W Adapt Features:

Start with one, then add throughout your home with Play-Fi

  • Play-Fi is the wireless streaming technology that brings all the music from your mobile device to your speakers at home. You can finally enjoy your music out loud, with family and friends, in every room of your house. Play-Fi allows you to send the same song to multiple speakers, play a different song in every room, or control speakers independently with individual devices (perfect for a family with different musical tastes!). Use the Play-Fi app to set up, link and control speakers around the house. Stream your own content, or choose from a variety of leading global music services. Play-Fi can transmit lossless audio at CD quality to up to 16 speakers or components on your network. Play-Fi also lets your W Adapt work with other Play-Fi speakers from other manufacturers so you can easily mix and match different wireless speaker brands. It’s all at your fingertips. 

Definitive Technology Apps

  • The free Definitive Technology App allows you to mix-and-match speakers with the open PlayFi™ Technology standard and future-proof your home music solution. The Definitive Technology Utility App provides extended functionality, including product firmware updates, source selection (if applicable) and EQ settings for the W Amp.

What Obsession Sounds Like

  • There’s a fine line between loving music and being obsessed with it. When it comes to making music sound the best it can sound, we have a hard time believing that good enough is acceptable. It has to be flawless. Perfect. Uncompromising. In short, we think it would be crazy to give music anything less than everything it deserves.

I enjoyed the W9 I purchased for my master bedroom so much that I purchased another for the master bedroom in my vacation home. The set-up is simple, the sound quality is incredible, and the look blends in well. I am using Spotify on my iPhone and iPad as a source, and am really satisfied with its reliability and ease of use with the W9s, and alone with earbuds on the beach and during airplane flights.

So, I decided to try the W Adapt as a means to use wireless technology and Spotify with the existing stereo system in my great room. I couldn't be more happy with this product. It literally took me 5 minutes to set up the W Adapt after opening the box. Definitive even supplied a variety of cables, including an optical cable, which worked well with my receiver. I now enjoy the same ease of use as with my W9s, but am able to listen to Spotify with the full capabilities of my receiver and speakers, and control it all from my iPad.

I am now thinking of a couple of W7s for other rooms in my home!

I never write reviews on products that I purchase but feel compelled to pass on my experience with the W Adapt. I installed mine on a B& K preamp and Sansui BA5000 power amp. Playing Spotify through the W Adapt sounds as clean as a good CD player. The sound stage is wide and life like. I have always been disappointed in the sound of steamed music, but I am a believer in the W Adapt. I would have to assume that the components must be top notch to produce such exceptional results. I now have the ultimate system in both convenience and sound. I couldn’t be happier. I plan on buying a spare W Adapt just in case something happens to mine.
