Home Theater Receiver - Wireless Speakers

Is there such a thing?
I can't seem to find any.
My Wife hates the wires of my old system with wires for all the speakers and I thought to leverage that to buy a new wireless system.
Or how about using my existing receiver and speakers, but adapting them with wireless hookups?
Looking to spend under $1000

Thanks BUG.
So I read the article and checked out all the offerings via the links.
I think the short answer is that there's really no good option if you want DTS, unless you want to spend a coupla grand.
The cheapest option starts at $1000.

St-Fabien de Panet, …
Your best bet is probably to use wired fronts, center, and sub. then use wireless rears. How about some of the 5.1 sound bar options which use a sub and wireless rear speakers?

If I get the wireless rears, how would they connect to my current receiver? It only has wire outputs. Is there an adapter?

I had the same problem. I fished the wires behind the walls and baseboards. My surrounds are mounted high up on the walls on each side. Can't see any wires anymore on any speaker.

I tried a BOSE Solo 5 Soundbar for around $300.
I tried to like it - but in the end I returned it and setup my DTS/5.1 Receiver/Spkrs again.
My conclusion is you can't fake 5.1/DTS (yet)
