When using the Phorus app, which is powered by Play-Fi, it streams audio directly from source devices to the speakers and supports a wide variety of streaming formats and audio quality levels.
Supported File Formats
- .mp3 (MPEG Layer III)
- .m4a and .aac (Advanced Audio Coding)
- .flac (Free Lossless Audio Codec)
- .wav (Waveform Audio File)
- Up to 24-bit/192kHz. (High resolution)
Files up to 16-bit/48 kHz (CD Quality) are streamed with bit-for-bit accuracy, with zero compression or transcoding. With high resolution files, Play-Fi down-samples the audio to CD quality (16-bit/48kHz) for transmission. This allows for the most reliable streaming experience over Wi-Fi to multiple speakers.
