In this technological era, there are many ways by which we can wirelessly stream music from one room to the other. One of the ways is the DTS Play-Fi, which stands out from the other methods, as it allow users to make use of a variety of products from different manufacturers. DTS has now announced a new list of partners who will be joining soon.
The company has now decided to add many products to the DTS Play-Fi family. DTS Play-Fi makes use of the existing Wi-Fi set up of your home to stream music from tablets, smartphones, desktops, and laptops to different devices in the house. The best part is that you can make the whole house system with any device in the DTS Play-Fi ecosystem. This means that you can have the Definitive Technology Wireless Music System in a room and the Integra DLB-5 in some other room in your house, and have both of the devices on the same wireless network for music.
The current DTS Play-Fi lineup include more than thirty speakers that are interoperable, soundbars, as well as receivers from firms like Anthem, Aerix, Autonomic, Arcam, Definitive Technology, Klipsch, Fusion Research, MartinLogan, Integra, McIntosh, Paradigm, Onkyo, Pioneer, Phorus, Polk Audio, Wren Sound Systems, and Sonus faber.
The company is planning to add many more products to the list, including the Dish Hopper 3 and Joey. It is reported that both Hopper 3 and Joey set top boxes will get a new software update soon, which will allow users to stream synchronized music throughout the house to the wireless connected speakers. Onkyo, Pioneer, and Integra will also release similar updates soon.
Multiroom audio is becoming a major feature in many of the audio products now. Dish Network has officially announced that they will add DTS Play-Fi to some of their devices. “The Hopper is capable of serving as a household’s comprehensive entertainment hub,” Niraj Desai, Dish vice president of product management, said in a statement. “Incorporating DTS Play-Fi technology into our offerings provides DISH customers with a premium whole-home music streaming option, in addition to the television experience they already love, at no additional cost.”
At the heart of this functionality from Dish Network is the Dish Music app. The app not only offer control over the Dish hardware, but also add compatible DTS Play-Fi speakers to the audio setup.
