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.

Super slow and always loses XM login

There is no reason for the app to be this slow. It has the potential to be awesome and a solid substitute for Sonos. Can also let you achieve whole home multi zone without a ton of extra hardware. But seriously, this app can be better. Also super annoying that XM channel navigation in this app is that bad. Must be fixed!!!

Great sound

Really enjoying my Paradigm in wall speakers powered by PW AMPs

I upgraded sound bars just to have Play Fi so I wouldn't have to turn on all of my home theater components to AirPlay. Initially it worked fine. Now updates repeatedly fail and it takes hours to do simple firmware upgrades. It also shows multiple instances of the same sound bar so when I try to play music it shows its playing yet you hear no audio or you get errors that the sound bar is being controlled by another user. There's no easy way (that I've found at least) to delete either one or both instances of the sound bar so now I'm back where I started except I actually paid specifically to ugprade my sound bar to have a feature that no longer works. And herein lies the problem with technology - instead of manufacturer's implementing AirPlay, they had to go and reinvent the wheel with DTS and when it doesn't work - you're at the mercy of DTS to make things work because the manufacturer's are going to point the finger at DTS and DTS the manufacturers. Extremely frustrating.
