DTS Play-Fi gets Alexa Cast, to make posh streamer speakers better

By reviews / 3. September 2018

The DTS Play-Fi platform has incorporated Alexa Cast support, a handy addition for streamers like the Pioneer F4, Arcam rPlay and McIntosh MB50.

Alexa Cast is a little like Google audio Casting. You use it to wirelessly send music from a source to a speaker. But Alexa Cast is specifically made for the Amazon Music app.

As Alexa Cast uses adirect cloud connection”, youll also be able to control music when your phones out of range of your home network. Thats pretty neat.

Its now available in the DTS Play-Fi platform.

This is good news if your choice of streaming service is as off-kilter as your choice of streamer hardware. DTS Play-Fi tends to be used in higher-end audio gear from brands the average Currys window shopper may not have heard of before.

Speakers and streamer boxes that benefit from this upgrade include the Polk Omni SB1+ soundbar, the McIntosh RS100 speaker and the Klipsch Gate music streamer.

Owners of these somewhat niche speaker may never even use Alexa Cast, given DTS Play-Fi already supports Spotify, Deezer and Tidal. However, its good to see a slightly smaller platform in the streamer scene keep up to date with the tech.
