Omni S2 Rechargeable Wireless Speaker: The Omni S2R is a compact
wireless speaker that lets you put Polk's widely respected signature sound in
any room of your home, or outside on the porch, patio, or deck. The Polk Audio Omni S2R uses two 2" full-range
drivers powered by a two-channel Class D amplifier, while the two 2" passive radiators
create a fuller bass response. The Polk Omni S2R features a rugged
ABS cabinet that is weather resistant for the casual outdoor use. Infrequent
and/or accidental rain and sun exposure should not harm the speaker.
Omni Series: The Omni S2R 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 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
speaker 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 speaker 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
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 speakers. 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 speakers through
out 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
speaker collection supports a variety of music sources.
Supported Music Files:
- 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 speaker system 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.
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 speaker 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.
Stereo Pair: The Polk Omni app lets you link two Polk Omni
S2R speakers together to create a stereo image with discrete left and right
speakers. This is perfect for larger spaces or for the enthusiast who wants a
stereo image. After you setup a stereo pair, the two Polk Omni S2R speakers will
show up as one "Speaker" under the speaker tab of the Polk Omni app.
Wireless Surround: You can use a pair of the Polk Omni S2R
wireless speakers as rear surround speakers for the Omni SB1 Plus soundbar
speaker system. Simply update the speakers' firmware using the Polk Audio
Utility app (for
Android), followed by a single update to the DTS Play-Fi software using this
same app. Once updated, setup is simple and can be completed in minutes. It is
highly recommended that the wireless rear surround speakers be placed on the
5GHz band of a dual band AC router.
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 speaker location and cannot be used for a multiroom application.
Rechargeable Battery: The Polk Omni S2R uses a lithium-ion
rechargeable battery which can last up to 10 hours on a full charge at moderate
listening levels. The included AC power adapter charges the built-in battery and
can be used to power the wireless speaker.
Mounting Options: The Omni S2R can sit horizontally or vertically
on a table-top.
