DTS Play-Fi expands to more products


Following its previous announcement, DTS was extending the reach of its Play-Fi wireless audio ecosystem deeper into a home theater, more details on the specific brands and products that have been launched.

New Play-Fi products launched include TVs, soundbars, speakers, amplifiers and AV receivers. DTS also updated android and iOS mobile apps that work with all products and brands that support DTS Play-Fi.

With DTS Play-Fi receiving CES 2022 Innovation Awards in two categories for its latest Play-Fi home theater functionality and the upgraded Play-Fi mobile apps, Sonos and WiSA would do well to beware.

Some of the features supported by DTS Play-Fi for home theater apps include:

  • Ability to use a Play-Fi enabled soundbar, discrete Play-Fi enabled speakers, or the TV’s built-in speakers as the TV’s front channels.
  • Add Play-Fi enabled speakers as surround speakers for a TV or soundbar to envelop the listener in sound.
  • Add up to two Play-Fi-enabled subwoofers to bring deep, room-shaking bass to your TV
  • Use add-on Play-Fi features like multi-room TV grouping with Play-Fi-enabled speakers for music, TV audio, and app-based headphone listening.
