Our take on the AR ARWR2

by Jim Richardson

Install a complete surround sound system or a multi-room audio system without running wires through your walls. For five-channel home theater, add three of these receiver/amplifiers to your ARW20 wireless system. For multi-room applications, you can send the same audio channel to as many as six receiver/amps throughout your home.
