At Unplggd, we're always trying to go wireless. It's not easy, but more and more systems are appearing on the market to cater to wireless fanatics like us. Let's be honest, unless you're willing to drill holes through your walls, you won't be able to setup multi-room speakers without creating a mess.
Also, if you live in an apartment, you probably won't be able to do so, unless your landlord agrees to some extra holes. Well, thankfully, Mint's just released an update to their wireless speaker system. It looks exactly the same as the old Mint 220, but they changed the name to Mint Studio. The Studio fixes some of the bugs of the older model and it's cheaper, which is good in our book.
It's not without faults, but for the price, it's a good alternative. Mainly, you'd be getting this system for the convenience of having something completely wireless. This console can also act as an iPhone/iPod dock. The system comes with a USB hub to make the music from your computer resound all over your pad without any wires. You have the ability to support three different units from one transmitting laptop, which is kind of cool. The units have to be within 100 feet of each other. This easily works on multiple floors of the same house and works well through walls. You'll have to pay about $130 in order to get this system.
