I have an Onkyo CR-505DAB is there any way of powering wifi speaker from this system rather than the wired speakers.
Hello, and sorry you're having problems. We are now connected on this website- which saves you money over having a Tech come to your home, and in many cases we can fix the problem you're having. No, the Onkyo does not have a Wi Fi transmitter or receiver so therefore cannot send a Wi Fi signal directly to any devices.
The only workaround to use wireless speakers is to purchase "Blue Tooth" speakers and then purchase a plug in Blue Tooth transmitter which connects to the Onkyo's headphone jack which will then send signal to BT enabled speakers: Feel free to reply back if you need more help, or want to reply back with more details.

OK that is what I thought, however will sound quality be lost & how does it keep the stereo sound?
Thanks for the reply. The sound quality will not be lost since current BlueTooth is audio quality. As far as stereo is concerned, this depends on which BT speaker you purchase. Some "sum" the signal to mono, and some are actual stereo speakers.
