Pioneer rolls out firmware update for dts play-fi®, delivering seamless multi-room audio streaming in high fidelity

August 01, 2017

Pioneer & Onkyo Europe GmbH activates DTS Play-Fi® wireless multi-room audio technology on its MRX-5, and MRX-3 Wireless Speaker with a firmware update available today (August 1, 2017). An update for select 2017-model Pioneer products, as well as 2016-model components listed below, is due by serially end of September.

DTS Play-Fi technology integrates with a variety of smartphones, and tablets, and allows listeners to wirelessly stream music over the home Wi-Fi® network to an unlimited number of DTS Play-Fi-compatible speakers.

The Pioneer Music Control application features a bright and friendly interface for simple control of streaming music from an iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Android™ device, and offers access to popular streaming services. DTS Play-Fi can also locate, display, and stream music stored on media server or selected cloud-based services, as well as music stored on the device.

DTS Play-Fi synchronizes playback of a single source on multiple speakers in rooms around the home without need of a bridging device, and can stream different sources to different speakers simultaneously from the same mobile device. The technology also supports individual music streams to separate speakers from unique devices at the same time. Learn more at www.play-fi.com.
