    Does anyone know how good wireless 5.1 set-ups are. By how good I mean sound wise. The SpeedLink Xanthos speakers are wireless and communicate with the subwoofer via radio frequency technology.

    Is the sound any good does anyone know or are wired surround sound set-ups much better?

    I would like to know more about these too!
    How do they compare to say the Creative I-Trigue 5.1 5600 Speakers?
    Any website reviews or info?

    I didn't realise there was wireless 5.1s available now.

    I would say they're like any other wireless audio equipment. You will be sacrificing crisper and bassier sound quality for wireless, due to lack of power and batteries.

    I would imagine interference could be a problem too.

    I've tried various wireless headphones and I found the sound quality muggy and lacking. I can't see a 5.1 system being much different.

    I will check some reviews later as I could be wrong ;)
