Crystal-clear, room-filling sound
5 speakers powered by 5 dedicated digital amplifiers
The PLAY:5 uses 5 state-of the-art digital amplifiers individually coupled with 5 speakers to deliver superior sound to any room. The wireless music system provides crystal-clear, high-quality sound that rivals much larger, more complicated systems. A subwoofer produces powerful bass while two mid-range drivers and two tweeters fill out the sound.
State of the art, great sounding amplifiers that are light weight, powerful and very energy efficient in standby and use.
2 tweeters create a crisp and accurate high frequency response.
2 dedicated mid-range drivers ensure the faithful reproduction of mid-range frequencies crucial for accurate playback of vocals and instruments.
Dedicated subwoofer driver provides deep, powerful bass you can feel.
All-digital sound architecture
From the recording studio to your home the music is reproduced as the artist intended. All filter settings, active equalization, and time-alignment are done in the digital domain through state-of-the-art DSP circuitry so there’s absolutely no loss of audio quality or energy.
The acoustic port on the rear of the unit serves two purposes – it’s vital to the sound output of the PLAY:5 when in use and it’s also a convenient handle when moving it from one room to another.
Adjustable bass and treble controls
Optimize sound performance using room-specific bass, treble, balance, and loudness controls. Adjust volume by individual room or by groups of rooms
