Question Stereo in room where wires can't be run

I'd like to move my stereo to my living room, however, because of the position there's no way of running wire either in the ceiling or the floor. Is there a good wireless solution for speakers in this case?

There are Bluetooth speakers but I have no experience with them.

What is it you are trying to move and re-set up ?
Usually a stereo system is a receiver and two floor standing cabinets.

Right now I don't have anything. I'm trying to put a 5.1 stereo in the room,so it's mainly just two speakers across the room.

The problem with wireless speakers is that they still need power to operate.

Depending upon the quality of sound that you are looking for, and how much you want to spend, you might look into a Sonos system. They have various products that can give you an adequate 5/1 surround sound system. Their Play1, Play3 and Play 5 speakers and sound bar with sub-woofer gives a pretty nice performance. Not top shelf audiophile, but pretty good for a wireless system.
You still need AC wall outlets for each speaker though.

Power isn't a problem. I have power but that's all I have. I was hoping for some sort of bluetooth 5.1 system.

If power to each speaker isn't a problem, then why can't you run speaker wire? You could do a combination of the two. Wired for left, right, center, and sub, and wireless for surround, simply to cut down on the number of wires.
