About the AR ARW20

Wondering how in the world you're going to run wires to your surround speakers or to a second listening zone? Forget about it. Now you can go wireless instead.

Wondering how in the world you're going to run wires to your surround speakers or to a second listening zone? Forget about it. Now you can go wireless instead.

The ARW20 wireless system takes the signal from your receiver's speaker outputs and transmits it with CD quality to a pair of wireless receiver/amplifier modules that drive your speakers.

Reliable wireless connections

AR understands that wireless convenience is worthless if static and "dropouts" spoil your listening experience, so they built a transmitter that sidesteps interference from wireless networks, cordless phones, microwave ovens and other devices. It employs a sophisticated "sniff-before-transmit" algorithm that automatically finds a noise-free band for your audio signals. It's an extremely robust system that can change bands instantly without losing data or degrading your sound quality.

Expand your wireless system

The system comes with a transmitter and two 60-watt Class D receiver/amplifiers. You can add three more ARWR2 receiver/amps for a completely wireless surround sound system. (You will have to plug each of the receiver/amps into a power outlet and run a short speaker wire from each receiver/amp to a speaker.)

Features

Overview: The ARW20 is packaged as a two channel wireless system; the ARWT1 transmitter and two ARWR2 receiver/amplifiers are included. The ARWT1 is actually a 5.1 channel transmitter and additional receivers are sold separately (item number 058ARWR2), so the system can be expanded to include a complete wireless surround sound system. From the factory the included receivers are linked to the surround left and surround right channels, but they can reassigned to any of the six channels.

Transmission: The 2.4 GHz ARWT1 transmits six channels of uncompressed CD quality audio; 16 bit/44.1 kHz. Extra receiver/amplifiers (in addition to the two included with this package) can be added to the transmitter to create a 5.1 channel wireless surround system. Also, multiple receiver/amplifiers can be linked to each transmission channel to create a wireless multi-room system, stereo or multi-channel. Up to six receivers can be linked to a channel with no loss in signal quality.
