For the first time, there is a technology capable of taking your TVs’ audio to the next level – surround sound – wirelessly. DTS Play-Fi Home Theater can finally solve issues most TV owners have been facing for a while now.
Although thin, giant TVs are all the rage now, the sound quality they’re capable of is less than ideal. In the same time, creating a surround sound system at home (with everything it entails – speaker wires, HDMI cables) is a hassle you probably want to avoid.
But great audio requires sacrifices, right?! Not necessarily.
DTS Play-Fi Home Theater is a first-of-its-kind audio solution that can circumvent those issues. It is able to upgrade a TV’s audio performance and help it render surround sound completely wirelessly, in one of four ways:
- Use the TV’s built-in speakers as part of the surround system or upgrade them with a Play-Fi enabled soundbar/ Play-Fi enabled front speakers without any wires in sight
- Add Play-Fi enabled speakers as surround speakers
- Add up to two Play-Fi enabled subwoofers which will give you amazing bass quality
- Use Play-Fi’s complementary functionality, like multi-room grouping of the TV with Play-Fi enabled speakers for music and TV audio, and app-based headphone listening
This, obviously, depends on your configuration and dream setup but either way it saves you some extra money and even helps manufacturers cut back costs.
“We’re thrilled to introduce this latest DTS Play-Fi Home Theater technology to the market,” said Dannie Lau, General Manager DTS Play-Fi. “Consumers no longer need to compromise aesthetics for an improved audio experience. They can attain better sound quality simply by using a wireless subwoofer placed out of sight or build a high-performance home theater using a full complement of wireless speakers and subwoofers.”
By the way, TVs featuring DTS Play-Fi Home Theater will hit the market in the third quarter of 2021. Those will be compatible with the existing DTS Play-Fi devices, from soundbars and speakers, to amplifiers.
If you didn’t know, the DTS Play-Fi ecosystem has the largest collection of products in the whole-home wireless audio space. We’re talking hundreds of interoperable speakers, televisions, soundbars, set-top boxes, and A/V receivers… and not just from one brand, but over 30 leading consumer electronics companies.
Thanks to this protocol, you can actually mix and match the products until you’re satisfied with your home setup.
In other words, you have more freedom than ever to create the audio setup of your dreams at home, surround sound included!
