The Best Wireless Computer Speakers and Wireless Speaker Systems?

Wireless Computer Speakers are a great way to add functionality and convenience to your musical enjoyment. Let’s face it… most of us have our music stored on our computer these days. sonos outdoor wireless speaker systemsAnd we would like to access those music files from anywhere in the house. I have not had to fumble around with a CD jewel case for a few years now. Usually, when I buy music the CD case just sits in the storage room as a hard disc copy if I need to reload my music library.

A Past Problem with Wireless Speaker Systems

The real issue is that most of the wireless computer speakers and wireless home theater speakers available are of very low quality.

What we need is a high quality solution that is worth sitting down to listen to. Consumers want something that will be worth their investment and to turn on and enjoy. Many of the wireless consumer products on the market are less than stellar. Initially, (a few years ago) there were concerns from the audiophile crowd that the sound quality would be less than ideal. And if you choose one of the cheap mass produced products this is exactly what you will get. This was a valid argument several years ago but I think is less of an issue and concern today. What is the reason that wireless can now work effectively? The quality of DAC’s (digital to analog converters) that are present on some of the better equipment makes this a non issue. This brings us to a solution that actually works;

Sonos came out with a new free app for the I-phone giving you the ability to control the different units in your home with your I-phone or I-touch. I think this is one of the coolest features. Again, they made this extremely easy to do and explain everything in the setup instructions.

Wireless Computer Speakers – the Sonos S5 System:

This unit is an all in one solution that makes it easy and convenient to access your computer music, Pandora, etc. And, all it needs is a power outlet to do it. Just plug it in after you have set it up and you can play music from the supplied speakers built into the wireless computer speakers unit.

If you are looking for a high fidelity wireless audio speakers system then opt for the Zone Player 3 to connect to your stereo speakers receiver or preamplifier. This is the unit to choose if you already have an amplifier to drive the speakers. And this is probably the highest fidelity wireless solution you are likely to find because you can use your existing HiFi system or home theater speakers.

If you need to drive the speakers directly (you have no amplifier or receiver) you can use the Zone Player 5. The Zone Player 5 has built in amplifiers, wireless receiver to retrieve the music, and all that is missing is the speakers.

I spent considerable time with these systems and can say that they work as described and the user interfaces are both intuitive and simple to set up.
