Lithe Audio Wi-Fi Ceiling Speaker launched
UK-based AV brand, Lithe Audio, has launched its new Wi-Fi ceiling speakers which are designed to provide an all-in-one solution for multi-room music streaming.With the 60W RMS amplifier and Wi-Fi built-in, there’s no need for speaker cables or servers, so they should be very easy to install. They are also the only AirPlay-certified ceiling speakers available on the market today, and come with a dedicated App that has Spotify Connect, Deezer, TIDAL and vTuner radio already enabled.
The Lithe Audio ceiling speakers allow you to audio from any audio service to a single, a selection or up to 30 speakers at once for a full multi-room audio experience. The App will save your settings for individual zones or to play Party Mode (all speakers at once) for future streaming.
Until now it hasn’t been easy to retrofit Wi-Fi speakers in a ceiling without connecting to a separate amplifier or running cables through your walls, says Lithe, but they believe their design is completely different from anything else currently available in this sector, allowing you to connect power from your lighting circuit, link to your device via the App, and stream your music.
Other features of the speakers include RCA input to connect to the TV or another music source such as a CD player, plus DNLA and UPnP to enable you to play your music from the NAS drive within your home network. Users can switch between mono and stereo output and have varying volume levels in each room whist playing multi-room audio.
At £329.99 for a single Wi-Fi ceiling speaker or £399.99 a pair, the manufacturer believes they are providing full value with cost almost half that of a similar quality ceiling speaker that would require a separate amp and speaker cables.
