The Samsung SWA-5000/XAA Rear Stereo Amplifier comes with its own dual band transmitter that slips into a custom slot in the back of 2010 or later Samsung receivers, amplifiers and home theater in a box (HTiB) sets.
Here's how it works: After you've got your compatible Samsung product set up, you slip the included transmitter into its special slot in the back. Then you use the included speaker wires to connect your SWA-5000/XAA to the left and right surround speakers of your choice (speakers are not included). Then plug in your SWA-5000/XAA, turn it on, and you've got real surround sound.
Now if you're an astute reader you probably caught the fact that there are wires in this wireless setup.
The wires you eliminate with your SWA-5000/XAA are those long runs you have to either bury under the carpet, tack to the baseboard or, if you live alone, never have visitors, don't drink and like to live in the fast lane, just leave lying on the floor (but we still don't recommend that last one; call us scaredy cats).
In a typical home theater setup your main viewing and listening position is a couch or some recliners near the rear of the room. So you can easily plug your SWA-5000/XAA into a wall socket behind the couch and chairs, and just run a short length of wire on either side of your couch. It's not totally wireless but it's an affordable alternative to a very expensive completely wireless system.
When you're ready to step up to a completely wireless system come back and have your credit card handy. We have some great systems you're sure to love. But they're nowhere near as affordable as your SWA-5000/XAA is.
Note:The SWA-5000/XAA is not compatible with Samsung's pre-2010 models.
