Lithe Audio has launched its new iO1 all-in-one wireless speaker that can be used indoors and outdoors in six different mounting configurations. With a powerful amplifier and connectivity all built in, this active surface-mount speaker is easy to install and just requires power from a standard or outdoor electrical outlet or existing lighting circuit to deliver premium audio quality. 

This versatile weather-resistant IPX6-rated unit offers the option of wireless or data cable connection, with an optical input and two Ethernet ports. It features dual full-range woofers, titanium tweeters, and 100W RMS Power (two 50W) Class D Amplifiers, delivering full high-resolution audio at 192kHz, 24 bits.

Embedded with Airplay 2, Chromecast and Spotify Connect, it couldn’t be easier to create quality distributed audio. It’s also compatible with any other Airplay 2 or Chromecast speaker for multi-room or multi-area set-ups. The iO1 also features the latest Bluetooth technology and offers voice control with Google Home and Alexa.

Designed for areas that require high-end audio quality but can’t accommodate a traditional ceiling speaker, the iO1 can easily be installed in six different orientations – on-wall, in-corner, on-corner, ground spike, countertop, and pendent.

The built-in high-efficiency amplifier and high quality components are covered by an attractive aluminium grille in a choice of white or black finish.

“We’re excited to be launching this speaker as there’s nothing like it currently on the market,” says Amit Ravat, MD and co-founder of Lithe Audio. “It’s an active, all-in-one solution that’s configured for all the wireless protocols, easy to use and install in a choice of six configurations – and of course it’s weatherproof. It couldn’t be simpler – or more sophisticated.”

“We’re particularly excited about the versatility of the speaker for different markets – from consumers who love the latest smart home and home entertainment tech, to the hospitality and catering, retail and outdoor audio markets,” concludes Amit.
