DTS Play-Fi for whole home TV Audio launched
Home AV NewsDTS has announced a new addition to its "Line-In Streaming" feature allowing whole-home TV audio streaming.
It is now available for select sound bars and all-in-one speakers via free software updates, although it looks to be a US-centric roll-out. It will enable users to broadcast audio from any connected source, such as a TV, to other DTS Play-Fi speakers in the home.
The new whole-home TV audio feature synchronises speakers to each other and to the video source, creating lip-synch accurate multi-room playback without an echo. The update is currently available for the following DTS Play-Fi-enabled products:
Klipsch Gate receiver
Klipsch PowerGate amplifier
Klipsch RSB-8 sound bar
Klipsch RSB-14 sound bar
Klipsch RW-1 speaker
Klipsch The Capitol Three speaker
Klipsch The Three speaker
McIntosh MB50 streaming audio player
Onkyo Smart Speaker G3
Paradigm PW LINK pre-amplifier
Phorus PS10 speaker
Pioneer Elite Smart Speaker F4
Polk Omni S6 speaker
"We are excited to add whole-home TV audio streaming to the DTS Play-Fi ecosystem, allowing consumers to broadcast audio from their TV to other speakers without an echo or compromised video synchronization," said Dannie Lau, general manager, DTS Play-Fi, at Xperi. "Whether you're hosting a Big Game watch party, or just listening to your favorite show while cooking, DTS Play-Fi provides a no-compromise whole-home experience for TV listening. Additional DTS Play-Fi partners will incorporate the technology into their DTS Play-Fi enabled products this year, giving consumers even more flexibility when selecting their home theater products."
