Look to Lithe Audio for your sports viewing needs

So who’s place will it be? Whether it’s that big upcoming fight or the start of a new sporting season, the ultimate endorsement of your home entertainment system is whether or not you’re the designated host. If you consistently find yourself having to leave the comfort of your own surroundings to watch every premier league game, you should probably get the hint.

Lithe Audio Motorised Flip Down Ceiling Mount- a fantastic space saving solution

So where is your TV? This will be the first question on your guest's lips as they walk into your home. They may think you're some kind of ascetic, and that your evening are spent performing transcendental meditation to ambient whale music. The reality is that you're living in a modern home with all the accoutrements of a 21st century lifestyle. And you might just want to tell them to look up...

Our ceiling flip down TV mount is the perfect product for those that want to maximise space and make their home look slick. These motorised models have that technological pizzazz that will make people go 'ahhh'.

 

And once the initial amazement has worn off, the long term benefits of our units are countless, and will give you the ultimate clutter free solution to your TV watching habits.

What are the benefits?

For a start they are raised nice and high to be easily viewed from all positions. We're thinking specifically of those who like to spend their evenings Netflix bingeing from bed. No longer will you have to feng shui the pillows to allow yourself an adequate viewing angle. Here, the TV is raised to the optimum height for all to see. Just lower your unit into position and hey presto!

Then there are the obvious space saving benefits of our flip down models. That wall which was now taken up with TV, cabinet, decade-old birthday cards, and tatty memorabilia can now be incorporated into the room once more. Which means so much more space for activities!

Less clutter also means more scope for clumsiness. So whether you own a crazy cat or are prone to furious bursts of gamer rage, your TV is now safely out of the way to prevent any damage from occurring. Instead, your prized LCD screen is sheltering out of harm's way, safe and secure.

Installation is very simple, and won't take a DIY expert to achieve. It is simply a case of drilling a series of holes in your wall and attaching our mounting bracket. The rest is ridiculously easy, and you will have your TV mounted in no time at all.

Our units also come with a handy mini remote with which you can make adjustments to the viewing angle of your TV, as well as store your unit away.

Put some Spring in your step with our all-in-one Bluetooth ceiling speakers

It is that season again: Migrant birds are arriving, bumblebees doing their pollen rounds, and the pale sheen of men's calves illuminate the pavements. Springtime is here. And for all those whose circadian rhythms are out of whack, it is a chance to spend our mornings resuming our usual zest for life.

There is nothing better than waking up in the morning with warm rays of sunshine falling on your bed. Well actually there is...

Our all in one ceiling speakers offer the chance for you to wake up to rediscover a bit of morning glory. And if you're not an Oasis fan, connect your phone to these speakers and let your imagination run riot. Some of our users has programmed nature sounds to lull themselves into wakefulness, others opt for something more danceable. What will you decide on?

The science of sound

Whatever your preference, it is no secret that music in the morning can put your brain in the right gear. Whatever your day throws at you, nothing beats the calm self assurance of someone who has started that day belting out a few bars of 'come fly with me'. In a study conducted at the University of Montreal, music was found to lower the levels of cortisol - a major stress hormone. The researchers measured anxiety levels, focus, and decision making, and all were improved with music. Your morning shower arias are more important than you thought!

And if you are susceptible to feeling stressful and impatient, then you need a speaker system that's right for you. No cables. No inefficiencies. No fuss.

The great news is that Lithe Audio's engineers have developed a truly modern speaker system that will look great, sound great, and ensure you start your day on the front foot.

So what makes our speakers so fantastic?

  • Superb quality 65Hz-20kHz speakers

  • All in one solution covers all your home audio requirements

  • Unobtrusive minimalist design will suit any decor

  • No dusting required

Our models come as an all-in-one device that will fit right into your light socket. No fiddling around with wires, plug sockets, or extraneous cables. Your home is already set up for one of our speakers. And if the majority of your morning is spent standing in your shower or soaking in the bath, then our IP44 Rated speaker models are perfect for your bathroom.

We've worked hard to make sure the benefits of music in your household are as easy to achieve as possible. There is a fine line between waking up to crystal clear simulated birdsong and tinny, hangover-simulating audio. We've made sure our speakers deliver all the lifestyle perks that music has to offer, and it has never been easier to reap the benefits.

If you don't consider yourself a morning person, you probably have never tried waking up to our Lithe Audio ceiling speakers. With high quality audio coming at you from above, that Spring feeling has never been easier to discover.

Celebrate St Patrick's day in style with all-in-one ceiling speakers

Anyone not 100% conversant with hagiography would be forgiven for thinking St Patrick was the patron saint of booze ups. All religious connotations that may previously have marked the occasion have now been diluted with barrel after barrel of Guinness.

The truth is, St Patrick’s day has become a global celebration of Irish culture. With that said, any celebrant must by right expect plenteous quantities of alcohol, hilarious costumes, and great music.

Next: Who wants to play a game?

When your guests are at an advanced level of insobriety, give them the task of identifying where the sound is coming from. Watch and laugh as they poke into every crevice and fondle every inanimate object in an attempt to determine from whence Shane MacGowan’s voice is emerging.

Lithe Audio’s ceiling speakers are designed to fit seamlessly in with your decor. Our unobtrusive, paintable devices are elegantly fashioned to blend harmoniously with their surroundings. Whatever aesthetic you’re going for, whether your walls are neutral white or clover green, you’ll never have to look unfavourably upon blocky speaker systems ever again.

“Where the music happens” - Why the bedroom is the ideal place for ceiling speakers

For many waking up in the 21st century society, mornings are a struggle. If you’re not suffering the consequences of boozy late night networking events, you’re waking up to buzzing, snarling phone alarms. And if your daily battle to find the ‘snooze’ button has already cost you several shattered phone screens, then you could be forgiven for thinking technology is against you.

But imagine waking up to the sound of nature filling your room, or your favourite acoustic ballad rousing you into a sense of wakefulness. Imagine experiencing mornings as a thing of tranquillity and ease, rather than a cause for alarm.  

Not only is this possible, but it is just one of many great benefits to fitting your bedroom out with a Lithe Audio ceiling speaker.

The others? Read on and find out…

Netflix and chill

There’s no greater comfort than watching cataclysmic events and apocalyptic disasters from the comfort of your own bed. And if don’t like watching BBC Parliament, there’s always a gripping TV drama to keep you entertained while you nestle beneath the sheets.

Our 65Hz-20kHz ceiling mounted speakers are designed to bathe you in a cascade of sound. So whether it’s soaking up all the drama of The Crown or just trying to comprehend what Sam Riley is saying, consider our innovative technology as a great way to improve your home viewing experience.

Sound capping

If the decibel levels of your house routinely approach that of a drag race, then you probably: a) have teenagers b) require some way of turning the volume down without your voice going hoarse. As soon as your ambient music becomes a seismological curiosity, then it’s probably time to find a solution.

Lithe Audio have that solution in mind with a programmable sound cap, which ensures that your family members are able to enjoy super rich audio quality in moderation. Rather than damaging their ears sitting next to a tinny speaker system, your son or daughter’s bedroom speakers can now amplify sound in a practical, healthy way.

Improve your sleep

If you’re a light sleeper and spend your nights repeatedly waking up to alarms and traffic sounds coming from outside your home, then an effective solution is at hand.

In his autobiography, football superstar Wayne Rooney admitted to leaving the vacuum cleaner on during the night to drown out any unexpected noises. If, like Wayne, you prefer consistent white noise to things that may go bump in the night, then our ceiling speakers will be a great way to ease your passage into the land of nod.

Just hook your speakers up to your phone as it plays out any form of relaxing audio, and your forty winks will be guaranteed.

Clutter free bedsides

If your bedside table is a constant hive of books, phone chargers, and speakers, then you may at some point have experienced the tragic domino effect that may ensue when reaching out for your phone. If it wasn’t so awful, it would be an interesting case study in physics. Through some kind of sorcery all bedside items always end up scattered all over your floor. And there are rarely any survivors.

Well Lithe Audio can help you out in that department. Our ceiling speakers provide you with a no-fuss cable free audio experience that will provide comfort and ease. Feel the unbounded pleasure of lying back in bed and controlling your audio system without getting tangled up.

Our ceiling speakers, as with all our products, are designed to enhance your feeling of domestic bliss. Check out our range now!

Aiming high: The key benefits of ceiling-mounted speakers

Whether it's political upheavals or personal crises, there has never been a better time to shut yourself in your home and crank up the bluetooth speakers. Seclusion is the new inclusion. And the prospect of turning your living room into a disco floor has revolutionised Friday nights for party people up and down the country. According to the British Phonographic Industry, December 2016 witnessed its first-ever 1 billion audio streams week milestone! That's a lot of domestic partying!

Gone too are the days when you would need to decipher which cable you can safely unplug without attracting the ire of your Netflix-binging other-half. Wireless communication is here to stay, and - with it - a whole new range of exciting possibilities for audio entertainment.

We here at Lithe Audio are obsessed with ways to make your domestic life both economical and pleasurable. And our ceiling mounted bluetooth speakers are no exception.

But what makes it so unique?

... And more pertinently, why attach speakers to the ceiling?

Here are some of the key factors that make our speakers so unique, and so appealing for those obsessed with smart technology.

Free up space

Space is at a premium these days. You can barely walk down the street without knocking some poor child off their tricycle. And, unless you're financially blessed, the same is true in our households. Your infinite capacity for collecting old Nintendo games will in all likelihood run counter to the finite amount of space in your cosy flat.

So, without turning your home into a hall of mirrors to give the illusion of spaciousness, you need to redirect clutter from the ground. We here at Lithe Audio have designed our ceiling speakers with your home's tidiness in mind. So instead of big sub woofers occupying an entire corner of your room, we have our bluetooth speakers that can be discretely mounted onto your ceiling.

 

Cable free interior

As already mentioned, cables are ugly. To think that in the 21st century our TV units still resemble snake pits is a fact that puts our generation to shame. Countless man hours have been spent trying to untangle these unsightly objects.

They can also be a safety hazard, as anyone entering a dark, cable-strewn room would know all too well. Your floor should not be an obstacle course. And neither should your attempt to find a solution. Luckily, our ceiling-mounted speakers are there to free up one more wire. Your path to a free and easy, wireless home experience begins with us.

 

Music fills whole room

Ceiling speakers benefit from awesome sound dispersion. You don't need to be a geeky audiophile to realise that speakers positioned in the corner of a room sound boxy and unclear. No matter how much you spend on a new sound system, the positioning of your speakers can make a huge contribution to how your music actually ends up sounding.

Lithe Audio's ceiling speakers allow the sound to filter downwards into the room, providing a rich audio quality that sounds like it's coming from the heavens. Plus, with the inclusion of pivoting tweeters that direct the sound to wherever you wish, you can ensure superb audio every single time.

 

No compromise on decor

As Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and similarly exuberant interior designers will tell you, aesthetically pleasing decor can make a property. You may have a luxury apartment in Mayfair, but if you've fitted it with tacky 80s retro gear, chances are you'll hear a whole range of excuses for people not wanting to come to your house. And the same thing goes for your speakers.

Most high quality speakers days require a whole furniture to hold them up. For an aesthetically minded individual, this is one piece of furniture too many. To truly feel part of the 21st century, we need to incorporate speakers within the fabric of the home itself. Lithe Audio's ceiling speakers are housed discreetly in their own ceiling-mounted units, protruding 3mm from the ceiling. And if this isn't enough, our speakers can be easily painted to match the decor of your property!

3 great applications for TV wall mounts

TV wall mounts are an exciting piece of technology. The idea of investing in a TV cabinet to support the weight of your boxy television set now seems ridiculous. With newer, lighter screens, any flat wall or surface is ideal. Now, instead of looking despairingly at a heavy, dust-infested piece of furniture, you can admire the ease and satisfaction that motorised wall mounts provide.

There are a host of benefits to getting your TV set mounted and motorised. Along with the incredible satisfaction and feeling of power that comes with using a remote control to guide your TV around, they provide much more efficiency and visibility for a range of different environments.

With that said, here are three awesome applications for TV wall mounts:

Make your office more visual

We all know the feeling. Sitting in a dull office, waiting for the hours to roll by. You've been through the entire Buzzfeed archive twice, and you're sated on funny cat videos. If the mechanical novelty of the water dispenser is enough to inspire a congregation of diversion-seekers, you can agree with the fact that offices can be pretty drab affairs.

But watch heads turn and eyes light up with the introduction of a communal screen. TV wall mounts can be used very effectively in office environments. Whatever the workplace. Whether you work in media and need a live news feed, or want to introduce clever visuals to motivate the team, a mounted screen can be a great way to raise morale and make the office a more entertaining place to work.

Reduce clutter (and damage) in the home

As mentioned, the 21st century home has no place for TV cabinets. They can be difficult to maintain, attract unnecessary clutter, and - for those with pets - produce moments like the following:

Technology has moved on, and as screens have become more portable, so have the fittings. Motorised wall mounts now allow you to position your TV high up in the optimum position for the best pet-friendly viewing experience.

Motivate and entertain gym-goers

If you work at a gym, you'd probably realise how precarious low-lying technology is. Many a vulnerable phone screen has been broken while smashing out that last rep. And with bar bells being flung around like cabers on Burns night, those delicate LCD screens need to be well out of the firing line. Which is why you'd be well advised to turn your attentions to the latest TV wall mount technology. If you want to keep your patrons entertained and fired up with screenings of the latest Justin Bieber music video, then consider only the most secure and high tech models.

Which is where Lithe Audio comes in...

Our TV wall mounts come in a range of different sizes for flat screen or curved, leading all the way up to 100 inches for the most epic cinematic experiences.

If you're a couch potato, and shy away from getting up to do things, our motorised models include a remote control which means you don't even have to get up to move them into position.

And if you can't decide which wall to attach your device to, or just want to save space, then take a look at our amazing ceiling-mounted versions.

We are passionate about using technology to improve people's lives. So whether it's at home, in the office, or trying to achieve your fitness goals, take a look at our range now and see what's possible!

5 Christmas songs that will sound great on your ceiling speakers

No matter how anti-Christmas you may profess to be, it is difficult to hear the opening piano melody of Fairytale of New York and not be engulfed in cascades of Christmas spirit. There is something nicely comforting and familiar about a good Christmas song. It is like pulling into your garage after a hard day's work, or sitting in front of a warm fireplace on a freezing cold day. It is a feeling that - despite all the crazy twists and turns that may have happened throughout the year - you are back home, and everything is normal again.

That feeling is no doubt intensified when you have an awesome home speaker system that the whole family can listen to. But for whoever is in control of the tunes, make sure your selection is as tasteful and uncontroversial as possible. Ludacris's 'Ludacrismas' is perhaps too lacking in wholesome Christmas references to appeal to your nan, while only someone with an unbounded and borderline unhealthy interest in the 80s would be able to stomach any more plays of Slade's 'Merry Christmas Everybody'.

So if you're putting together a Christmas playlist, make sure you include the following songs:

If nostalgia had a voice, it would be that of Christmas crooners like Perry Como. Lending a slow jazz feel to a classic carol, this is a great choice for your festive celebrations. With tacky Christmas jumpers all the rage these days, vintage is the way to go this holiday season!

There's no better way to get into the festive spirit than hearing the legend that was Johnny Cash repeat the Barum-pum-pum-pum refrain of this Christmas classic. His version lends an air of profundity to a song that is too often approached in a playful spirit.

Now this next one is arguably nowhere near entering the traditional canon of Christmas tunes, but its inclusion is primarily due to the fact that it's The Killers. And like any Killers track, its thumping bassline and anthemic vocal melody is enough to get even the most stubborn of Scrooges up on their feet.

An obvious choice, but a true Christmas classic. From the soulful opening few lines to the emphatically danceable chorus, this has that familiarity and togetherness that we all need at this time of the year. It also offers up some comic moments as friends and family at various degrees of intoxication attempt to match Mariah's impressive vocal range.

And finally... This track has everything: tenderness and sensitivity, while also providing ample dancing opportunities for those who appreciate the jaunty folk rhythms The Pogues have always specialised in. In just over 4 minutes, the listener is subjected to the whole gamut of human emotion. It therefore represents the trials and tribulations of the Christmas period itself.

___

A note to all DJ's: For anyone looking to throw the best Christmas party ever, make sure your guests are subjected to the full experience. While these tracks may sound OK on your son's tinny computer speakers, you need that warmth and richness offered by a superior sound system. Lithe Audio's ceiling speakers offer a superb 65Hz-20kHz audio range that is sure to enhance that festive feeling in anyone lucky enough to hear your playlist. Forget kissing under the mistletoe, whack on a Christmas classic and smooch your partner under the speakers!

3 hilarious Bluetooth speaker pranks that prove why pin protection is important

Anyone prone to exploring the many rabbit holes opened up by Youtube’s ‘up next’ column might be aware of the myriad videos exposing the vulnerabilities of Bluetooth speaker systems. Whole Youtube channels are dedicated to providing variations of the ‘playing ridiculously inappropriate audio in public’ theme.

Any impartial observer may perhaps watch these videos and think twice about investing in Bluetooth technology; the assumption being that what they may provide in effortless convenience they take away as potential troll magnets.

Thankfully, the pin protection technology utilised in Lithe Audio’s ceiling speaker range will help stop this from happening, and will likely force those trolls to trudge back where they belong - under the bridge.

But for anyone humming and hawing about the merits of pin protection technology, here is a Youtube-oriented case study of times when such security was perhaps needed...

Prankster fills department store with cacophonous dubstep

As large outlets catering to large amounts of shoppers, department stores are particularly vulnerable to Bluetooth-hijackers. Indeed it happens so often, it is a mystery why many haven’t done anything about it.

Hooking his smartphone up to a powerful looking speaker system, this prankster decides to annoy customers and staff with a bass-heavy track which would be more appropriate at a dance festival than a Target store.

Science teacher confounded by mystery audio

If there’s one subject on the school curriculum we here at Lithe Audio feel is undeserving of being disrupted by Bluetooth-related hijinks, it is science. The future of innovation and human progress rests on the perfectly preserved silence of classrooms across the country.

This science teacher is a picture of confusion as his lesson is continually disrupted by trashy electro music. He laughs it off, but it is clear to see he’d rather be discoursing on the wonders of science and technology than attempting to stop the mystery music.

Man uses ‘magic’ to mess with neighbour’s playlist

In a hilariously silly bid to make it look like he’s circumventing hacking laws, this guy waves his wand around and miraculously manages to switch the songs on his neighbours’ Bluetooth speaker.

One can only imagine the neighbours’ annoyance as their attempts at a Bhangra-themed dance party is continually frustrated by the melancholy opening bars of Vanessa Carlton’s ‘Thousand Miles’.

Now that the potential problems have been addressed, here’s how we at Lithe Audio work to solve them...

Our pin protected ceiling speaker models include a fail-safe way to control who’s in charge of your home playlist. Just use a 4-digit pin code when connecting a new device - whether computer or smartphone - and you are the undisputed DJ of your household. No need to live in fear of Youtubers blasting out Skrillex while you’re enjoying your morning coffee!

And while our non-pin protected models will undoubtedly liven up any household and allow for awesome Amazon Echo connectivity, if its security you’re after or live on busy thoroughfare then consider our protected versions for a fantastic present this Christmas!

Amazon Dot + Lithe Audio ceiling speakers = the ultimate pairing

In case you haven’t checked your emails, browsed social media, or engaged with any online platform at all for the past week or so, you’d be well aware that Christmas is just around the corner. For shopping enthusiasts it is the most important date in the calendar, where all the large retailers dramatically lower the prices of some of their most sought-after goods for a limited period. Anyone on the market for the latest tech gadgets will surely be gushing over the devices already advertised in the run up to this year’s event. And if you’re seeking inspiration for potential Christmas presents, this is your opportunity to stock up on some fantastic stocking fillers.

One gadget which is sure to create a lot of excitement for the online bargain hunters out there will be the new Amazon Echo Dot range. With a significant price drop expected this Friday, many will relish the chance to introduce one of these voice-activated home assistants into their lives.

The home of the future is here...

For the uninitiated, imagine if Siri metamorphosed into a small circular box located on your living room table. And, instead of having to reach over and put it on the correct setting, you could simply shout out “Alexa, play some music,” and the task was performed. This is basically the closest we’ve come to fulfilling those visions of the ‘future home’ projected in those films of yesteryear, and it will be made available at a cut price rate this Friday.

Here at Lithe Audio, we’re always looking to use our technology to sync up with other gadgets you may have around the home. So if you’re eying a purchase of Amazon’s Echo Dot, here’s how you can use our products to maximise the potential of your device…

Hook Amazon Dot up to Lithe Audio’s ceiling speakers for a truly awesome home experience... 

What’s better than having a voice activated assistant present in your living room? Having a voice activated assistant throughout your entire household, that’s what. And with Lithe Audio’s ceiling-mounted speakers, you can get just that.

Imagine: you’re in the kitchen preparing dinner while your other half is in the bedroom. The house is silent, and there’s a distinct lack of energy throughout the home. You’re aware that the nine to five routine is becoming stale, lacking excitement. Then, on a whim, you shout out ‘Alexa! Play ‘Rapper’s Delight’ and suddenly your home is echoing to the funky bassline and groovy rhymes of The Sugarhill Gang. You dance your way out of the kitchen while your loved one dances their way out of the bedroom. Meeting in the corridor, your cheesy dance moves commingle in a gloriously shameless tribute to 80s disco music.

Using Lithe Audio’s ceiling speakers in conjunction with the Amazon Dot will not only amplify and enrich its output, but extend it. The dulcet tones of your home assistant will be carried throughout the home, expanding the already exciting possibilities of the device. Rather than being a timid voice in the corner, the celestial sound of Alexa will be coming at you from above with a superb 65Hz-20kHz audio range.

So how does it work?

The Amazon dot device will connect via cable or Bluetooth to your ceiling speakers, and, once one device is connected, you will be able to connect a second speaker using a simple speaker cable. Easy to set up, remarkable results.

Lithe Audio prides itself on devising ways of making home technology both convenient, and more intuitive. So if it’s breaking into an impromptu dance, or managing your personal finances, however you wish to use your home assistant technology, make sure you consider our ceiling mounted speakers for a richer, more immersive experience.

If you’re in the market for some truly incredible tech, then consider the Amazon Echo Dot alongside our ceiling speakers. We guarantee it will change your life. 

The home of the future is here, and it's beautiful...

"This is the best thing you will do for your family," a salesman tells father of three Joe Hawkins in the first episode of Channel 4 series Humans. The purchase is made, and the family welcome into their household a fully functioning, eerily lifelike, 'synth' - a less scary sounding name for robot. What follows is a distinctly British version of the 'when robots go bad' story, which is quickly growing into one of the most terrifying genres among anyone who's ever suspected Siri may have a bit of an attitude problem.

It's true, technology is advancing at a rapid rate. And, while we may hear instances of malfunctioning or even exploding hardware from time to time (not naming any names), the majority of us have no qualms about introducing new gadgets into the home. But for those that remain unconvinced, a brief look at the history of household technology proves that we are far, far better off than we used to be.

'In my day...'

While the previous generation waited around like stooges for their TV sets to warm up, we are already using motorised tv wall mounts to guide our 60 inch flat-screens into the optimum position while flicking through the endless amount of channels on offer. If home audio is your thing, feel a sense of gratitude that you're not risking permanent hearing damage with tinny cassette players. And the next time you stick your clothes into a washing machine, take a look at your fingers and be thankful that they don't resemble a jar of prunes that your grandmother has left in her attic for the best part of a century!

Technology has helped to reduce inefficiencies around the home. It has granted us more hours of leisure, and ensured that families are able to spend more quality time together. And if you think that uncomfortable experiences bring about a moral toughness lacking in this generation, then consider those poor souls who - due to circumstances beyond their control - must put up with the voice of Keith Lemon echoing around their household every Thursday night.

Lithe Audio's philosophy  

At Lithe Audio, our smart home technology systems respond to specific consumer needs.  We design products that reduce those niggling inefficiencies and inconveniences around the home that leave you wishing technology would bridge the gap.

It is our company's mantra that "We work forwards from what our customer needs are, and not backwards from what the technology allows," while making sure everything we design is"intuitive to use for everyone in the whole family."

Far from causing alienation and division in households as some TV shows love to warn us about, we believe in the power of technology to contribute towards happier and more enriching domestic lives.

So whether it's installing ceiling speakers throughout the house to get the whole family moving in unison, or using a motorised TV mount to ensure everyone gets the best seat, it is our aim to harness the power of technology to put the 'is' into 'domestic bliss'.

Raise your shower singing game with some ceiling-mounted speakers

One of the nation’s favourite but least owned-up-to pastimes is the noble art of singing in the shower. A day that has not begun with a few bars of ‘Come Fly With Me’ while being engulfed in a cascade of borderline boiling water is a day wasted. Many famous historical triumphs can at some point be attributed to the successful completion of this morning ritual. It makes us happy, warms up the vocal chords, and provides even the most austere of shower-users with that initial zest-for-life that is always needed for confronting the world with the requisite levels of tenacity. 

But just like any art form, shower singing requires practice and method before true greatness can be achieved. If you’re one of many who can only remember one or two lines from your favourite chorus before resorting to confused mumblings, then what you need is a Lithe Audio Bluetooth in ceiling speaker. But if you’ve ever been showered with cheap, gimmicky gifts on father’s day or at Christmas, you’ll know that installing shower-based speakers is a bit of a pain.

The existing speaker systems on offer tend to be one or all of the following things:

• Difficult to fit
• Expensive to install
• Endless amount of wires
• Liable to get damaged or waterlogged
• Poor sound quality
• Tacky and gimmicky

But, with Lithe Audio in ceiling-based speakers that attach through your lighting circuit, and Bluetooth connectivity with built in amplifier, the idea of fitting out your bathroom with an incredible sound system has become a beautiful reality. 

No longer will you have to fiddle around with those annoyingly belligerent transparent suction cups that leave horrible brown stains on your bathroom tiles. No longer will you be forced to cringe at that horribly distorted sound quality seems dead set on giving you tinnitus. There will be no more pretending to be appreciative of those cheap speakers that - however lovingly gifted - turn your shiny new bathroom into a children’s play centre.

At 6.5” and with a sleek exterior, Lithe Audio's ceiling-mounted speaker will blend in perfectly in any modern bathroom, and with a powerful yet crisp sound quality, that home disco you’ve always pined for takes a large step towards being realised. Check out our impressive range now!
