that wireless technology looks VERY promising! I thought about getting wireless speakers, but they were just too expensive and laggy for me...

I guess I have no excuse for not being as awesome as King... - iKillSteal

Seriously, big credit goes out to King for maintaining this list. He puts a lot of work into this thing and he deserves our thanks! - Verran

True, but one you go to wireless speakers, each speaker requires a power brick to power it :(
