My thought is to take a USB sound card and wire each of the individual output channels ( wires ) to separate transmitters. That way I could transmit each individual channel to separate speakers. Each remote speaker would have its own receiver.
This would effectively create a wireless 5.1 surround sound system.
Is this even feasible?
I think I would need 12 arduino boards plus the usb sound card, plus transmitter hardware. Would I also need a DAC and ADC at each pair?
Would it be a better idea to open up the sound card and find the digital signal for each channel and transmit that?
I was an electronics tech in the military and even though it’s been a really long time since I did any serious component level troubleshooting, I should still be able to look at a schematic and pin out on chips to figure out where the signals are going.
Yeah, as I’m reading more and more, trying to see if this is possible, I’m realizing that what I’m thinking about really isn’t possible with current hardware from a DIY perspective. At least not with relatively simple circuits like I would be working with.
I guess I’m waiting for WiSA to come down in price and dealing with all of my wires in the mean time….
