Smart Speaker P3 with Alexa Adds DTS Play-Fi® Technology to Bring Multi-room Music Streaming to Connected Homes

Press Release dated: 31 Aug 2017

Home entertainment specialists Onkyo announce Smart Speaker P3 (VC-PX30), a lifestyle concierge speaker with Amazon Alexa Voice Service designed to express voice and music with immersive hi-fi sound while providing information, entertainment, and the ability to control selected smart devices by voice.

As well as answering questions and delivering information, Alexa skills can read news headlines, provide updates on traffic and weather, read recipes, set reminders, and perform a wide variety of tasks, from ordering pizza to reading audiobooks. Alexa support for leading smart devices will persuade families seeking an intuitive solution for home automation by voice.

Ask Alexa to control smart lights, thermostats, and other compatible smart devices with support for selected WeMo®, Philips Hue, Samsung SmartThings, Nest, and ecobee products. With a few words, users can accomplish tasks quickly without interrupting work or play.

Smart Speaker P3 is also among the first smart speakers to add support for DTS Play-Fi® technology via the free companion Onkyo Music Control App for iPad®, iPhone®, and Android™ phones/tablets. DTS Play-Fi allows high-quality music transmission from connected services such as Amazon Music®, TIDAL, Deezer, and TuneIn, as well as connected media servers and the mobile device library, to any number of compatible products.

Music selection is easy with the companion Onkyo Music Control App. When compatible Play-Fi products are grouped using the app, Smart Speaker P3 plays music to the group simultaneously. Each member of the family can also use their smartphone or tablet to listen to music in their own room or groups of rooms. Furthermore, users can control the DTS Play-Fi system using the Apple Watch® or Android Wear. For more information on DTS Play-Fi, visit

Smart Speaker P3 is designed by expert Onkyo engineers and features dual full-range drivers, dual passive bass radiators, and efficient DSP switching amplification to give richness and body to voice and music. An auxiliary input is included to enable media player, phone, and tablet connection to expand available sources of entertainment. A line output can revitalize a legacy stereo system by adding voice-controlled audio to the living space via a simple wired connection.

Smart Speaker P3 is a game-changing product with potential to greatly improve lifestyles. It is among the first to add high-class sound to AI technology, smoothing the path to home automation and multi-room audio. By virtue of its open ecosystem, customers can follow their preference of supported entertainment component and smart appliance brands while enjoying a wide choice of online entertainment services.
