Delivering High-Quality Audio While Dramatically Simplifying Installations in Any Space, the IP66-Rated Speaker Requires Only a Power Source and Offers Six Mounting Methods
LONDON — Sept. 28, 2022 — Lithe Audio, a U.K.-based manufacturer of wireless audio systems for residential and commercial installations, today announced that the company’s new iO1 all-in-one wireless indoor and outdoor speaker will be making its world debut at CEDIA Expo 2022, taking place Sept. 29 to Oct. 1 in Dallas. Offering a variety of mounting configurations to meet the needs of any space, the iO1 features a high-efficiency amplifier, wired and wireless connectivity options, and high-quality components in one weather-resistant, IP66-rated speaker with an aluminum grille that requires only a power source for installation.
Designed for areas that require high-end audio quality but can’t accommodate a traditional ceiling speaker, the iO1 can be installed in six mounting configurations — on-wall, in-corner, on-corner, ground spike, countertop, and pendant. Featuring dual full-range woofers, titanium tweeters, and two 60W RMS Class D amplifiers, the speaker delivers full high-resolution audio at 192 kHz, 24 bits in these spaces. For connectivity, the iO1 supports both Bluetooth 5.0 and 5GHz and 2.4GHz Wi-Fi, while embedded AirPlay 2 and Chromecast technologies enable the simple creation of distributed audio systems.
Available in black and white, the speaker features an optical input and two Ethernet ports — one for a hardwired network connection, and one for daisy chaining another speaker. The iO1 can be powered by a standard electrical outlet or existing lighting circuit; is available with drivers for Control4, Elan, KNX, and Loxone control systems; and provides support for Alexa and OK Google for convenient voice control.
“With its multiple mounting methods, variety of connectivity options, and simple installation, the iO1 offers integrators a single product to accommodate virtually any project — and it does so without sacrificing audio quality,” said Amit Ravat, managing director at Lithe Audio. “With the iO1, it couldn’t be easier to create systems of any size — from a single speaker hanging over the patio table to a whole home audio system both indoors and outdoors. We can’t wait for its debut at CEDIA, so be sure to stop by our booth for a sneak peek.”
At CEDIA Expo 2022, Lithe Audio’s iO1 will be on display in booth 29093. The all-in-one indoor and outdoor speaker will begin shipping in Q1 2023. More information on Lithe Audio and its wireless audio systems is available at https://www.litheaudio.com/.
