High-definition audio solutions leader DTS has today announced AirPlay 2 support for select DTS Play-Fi products, including the McIntosh RS200 and Arcam rPlay, with additional products to be announced later this year. According to the press release, all DTS Play-Fi products supporting AirPlay 2 are also compatible with Amazon Alexa.
“We are thrilled to bring AirPlay 2 into the DTS Play-Fi experience,” said Dannie Lau, general manager, DTS Play-Fi. “With this new ability, our partners can better service Apple users with a feature set that meets their expectations for interoperability with the products they love.”
Starting today, owners of compatible DTS Play-Fi products can now use Siri or Alexa voice assistants to control their products. “Integrating these protocols with DTS Play-Fi gives the RS200 a sophisticated set of streaming capabilities unmatched by our competitors,” said Charlie Randall, chief executive officer (CEO) at McIntosh.
“AirPlay 2 brings multi-room music playback to the Apple ecosystem,” said Nicholas Clarke, senior director, global engineering, luxury audio at Harman. “Combining AirPlay 2 with DTS Play-Fi gives Arcam rPlay customers even more ways to access their product while providing the hi-res streaming audio support they demand.”
