I have a setup at home with which I channel HDMI sound into my monitor, from which I then send audio via a 3.5mm jack into an old pioneer hi fi set I inherited. While not optimal its a nice way to allow me to use audio from either my PC or switch to my other consoles via an HDMI splitter.

I've been toying with the idea of changing the set up tho, moving things around the room, buying a second monitor just for consoles etc. but I want to use my hi fi for all audio sources, preferably without wires. If I google wireless solutions I get buncha streaming devices which is not what interested me. I also found something called Hp wireless audio but it uses an USB to transmit audio to a station which is not what I am looking for.

Is there something that has an 3.5mm entrance that transmits wireless to a station with an 3.5mm exit? Preferably a station that could take multiple such sources and I could pick from them?

Thanks

One option is to get a Bluetooth Transmitter and Receiver. Two of these can be paired together. One in transmitting mode and one in receiving mode. The Bluetooth option is nice as you aren't susceptible to static. The downside is the limited range of Bluetooth.

Don't forget your USB power jack for these.

You can go with Sonos. But you will pay through the nose.

There are analog wireless transmitters and receivers. Just connect the audio and skip the video connector. They have better range. As they are analog you may pickup some or a lot of static noise.

FYI, anything with RCA jacks is fine. Just use a mini jack to RCA cable rather than a mini to mini cable.

The problem with wireless is it usually adds a delay. For music this is not a problem but when you need the audio to be in sync with video it only takes a fraction of a second for any sync issue to be really annoying.

Analog transmitters are better in that respect. You don't get the same delay in processing digital can cause.

Thanks, I will try one of those, probably the analog solution since that seems to be the closes to what I'd like.
