  • Audio Amp/speakers question

    My turntable/speakers/amp is set up in my living room. Our kitchen is next to our living room. When I'm in the kitchen I just have to cranck it up a little too loud to be able to hear it when I'm in the kitchen. I don't want to (and can't in an esthetic fashion) put speaker cable through my living room, but I want some speakers in my kitchen.

    I've been looking into a wireless set up for above problem, and came across the Kef Wireless system

    http://www.kef.com/html/us/innovatio...ess/index.html

    I have a Marantz 1060 amp, and obviously there are two speakers attached to it for the living room. Here's a pic of the back of the amp:

    I've read that these speakers are mostly used for surround systems.

    Now, my question is, will I be able to connect this Kef Wireless system to my Marantz Amp to two speakers in my kitchen, so that, my two speakers in my living room are still connected.

    I'm in the possibility to buy this second hand, but, want to be sure that I will be able to use it to my purpose. I suppose somebody here is hifi savvy enough (cause I'm not) to give a reasonable answer.

    Thanks

    Just use the Tape Out sockets (top right of pic) to feed the sender. Being line outs, they're fixed level so you'd have to adjust the volume on the remote speaker. I imagien that's possible - download the manual and check, though

      Won't there be a delay in wireless speakers as opposed to cabled ones? Which might mean they are out of sync if they are both connected?

        What about some wireless headphones on your head instead of speakers in the kitchen? Just a thought.

          So I won't be able to listen/talk to my wife when we're in the kitchen?

          Sounds like an excellent idea

          But I'm afraid the missus won't be too happy about it. (and she likes music too).

          As a matter of fact, it's for her I'm looking into putting an extra set of speakers. I don't mind if it's too loud ...

          Regarding the wiring.

          It's not kinch, so I don't think it's made for tape out.

          It's got four wires. So one piece of the device has to go where normally you attach your speakers. The other 2 pieces of the device you attach to the speakers in the room where you want the speakers. That's why I said it's used for surround. When you have a surround amp there are enough slots to attach your speakers.

          That Kef wireless should be the best wireless system there is. So shouldn't have any delay/distortion/drop outs (obviously I'll have to test that first to confirm )

          Won't I be able to attach the wireless system to the 'remote' slot (under the 'main' slot)?

          Coming to think of it. If I attach speakers to that remote slot I will be able to test that for myself
