Hi mli620, 


Thanks for posting and welcome to the Bose Community. I am glad to hear that you have purchased a Lifestyle 650! 


This will not have any effect on the audio. 


I hope this helps and if you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask. 


Kind Regards,

Thanks Hector 

It does really helpful as I couldn't find this information elsewhere. And struggling to make a decision before setup properly on the wall.

So now I can just use wireless connections and save to get some extension cables for wired connections.

Re: Lifestyle 650 rear speakers

I have had the LS 650 for a month now, upgraded from the LS48.  The sould is excellent.  Regarding the rear speakers, I can not tell any difference in sound being wireless, personally I think they sound fantastic.  Would they sound better being wired instead of wireless?  Perhaphs a wired conection does have some advatages.  But I dont think its something you could tell with naked ear, I cant tell the difference.  Look at it this way, have you ever used a wireless mouse or wiresless headphones, they work just fine and its very difficult to tell the difference.  I use Apple wireless Airpods all the time and can not tell the sound difference between the wireless and wired ones.  A wired connection will proabably always be a little better, but we are at a point in technology where wireless has come to the point that you really cant tell them apart without using a computer.  


If its really something thats important to you, try wireing the rears in and do a test to see what you think sounds better.  I am pretty sure you wont be able to tell the difference.
