Suggestions for wireless transmitter/receiver brands....
« on: September 10, 2007, 02:59:15 pm »

As pulling wires through the house at the particular install I am involved with seems to be more headache, expense for the customer and hassle to get done I have suggested a wireless system in which I can simpy put a small amplifier in the room right behind the wall where the speakers will be mounted.  
  I need a wireless system that will be good quality and make it through the house without getting a crappy signal.  I stumbled on a company called leapfrog who makes a combo system for under $150.  Being from the pro audio world, a price tag of $150 makes me think that this thing will be lucky enough to broadcast a clearl signal to the next room, let alone the other side of the house, up one floor, and through 6 rooms (despite the specs).
 That one is here : http://www.smarthome.com/7656l.html

 Then, I have located another unit which appears to be robust in build quality and options for antennas.  It costs about $400 and is from "appliedwireless".  That one is here :

My question is this.....Has anyone used either of these two or know about them AND does anyone have any suggestions for wireless systems that are from a company that is well trusted and/or industry stantard, long history, etc...?

I'm so used to commercial A/V and concert equipment and I have not researched consumer/prosumer home theatre items.  I don't want to suggest anything to this client that is overkill but I don't want to get something cheap that ends up with crappy quality.

Lastly, as for a receiver or amplifier on the remote end to power the speakers, any suggestions of a manufacturer that makes low priced small profile units that many use in home theatre installs.  I need about 200 watts per channel at 8 ohms.  

thanks a billion,
