I'm sorry if this a rather basic question(s), but we have an old Yamaha RX596 receiver which still sounds great and is built like a brick ****house, but due to its age, it doesn't have bluetooth capability.
If I want to run another pair of speakers in another room, I would have to run wires through the ceiling or under the carpet. I've just built a pair of Craig's excellent 830656 and DA25 Peerless two ways and would like to use them in our study. Our main speakers - Curt Campbell's Slapshot MTMs also run off the Yamaha.
Then I thought about bluetooth. I've read several articles about this and thoroughly confused myself, as I'm not the most tech-savvy person.
So, please bear with me as I ask:
• what do I attach to the speakers' binding posts instead of the wires?
• do the speakers need to have an internal amplifier, or does the output from the amplifier just travel through the air rather than the wires?
• what would I need to attach to the receiver's speaker output terminals - they're spring loaded, you poke the end of the speaker wires into them;
• would it be possible to have a bluetooth sub as well - not a deal breaker as the speakers have quite acceptable bass as they are;
• or am I trying to do the impossible and need to fork out for a bluetooth capable receiver and speakers with built in amplifiers?
Thank you for any suggestions, etc!
Oh, and a Happy and above all, safe Christmas to all
