Breakthrough DTS Play-Fi(R) technology powers simple, great-sounding whole-home wireless audio systems for smartphones and tablets. You can stream your favorite tunes over Wi-Fi right from the Play-Fi app to speakers from DTS Play-Fi product partners. It's a huge step up from Bluetooth - the audio quality and reliability are outstanding, and you can enjoy music from your phone in one room, or all your rooms.

The "Hi-Fi over Wi-Fi" listening experience is just a touch away, thanks to this handy app. Choose a speaker, choose a song, and your favorite tunes are streaming all through the house.

The app offers built-in streaming options: stream from worldwide music services; use AM/FM and Internet radio, connect to DLNA servers, or play anything from your device's music library, including your iTunes playlists. The app automatically organizes and indexes the music for you.

The app also handles set-up for your speakers, and gives you full control of volume and speaker selection. Choose one, set up speaker groups, or stream to all of them at once. Manage speaker groups for Spotify Connect, too.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have a Play-Fi product from Polk Audio, Definitive Technology or Phorus, please search for and download the custom Play-Fi app for your audio brand.

Please also note that the Play-Fi app is companion software to audio products enabled with Play-Fi technology. It is not intended as a stand-alone audio player.

Widgets and Presets are the bomb

You have to look for them, but once you start using them it gets you to your music quicker than any other App.

This app is horrible. I bought a 600 dollar Paradigm speaker that is the same concept as Sonos and it never works. I currently have 9 sonos speakers in my house and they and the app are bullet proof. Works every time. I bought the Paradigm speaker because the sound quality is better than the Sonos. That is true the quality is a little better but the frustration with this app is not worth it. Every time I open the Play-Fi app is takes a few minutes to connect. Then randomly while listening to music it stops the music and says trying to reconnect.....and trying to reconnect......and again trying to reconnect. Then once it does work for 2 songs every time I get an email or txt it makes the tone through the speaker. Then guess what trying to reconnect. I went as far as buying an iPad mini that was just for playing music through this app and still same things. DO NOT USE THIS APP OR BUY ANYTHING RELATED TO IT. I threw the speaker away and went to Costco and got 2 more sonos play 1.

Play-fi is almost done it’s catch up phase

On iPad at work so it’ll be short.

Play-Fi is so amazing for its openness with other integrations, it almost led to its downfall. I applaud the company for taking on many different manufacturers and not being pigeonholed into a one stream audio option. Reading reviews from 3 years ago is beneficial to see where the company came from but certainly not how it is today.

My one suggestion is that Play-Fi offer a hub that can be hardwired via Ethernet to a modem. Offer, not require. So that someone like myself can set up an entire system with many Play-Fi devices at one location and move the equipment to another. Otherwise you guys are doing great.

Tried to keep it as short as possible.
