Phorus has launched its Phorus PS5 Speaker with DTS Play-Fi technology. Their new wireless home audio experience comes at an affordable price point, complete with a new, elegant design, and cutting-edge platform compatibility.
Consumers can get a first glimpse of the Phorus PS5 Speaker in action in the new music video “Monsters Calling Home” from popular Nettwerk Music Group recording artist Run River North.
“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.”
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. The Phorus App for Android, Kindle Fire, and iOS was set up to control the speaker and integrate 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, Deezer, KKBox, QQMusic, and more. The DTS Play-Fi HD Driver for Windows also accesses Google Music, Spotify, and Xbox Music Live.
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.
Consumers can get a first glimpse of the Phorus PS5 Speaker in action in the new music video “Monsters Calling Home” from popular Nettwerk Music Group recording artist Run River North.
