You’re up for snacks, a bathroom break or just a change of scenery during the Super Bowl, and you don’t want to miss any of the action. DTS offers an easy way to always hear the commentary, via a feature than enables whole-home TV audio streaming. The capability can be found in select sound bars and all-in-one speakers, which through a free software update lets you broadcast audio from any connected source, such as a TV, to other DTS Play-Fi speakers in the home.
The new whole-home TV audio feature synchronizes speakers to each other and to the video source, creating lip-synch accurate multi-room playback without an echo. The update is currently available for the following DTS Play-Fi-enabled products:
- Klipsch Gate receiver
- Klipsch PowerGate amplifier
- Klipsch RSB-8 sound bar
- Klipsch RSB-14 sound bar
- Klipsch RW-1 speaker

“We are excited to add whole-home TV audio streaming to the DTS Play-Fi ecosystem, allowing consumers to broadcast audio from their TV to other speakers without an echo or compromised video synchronization,” says Dannie Lau, general manager, DTS Play-Fi, at Xperi. “Whether you’re hosting a big game watch party, or just listening to your favorite show while cooking, DTS Play-Fi provides a no-compromise whole-home experience for TV listening. Additional DTS Play-Fi partners will incorporate the technology into their DTS Play-Fi enabled products this year, giving consumers even more flexibility when selecting their home theater products.”
