Summary: The volume on these (I bought two) is marginal at best before distortion sets in. The distance from the transmitters (through glass) is limited to about 30-365 feet. I used the batteries that came with it and it lasted about one day. I am now trying rechargeable batteries to see if they hold up. In the end, they are decent for low volume background music but I certainly would not recommend them for a party.
Summary: We always had the TV volume up too loud so I could hear it. The neighbors could hear it too. We move the speaker around the house to listen to music or TV while we do other things. It works so well we decided to get one for my Dad who is half deaf. Our neighbors don't hear our entertainment anymore and we can actually hear the dialog on TV now. It gets tinny on some shows and we have to change bass and treble on the stereo or sometimes the bass button fixes it.

Summary: I have 3 of these all over the house tied to my stereo system. In fact all audio (TV, CD, DVD) goes through my stereo. What I like about these speakers, is the fact that you can use them in stereo or in Mono. What I don't like is the volume control. When you turn it on, I believe it comes on in FULL volume (rude blast) and there is NO indicator as to where the volume actually is on any scale. Also, for the price, I'd think they could have a remote for it.
Summary: I bought this exact speaker for a TV that sits on a shelf far from where I am viewing it. Previously I had to have the sound on the TV turned up quite loud but now I have the speaker sitting on the table next to me and I am able to turn down the sound. The only problem was that I had to buy an adaptor to hook the transmitter to the TV, other than that I liked it so much that I bought another one I am using in a different location..
Summary: this speaker is the bomb! we used two of them at our wedding dinner to play music off a playlist on the computer and they were awesome. we use them all summer long out on our deck. you can use your ipod, mp3 player, radio, whatever source and it all sounds great.
Summary: I'm playing music inside and I want to hear it outside on my patio. Forget about running speaker wires to the outside, so wireless is the way to go. I have an electrical outlet up high and I was able to hang this up from the ceiling in front of the electrical outlet. So it looks good and covers up my electrical. I connect the transmitter to my stereo, flip on the speaker and there was the music! Simple, simple, simple. I like that, because I am a simple person!
Summary: Great speaker but the ad shows that there is 2 speakers sold per set and I only received one per order. The ad shows ( 2 "Audiovox Acoustic Research AW825 Mission Style Wireless Speaker (Bronze)" but I only received one speaker Audiovox Acoustic Research AW825 Mission Style Wireless Speaker (Bronze)
