to find a wireless device because I did not want to run speaker wire directly through walls/ceiling/etc. I was able to find a 10"x7" electrical enclosure online, which I've mounted to the outside of the house, and the Rocketfish receiver is mounted into that - making the device summer-time weather-proof (I carved-out some openings for access to the speaker inputs/buttons/volume, so I will probably need to bring it in during the winter). But I've got to say that this Rocketfish device is really handling this set-up very well. The sound does cut out for about 3 seconds on occasion - random interference with the wireless signal, which I cannot forcibly reproduce. It happens maybe once during an afternoon or evening sitting on the patio. I know that you can just buy a set of wireless-ready speakers, but if you've got existing speakers and don't want to drill holes and run wire, this is a workable solution. BTW, my complaint stems from the fact that I've got the AC power of the wireless router plugged into one of the ports on my Onkyo receiver. Whenever I turn on the receiver, the router turns on and starts looking for a connection. So I've got to turn off the router if I'm just listening to music indoors. Or I could find another wall outlet for the router, but I'm done working for today....

    Great Product

    Posted .

    So I was actually going to the store to just buy some new wire and I saw this and was ecstatic! My wife didn't want wiring to be exposed all over the place from the rear speakers to the receiver and this was the perfect solution. At first I didn't have any sound to the rear speakers when I was testing it but I just had to change my receiver to the All Surround setting just to send a signal to all speaker outputs to verify that the device was working properly. Once I got the unit and the new Monster Platinum XP wire installed I was in heaven and the sound was crisp and pure. As you can see in my photos I don't have any wire moulding yet but the wires will be covered soon. I'm not sure if it matters whether the wireless receiver is up high or down low, the manual didn't specify a requirement, but at the height I have mine installed (approx. 5 feet) I've had no interference or sound issue. The sound is spot on, no delays, and works great! I love this purchase.

    Great product, works perfectly with our new setup with no speaker wire running from the back of the room to the front where our receiver is located. Did not degrade the sound at all that the human ear can notice. I recommend this for anyone looking to convert wired speakers to a wireless setup.

    Great idea, poor instructions and quality

    Posted .

    Purchased in store 6 months ago. Returned 1st one b/c it didn't work. After the 2nd one didn't work I finally realized it was because I had the sender and receiver switched. It made sense to me for the smaller unit (The sender) to be at the rear speakers instead of the larger unit (the Receiver) to be at the stereo receiver. Wrong. The LARGE receiver unit for this is suppose to be at the rear speakers. This is more than likely why so many people couldn't get it to work. THEN after 6 months, I stopped getting sound from my rear speakers. Connection LED was blinking indicating no connection. I tried to re-pair the (pre-paired) units using the connection buttons however then the Receiver would not power up at all. Taking back to BB, again.

    Long story short...I was looking to set up my 7.1 surround system in the living room in my new house, but had no options to run any number of rear surround speakers. I bought 2 of these kits, one kit for the surround left and right channels, and another kit for the surround back left and right channels. After taking the kit(s) out of the box(es), I noticed that they had sort of a cheap feeling to them, as in they just feel lightweight and almost just like a plastic shell, BUT...don't let that deter you. Here's why... I connected one unit to the side surround speakers, and the other unit to the back surround speakers. NOTE: It does not have to be done that way, you could connect one unit to both left surround speakers and the other unit to the right side. All that matters is that you pay attention to which speaker you connect to each side of each unit. NOTE: In my opinion, it makes more sense to connect the sides to one unit, and both surround back speakers to the other unit. This is because the receiving units have a volume control (which was a nice surprise). I would rather be able to control the volume for each matching set of speakers, than control the volume for each side instead. In any case, after getting everything hooked up, I turned on one sender, and then one receiver and it connected almost immediately. Same thing for the other unit. I was initially concerned that the units may try to connect to one another, but they are paired at the factory, and even after trying to see if one sender would connect to the opposite receiver...I confirmed that they would not connect to the incorrect unit. I powered everything up and put in a Blu Ray, adjusted some of the speaker levels on my home theater receiver, and the volume on both of the units, and I couldn't be happier with the results. I was expecting perhaps some slight, but noticeable delay, and after watching some scenes from Avatar and Terminator 2, I am completely satisfied with the results! The term "wireless" seems to confuse some people and I'd like to clear this up to help out. There is no such thing as a completely wireless system. Speakers need power to function. You WILL have to run wires from the receiving unit to the speakers and you WILL have to be able to connect power to the receiving unit(s). NO, you cannot use 1 sender with 2 receiving units. This is a great solution if you don't want to run wires around the perimeter of a room, in front of a fireplace, etc. If you're trying to mount speakers to the ceiling, this is probably not going to help. In my case, I originally had wires running around the perimeter of my living room in my apartment to all my surround speakers. Now, at my house, I cannot do that, because they would be in front of a fireplace. So, I still have 7.1 surround sound now, without wires in front of a fireplace, and all you see is about 2 feet of an extension cord running underneath my sofa. I hope my review helps you make a decision and clears up any questions you might have!

    Does a great job for the price

    |
    Posted .

    Connections were well marked and directions for installation and use were quite clear. I take issue with a previous reviewer who was confused by big box/little box-meaning that the person thought intuitively that the big box (transmitter) should be next to the stereo receiver. No sir. The small box is a transmitter only while the big box that is placed on the speaker side is both a receiver and an amplifier. That's an inherent weakness of a system like this. Your surround speakers are driven by the small Rocketfish amplifier rather than the better quality stereo amplifier. Sound quality on the surrounds can't possibly be audiophile level due to degradation by Bluetooth and an inexpensive amplifier. However, it does a great job for the price.

    Very easy setup, sounds pretty good

    |
    Posted .

    Very neat little gadget that saved me from running wires for surround sound speakers. In my setup, running wires was not an option so this was a terrific solution. It sounds very clear,but a little weak due to the limited output of the receiver amplifier. I'm not sure it would output a strong enough sound if one wanted to bring sound to the back yard porch for example. Unfortunately this operates on a 2.4 ghz band, so may cause interference with other things like routers, network cameras, neighbor's stuff, etc. In my case, I didn't notice any interference however.

    Pleasantly Suprised

    |
    Posted .

    I was pretty skeptical when I purchased this kit because I had read a lot of the reviews about them not working right. We just replaced the carpet in our family room with hardwood in a concrete slab home so i had to find another way to get the rear speakers in my surround system hooked up without looking trashy. I done a lot of research on different devices to do it and ended up deciding to try this setup mainly due to price and Best Buys great return policy. Worst case scenario, if they sounded bad or I got interference like some other reviewers stated, I would go the hard route and run the wires up in the attic and back down because sound quality is definitely important to me. After getting them hooked up (which was very straightforward and simple) I was really surprised with how they sound. I can't tell a difference when watching a 4k blu ray or playing video games. They have really blown me away with how well they sound. As far as Wi-Fi interference, i haven't seen any. The transmitter part of this is within a foot of my Tri-ban router and I have over 40 WI-FI/Smart devices in my home. In conclusion, it works great for me and definitely worth trying in your house before going to too much effort running wires for your surround speakers.

    Works well and easy to set up

    Posted .

    This works great with the setup in my family room. I have had no connection issues between the transmitter and receiver. I love that it is a universal design so it will work with any receiver/speaker combination. The sound quality is good for surround sound effects, but if you listen to music in 5 or 7 channel stereo, you can hear the degraded quality of sound. Not a big deal for me, but may be to you. I have not noticed any delay in sounds from movies or TV, but I made sure to re-run the audio setup in my receiver, so it could re-calibrate to the wireless setup. I was able to hide the receiver unit behind my couch, but it is kind of big so it will work best if you can hide it behind or under some furniture. Overall nice product at a good price!

    Great system for reducing wires

    Posted .

    I just installed my second wireless rear speaker system and felt that I should finally review this system. The first system that I set up, I used for my rear surround speakers and I have had a no-hassel experience for a little more than two years now. It was a breeze to set up; hook the sending unit to the rear of your A/V receiver's surround speaker L/R out via the supplied speaker wires, connect the receiving unit to your rear speakers (these speaker wires are not included#, plug both units into the wall, turn them on, hold the connect button on the receiving unit until the lights go solid and you're ready to roll. Now this system does not make your rear speakers completely wireless as you do have to have some wire going from the receiving unit to the speakers, but this should be a pretty small distance...definitely less than running from A/V receiver to rear of the room. I have had no issues with signal being interupted (my set up has the two units about 25 feet apart and the receiving unit is in a cabinet, out of "view" from the sending unit). I have had no issues with the sound quality. The second system I just hooked up yesterday works just as well...I am using that from my receiver's Zone 2 speaker out to some outdoor speakers on my patio. In this set up, the receiving unit is about 35 feet from the sending unit but it is through a wall outside and the only issue that I have noticed is that the initial "connection" (synching) took a little longer but I have not noticed any lack of power or signal loss so far. I was worried that having two of the same systems plugged into the same A/V receiver going to two different sets of speakers might not work (would the signals from each sending unit be distinct enough to work independently from each other?), but it absolutely works perfect. Before I bought this, I did contact Rocketfish directly to ask this question and the guy there said that it work; this little customer service nugget definitely also helped me decide to write this (lengthy) review. All in all, this is a great system for reducing rear speaker wires. Again, in my two set-ups, I can only speak to quality of signal up to 35' (not near the 100' as advertised, which is why I only rated the "range" as "good"), but I think that this works great. I could have easily given this 5 stars, but the $100+ price tag I think is a little too high (maybe I'm just cheap), though I have not seen many comprable systems at this price point...maybe I should've given this 5 stars. Enjoy!

    Great bang for the buck!

    For a wireless system, I was very impressed. The sound quality is very good and there is very little lag at all. Virtually unnoticeable. That being said, at anything over 50% volume on the receiver box, there is a very obvious white noise coming from the rear speakers. You probably won't hear it if you're watching a movie though. To fix the above issue, simply increase the volume of your main audio receiver on the rear channels and then turn DOWN the Rocketfish receiver until you've balanced out the sound. This will *almost* eliminate all of the white noise. I'm also having a slight problem with speaker cut outs when the Rocketfish receiver is not in line of sight (most likely due to interference). I would still recommend this device for the price!

    I have a high end Def Tech home theater system with Yamaha AVR and I needed a way to setup my rear speakers wirelessly. I did try to avoid this product because of all the mixed reviews, but honestly, I’m glad I purchased this. For the everyday person/family, this product will be just fine for everyday tv watching or those living room family movie nights. I haven’t had any audio dropouts, distortion, etc. I would recommend this product, but try to get it on sale when it’s half off the original price, which happens often.

    Avoids front to rear wires but not the rest

    |
    Posted .

    These are now working well. Initially, I bought one kit thinking it would work for me. Unfortunately, it turned out that it did not and I had to purchase two kits, one for each rear speaker. The relatively large black receivers are a bit obtrusive on our light-colored walls with our white speakers. Although these units do eliminate the front to rear speaker wires, each one has an obtrusive black power cable running from a power outlet to the receiver as well as the white (in our case) speaker wire from each receiver to its corresponding speaker. In summary, the system was difficult to set up (which was done by the Geek squad) and difficult to integrate into our room décor but now provides good sound.

    Effective way to connect satellite speakers

    |
    Posted .

    With proliferating means of connecting remote speakers (and proliferating speakers that come with wireless connections), this item may be a bit retro, but it was perfect for adapting an existing pair of quality speakers for duty as satellites on the back side of the living room, without hiding speaker wire. The transmitter was placed atop a tall cabinet, the receiver atop one of the speakers. Nice and simple. The two outgoing speaker wires go from receiver to transmitter, and the the receiver has matching outputs. The system only provides for two different speakers (and can presumably power only two. Output is given as "5 volts"). A subwoofer could be connected, but for most users, better wireless connectors are available using RCA cables. My system uses such a transmitter for a remote subwoofer; its transmitter was placed 8 feet from the Rocketfish transmitter, and they do not interfere with each other. Sound quality for the speakers seems excellent.
