LITHE AUDIO PARTNERS WITH CI SPECIALIST INVISION TO DISTRIBUTE ITS NEW FULLY-INTEGRATED, CONTROL4-ENABLED WIFI CEILING SPEAKERS
20th March 2019: Lithe Audio, the innovative UK-based AV brand has appointed Invision, Europe’s leading value-added distributor of professional technology solutions for homes, hotels and businesses, to distribute the latest version of the Lithe Audio all-in-one WiFi ceiling speakers that now have Control4 SDDP built-in.
Lithe Audio WiFi speakers are ideal for retrofit or new build projects. Until now it hasn’t been easy to retrofit WiFi speakers in a ceiling without connecting to a separate amplifier or running cables through walls. But Lithe Audio has created a fully-integrated design that is completely different from anything else currently available in this sector. The speakers are powered via the existing lighting circuit – so there’s no need for speaker cables or servers.
“We’re delighted to be working with Invision to distribute our innovative WiFi speakers to the broader CI market. Thanks to this partnership, custom installers across the UK will now have access to our easy-to-install, multi-room music streaming system that integrates seamlessly with Control4 home automation,” says Amit Ravat, co-founder of Lithe Audio.
The WiFi speakers were 2018 CEDIA* Award Finalists in the ‘Best Product’ Category for their excellent performance and pin sharp sound clarity. They are 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 WiFi ceiling speakers are also available in an IP44 bathroom version. They work together to seamlessly stream high quality audio from any audio service to a single, a selection or up to 30 speakers at once for full multi-room delivery. The App will save settings for individual zones or to play Party Mode (all speakers at once) for future streaming.
Designed by Lithe Audio’s team of specialist home electronic product designers, the frameless speakers are designed to ‘disappear’ into the ceiling, only protruding 3mm. The clever magnetic grille covers can be removed easily for cleaning or for replacement with a different coloured finish. The grilles can be painted to match the ceiling for a barely-there look.
