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
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.
Built-in DTS WiFi: Thanks to its built-in DTS WiFi,
the Wren V5PF wireless speaker is compatible with virtually any Android device
(including Kindle Fire) using Android version 2.2 and later. 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 or Kindle device 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 steam to only one
Free Play-Fi App (for Android/Kindle): You will need to download the
free Wren Play-Fi app from the
Google Play Store or
Amazon App Store onto your compatible Android or Kindle device 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; listen to Pandora, play anything from your Android/Kindle
music library, enjoy songs from DLNA-compliant servers on your home network, or
choose among thousands of AM/FM/Internet Radio stations and podcasts (ESPN,
Radio Disney, BBC to name a few).
Multi-Room Application: You can also use the Play-Fi app
on your compatible Android/Kindle device to link multiple Wren V5PF speakers
together 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.
