I have a Yamaha Desktop Audio System that I really enjoy in my bedroom, but would enjoy listening to the radio in the kitchen as well. I was looking today at bluetooth speakers (the Yamaha is equipped with Bluetooth) on Amazon, but some of them said that they can't be used if there is a wall between the source and the speaker. Is this true of all such speakers? They just don't give you that much information on most of them. The speaker would only be maybe 15 feet away, but yes, there is a wall in between. Also, are some speakers likely to have problems being close to a microwave and refrigerator?

15 feet is well within range for BT especially if they're running 4.0 (even through hollow, wood framed walls ... brick or cement walls present more of a barrier) and though, technically, microwaves and wireless phones on the 2.4Ghz frequency can cause interference, I have not found that to be a problem irl.

Sounds like you're reading the reviews and not the actual product description, am I right?
MY BT Speaker has no problem going through plaster or drywall.

If your system has BT, why don't you pair it up with your smartphone, run to the kitchen and test it?
