Every user in the home can simultaneously stream from different smartphones, tablets or PCs that incorporate the Play-Fi software. DTS’ Play-Fi technology makes it all possible.
- Exceptional Sound Experience – the Play-Fi technology wirelessly transmits high-quality “lossless” audio, with no impact on sound quality.
