Go wireless with just about any audio source
Russound's X1 wireless audio system lets you send music from up to four audio sources in a central location to as many rooms as you'd like, without running wires. The X1-RX2 receives wireless audio signals from Russound's X1-TX8 transmitter (required, sold separately). Use one receiver in every room where you want music, like a bedroom, kitchen, patio, or porch.
This receiver features a stereo RCA output for connection to a receiver, amp, or powered speakers. There's also an optical digital output for connection to your DAC or a digital-ready amp or receiver.
The X1 system operates on multiple wireless bands for noise-free performance. It doesn't require a connection to your Wi-Fi® home network and can switch between bands automatically to limit interference from other wireless activity. The receiver's front-panel buttons let you set the wireless frequency and toggle between the audio sources connected to the transmitter.

More details on the Russound X1-RX2
Wireless Receiver: The Russound X1-RX2 wireless receiver is part of Russound's X1 professional wireless audio platform and designed for multi-room audio applications. The Russound X1-RX2 communicates directly with a Russound X1 transmitter (X1-TX8, required and sold separately) from a distance up to 100'. With both line-level analog and optical digital outputs, the X1-RX2 connects to an external amplifier to deliver high-quality audio without lengthy cable runs; a perfect multi-zone audio solution for retrofit applications.
Triple Wireless Bands: Russound's X1 professional wireless audio system operates over three bands - 2.4GHz, 5.2GHz and 5.8GHz - featuring Channel Hopping mode or Fixed Channel mode. The Channel Hopping mode will combat crowded spaces by searching for the cleanest channel within the band. Although the X1 wireless system uses bands that are in the WiFi spectrum, the proprietary digital signal transmitted is not used in the WiFi system. This provides a more reliable connection with very low latency between the original source signal and the output receiver, eliminating any echo effect.
Note: The 2.4GHz operates better through walls than the higher frequency. However, this band is widely used in many systems including WiFi. If the band is crowded interference may occur. The 5.2GHz and 5.8GHz bands do not go through walls at the same distance as the lower bands. However, they will have less interference.
Analog & Digital Output: The Russound X1-RX2 wireless receiver is fitted with analog Stereo (RCA) output and optical (toslink) digital output to connect to your home AV receiver's or integrated amplifier's stereo RCA input or optical digital input.
Adjustable Diversity Antennas: The X1-RX2 wireless receiver features two adjustable diversity antennas to optimize performance. These external antennas are used to increase signal range. The two antennas should be in vertical and parallel position for maximum performance.
Metal Chassis: The wireless receiver's metal enclosure provides increased EMI resistance and better wireless performance. For best performance, locate the receiver in locations that is not surrounded by other metal or other equipment that may interfere with transmission.
Mounting Bracket: The X1-RX2 wireless receiver can be placed on any flat surface or securely mounted on the wall with the included mounting bracket. The included versatile mounting bracket makes it easy to install the X1-RX2 wireless receiver in out-of-sight locations for a clutter-free living environment.
AC Power Adapter: The Russound X1-RX2 wireless receiver operates off of standard household current using the supplied external AC power adapter (input: 100-240V~50/60Hz, 0.5A; output: 5.0V-1.2A
