The owner wants wireless audio receivers that patrons can use to select content from any TV in the bar. Is there any way to accomplish this?

A. There are several manufacturers that produce products that serve this function. For this specific application, I would look at the Sprox SD4 Sounddog receiver. The SD4 is a four-channel receiver that operates in the 72 to 76 MHz band and has a 29-hour replaceable nickel metal hydride (NiMH) battery. The receiver, along with its low power transmitter, will enable the bar owner to broadcast up to four sources to a tabletop unit, which will provide patrons with source selection and master volume control.

Next month's question: I have a client who has adjacent rooms with serious crosstalk problems. Due to a sub-par partition between the rooms, the client can hear voices from the other room even when the audio system isn't being used. What measurements should I perform to select suitable acoustic panels to solve the problem?
