Stream Music with AirPlay
Think of a tune, then play it – instantly. Apple’s AirPlay wirelessly streams high-quality lossless audio or MP3s from iPhone®, iPad® or iPod touch® straight to your soundbar. And from iTunes on a Mac or PC too. You control your music, wherever you are, via your device. It’s time to set your music free.
Whole-House Music Streaming
DTS Play-Fi technology gives you the freedom and flexibility to stream high-resolution music (up to 24- bit/192kHz) wirelessly over an existing Wi-Fi network. Unlike many other wireless platforms, DTS Play-Fi is an open platform, allowing you to mix and match any DTS Play-Fi-enabled audio products from other top audio brands into your ecosystem. Take advantage of endless choices, from your own music library to online music streaming services*, and stream music from virtually any device – Android, iOS, Kindle Fire or PC.
Works with Alexa
MartinLogan DTS Play-Fi products now have “Works with Alexa” certification, meaning they can be controlled using voice commands given to an Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Show, Fire TV Cube, or other Alexa voice command-enabled device. Alexa functionality is activated by using the Alexa app to enable the DTS Play-Fi skill. This links your Alexa account to “Works with Alexa” DTS Play-Fi compatible products like this one.
After installing the skill, Alexa will know your speaker by name and allow you to control volume and playback functions such as track skip, mute, pause, and stop or request a song to play in a specific room or group of rooms linked together. Once an Alexa voice command is used to start audio playback, the DTS Play-Fi app can be used to dynamically add more products to the streaming session. Additionally, Alexa’s Routines feature can be used to create events that initiate audio playback on your DTS Play-Fi speaker, such as setting up your speaker to work as an alarm clock by starting your favourite song.
