Audiophile-grade wireless speaker
The W9 is Definitive Technology’s flagship audiophile-grade wireless
speaker. Created for audio aficionados with unrelenting performance
expectations, the W9 delivers exceptional dynamic range and extraordinary
bass response. Transducers on the front baffle and on both sides of the
enclosure create a “Tri-Polar” dispersion pattern that radiates sound off
of the surrounding walls.
What Obsession Sounds Like
There’s a fine line between loving music and being obsessed with it.
When it comes to making music sound the best it can sound, we have a hard
time believing that good enough is acceptable. It has to be flawless. Perfect.
Uncompromising. In short, we think it would be crazy to give music anything
less than everything it deserves.

"The W9 makes the case for Play-Fi in that it simply sounds better than anything Sonos makes. In fact, it's one of the best-sounding wireless speakers I've ever encountered -- and after doing exhaustive reviews of portable and home Bluetooth speakers plus AirPlay speakers for The Wirecutter, as well as dozens of wireless speaker reviews for Mashable, Sound & Vision and About.com Stereos, I've probably heard at least as many wireless speakers as anyone alive."Brent Butterworth - About Tech (Dec 31, 1969) Read More
"Definitive Technology has knocked it out of the park with its first Play-Fi family of products. The speakers are gorgeous, they sound fantastic, and they offer integrators a lot of flexibility in getting multi-zone audio into areas where clients may not want to pay for a truly custom solution."Dennis Burge - Residential Systems (Jan 08, 2015) Read More
"My favorite aspect of the highs that come out of the Definitive Technology W9 speaker is the vibrance. There is no passivity within the upper registers, even in the face of muscular lows thumping out. Notes play out with equal parts energy and precision – it also helps that the W9 is quite balanced with the highs, mids, and lows."
"You can get a serious rush just from listening to the Definitive Technology W9 speaker for a period of time. It’s any wonder that the W9 is the company’s flagship product for audio enthusiasts and audiophiles. The energy carries on through to the ears, and if you’re not moving your body a bit while listening then you might want to check for a pulse."
