Wifi receiver transmitter kits

Does anyone have any experience with transmitter/receiver kits – the ones that are supposed to make  powered speaker wireless (Bluetooth and Wifi) and send the audio signal from a vintage receiver to powered speakers? Like 1Mii or Ymoo and such. Is this all snake oil? 
I'm aware of Wiim and some other more pricey solutions but was wondering if there's something else worth looking into.


I have used these (both transmitter and receivers) in the past with no issues whatsoever. No snake oil here! They do what they’re supposed to do, and they do it very well without any audibly noticeable loss and with a flawless uninterrupted wireless connection.

I’ve recommended these to others that did not want to have to run wires to their rear speakers and even to an adjacent room and building and they all have been happy also.

Do stay away from Bluetooth. With Bluetooth you will lose A LOT of fidelity.

Thank you, ellajeanelle! 

Looks interesting!

One of these transmitters would probably do.

But do I need one receiver per speaker (e.g. two for stereo) in the other room? And does this require and come with a proprietary app?
I wonder if for that price I would be better off with Wiim Mini.


raphaz You only need one transmitter and one receiver for 2 speakers as long as you have long enough cables to go from the receiver to each of the speakers. One for the left channel and one for the right and you can place the receiver somewhere in the middle. 

You may need adapter plugs to go from whatever type of output your source has (XLR, RCA, 1/4") to the transmitter, as well as whatever type of connections your speakers have to connect the receiver to the speaker's inputs.  Those are cheap!

As far as apps, there is no app.  They are independent units that communicate at 2.4 GHz from the transmitter to the receiver.  Similar to wirelessly connected microphones, guitars, etc.  

I don't have an opinion on Wiim Mini.  I've never messed with those, but I can tell you that there is no substitute for full size audio components if you are concerned with fidelity.  I like all my stuff wired!

I'm aware that there's still no adequate wireless solution that can compete with wired separates in sound quality. There are limits... but since I'm hooked to some of the convenience of streaming, my aim is to get at least a decent experience, without braking the bank. 
The mains will still be wired. 

I currently lean towards adding more Wiims or an Audioengine W3 kit. Hard to decide.
