Start with one, then add throughout your home

  • 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 Studio 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 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, Definitive Technology has a hard time believing that good enough is acceptable. It has to be flawless. Perfect. Uncompromising. In short, they think it would be crazy to give music anything less than everything it deserves.

I bought this on 12/24. I have it in the living room along with two W7s paired as a stereo in the rear. I absolutely love the sound of music with the pairing. My only desire is for them to update PlayFi so that the soundbar can utilize the W7 stereo pair as rear speakers for true 5.1 surround for movies as well as music. The mids, lows, and highs are well balanced. I've heard sounds in movies that I've never heard before. Most of the app bugs in the earlier reviews seem to have been resolved. I did notice one bug where the music gets louder upon opening the camera app but that should be easily fixable in a software update.

Love the flexibility!
We bought this 9 months ago but due to home building weather delays have only been using it for 5 months. It's great. The fact that you can wire components into AND out of this soundbar has worked out well for us. THree of our components go straight to the soundbar, and from them with an optical cable into the TV. One HDMI goes from the receiver and then down to the soundbar. With the multiple input/output choices and with our 2 zone receiver, we are also able to control whether the input comes out of the soundbar OR the built-in ceiling speakers.

It gives a good sound and the wireless subwoofer (because it only needs power) can be placed anywhere near an electrical outlet--it doesn't also need its own wiriting for sound.

Great system and even better customer service
I've owned my W Studio Sound Bar since Nov (6 months) and it has been great. It is easy to setup with minimal wires. It sounds great and is easy to use. I did have an issue with the sub woofer where it stopped working but I had the best technical support service I have ever had - hands down with any product I have ever purchased anywhere. The customer support line is posted on their website and there is not a 50 deep automated menu. Two menus in and you have a person who speaks clear English and listens and cares about your issue. A company that stands behind its product. Super pleased with my purchase and I would recommend this brand to anyone. I also bought a individual wireless Definitive speaker when I bought the sound bar and I use it in my room. I love that speaker too. I sometimes move it out to my garage when I'm working outside.

Great sound and Better Customer Service
Had an issue with a previously purchased DT soundbar and dealt easily with customer service to sort it out. The final verdict was to just replace it and I was amazed at the new W Studio they sent me! Incredible sound, easy set up and found wifi with no issues. I cant say enough about how well these people treated me in a quick and professional manner and to top it off offer a fantastic product. Pretty sure I see a couple of W9's in my near future!

Very good sound
Was the perfect solution for a great TV sound system not wanting to wire all the livingroom. The sound is broad and fills the room although it is big. Operates easily and looks great on our new renovated apartment. I had experience with the SM55 and the Promonitor 800 and knew that this was going to be a good choice. We are very happy.

Good sound
Purchased this mid-year 2015 and found set-up to be pretty easy. Sound quality is good and I have been using the Play-Fi capability (along with other Play-Fi enabled Def Tech speakers in other rooms).
