The Paradigm PW 800 powered speaker not only gives you easy wireless access to a wide range of music, but it can also adapt itself to the room you put it in. DTS Play-Fi lets you play music wirelessly from your phone, tablet, or PC and stream tunes from Internet-based services like Spotify®, Pandora®, and SiriusXM. You can also add compatible DTS Play-Fi speakers and components to other rooms for an easy-to-use whole-home audio system. Plus, the PW 800 tunes itself for optimum performance— even in rooms that aren't ideal for sound.
Infinite variety, app-controlled convenience, no wires: the benefits of whole-home Wi-Fi audio streaming are obvious. We all want instant, easy access to our digital audio library, anywhere in our home.
To achieve this, Paradigm audio engineers faced a classic dilemma: convenience vs performance. Maybe you’ve experienced this dilemma, also, when considering a “wireless” speaker for your pool deck or office desk.
Paradigm audio engineers decided that, when it comes to wireless streaming audio, convenience isn’t convenient if it sacrifices performance. So Paradigm has engineered a wireless streaming audio series that performs...like Paradigm.
Paradigm’s Premium Wireless Series is the only wireless streaming system to feature reference-level performance. It combines our innovative loudspeaker and amplifier engineering with state-of-the-art DTS Play-Fi® wireless streaming technology. Finally, you can experience the freedom of wireless audio streaming with bold, dynamic performance.
Audio optimized for any space
Paradigm’s Premium Wireless Series products all feature exclusive Anthem Room Correction (ARC™) Technology. ARC uses an exclusive Calibration Microphone and advanced DSP algorithms to quickly and easily optimize speaker performance in any space. In just a few easy steps the microphone measures sound output, compares it to scientifically optimal response curves, and instantly adjusts your wireless speaker’s output for perfect sound.
Setup and control Play-Fi on your phone, tablet, or laptop
The PW 800 connects to your home network via dual-band Wi-Fi®, reducing drop-outs and interference. Download the free DTS Play-Fi app and you're ready to use the speaker in mere minutes. It's available for Android™, iOS®, and Kindle Fire, along with Windows® PC operating systems. Use the app to select music, control playback, and adjust volume.
Mix and match speakers in other rooms
With Play-Fi, you can create a simple yet flexible multi-room audio system. Play-Fi allows you to send the same song to multiple components and speakers or play a different song in every room. Family members can even control speakers independently with their own device.
Best of all, the Paradigm PW 800 can work with other Play-Fi devices from other manufacturers. That means you can mix and match different brands of wireless speakers and components, offering more flexibility than other closed systems.
