How to Improve the Wireless Reception of Wireless Surround Sound Systems

If you are having problems when running wireless speakers or if you have a wireless speaker kit in your home and the sound is popping out every once in a while then there are some methods you can use to optimize wireless performance. I’m going to highlight some of these basic methods which hopefully will help you resolve the problems that you are facing.

Obviously, wireless systems by nature are not as reliable as hard-wired systems. That is even more true with audio products because audio transmission has very strict quality requirements when it comes to latency is well as lost data packets. As you can imagine, audio is a continuous stream such as video and any segments which are missing can lead to disastrous results. When using a wireless surround sound speaker system you will by definition every once in a while half data packets which are lost due to wireless interference from other signals. They are some basic methods for improving wireless performance.

Some Techniques for Assessing Audio Amplifier Performance

Audio amplifiers are the core element in every set up. Some products already integrated amplifiers. For example, active speakers do not require a dedicated amplifier because the speakers themselves connect directly to a low-level audio output. However, most people use passive speakers which are regular speakers that do not have any sort of amplifier built in.

However, this peak wattage does not represent the performance of the amplifier very much. In fact, it is quite misleading and often times much higher than the actual wattage that the amplifier can deliver …
