Will the V3US/V3USP be compatible with AirPlay 2?

We are currently gathering information to determine if the V3US can support the new functionality of AirPlay 2.  For now, we have been informed that everything you can do today with AirPlay on the V3US will continue to be supported by AirPlay 2. However, AirPlay is an Apple technology and ultimately the compatibility is in Apple’s control. We will notify all registered owners of Wren AirPlay products when we have further news.

My speaker emits a persistent high-pitch tone when connected via Play-Fi.

This tone is caused by a bug found in a recent release of the DTS Play-Fi app. More information and an update that eliminates this problem can be found on the DTS Play-Fi website. NOTE that this bug is not found in the Wren-branded Play-Fi app for Android and Kindle or the DTS Play-Fi app for Windows.

I am unable to connect my Wren V3US to my network.

Possible solutions:

1. Verify that your WiFi network is functioning.

2. The WiFi signal may be weak or the Wren V3US may be out of range of your WiFi network. Move the Wren V3US closer to your network access point.

3. Reset the Wren V3US Hardware:

  • Unplug the power supply from the rear of the speaker.
  • Wait 15 seconds, then plug in power supply and turn on the speaker.

4. Verify that you have selected the WiFi source on the speaker before trying to set up your network connection.

If you cannot troubleshoot your problem using these steps, please contact our technical support team.

The Play-Fi App cannot find the Play-Fi devices.

Possible solutions:

Verify that the following are true:

1. Play-Fi devices are fully powered on and in Discovery Mode.

2. You are within the recommended range of your router.

3. Your source device has its WiFi enabled.

4. There are no other source apps on your device that are currently running that are impeding WiFi connectivity.

  • If you still can’t find the Play-Fi device, and are in an office environment, verify with your network administrator that no special permissions are enabled that would prevent external wireless devices from broadcasting within the network.
  • If the speaker remains unfound, perform a factory reset on the offending unit, restart your source device and re-download the Play-Fi App.

If you cannot troubleshoot your problem using these steps, please contact our technical support team.

The Play-Fi App says “Play-Fi Devices Lost.”

Possible solutions:

If you see this message, it could mean one or more things:

  • The connection to your network is very weak
  • There is heavy network traffic.
  • You’ve moved out of your personal network’s coverage range.
  • You have lost your network connection.
  • You have connected to a network other than the one your Play-Fi device(s) are on.
  • Your source device’s WiFi has been taken over by another app.
  • Your device lost power in the middle of communication.

Make sure the following are true:

  • Verify that your network setting and that your devices are connected to the same network.
  • Ensure that your source device has not left the range of your router.
  • Verify that your source device is on the same network as your speakers.

Finally, exit and then restart the Play-Fi App. It should now find all of your devices.

If you are still unable to find the Play-Fi device(s), reset the speaker by unplugging and plugging it back in.
