File Quality:
• Lossless file reproduction up to 16-bit/48kHz
(CD Quality) and proper file handling for full compatibility
with all high-resolution music up to 24bit/192k.
• Plays all format bitrates [kbps]. DTS Play-Fi transmits
high-resolution files, but it does down-sample them so that
they can be distributed throughout a home.
Software Updates
In the spirit of improving the performance and functionality of
your system, software updates will be required from time to time.
To download those updates, we highly encourage you to register
your Polk product during the setup process. On the home page
of the app, scroll down to "Preferred Services" and follow the
listed instructions.
Basic Troubleshooting
Under "Settings" on the Omni App home page, you will find a
category called Troubleshooting. This link will take you to the DTS
Play-Fi Knowledge Base Note
that quite often an issue can be traced back to router or network
performance. As always, for help answering any of your questions,
please call the Polk Preferred Services @ 1-800-638-7276.
Important Note: Router speeds and ranges that a manufacturer
lists are determined under ideal operating conditions. A router's
signal can be affected by walls and their construction materials.

Sound bar system over time.
