KEF speakers are un-wired for sound

Why ruin a perfectly good lounge with a cable quota equivalent to Brixton Academy's, when you can have all your speakers pipe their sound wirelessly?Q

Why ruin a perfectly good lounge with a cable quota equivalent to Brixton Academy's, when you can have all your speakers pipe their sound wirelessly?Quite rightly, KEF agrees. So it's cut the cables from its KHT5000 system by installing a wireless transmitter to the sub and receivers to each of the satellites.By using high-bandwidth 2.4GHz transmission, the cones can be placed anywhere in the room without any trailing wires or interference from microwaves, Wi-Fi routers or other airwave menaces.And fret not if you've already tangled yourself up after shelling out on the wired version. KEF will flog you a set of dinky transmitters and receivers for DIY conversion.We've also been told it's plotting a universal add-on that'll turn any brand of speakers wireless. More on that, as Mungo Jerry would say, in the summertime.
