From DTS
Android-based users of the DTS Play-Fi whole-home wireless ecosystem can now stream Rhapsody and Rdio over Wi-Fi to their DTS Play-Fi enabled speakers.

Rhapsody and Rdio are among the world's biggest music streaming services, with Rhapsody providing access to more than 34 million songs and Rdio offering a catalog of more than 32 million songs.

A key differentiator of DTS Play-Fi in the whole-home wireless market is that consumers have the flexibility to mix and match speakers featuring different price points and styles, from their favorite brands, including:

Definitive Technology
Phorus
Polk
Wren

Additional brands will be announced shortly. All the speakers deliver incredible lossless audio quality across any standard Wi-Fi network.

Anthony Bay, CEO of Rdio, said: "Rdio is committed to innovating streaming by simplifying the way people enjoy music. We are pleased to further customize the Rdio listening experience by integrating our unsurpassed catalog of more than 35 million songs and powerful music discovery features across the DTS Play-Fi ecosystem."

In other DTS Play-Fi news, iTunes users can now enjoy their favorite music over their Play-Fi system in high-resolution audio, enabling crystal-clear, lossless sound throughout the home. iOS devices now support high-res audio up to 24-bit/192-kHz using the following formats: WAV, FLAC, and ALAC, which Play-Fi supports as well.
