LAS VEGAS -- January 8, 2013

DTS, Inc. (Nasdaq: DTSI), a leader in high-definition audio solutions, and
Wren Sound Systems, makers of high-end wireless speakers for smartphones,
tablets and computers, today announced a collaboration to deliver the Wren
V5PF, the first third-party speaker to utilize DTS Play-Fi™ wireless

Part of Wren Sound System’s V5 line of wireless speakers, the V5PF featuring
Play-Fi allows users to stream HD-quality audio from connected devices over
Wi-Fi, with no compression or deterioration in quality.

“DTS Play-Fi was developed to bring high-quality audio back to the home,” said
Brian Towne, executive vice president and chief operating officer, DTS. “The
Wren V5PF is a prime example of the vision we had for DTS Play-Fi. This
speaker system’s state-of-the-art components and sophisticated acoustic design
are able to take full advantage of DTS Play-Fi’s ability to transmit
HD-quality lossless audio, and reproduce audio so true to the original source
material that even purists will be impressed.”

DTS Play-Fi wireless technology enables the delivery of Hi-Fi home audio over
standard Wi-Fi networks directly from devices that use a Play-Fi app or
software driver. The technology can be easily incorporated into speakers,
soundbars, AVRs and other playback devices, as well as into phones, tablets,
PCs and other audio sources.

The benefits of DTS Play-Fi include:

  *Quality Sound Experience—DTS Play-Fi wirelessly transmits high-definition
    “lossless” audio, with no impact on sound quality
  *Multi-Room Listening Experience—Connect as many as eight different audio
    systems to one network and enjoy music and audio in every room of your
    home or office, perfectly synchronized with no lag. Or you can stream
    different songs to different rooms via different mobile devices
  *Connectivity Range—DTS Play-Fi-enabled mobile devices connect wirelessly
    to playback systems via a standard wireless home network, enabling DTS
    Play-Fi connectivity anywhere within the home
  *DTS Play-Fi Mobile App—The DTS Play-Fi Mobile App turns any connected
    device into an audio control center, allowing you to enjoy stored or
    cloud-based audio content over DTS Play-Fi-enabled audio systems

“Wren Sound Systems is dedicated to creating wireless speakers that make truly
moving audio relevant and accessible in the age of digital content,” Wren
Sound Systems president and CEO Mike Giffin said. “We couldn’t be more pleased
to be launching a DTS Play-Fi-equipped model. The platform gives us a chance
to bring wireless Hi-Fi audio to listeners who’ve never experienced it, and we
believe they’ll be impressed with DTS Play-Fi’s sound quality, simple setup
and multi-room streaming feature. From an engineering perspective, DTS Play-Fi
was simple to implement within the Wren V5PF. The plug-and-play module, the
streamlined API and DTS’ technical support allowed us to bring the speaker to
market faster than we expected.”

Like all Wren V5 wireless speakers, the V5PF features cutting-edge audio
technology and real bamboo or rosewood veneers, brought together by classic
audio know-how and old-school build quality. The result is a wireless speaker
that delivers rich, room-filling sound and superior ease of use in a refined,
elegant package.

Pricing and Availability
The Wren V5PF will be available in early 2013, with an MSRP of $399. The
companion Wren Play-Fi App will be free and available on the Google Play Store
and the Amazon Marketplace.
