Wren Sound Systems Adds Spotify Streaming Service to Its DTS Play-Fi® Speaker Series
Critically acclaimed wireless speakers add valued features and services long after they’re purchased!
Wren Sound Systems announced today the immediate availability of Spotify for its DTS Play-Fi speakers, the V5PF and the newly launched V5US. The integration of Spotify Connect with DTS Play-Fi® technology will enable Spotify Premium users to instantly see, select and stream to the Wren speakers from within the Spotify app. Subscribers will also be able to immediately launch and use the Spotify service from the Wren app for Android or the Play-Fi apps for iOS and Kindle Fire. Simply choose a speaker, and Spotify Connect will stream crystal-clear lossless audio over Wi-Fi. This feature will be available to new purchasers and to existing Wren customers via a simple app update.
“The addition of Spotify Connect is a huge step forward for Wren and its customers,” said Mike Giffin, Wren’s President and CEO. “Enabling such a highly desired service as Spotify through a simple wireless upgrade really underscores the value of the Play-Fi ecosystem.”
At launch, both speakers will support streaming from Spotify Premium accounts to any one speaker in the user’s Wi-Fi network using Spotify Connect. An extension of this experience to multiple rooms via Play-Fi whole-home technology for Android and iOS users is expected later this year. Users of the DTS Play-Fi HD premium Windows software can enjoy a multi-room, multi-speaker experience on Wren Play-Fi speakers with Spotify’s online streaming service today.
The V5PF and the V5US are part of Wren’s V5 speaker family, which has garnered vast critical claim from both reviewers and consumers nationwide for its superior build quality, sophisticated design, real wood cabinets and great sound. The V5PF, which retails for $299, is the first speaker from an outside company to adopt Play-Fi technology and to work seamlessly in the Play-Fi wireless ecosystem. The Wren V5US, at $499, boasts near-universal device compatibility featuring both Play-Fi and Apple® AirPlay® technologies to enable WiFi streaming from Apple iOS devices, Android devices and PCs running Mac or Windows. The V5US also features Bluetooth wireless technology with CSR aptX. Both speakers are available at www.wrensound.com and at authorized Wren dealers.
