The short story: I have a sound system in my family room, and I’d like to hook up two wireless speakers to it that will be located in the dining room.

Currently in my family room, I have a Denon AVR-S510BT receiver (http://www.amazon.com/Denon-AVR-S510BT-Channel-Receiver-Bluetooth/dp/B00YAO43YG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1448668609&sr=8-1&keywords=denon+510) hooked up to a 5.1 surround system. I would like to find some way to have wireless speakers (ideally two) connected to this system but located in the dining room. That way I could have the 5.1 system in the family room playing the same music as the wireless speakers in the dining room.

While I’ve used wireless speakers before and know that they’re out there, I can’t seem to figure out a way to connect wireless speakers to my receiver in addition to the existing 5.1 speakers already connected and located in the family room.

I’d love to know if there’s a solution out there, what it entails, and what I would need to buy (and recommendations on equipment). Any help would be greatly appreciated!
 
The simplest option is to use the Denon HEOS speakers that will work with your receiver (or independently) with the HEOS app for control.

You could also connect a Bluetooth transmitter to the zone 2 pre outs on the receiver. If you want stereo in the dining room you would need a pair of stereo BT speakers (one speaker contains the BT receiver and amp for both). If two mono speakers is ok then you would need a BT transmitter that will pair with two speakers at the same time like this one

I'd never heard of HEOS before. Let me know if I'm understanding the setup correctly: I would buy a HEOS speaker (or two), and register the speaker and the receiver in the HEOS app, then I could play music over Bluetooth to both the speaker and the receiver at the same time? And the speaker and receiver wouldn't need to be connected at all save through the HEOS app?

It looks like I'd need a HEOS Link device to connect my receiver, is that correct? Pretty steep at $349.
