Need some advice for my home theatre setup

Just bought a new house, leaving behind my post divorce bachelor pad...

I currently have a 5.1 setup with wired rear speakers (a fantastic set of Bose 201 speakers). The new place, the family room, there is no way to run wires to the rear speakers (Basement below is completely finished).

I have a Denon receiver and a Polk towers/center/sub.

What are my options for running rear speakers to retain a 5.1 setup?

I'd like to keep my Bose speakers as they are excellent. If not I could always buy a new set of rear speakers.

I have seen gadgets like the Rocketfish Universal Wireless Rear Speaker Kit RF-WHTIB-A



Seems like a fairly simple solution. Has a transceiver at both ends and transmits signal wirelessly. Not a lot of great reviews on Amazon though...

Question is do these work well? Also I have a fairly high output system, do the wireless units have the ability to handle high sound levels?

Or is there a better option?

Thanks
