A little button on the transmitter plugged into your PC lets you switch channels to get the clearest reception of audio through your speakers. You may well need to scroll through the channels to get rid of any interference, but we found this did work, and it achieved pretty clear sound, at high volume levels. The wireless range is quite adequate too, moving the PC around a typical-sized apartment was not found to affect the sound.
Of course, if you are already running something like your DVD player through your stereo, keep in mind that you will need to remove the cables in order to plug in the Digital receiver. Otherwise this a nice cheap and easy solution to get your PC tunes wirelessly over to your stereo.
