DTS Play-Fi Wireless Audio Systems Now Stream Web Radio

Radio used to be the main source of music. However, there were always a lot of factors involved. You needed a good radio and just the right positioning. Also, if you didn't tune that dial just right, you'd be rocking out to an awful lot of static.

Well now the web offers an endless amount of radio stations -- and Phorus is giving them to you, without the need for all of those tweaks. The subsidiary of DTS just announced that its Play-Fi home audio system now offers web radio, all without wires. This is in addition to the FM and AM options, as well as Pandora.

Play-Fi delivers access to thousands of web radio stations from all around the world. This means that you can tap into NPR, ESPN Radio, Radio Disney, Voice of America, Fox News Radio and much more, right from any Android smartphone or tablet. From there, you can stream the content to the Phorus PS1 Speaker and PR1 Receiver.

Existing users can get the new goodies via an automatic update on on the company's free Play-Fi app. Naturally, new customers will experience the new features right away.

Back in October, Phorus debuted the DTS Play-Fi-enabled PS1 Speaker, PR1 Receiver, and compatible app as the first wireless home audio system built from the ground up for Android devices. Our own Ian White took a peek at the PS1 and said, "If affordable wireless multi-room audio appeals to you, the Phorus PS1 is a must listen." [For more information, read his entire Phorus PS1 Speaker Review.

Phorus also just announced plans to launch support for Windows PCs and iOS devices. That option should be available sometime later this year.

In the meantime, the Phorus PS1 Speaker and Phorus PR1 Receiver are both available now for $199 and $149, respectively. The Phorus Play-Fi is available for free in the Google Play store and in the Amazon App Marketplace.

The Phorus PS1 plays music from the web or your music library, using an Android phone or tablet.

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

2019 BMW i8 Review

The 2019 BMW i8 is a head-turner for its looks, which hides its plug-in powertrain. That’s good or bad, depending on your priorities.Even among six-figure cars with two doors, the 2019 BMW i8 steals stares. That could be because of the dramatic wing doors and futuristic shape, its laser headlights at night, or the 2019 i8’s silent propulsion for up to 18 miles.
Or it may steal attention because, even after more than four years on sale, it’s a very rare sight.

Apple iPhone XR Review

If you aren't sure you are ready to leave the Home button behind and embrace Face ID, think again. We'll tell you why the iPhone XR is worth the sacrifice - especially because it's just as good (if not better than) the iPhone XS. Find out more in out full review.
Should I Buy The Apple iPhone XR?
The iPhone XR brings Face ID to the masses. We’re sure people will continue to rebel against the lack of Home button, but eventually we expect them to come round and embrace the larger screen, Portrait mode (front and back), animoji and memoji.We have no doubt that this will be a popular iPhone and it deserves to be. The only question is why would anyone buy an iPhone XS when the iPhone XR is just as powerful and has a bigger screen.

Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.
