TV or stereo with RCA to wireless speaker

In summary, this one would work:Not much, just a small transistor radio volume. Something with a 3" speaker is plenty. It's a 12'X12' room that is quiet other than a fan.

Hi All

I am looking for the cheapest way to connect the Direct TV box with RCA connector audio output to a wireless speaker in another room. It can be the lowest sound quality as I am only listening to the news, no music. My work room do not have Direct tv, I just want to pipe the sound from the living room ( with the Direct TV box) to the work room. It can be mono

The room is about 30ft from the Direct TV box. Can Blue Tooth cover the range?
I looked at this one:https://www.amazon.com/dp/B015SDNW2Q/?tag=pfamazon01-20
But I don't think it has a transmitter with RCA connection.

I looked at this:https://www.amazon.com/dp/B008DSBOME/?tag=pfamazon01-20

It's $72, I really don't need anything this fancy.

Please advice.

thanks

Alan

I can't help with 'cheapest', but Rocketfish has (or had?) a full suite of products like this. I use it to allow any source to be picked up on my deck or kitchen without wires.It is pretty high quality sound, but not cheap at all. Rather more expensive than I would have liked. With rocketfish, there is a transmitter unit and receiver/amplifier unit. You use whatever speakers you want. For my deck, I use high end Polk speakers.

There seem to be a number of Bluetooth audio transmitters like these:

This one has only a 3.5mm stereo audio plug, for the headphone jack on an iPod etc.; not a pair of RCA plugs like on your DirecTV box. However, you can use a Y-adapter like this:

Thanks
So this one connects to the Direct TV with a RCA to 3.5mm. Then what speaker to buy? Like this one:https://www.amazon.com/dp/B015SDNW2Q/?tag=pfamazon01-20

Thanks

How much sound do you need, in how big of a room?

Related to TV or stereo with RCA to wireless speaker

1. What is RCA?

RCA, or Radio Corporation of America, is a type of connector used to transmit audio and video signals from one device to another. It is typically found in older TVs and stereos.

2. How does an RCA to wireless speaker work?

An RCA to wireless speaker works by converting the audio signal from the RCA output into a wireless signal that can be received by the wireless speaker. This allows you to play audio from your TV or stereo through the wireless speaker without the need for any additional wires.

3. Can I use an RCA to wireless speaker with any TV or stereo?

In most cases, yes. As long as your TV or stereo has an RCA output, you should be able to use an RCA to wireless speaker without any issues. However, it is always recommended to check the compatibility of your devices before purchasing any equipment.

4. How far can the wireless signal reach from the RCA to wireless speaker?

The range of the wireless signal can vary depending on the specific product and its manufacturer. However, most RCA to wireless speaker systems have a range of up to 150 feet, which should be sufficient for most home setups.

5. Are there any downsides to using an RCA to wireless speaker?

One potential downside is that the audio quality may not be as good as using a wired connection. This is because the wireless signal can sometimes experience interference or weaker signal strength. Additionally, some RCA to wireless speaker systems may require batteries or need to be charged, which can be inconvenient for some users.
