DTS and Wren Sound Systems collaborated to introduce the Wren V5PF, the first speaker to utilize DTS Play-Fi wireless technology, which allows users to stream HD-quality audio from connected devices over Wi-Fi, with no compression or deterioration in quality.
“DTS Play-Fi was developed to bring high-quality audio back to the home,” said Brian Towne, executive vice president and chief operating officer, DTS. “This speaker system’s state-of-the-art components and sophisticated acoustic design are able to take full advantage of DTS Play-Fi’s ability to transmit HD-quality lossless audio, and reproduce audio so true to the original source material that even purists will be impressed.”
DTS Play-Fi wireless technology enables the delivery of Hi-Fi home audio over standard Wi-Fi networks directly from devices that use a Play-Fi app or software driver. The technology can be easily incorporated into speakers, soundbars, AVRs and other playback devices, as well as into phones, tablets, PCs and other audio sources.
The benefits of DTS Play-Fi include:
- Quality Sound Experience – DTS Play-Fi wirelessly transmits high-definition “lossless” audio, with no impact on sound quality.
- Multi-Room Listening Experience – Connect as many as eight different audio systems to one network and enjoy music and audio in every room of your home or office, perfectly synchronized with no lag. Or you can stream different songs to different rooms via different mobile devices.
- Connectivity Range – DTS Play-Fi-enabled mobile devices connect wirelessly to playback systems via a standard wireless home network, enabling DTS Play-Fi connectivity anywhere within the home.
- DTS Play-Fi Mobile App – The DTS Play-Fi Mobile App turns any connected device into an audio control center, allowing you to enjoy stored or cloud-based audio content over DTS Play-Fi- enabled audio systems.
The V5PF features cutting-edge audio technology and real bamboo or rosewood veneers, brought together by classic audio know-how and old-school build quality. The result is a wireless, tabletop speaker that delivers rich, room-filling sound and superior ease of use in a refined, elegant package.

The Wren V5PF will be available in early 2013 for $399. The companion Wren Play-Fi App will be free and available on the Google Play Store and the Amazon Marketplace.
