Hi i want advice on a new setup for my room.

I want speakers that are connected to my tv, and then i want to be able to stream from my macbook to these speakers too. Stream as using Airfoil and stream the systems audio to there, not just from streaming services.
Right now i have this solution, but im using a chromecast audio, and loose cables and it doesnt really work properly with lots of fallouts.
What would be the way to go here?

I am guessing Macs still have bluetooth, unless Apple decided that was also too convenient to use and is making people buy $200 Apple bluetooth adapters as extras.

Any soundbar or speaker with bluetooth will be able to connect to your computer as an audio devaice.

These Swans models have gotten very good reviews, have optical inputs from your TV and bluetooth for wireless connection to other devices https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0010LH2VS/ref=sspa_dk_detail_1?pd_rd_i=B0010LH2VS&pd_rd_w=uCgzh&pf_rd_p=45a72588-80f7-4414-9851-786f6c16d42b&pd_rd_wg=jXoR8&pf_rd_r=HE9XJZTY7PMDH4JE90RF&pd_rd_r=9c8bd8a7-469d-4421-934e-9905a168fb87&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEzS1U0V0Y2MlQ4ODNLJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNDMwODIxUTBYMzVGSDZFVTFFJmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTA0MDcwODYxWUg3N1RYQTJFMlMzJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfZGV0YWlsJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ&th=1

A decent cheaper option would be these Edifiers, they also have a sub out so if you find the bass to be low you can add a powered sub https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073W1R4XQ/ref=sspa_dk_detail_6?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B073W1R4XQ&pd_rd_w=RnM8p&pf_rd_p=45a72588-80f7-4414-9851-786f6c16d42b&pd_rd_wg=ZEehN&pf_rd_r=J95B2QN801JR2GPQP8HS&pd_rd_r=3ca36e3d-1957-4616-a2e9-db2c89f1649d&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExTVlZS0VBRFJZWlJJJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMTQ4MzY5M1BCS1Q1OUJGV0xUNyZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNjEwODE4MzhKRFI5UEVJSVNHWCZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2RldGFpbCZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=

If you want something with rear speakers and is a cheaper but still sounds pretty good with music and movies, i like the Vizio smartcast soundbars, I compared several soundbars from 100-400ish, and the Vizio had the best music quality to me. I found a model on craigslist for $80, very happy with it. https://www.vizio.com/home-theater-system/sb3651e6.html Has a wireless sub, and the rear speakers attach with wires to the sub, I just have them sitting on the floor behind my couch. After I got them, there was a movie playing with rain and my daughter thought it was raining outside, so the surround sound is pretty good :)
