Hi all, here's my situation: I have a very nice, but slightly older separate-component sound system wired into a function venue. The best I can describe it is a cd player, two equalizers and an amp (I think) that all the speakers plug into (4 pairs with really fat plugs).

And here is what I want to do: move all of the input stuff (CD player and volume control (I think it is on the equalizers) to the other end of the room - about 20m and add some form of connectivity for a projector/laptop.

Re-wiring the system will costs several thousand dollars and I thought there must be some way of separating the components using a wireless transmitter/receiver.

If anyone knows that this can be done please let me know, and I will post more info/images.

Thanks

I'm not sure if this will work for you but I thought it was worth passing on. They can be used as a pair; one transmitting, one receiving.

Possibley connect your exiting system with some thing like these

We use them at work, in our confrence room, to connect the audio from laptops to a pa type system.

I also have a set at home which i have used on and off to play from no corded devices

Hi and thanks for your reply. I think this would work, but it doesn't quite have enough range - 10m

This looks like the setup that would work. I'll get in touch with Stereotype and see what they think

Thanks for your help

YEaahh! re-wired the whole system myself - $100 worth of speaker wire and about 4 hours work and it goes perfect. Just need to buy a wireless audio transmitter/receiver set and I'm done.

Thanks all for your helpful posts.
