Is there any way to convert my old speakers into wireless? Answered

I have some great speakers I inherited from my dad. We recently moved houses, but the new configuration of the house would make it very hard to hide the cords (I HATE cords) I was hoping that there was some sort of transmitter/receiver I could hook up to the receiver to still use them. I don't have the cash to buy more. On the same note, our computer at our new house is now upstairs. We used to have it hooked up to the receiver so we could listen to our MP3s on surround sound. Without having to actually run lines through the walls, is there any way to wirelessly transmit from my computer to the receiver? I run on a Mac. TIA!

Tricky. You can think of things like connecting line-out to an FM transmitter, then plugging the speakers into a regular radio/amp unit. Or more elaborate than that plug the speakers into another PC connected via standard wireless networking.

Have a look at running data through your mains wiring perhaps?
