It can be a real pain when it comes to routing speaker cables, especially those surround boomboxes mounted on the far corners of your media room. You can either draw up an elaborate plan involving trunking and false ceilings, or check out Crystal Audio's latest wireless audio transmission systems on the U.K. market: the TR-100 and TR-60.

For 399 pounds (about $787), the TR-100 provides two sets of independent transmitters and receivers to power a stereo. Each has a provision for 100-watt audio amplification and a peak effective range of 25 meters, according to AV Review. Those who prefer lesser clutter could opt for the TR-60 at 249 pounds (about $491) instead. This shares "juice" for two loudspeakers from a single receiver at the expense of power headroom.

But like any existing wireless audio kit in the market, they are hardly genuine "cable-free" solutions as far as we're concerned. Not until we've miniature nuclear reactors or super fuel cell batteries that can support their integrated amplifiers.
