DTS' Play-Fi whole-house audio system is now capable of TV audio streaming with synchronized video on select products, the company announced on Tuesday.
Play-Fi has had the ability to stream audio from a 3.5mm-connected device for many years, but this is the first time we've been able to adjust lip-sync within the app. Previously there was a significant lag between audio and video.
The compatible devices include:
- Klipsch Gate receiver and PowerGate amplifier
- Klipsch RSB-14 and RSB-8 sound bar
- Klipsch RW-1 speaker
- Klipsch The Three and The Capitol Three speakers
- McIntosh MB50 streaming audio player
- Paradigm PW LINK preamplifier
- Phorus PS10 speaker
DTS says the update to enable lip-synch is available now, and more partners will incorporate this feature into their Play-Fi-enabled products in 2018.
Play-Fi is one of the main competitors to Sonos and Bose when it comes to multiroom audio, with support from over 20 brands and streaming via services such as Amazon Music, Deezer, iHeartRadio, Pandora, Spotify and Tidal.
