As long as your Blu-ray Player has line level outputs (RCA Jack) this will work fine.

Question

Boston Acoustics compatable with Rocketfish?

I have a 10 year old 5.1 Boston Acoustic DT7000 home theatre. The rear speakers work fine when wired, but do not work when using wireless with the RF-RBKIT? Is it possible that Boston Acoustics rear speakers are not compatable with Rocketfish?

Question

PC compatible?

Will the Rockfish Wireless HD Audio Starter Kit work with a computer? In other words if the music source is a PC, and we want to wirelessly stream that music to speakers in another room, can the starter kit facilitate this?

I have 2 of these systems and one is hooked up to my Laptop's docking station. I used a simple 3.5 mm male to male cable and it worked fine. Eventually, I went with a Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi USB sound card so I could use a remote volume control to mute it when someone called on the phone (I like my tunes loud sometimes!)

It looks to me like you could use a 3.5mm male-to-male cable to connect your computer's line-out or headphone jack to the sender, then a receiver could be hooked up to speakers in another room. I don't know why someone would say you couldn't do this. I don't have one, but if someone does, feel free to add your first-hand knowledge.

Unfortunately no. The wireless transmitter connecting via speakerwire to either a stereo or surround receiver/amplifier. However they do make whats called the "Rocketfish Wireless Transmitter & Receiver" Model Number: RF-RBUSB. This allows you to take any pair of computer speakers that would normally connnect to a PC/Mac via a 3.5mm headphone (auxillary) connection and make them wireless. Price: $49.99 on bestbuy.com with free shipping to home.

answer 2
interesting question. i am very safisfied with the power sent to
my surround sound speakers, but cannot comment on how
this would work on the main speakers.

if you really want to go wireless on your main speakers might i
suggest you try the rocketfish in your home. if you do not like it
then return it.. ask the salesperson about the return policy
before you buy.

No. If you're using a seperate powered stereo or surround receiver/amplifier and a seperate wireless transmitter and receiver they will not interfere with one another. You may notice a bit of a connecting problem with the two systems at once. Possibly consider doing a pre-amplifier off of your existing Amplifier and then add the wireless receiver to that so the entire system can be integrated?

I own a high end Onkyo TX-NR5009 Receiver with the Onkyo PA-MC5500 high powered amp hooked up to Klipsch RS-62's, etc....will I get better sound quality or delays because of the wattage used to power the speakers?

Check the volume level of the wireless speaker or audio sources connected to the sender.

Make sure that all of the audio cables are connected correctly.

Make sure that the power indicators of the Rocketboost sender and receiver devices are lit solidly. If the indicators are blinking, see “Establishing communication” on page 25 of the manual (http://www.rocketfishproducts.com/p...).

Make sure the audio source connected to your sender is On.

Make sure the sender or receiver devices are not Muted. The Rx indicator light blinks when the device is muted.
