bit-for-bit, lossless audio, for uncompromised quality sound; up to
16-bit/48kHz. DTS Play-Fi has a range of up to 100' from your wireless router.

together, so there's no hassle adding more speakers, or choosing more than
one audio brand like
Wren, etc..) in your home.
Wired or Wireless Network Connection: The Klipsch Gate wireless music adapter uses your home's network for whole-house audio entertainment via DTS
Play-Fi. The Gate connects to your home's network via a wireless (WiFi) or wired
(Ethernet) connection). A dual-band "N" or better router is recommended for the
most reliable wireless network connection.

Android (4.0+) device to the wireless music adapter through the free Klipsch Stream
- Online Music Services: From the DTS Play-Fi app on your
mobile device or computer, you can share and listen to

the online music services are (subscription & purchasing fees may apply).
- Computer Audio: The Klipsch Gate is DLNA compliant for
playback of various music files stored on your Windows PC (7/8) or
DLNA-certified NAS drives connected to your home network. MAC OSX computers
and laptops require third party software to be visible on the network
(Twonky, Plex, Servio etc.) as they do not support DLNA. Use the DTS Play-Fi
app on your mobile device or computer to access these music files.
Supported Music Files: The Klipsch Gate wireless music adapter & DTS
Play-Fi support music formats such as MP3, AAC, FLAC, and WAV. The wireless
music adapter will recognize music files up to 24-bit/192kHz and wirelessly stream
these files at up to 16-bit/48kHz (CD quality sound). Some down-sampling may
occur to ensure virtually lossless distribution throughout a home network.
Critical Listening Mode: For those who wish to hear high
resolution audio as originally intended, Critical Listening mode will enable
native rendering of high resolution files up to 24-bit/96kHz, with no
down-sampling or network synchronization adjustment. In this way, audio files
retain their original audio integrity. Critical Listening Mode is only available
on one DTS Play-Fi device and not supported for multiroom audio distribution.
Multiroom Audio: You can play the same source in each zone
or a different song in each room. Eight separate wireless source devices
(smartphones, tablets, etc.), each with its own source, are supported
simultaneously and any wireless source device can stream to eight DTS Play-Fi
playback devices. Due to the bandwidth limitations of most wireless networks, no
more than 16 wireless DTS Play-Fi products on a single WiFi network at one given
time is recommended. Supported multiroom audio sources include -
- Apple iOS & Android devices with the Klipsch Stream app installed.
- Select DTS Play-Fi online music services and internet radio.
- Music library from your Windows PC or Mac computer (via DLNA).
- Auxiliary analog input.
