April 23 2015, 03:10
Wren Sound Systems continues to build on its reputation in the high-end wireless speaker market with the release of its Wren V5US, the first wireless speaker to combine officially certified versions of Apple AirPlay, DTS Play-Fi and aptX Bluetooth. The V5US embodies Wren’s beautifully minimalist design that sets a new standard for superior build quality, genuine wood cabinetry, and elegant simplicity in wireless audio.

The Wren V5US boasts near-universal device compatibility featuring both AirPlay and Play-Fi technologies to enable WiFi streaming from Apple iOS devices, Android devices and PCs running Mac or Windows. For the first time, every household member can wirelessly transmit lossless audio from a wide range of smartphones, tablets and PCs with no impact on sound quality. 

Users can also connect up to eight different Wren speakers to one network, and enjoy perfectly synchronized music in multiple locations throughout their home or office. The V5US allows listeners to stream music to different zones from a single device as well as allowing multiple users to stream different songs to different rooms via separate mobile devices.

The combination of DTS Play-Fi and Apple AirPlay in a single speaker opens lossless WiFi streaming to a broad array of popular smart devices. Play-Fi works with smartphones and tablets running Android 2.2 and later, PCs running Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 and Apple iOS devices (iOS 6.0 and later) with the Play-Fi iOS app. AirPlay works with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch with iOS 4.3.3 or later, Mac with OS X Mountain Lion or later and Mac and PC with iTunes 10.2.2 or later. For other smart devices, the V5US offers Bluetooth with CSR aptX.

Wren’s President and CEO, Mike Giffin, has leaned on over 35 years of high-end audio experience to spearhead Wren towards the market’s forefront. “At Wren, we believe that great audio performance and great design go hand-in-hand,” Giffin said. “In a world of plastic speakers, Wren offers a genuine alternative for those who prefer real wood with rich finishes, subtle curves and sophisticated styling. You’re going to live with it, so we think you should enjoy looking at it.”
