Phorus Introduces Its Next-Generation PS5 Wireless Home Audio Speaker with DTS Play-Fi Technology

The Phorus PS5 Speaker combines elegant new design and uncompromised sound quality with integrated Play-Fi Technology to stream music from any device or platform over standard Wi-Fi

ENCINO, Calif.--Phorus, a subsidiary of DTS, Inc., introduced today the Phorus PS5 Speaker with DTS Play-Fi technology.


As the first company to bring a DTS Play-Fi enabled speaker to market, Phorus set a new standard in the audio industry by streaming lossless, high-quality audio from iOS, Android and Windows PCs to multiple rooms and from multiple users simultaneously using standard Wi-Fi. Now, the company is once again delivering an impeccable wireless home audio experience at a remarkably affordable price by introducing its next-generation Phorus PS5 Speaker, complete with a new, elegant design and cutting-edge platform compatibility.

"Phorus has always developed products with the music fan in mind. Our products give music fans the easiest way to stream their music at home, from any device to any room, without compromising great sound," said Dannie Lau, general manager of Phorus and the Play-Fi Division of DTS. "We are so pleased to introduce our next-generation Phorus PS5 Speaker and think that once again music fans will be blown away by the features, music services, sound quality, and value."

The Phorus PS5 Speaker: Rich, Powerful Wireless Sound and Total Compatibility

With DTS Play-Fi technology, the Phorus PS5 Speaker streams high-quality audio with lossless accuracy over Wi-Fi, allowing the user to create a whole home audio system with literally just a few touches. Use the elegant, easy-to-use Phorus App for Android, Kindle Fire™ and iOS to set up and control the speaker and enjoy integrated streaming of locally stored music, music from DLNA servers, Internet Radio from around the world (including local AM/FM stations and BBC, WSJ, Radio Disney, and ESPN Radio), and popular music services such as Pandora, SiriusXM, Songza, Deeze, KKBox, QQMusic and more.

Notably, with the DTS Play-Fi HD Driver for Windows, users can stream music from any application on a PC, including Google Musi™, Spotify, and Xbox Music Live, to all the Play-Fi enabled speakers in your home.

In addition to Play-Fi's multi-room, multi-zone and multi-user features, the Phorus PS5 Speaker supports direct streaming via Bluetooth (including AptX and AAC codecs), for Windows phones and other devices, and accepts AirPlay streams from OSX, iTunes, and iOS devices, meaning no one at home will miss out on the convenience of wirelessly streaming music from his or her favorite apps and devices. Wi-Fi streaming is handled by the latest 802.11a/b/g/n radio which supports both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands. The PS5 avoids pesky interference from microwaves, radios, security cameras, and other common household devices for uninterrupted listening.

Featuring premium DTS Sound, the PS5 is custom tuned for peak performance. Renowned DTS post-processing restores rich details, enhances bass and gets maximum volume from your music. An advanced dual-core DSP and Class-D digital amplifiers dynamically deliver incredible sound quality at every level.
