Audio over power lines? Homeplug?
posted by knave to technology (4 answers total)
I have an audio receiver in one room of my apartment, hooked up to two speakers. I have two more speakers that I'd like to put in another room. I can run speaker wire, but I can't think of a way to do it without it being unsightly. I don't own the place, so I can't make any major modifications (cutting into the walls, etc.).
I know similar questions have been asked, but none were quite like this, and the HomePlug thing seems more popular recently. Has anyone used a HomePlug product in a situation like mine? I don't care about ethernet, USB, multiple channels, or any of that crap. I just want the same sound to be produced in two rooms, and I want it to sound good. :) I'd also consider wireless products, but I'm afraid their sound quality will suck pretty bad.
Ruling out a couple things:
1. I already have a nice receiver, so I'm not interested in replacing it (although I understand the remote room will need its own amplifier).
2. I already own the four speakers I want to use, and I don't want to replace them.
Thoughts, experiences? Thanks!
