Wireless speakers for use with AV receiver

I can't find an elegant solution for this, so I thought I'd ask.

I have a wired 5.1 speaker setup with a great Yamaha receiver. Because of my destructive toddler, the system cannot stay unless I can find a way to remove the wired connections to the speakers from the receiver. I don't want to get a stupid soundbar.

Any suggestions? Please don't recommend overpriced and underpowered Sonos.

    Wait about 4 years, or smack 'em every time they touch your equipment.

      The problem is the last "2 feet” from the wall/baseboard. Magnet for my stupid toddler

      Can you put them up on shelves ?

    • Ahh gotcha. In that case, I'd try and put your gear as close to the wall as possible, and do the type of conduit you can stick down with HD adhesive. Maybe tape over the back of the cabinets where the speaker wire comes up from the floor and connects

  • Wireless speakers do not work yet .. you might notice up to a full second of lag when watching movies - not worth it. Listening to music is ok.

    Wireless powered amps per speaker are difficult to find.

    I’d go with https://www.homedepot.com/p/Wiremold-Legrand-Cordmate-II-White-Cord-Cover-Kit-C210/202264878

    Ya, you need to do creative wiring. I had a similar situation and the options to turn wired good speakers into wireless are just not good and will not meet the performance expectations you will be happy with. Good speakers need power and alignment

    Look on Amazon for flat wires that you can stick to the wall and floors but you might have to improvise at each end for the connector.

    Thanks for the replies. Looks like wireless speakers on a receiver isn't a solution. I'll have to try and get some conduits going. They'll look hella ugly on tiled floor though

    Run the wires in wall or under carpet? Or get cord cover raceways/conduits
