Why do you recommend placing my wireless audio device near my router for the initial network setup?

  • This ensures a strong network signal during setup.
  • If using WPS setup mode it is easier to press the WPS button on your router.
  • Play-Fi firmware is installed at the factory with the most current version available at time of manufacturing. In the time between manufacturing and your purchase, it is likely that several Play-Fi firmware updates have been released. When the product has not been updated for a long period of time, the update files will be larger than normal. Ensuring a strong network signal and reliable connection during this first, large firmware update will minimize the risk of an update failure.

Uncompromising performance. Unflinching accuracy. Unwavering reliability. Harnessing the myriad technical advantages of electrostatic principles to recreate sound in its truest form—this is what MartinLogan is all about.
