Question Samsung HT-J5500W 5.1-Channel Smart Blu-ray Home Theater System advice

Jul 4, 2023
Hi. I have a five-year-old Samsung HT-J5500W 5.1-Channel Smart Blu-ray Home Theater System installed. It includes Blu-ray disc player/AV receiver,
  • Speaker system: main channel speaker: 8.34 cm x 10.1 cm x 17.1 cm / 500 g
  • Speaker system: center channel speaker: 26.9 cm x 10.1 cm x 8.8 cm / 600 g
  • Speaker system: subwoofer: 25.5 cm x 25.5 cm x 29.7 cm / 4.4 kg
I am a dummy at home theatre systems. I have not watched a DVD in over 4 years. I want to upgrade to a wireless speakers system. At least I want the four smaller speakers wireless. The only speaker that works regularly is the center channel speaker. My questions are should I purchase an entire new system with wireless speakers? Would the existing Blu-ray player/AV receiver work with wireless speakers? Thank you in advance for your suggestions.

You should add wireless functionality to your existing system. Some home theater systems offer wireless transmitter and receiver kits that can be used to make your existing speakers wireless. This would allow you to keep your current Blu-ray player/AV receiver and upgrade only the speakers.
