Omni P1 Wireless Music Adapter: The Omni P1 wireless music
adapter is a simple, easy, and fast way to bring wireless audio to your existing
home entertainment system that features a free analog (RCA/Minijack) or digital
Omni Series: The Omni P1 is part of
Polk Audio's Omni Collection, a series of wireless products that allow you
to control what you want to listen to from your smartphone, tablet, or computer
and stream it wirelessly to any room. You can start with one Omni series
wireless product and then add more throughout your home or office.
DTS Play-Fi Wireless Technology: Polk Audio's Omni series
collection of wireless speakers, amplifiers, and adapters employ DTS Play-Fi
wireless technology for wireless sound that is reliable and high-quality. DTS
Play-Fi combines DTS audio and WiFi (802.11 g/n; 2.4/5.0GHz) wireless technology
to wirelessly stream high-definition "lossless" audio with no impact on sound
quality. DTS Play-Fi will stream pure, bit-for-bit, lossless audio, for
uncompromised quality sound; up to 16-bit/48kHz. DTS Play-Fi has a range of up
to 100' from your wireless router.
Note: All DTS Play-Fi enabled products work seamlessly
together, so there's no hassle adding more speakers, or choosing more than
one audio brand (like
Wren, etc..) in your home.
Simple Setup: There are two methods for connecting the DTS
Play-Fi wireless music adapter to your home network. You can perform WiFi setup
via the Polk Omni App on your Apple iOS/Android mobile device or Windows PC
(this setup allows you to connect multiple Play-Fi device at once to your
network). You can also use the WPS button on the preamp if your wireless router
supports WPS (this setup only allows you to connect one Play-Fi device at a time
to your network).
Polk Omni App: Download the free Polk Omni App onto your
Apple iOS (6.0+) device,
Android (2.2+) smartphone/tablet, or
Windows (7/8) PC for easy and
convenient management of your music from your mobile device or computer. From
the app you can initially set up the Omni wireless speaker system, as well as
add, link, and control all your Omni and DTS Play-Fi components. You'll be able
stream music directly from the system's built-in music online services, or music
on your mobile device or PC to multiple Omni series and DTS Play-Fi enabled
products throughout your home. The app lets you browse your music by artist,
album, genre, or title; and provides album art. You can choose to play the same
music in each zone or a different song in each room.
Variety Of Sources: Polk Audio's Omni series wireless
collection supports a variety of music sources.
- Mobile Device (Apple iOS + Android): You are able to
wirelessly stream your music files from your music library on your Apple iOS
(8.0+) or Android (4.0+) device to the Polk Audio Omni wireless music adapter through
the free Polk Omni app.
- Online Music Services: From the DTS Play-Fi app on your
mobile device or computer, you can share and listen to
Napster, and Internet Radio. While the DTS Play-Fi app is free, not all
the online music services are (subscription & purchasing fees may apply).
- Computer Audio: The Polk Audio Omni series wireless
system is DLNA compliant for playback of various music files stored on your
Windows PC (7/8) or DLNA-certified NAS drives connected to your home
network. MAC OSX computers and laptops require third party software to be
visible on the network (Twonky, Plex, Servio etc.) as they do not support
DLNA. Use the free Polk Omni app on your mobile device or computer to access
these music files.
Supported Music Files: The Polk Audio Omni series wireless
system and DTS Play-Fi support music formats such as MP3, AAC, FLAC, and WAV.
The system will recognize music files up to 24-bit/192kHz and wirelessly stream
these files at up to 16-bit/48kHz (CD quality sound). Some down-sampling may
occur to ensure virtually lossless distribution throughout a home network.
Critical Listening Mode: For those who wish to hear high
resolution audio as originally intended, Critical Listening mode will enable
native rendering of high resolution files up to 24-bit/96kHz, with no
down-sampling or network synchronization adjustment. In this way, audio files
retain their original audio integrity. Critical Listening Mode is only available
on one DTS Play-Fi device and not supported for multiroom audio distribution.
Maximum Number of Rooms/Zones Supported: You can play the
same source in each zone or a different song in each room. Eight separate
wireless source devices (smartphones, tablets, etc.), each with its own source,
are supported simultaneously and any wireless source device can stream to eight
DTS Play-Fi playback devices. Due to the bandwidth limitations of most wireless
networks, no more than 16 wireless DTS Play-Fi products on a single WiFi network
at one given time is recommended.
Digital + Analog Outputs: The Polk Omni P1 wireless music adapter is
equipped with two digital inputs and one analog input to connect to your
existing home entertainment system. There is one optical (toslink) digital input
and one coaxial (RCA) digital input that will accept up to 2ch PCM audio (not
Dolby Digital/DTS). There is also one stereo RCA analog input.
Aux Input: A 3.5mm auxiliary input lets you connect and play
music from other audio sources, such as a portable CD player or MP3 player with
an audio output or headphone output jack. This input can only be played back at
the P1 location and cannot be used for a multiroom application.
AC Power: The Polk Omni P1 wireless music adapter operates off of
standard household current using the supplied AC power adapter.
