How do I set up wireless surround sound using the Definitive Technology app?

The very first thing you want to do is set up each Play-Fi enabled speaker on your wireless network and install any updates that are mentioned during setup. Make sure to name each speaker differently so they are easy to identify later on. 

DO NOT install any Definitive Technology Utility app updates until AFTER the Definitive Technology app has updated the speakers on your network. This ensures proper system function. 

Once the updates are installed, select the the settings wheel on the Definitive Technology app and then select "Surround Sound". 

In the bottom right corner of the screen, click the "+" button to create a new "Surround Sound System". 

The guided app will take you through the full setup by selecting "Next".

Note: This process is the same for all three speaker placements but the Front position must be a compatible Play-Fi sound bar (ex. W Studio Micro). If no compatible sound bars are found, you will not be able to continue. 

Now select "Set Front." 

The app will automatically recognize all compatible sound bars. 

Choose the sound bar that you want to set up, followed by setting the distance of the sound bar from your listening position (to the closest foot). 

Select "Next" to continue. 

Select "Set Surround Left" to choose the left speaker, as well as setting the distance of the speaker to your listening position (to the closest foot). 

Select "Next" to continue. 

Select "Set Surround Right" to choose the right speaker, as well as setting the distance of the speaker to your listening position (to the closest foot). 

Select "Next" to continue. 

Once you have selected all three speakers, select "Done" on the bottom of the Surround Set-Up page. 

The Definitive Technology app will now set up your wireless surround sound system. 

Once your wireless surround sound system is set up and you can select "Done."

Note: Be patient. This process can take some time.
