Welcome to this issue of Practical HT Guide Update.

A lot of activity is going on with respect to the present general site maintenance, but not only. During the last few weeks, we were also working on a totally new section: Wireless Home Entertainment and Wireless Home Theater.

Anything related to wireless home systems is turning out to be HOT, and wireless home entertainment is no exception. We therefore thought that it is the right time to discuss this topic at Practical Home Theater Guide.

For many, wireless home entertainment is all about a set of wireless speakers for their home theater rear surround sound channels, or a remote set of stereo speakers in the garage, kitchen, etc., connected to a home theater AV receiver.

Wireless speaker systems and wireless home theater in-a-box solutions offer a convenient alternative when in-wall wiring is not an option - thus eliminating unsightly speaker wires crossing your home theater room. Wireless speaker systems in particular, may also turn out to be a cheaper option to in-wall wiring in a multi-room audio set-up.

BUT Wireless Home Entertainment is more than just adding a set of wireless speakers in a remote room. Rather, it encompasses access to all your digital content accessible through a home network - irrespective of whether this is present on a home PC, downloadable through an internet connection, etc., with the scope of playing this same content over whatever constitute your home entertainment system. The latter can be an existing TV in the kids room, a stereo wireless speaker system in a garage, or a big screen in your dedicated home theater room.

Recent Additions:

In total, we have five new articles; details are given hereunder:
