Was very disappointed to find out that t

This worked wonderful for us. No unsightly wires running across the room. Price was fantastic, would have been at least 50 dollars more anywhere else

Great product.


I would recommend this to anyone that hates the sight of wires everywhere. This was the only place on the Internet where you can get the combo package of the two, receiver and transmitter. Sounds great with my plasma.
