Spotify Now Available on DTS Play-Fi Systems

By |


spotify-logo.gifDTS has announced the immediate addition of Spotify to its Play-Fi wireless ecosystem. Owners of Play Fi products from companies like Polk, Definitive Technology, and Wren can now access their Spotify Premium account through the Play-Fi mobile/PC app or connect to a Play-Fi speaker directly from the Spotify app.

From DTS
DTS, Inc. has announced that Spotify has joined the DTS Play-Fi ecosystem. Spotify Premium subscribers can now stream their favorite music in the highest quality over their existing Wi-Fi network to their favorite connected speaker brands that incorporate Play-Fi technology, including Definitive Technology, Phorus , Polk Audio and Wren. Spotify features more than 30 million songs available to its base of more than 15 million Spotify Premium subscribers.

With the addition of Spotify Connect support for DTS Play-Fi, Spotify Premium subscribers will instantly see all connected Play-Fi enabled speakers directly within the Spotify app. They will also be able to immediately launch and use their Spotify service from within the Play-Fi branded apps from DTS and its audio component partners. Simply choose a Play-Fi speaker, and the music will begin streaming in pristine, lossless audio.

DTS's Play-Fi technology provides listeners with the freedom and flexibility to stream their music wirelessly from smartphones, tablets, laptops or desktop PCs over an existing home Wi-Fi network to any number of connected speakers that incorporate the Play-Fi technology throughout the home.

At launch, DTS partner products from Definitive Technology, Phorus, Polk Audio and Wren will support streaming from Spotify Premium accounts to any one Play-Fi speaker on a Wi-Fi network using the Spotify Connect protocol. DTS will be extending this experience by enabling multi-room enjoyment of Spotify via Play-Fi whole-home technology for Android and iOS users later this year. DTS's Play-Fi HD premium Windows software allows listeners to enjoy Spotify in multiple rooms, on multiple speakers today.

Additional DTS Play-Fi technology benefits include:
• Exceptional Sound Experience: Play-Fi wirelessly transmits high-quality "lossless" audio.
• Whole-Home Range: Play-Fi works everywhere your Wi-Fi does, even if range extenders are used. It works over Ethernet, Powerline, and other IP-based networking technologies, too. There is no need for proprietary bridges or routers. Most homes already have everything that is needed.
• Stream Anything. Control Everything: In addition to streaming music services using Play-Fi drivers for Windows and Android, users can download Play-Fi apps for Android, iOS, and Kindle Fire to gain access to more than 20,000 radio stations, podcasts, local music, media servers, and select cloud-based music services. Set up, link and control all of the speakers on the network from the same streamlined interfaces.
