Play-Fi systems receive Android, iOS enhancements
Phorus, Polk Audio, Definitive Technology and Wren all announced that Android-based users can now stream Rhapsody and Rdio over Wi-Fi to Play-Fi speakers. iOS capability "will be available later," said Phorus.
"In other DTS Play-Fi news, iOS devices can now support high-resolution audio up to 24 bit/192 kHz using the following formats: WAV, FLAC, and ALAC. Because Play-Fi already supports high-res audio, iTunes customers can now enjoy their music in crystal-clear, lossless sound throughout the home," said the companies.
The four speaker companies are the only ones that currently support the Play-Fi whole-home wireless audio technology, which was created by DTS.
