Definitive Technology announced its Wireless Music System, equipped with DTS’ Play-Fi technology for delivering audiophile-grade music anywhere or everywhere in the home over Wi-Fi. The new collection will allow listeners to stream and control music from smartphones, tablets or a PC wirelessly throughout the home, without loss of optimal audio performance.
Definitive Technology’s Wireless Music System is comprised of the W7 Wireless Speaker, the W9 Wireless Speaker, the W Studio Sound Bar with included Subwoofer, the W Adapt and the W Amp.
The Wireless Collection transforms any area of the home into the ultimate listening room with its offering of beautifully designed modern and sophisticated audio offerings. Once the wireless music system is easily set up and connected to a Wi-Fi network, listeners are able to control all of their music from a phone, tablet or PC using Definitive Technology’s dedicated Play-Fi app, compatible with Android and Apple iOS systems. Through the app, music aficionados can stream music from popular music services, including Pandora and Spotify, countless Internet radio stations or a personal music collection while browsing and discovering new content. Additionally, with Play-Fi’s open platform design, users are easily able to mix-and-match any Play-Fi-enabled audio product from any manufacturer on the same home network, providing them the freedom to grow and personalize their wireless home music setup any way they choose.
- W7 Wireless Speaker ($399) – The W7 is Definitive Technology’s ultra-compact wireless speaker designed for the listener who is unwilling to compromise on performance, even in smaller living spaces.
- W9 Wireless Speaker ($699) – The W9 was built for audio aficionados seeking the ultimate audio performance. Due to the additional transducers and larger cabinet size, the W9 delivers exceptional dynamic range and extraordinary bass response, even in larger rooms. The “Tri-Polar” dispersion pattern sends sound in three directions for exhilarating sound that fills the room.
- W Studio Sound Bar with included Subwoofer ($1,299) – A wireless sound bar with accompanying 8-inch wireless subwoofer blends high-performance 5.1 theater sound with high-resolution musical reproduction, ideal for family rooms and home theaters. The sound bar’s slim design—at only 3.5 inches deep—is complemented by its sleek, contemporary finish with solid aluminum end caps and has HDMI switching for both audio and video purposes. It also uses Definitive Technology’s proprietary Spatial Array technology that engulfs listeners in lifelike surround sound without the clutter of five separate speakers. Lastly, the system is made even more impactful due to the rich bass produced by the downward firing subwoofer.
- W Adapt ($399) – The W Adapt transforms existing audio systems to include the latest music streaming services. The wireless adaptor connects seamlessly with nearly any home theater receiver using the latest digital and analog connections. Hookups include an auxiliary input to connect to a Blu-ray and DVD player or cable/satellite box, as well as digital outputs for connecting to a receiver and an optical input for hooking up to a TV and other devices. Additionally W Adapt comes with an accompanying rack-mount kit for pre-engineered rack systems.
- W Amp ($499) – The W Amp is a wireless streaming amplifier that delivers an audiophile grade signal to your favorite loudspeaker with 150 watts of power per channel. When paired with Definitive Technology loudspeakers, the amplifier’s EQ settings can be fully customized by accessing its Utility App. Similar to the W Adapt, audio enthusiasts will appreciate its included rack-mount kit for pre-engineered rack systems, as well as its line level Subwoofer output, and Left and Right channel line level inputs and outputs.
