Sound Bar System with Wireless Streaming
The W Studio sound bar system is Definitive Technology’s flagship wireless
soundbar that perfectly blends high-performance theater sound with hiresolution musical reproduction. The W Studio’s purposefully slim design (only
3.5” deep) is only overshadowed by its fit and finish, featuring solid aluminum
end caps. The W Studio uses Definitive Technology’s proprietary Spatial Array
technology that aids in creating a high-definition, room-filling 5.1 channel
surround sound experience.
The compact wireless subwoofer creates waves of big bass via its downward
firing 8-inch woofer, bass port and robust 200 Watt amplifier. HDMI
switching for both audio and video maximizes this home theater’s high
performance potential.
The Definitive Technology Wireless Collection
The W Studio is part of Definitive Technology’s Wireless Collection which
is an all-encompassing solution for distributing audiophile-grade music
anywhere or everywhere in your home. The W Studio can be used as a
stand-alone wireless speaker or as part of a family. Stream your favorite music
services, internet radio and your personal digital music library all from your
smartphone, tablet or computer. What’s more, the streamlined setup process
allows you to be up and running in a matter of minutes. And because you
can Mix-and-match speakers with the open DTS Play-Fi ® technology standard,
future-proofing your technology has never been easier.

Hooking Up Your W Studio to Your TV

Cable
The HDMI cable runs from the HDMI output of the SoloCinema Studio to
an HDMI input on the TV set.
You will use the SoloCinema Studio remote for switching between the sources
you have connected to the system (Blu-Ray player, cable box etc.). We
recommend this method; it ensures the highest resolution audio and video
signals for the best possible audio performance.
NOTE: For greater convenience, you can program the SoloCinema Studio
to respond to the power, volume, mute, and source select commands of your
TV or cable box remote. See the “IR Learn” section of the OSD Set-up Menu
Functions for instructions.
Connection Method #2
All sources into your TV, with TOSLINK
optical audio output from the TV set to the
sound bar.
NOTE: Some older TV’s have only an analog output connection. In this
scenario, the TV does all the switching between sources and the SoloCinema
Studio is always set to INPUT #4. A Dolby Digital or DTS digital audio signal
cannot be passed through a TV’s analog output connection. The best audio
signal quality that can be reproduced using this method is two-channel stereo
audio. This method is the least-preferred connection method of the three
described here.
Pairing the Subwoofer
The sound bar and the subwoofer come paired from the factory. All you do
is plug in the subwoofer’s power cord and turn on the ON/OFF POWER
switch. When you turn on the sound bar, both the bar and subwoofer will
establish a communication link.

The TV does all the switching between sources, and the sound bar is
always set to INPUT #5.
NOTE: Most TV’s cannot pass a Dolby Digital or DTS 5.1 channel audio
signal through an optical audio output connection. They can only pass
2 channel stereo through Toslink. The SoloCinema Studio will simulate a
surround experience, but it will not be as effective as when processing a
true 5.1 digital surround signal. This hookup method offers convenience:
most functions (including source switching) can be done through one remote
control, such as your cable box or TV remote. But you won’t get the best
system sound quality, or be able to use all of the features of the SoloCinema
Studio, including your OSD (on-screen displays).

Getting Started
Connecting Your W Studio
Home Network Basics
Wi-Fi Setup
In general, Wi-Fi is the wireless streaming of data over a network. Here,
Wi-Fi audio is the streaming of music throughout a home by connecting multiple
speakers and/or devices to a wireless network. The controller for the Definitive
Technology Wireless Collection is the Definitive Technology App, which sends
music information to each DTS Play-Fi enabled speaker or device.
1. To ensure easy setup, place your W Studio near your internetconnected wireless router. When setup is complete, you can move
your device anywhere you want to.
2. Connect the included power cable to the W Studio and a power
outlet. The device will power on automatically.
3. The white light on the back will blink quickly for about 20 seconds,
after which it will begin to pulse slowly.
4. The slowly pulsing light means your device is ready to connect to your
Wi-Fi network.
NOTE: If the Wi-Fi LED is not pulsing slowly, Press and hold the
Wi-Fi setup button (for 8 seconds), until you hear the second
set of tones.
5. Download the Definitive Technology App from the Apple App Store or
Google Play Store.
6. Launch the app and follow the instructions.
Utility App
Network and System Requirements
It all begins by building a wireless home network, preferably one with a
high-speed Internet connection. Here’s what you’ll need to connect your
W Studio to your network:
• A Wireless Network connected to the internet with an 802.11g router
or better.*
• An Android device with version 2.2 operating system or newer OR
an iOS device with version 6.0 operating system or newer.
NOTE: To enable Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) mode with a WPS
compatible router, press and hold the Wi-Fi button on the W Studio
for 4 seconds or until the first beep. Now push the WPS button on
your wireless router. The W Studio will automatically connect to
your network without the need to enter your password.
• The password for your wireless network (if required).
*Router type is usually listed on the router, itself. Please call the dedicated
Definitive Technology Aficionado hotline for further questions related to
router type.
For The Best Music Streaming Experience
To ensure your system is operating under the best environment possible, here
are a few additional tips:
• For the fastest streaming performance, especially when connecting
to multiple speakers simultaneously, an 802.11n router or better is
recommended.
• Ensure the DTS Play-Fi device is within wireless reach of your router,
or that the signal is not blocked by concrete, brick, or other walls. The
quality of your connection can be observed in the Definitive App by
the Wireless Strength icon.

Working with NAS Drives, PCs, and OSX Devices
The Definitive App is capable of recognizing any Media Server or NAS Drive
that is broadcasting over your home network and that’s configured for open
access using the DLNA protocol.
Using the DTS Play-Fi Windows app, the Definitive Wireless Collection
products will play any file capable of being played by the Windows
operating system, including all music services. See “Downloading the DTS
Play-Fi App” above to learn more.
Because OSX devices don’t support DLNA, a third party software
(ex. Twonky, Plex or Servio) must be downloaded for them to be visible
to the network. Once downloaded, all locally stored content on OSX-based
devices will show up within the Definitive Technology app under
“Media Server.”

Adding or Controlling Multiple DTS Play-Fi
Enabled Devices to your System
The Wireless Collection makes creating a whole house wireless music system
as simple as pushing a button or two. Add more speakers, a sound bar, an
amp or adapter to an existing audio system. The Definitive App and your
home network do the rest.
• From the Definitive App home page, choose “Settings.”
• From the “Settings” screen, choose “Add DTS Play-Fi Device.”
• Follow the app’s instructions to add the device to your list.
Maximum number of rooms/zone supported:
Eight separate wireless source devices (smartphones, tablets, etc.), each with
its own source, are supported simultaneously and any wireless source device
can stream to 8 playback devices. Due to bandwidth limitations of most
wireless networks, we do not recommend more than 16 wireless DTS Play-Fi
products on the Wi-Fi network at a given time. With hard-wired Ethernet
connections (customary for audio/video racks or in custom installation
configurations), up to 256 devices can be theoretically supported. Call the
Aficionado hotline for more information.
Primary vs. Secondary Speakers
Once inside the Definitive Technology app, you will notice that when sending
music to your devices, they are grouped into primary and secondary zones.
The DTS Play-Fi software requires that a primary speaker be selected to create
a new listening session or zone. This is designed to maximize synchronization
down to 1 millisecond, thereby eliminating any sound echo that can be found
from other ecosystems.
Our recommendation for your listening environment is to always select as
your primary device the DTS Play-Fi enabled product with the strongest
signal strength. Note, however, that secondary speakers are connected to
your primary speaker. As such, if you disable your primary speaker, your
secondary speakers will likewise be temporarily disabled until a primary
speaker is once again selected.

Placement Options
Mounting the Sound Bar on the Wall
The SoloCinema Studio sound bar has built-in keyhole slots so you can
wall-mount it beneath your wall-mounted television. Spacers are included to
help secure and install your sound bar on the wall.
NOTE: DO NOT mount the sound bar directly to the wall. You must use the
supplied wall-mount spacers to ensure proper operation and reliability.
Tabletop Mounting
SoloCinema Studio comes with extra riser feet (two per side) that
magnetically attach to the bar to raise it as much as 15.2 mm (5/8”) off
the tabletop so the bar will clear the TV’s protruding table stand.
Attach magnetic feet: Peel off the protective cover and expose the magnets.
Attach the feet to the bottom edge of the sound bar.
NOTE: DO MAKE SURE you are using a wall anchor of suitable load-bearing
capacity (13.65 lb).
812.8 mm
[32"]
What if the bar blocks your TV’s remote IR receiver?
NOTE: The SoloCinema Studio could block your TV’s remote “eye,”
making it impossible to control the TV via remote control, so we supply
an IR flasher. Plug the flasher into the bar’s IR output and position it in
front of the TV’s eye.
Tips For Wall Mounting the Sound Bar
Leveling the sound bar: Use a bubble level to make sure the bar is level.
Mark holes with pencil, taking the keyhole slot measurement from the bar.
IR INPUT
Drill Screw Holes in Wall: Pre-drill the pilot-hole locations for mounting screws
(not included). Use screws rated to hold securely in the wall material and
have screw heads at least 0.33” (8.5 mm) in diameter.
IR OUTPUT
For custom installations: the IR input is more likely to be used with a home
automation system, like Crestron or Control 4. This is often just an electrical
connection to a piece of equipment.
www.definitivetech.com
NOTE: Measure Twice Make sure the sound bar clears the ceiling, adjacent
walls, corners, beams, lighting fixtures and door/window frames. Leave at
least 1-2” (25-50 mm) above the sound bar location to allow the sound bar
to slide onto the screws. Make sure the center of the bar is centered with the
TV screen’s center point.
Hang Sound bar on Posts: Line up the bar so that the screw heads slide
into the keyhole slots. Slide the bar down so the screw heads hold the
bar firmly in place.

Q: I want to order a replacement remote control. How do I do that?
Answer: You have several options. You can contact the dealer who
sold you the product, or you can e-mail or call us. Please provide us
with the serial number of your product, and the name of the dealer you
purchased the product from. Customers outside the U.S. and Canada
should contact the Definitive Technology importer in your country:
http://www.definitivetech.com/Dealers/International.aspx
6.Q: Does the SoloCinema support 3D video?
Answer: Yes, via the HDMI 1.4a inputs and output to the TV.
7.
Q: How do I set the crossover and channel balance settings?
Answer: You don’t need to make any crossover settings or adjustments.
SoloCinema Studio is a complete system, with subwoofer and main
system crossover points already preset.
8. Q: Where should I put the subwoofer?
Answer: We encourage subwoofer experimentation! Your subwoofer
and room interact to create the bass that you hear and feel. In general,
placing the subwoofer along the wall, or in a corner, will reinforce
the bass response and create a better listening experience. The
subwoofer is wireless, so try different places in the room until you are
satisfied with the bass that you experience.
www.definitivetech.com
9.Q: Should I mount the bar below, or above, my TV set?
Answer: The bar can be placed either above, or below, the
TV set, but close to ear level will sound best.
10.
Q: Can the sound bar be mounted to TV brackets that feature pivoting
arms?
Answer: Yes, but make sure that you leave enough clearance below
the TV to mount the sound bar! The combined weight of the TV, the
bracket, and the SoloCinema Studio sound bar MUST be less than the
rated weight capacity of the TV mount being used. You may or may not
need to use the SoloCinema wall bracket, depending upon the pivoting
mount being used.
11.
Q: I can hear sound coming out of the bar, but don’t see anything on
the television.
Answer: Getting multiple components to talk to each other can
sometimes be problematic. Some owners occasionally experience
issues such as:
•“I can see picture on the TV, but I can’t hear anything
out of the bar.”
•“I plugged in a source with HDMI and it just
doesn’t work.”
•“A component in my system is frozen and won’t let
me control it.”
HDMI is an elegant, high performance way to connect audio/
video components. In rare circumstances, such issues as the ones
listed above can occur. When you encounter problems like this,
please try the following troubleshooting steps:
1.Confirm that the Television and SoloCinema Studio are set to the
correct inputs and that the Volume is set to a reasonable level
2.Toggle inputs on the bar (select a different input and then
switch back)
3.Confirm that all cables are plugged in completely
4.Unplug the HDMI cable from the source and plug it back in
5.Power cycle all components in the system
6.Unplug the power cable from each component in the entire system
(TV, SoloCinema Studio, and all sources). Wait 3 minutes before
restoring power.
NOTE: If the trouble shooting tips above do not help you resolve your
issue, please ensure that all devices in your system have up-to-date
firmware. With many of todays ‘Smart’ (internet connected) TV’s,
Blu-ray players, and game systems, this can be as easy as going
into a menu and instructing the device to check for updates. We
recommend installing any and all updates when they become
available for all your devices.

Dual-Band Capabilities
Definitive Technology Wireless Collection products all have “dual-band”
capabilities. The most commonly used wireless band -- 2.4 GHz – can
often times be congested and slow, especially in environments where you
have many routers sending wireless signals (ex. mixed-use developments like
apartment buildings). In these instances, the Wireless Collection can also
jump onto the 5 GHz band.

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 Definitive product during
the setup process. On the home page of the app, scroll down to “Aficionado
Services” and follow the instructions.
Basic Troubleshooting
Under “Settings” on the Definitive App home page, you will find a category
called Troubleshooting.
This link will take you to the DTS Play-Fi Knowledge Base
https://play-fi.com/faq?/support. 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 Aficionado hotline at
1-800-223-5246.
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.
