Wren Play-Fi wireless speaker

Available with rosewood veneer (front) or bamboo wood veneer (rear).

Exceptional sound

The system features two high-performance 3/4" tweeters for clear highs and two 3" drivers for clean midrange and low tones. A bass port in the rear further reinforces the low frequencies. The V5PF's cabinet is made of MDF to minimize unwanted resonance. And the silicone pad on the bottom acts as a cushion to keep the cabinet vibration-free.

Wren's proprietary Digital Signal Processing circuitry ensures accurate signal decoding and lifelike sound reproduction. The system is powered by a built-in 50-watt Class-D amplifier. You'll experience warm, natural sound, whether playing your music at low or high volume levels.

DTS Play-Fi wireless technology

Download the free Wren Play-Fi app and you're ready to use the V5PF. Play-Fi is an innovative Wi-Fi technology developed by the audio experts at DTS that lets you stream high-fidelity music. Play-Fi allows you to send the same song to multiple components and speakers, play a different song in every room, or let each member of the family control speakers independently with their own device. Play-Fi can transmit lossless audio at CD quality to up to 16 speakers or components on your network. And your Wren V5PF can work with Play-Fi speakers from other manufacturers. So you can mix and match different brands of wireless speakers and components, offering more flexibility than closed systems.


Praise for the Wren V5 from inner|fidelity

"I've heard some reasonably good sounding devices of this type in the past... I'd say the Wren is my favorite of the bunch. It sounds great, but more importantly — it looks better in a stylish-yet-not-in-your-face sort of way."

— From John Grandberg's review in inner|fidelity, September 4, 2013

Features

High Performance Drivers & Amplifier: The Wren V5PF employs two 3" long-throw drivers with 4-layer voice coils to handle big power while dissipating heat. High frequencies are rendered smooth and natural by a pair of edge-driven, wide dispersion 0.75" soft dome tweeters optimally positioned on the front baffle to create a wide, realistic soundstage. The drivers are powered by Intersil's D2 Audio DSP-controlled 25 watts x 2 channel digital amplifier. DSP optimization allows you to play your music louder with more bass and less distortion.

Solid Anti-Resonance Bass Reflex Enclosure: The Wren V5PF is made from real wood, with natural bamboo or rosewood finishes instead of painted plastic. Beneath the beautiful bamboo or rosewood veneer is half-inch laminated MDF board that eliminates resonance and coloration. A precisely tuned acoustic rear-firing port extends the low end of the driver to provide power bass performance. The underside of the Wren V5PF is covered with a 4mm low durometer silicone pad that stabilizes the chassis and absorbs cabinet vibration. Wren's unique internal diamond-matrix grille design protects the drivers without distorting the sound.

DTS WiFi w/ Free Play-Fi App: Thanks to its built-in DTS WiFi, the Wren V5PF wireless speaker is compatible with Android smartphones/tablets (OS 2.2+), Apple iOS devices (6.0+), and Windows PCs (7/8/8.1). The free PlayFi-App is required for all devices.

  • Built-in DTS WiFi: The Wren V5PF combines DTS audio and WiFi wireless technology to wirelessly stream high-definition "lossless" audio with no impact on sound quality from the free Wren Play-Fi app on your Android smartphone/tablet, Apple iOS device, Windows PC, or Mac computer to the speaker system. Your WiFi access point or router must be 802.11g/n in order to support one or multiple Android devices; an 802.11B only router may be used, but it will stream to only one device.
  • Free Play-Fi App: You will need to download the free Wren Play-Fi app onto your compatible Android smartphone/tablet, Apple iOS device, or Windows PC in order to access and stream your music content. Music is then streamed directly over your home WiFi network from the Wren Play-Fi App running on your compatible mobile device to the Wren V5PF speaker. The app offers a wide range of built-in streaming options.

Multi-Room Application: You can also use the Play-Fi app on your compatible Android/Kindle device to link multiple Wren V5PF speakers together (up to 8) to create an audio system for your entire home. You can stream to all the speakers at once, or let individual listeners stream different music to different parts of the house.

Aux Input: A 3.5mm auxiliary input lets you connect and play music from other audio sources, such as a portable CD player or MP3 player with an audio output or headphone output jack.

USB Charging Port: The Wren V5PF features a USB (type-A) port used to charge your smartphone or other USB-enabled portable audio device. Simply use the included microUSB-to-USB cable or the cable that came with your device to connect the V5PF's USB port. This USB port does not support audio playback.

Simple Controls: The Wren V5PF provides easy-to-use power, volume, and source buttons on the side-panel of the system. Music navigation and song/artist information will need to be done through your Android mobile device.

External AC Power Supply: The Wren V5PF operates off of standard household current using the supplied AC power adapter and cord.

  • Input: 100-240V ~1.8A, 50-60Hz
  • Output: 18-24V, 3.3-2.5A
