I'm hearing impaired and even with my hearing aid I must turn the tv up too loud. I'm looking for some suggestions on a wireless speaker system I can hook up to my sony 46" flat screen, it is 1 year old and has all the hdmi , rca, and other hook ups.
Without knowing the exact model television, I'm taking a shot in the dark here.
In most cases, newer flat panel televisions only have digital audio outputs on them. While this is beneficial in many ways, most stereo receivers haven't caught up to this change. In the event your television only has a digital audio output, then you'll need to choose the Onkyo TX-8050. This stereo receiver has an optical input, as well as many modern connections (USB and AUX input, as well as Internet connectivity). While those later features may not be appealing to you, it's the optical input that sets this receiver apart from many other stereo receivers.
Another route, if you already have a receiver is to purchase an digital (optical) to analog converter like the Audioengine D1. This simple converter will take the optical output from your television, and convert it to an analog output, which can be used with a receiver or pair of wireless headphones.
As for wireless speakers, certain models do exist, however they aren't truly wireless. Technology has evolved, however there isn't a simple way to transfer power wirelessly across a room. There are wireless audio transmitters, which can send signal across a room, but the speakers in the back of the room will still need power, which will come from (you guessed it) a wire. One example of this is the Audioengine A5 speakers coupled with the Audioengine W1 adapter. While yes, this could be considered a wireless setup, the speakers will need to be powered from a wall AC outlet, then connected to one another. You may find it easier to go the route of the Onkyo receiver mentioned above with a pair of bookshelf speakers.
I hope this helps. Does anyone else have any recommendations?
The exact model of the Sony flat screen would help, but first - are you looking for a wireless speaker system, or are you looking for wireless headphones?
