Lithe Audio has announced the European debut for the iO1 All-in-One Wireless Indoor and Outdoor Speaker at ISE 2023, see it on Stand #2E150.
Designed to deliver high-quality audio while dramatically simplifying installations in any space, the ip66-rated speaker requires only a power source and offers six mounting methods, explains the maker.
Lithe Audio, the UK manufacturer of wireless audio systems, is first out of the blocks this year in the residential space with ISE news, revealing it will be showing its new iO1 all-in-one wireless indoor and outdoor speaker at ISE 2023. 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 aluminium 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 2 x 60W RMS Class D amplifiers, it delivers full high-resolution audio at 192 kHz, 24 bits in these spaces. The iO1 supports both Bluetooth 5.0 and 5GHz and 2.4GHz WiFi. Embedded AirPlay 2 and Chromecast technologies enable the simple creation of distributed audio systems.
The speaker features an optical input and two Ethernet ports and can be powered by a standard electrical outlet or existing lighting circuit. Installers will be glad to hear the speaker is available with drivers for Control4, Elan, KNX, and Loxone control systems; and supports Alexa and OK Google for convenient voice control.
