Whole House Speakers For The Discerning Listener

Definitive Technology has recently announced an exciting line of products that can easily build an impressive wireless multi-room sound system. With multiple awards for excellent sound quality, Definitive Technology is already well known for their premiere speakers. This system uses DTS’s Play-Fi™ technology to transmit Hi-Fi over WiFi with better quality than Bluetooth. The setup require an existing WiFi network to operate and can link up to 16 individual zones. With the addition of these wireless speakers and components, users can fill every room of their home with their favorite music while conveniently controlling the entire system using the Definitive Technology mobile app.

How Does It Work?

Definitive Technology wireless speakers connect to an existing WiFi network using DTS Play-Fi and are controlled with the free Play-Fi app for apple or android portable devices. You can start with 1 speaker and add more later, or you can set up every room in your house at the same time. A wireless router is required for the system to work.

Why Is DTS Play-Fi Better?

DTS Play-Fi is a streaming technology developed by DTS, an audio company well known in the cinema world for outstanding sound in movies. This technology uses an existing WiFi network to stream audio to compatible Play-Fi speakers. The biggest advantage Play-Fi offers is the ability to stream lossless audio from your smartphone, tablet or other portable device. This means the sound quality will be much better than Bluetooth and interruptions in streaming will be minimal due to the Play-Fi load balancing technique. The combination of this advanced streaming technology paired with Definitive Technology’s award winning speakers gives you the ability to enjoy audiophile grade sound wirelessly throughout your home.

What Can I Stream?
What Do I Need To Get Started?

All you need to get started is 1 or more Definitive Technology wireless speakers, smartphone or tablet with the Play-Fi app downloaded and a wireless router.

Can I Play Lossless Files?

Yes, Definitive Technology Wireless Collection products will reproduce lossless files up to 16-bit/48kHz (CD Quality) and proper file handling for full compatibility with all high-resolution music up to 24bit/192k. They play all format bitrates [kbps]. The DTS Play-Fi™ software currently transmits hi-resolution files, but it does down-sample them so that they can be distributed throughout a home.

How Many Speakers Can I connect?

Users can connect up to 8 wireless speakers to a single smartphone or tablet with each speaker playing the same or different music. It's not recommended to exceed 16 speakers in a single home due to bandwidth constraints.f

In addition, users can have up to 8 different wireless devices (tablets, phones, etc.) connected to the Play-Fi network for system control.
