Could I make these wirelessly operated by attaching them to my time capsule?

Unfortunately the Time Capsule does not support AirTunes (streaming music wirelessly), but the Airport Express does.

No, they need wires to operate. Just as a side note, after researching these speakers on the companies US and UK websites, and many other websites that sell upscale speakers for computers, I never saw in any of their pictures with the speakers one wire. They went out of their way to hide the wires in a way that i thought they were trying to lead people to believe that the MM-1s were wireless. Even know the product descriptions I read did not mention that they are wireless speakers, I did not think to look at that. Because they neither mentioned anything about the speakers being wireless or wired, just from all the pictures I looked at with the wires not even being hooked up, the pictures looked as if they were wireless. So, although it was not a big deal to me I actually thought I was getting wireless speakers.
Just in case the many pictures on the websites from the company, which they have several nice pictures of the speakers set-up to systems on very nice furniture, but, since they never even hooked up the AC/DC plug, speaker-to speaker connection, and the cord to the adapter out on top of nice furniture, I assumed that even know I did not see "wireless" that there might be a chance they are wireless. But no, there are several wires and cables to hook up, and nearly impossible to hide the cables/wires unless you do not use them, but you do need the wires/cables unless you are just interested in nice looking pictures. lol;
If you go to their US or UK website, email the tech team your question and I am sure you will get a good solid answer, especially since you are thinking about purchasing the speakers. As far as the customer support after the purchase, I have experienced a total shock in the lack of interest in my satisfaction and help when one of the speakers gave out. However, that is another story, but something to think about.
