Lithe Audio Debuts
All-in-One Speakers
to U.S. Market
With built-in amplification and Bluetooth
and Wi-Fi versions available, U.K.-based
company shows ceiling speakers,
landscape models and subwoofers at
CEDIA Expo. By Arlen Schweiger
HAVE YOU EVER wished
you could install an in-ceiling
loudspeaker and not worry
about running wire to drive
it and connect sources?
Well, let us introduce you
to Surrey, U.K., brand Lithe
Audio, an innovative speaker
company that makes all-inone
products that allow you
to do just that.
Amit Ravat, co-founder
and director of Lithe Audio,
debuted the brand to the
U.S. market at CEDIA Expo
2022 in Dallas recently. He
was excited to show off the
all-in-one aspect of the powered
speakers, which have
built-in support Bluetooth,
Apple AirPlay 2 and Google
Chromecast, depending on
the model.
" We're basically an all-inone
ceiling speaker company
but we're slowly diversifying
into other products, " Ravat
says. " We were founded
only five years ago, so we're
not an old and established
company, but that doesn't
mean we don't know what

we're talking about.
" We're a team of designers
and engineers, we're really
passionate about toys and
tech ... I don' think we've
really grown up, we just really
enjoy those aspects of the
world I guess, " he chuckles.
Ravat notes fellow
co-founder Wesley Siu brings
an electrical engineering
background to the company,
and with the rest of the team
is no stranger to innovation.
" We've done projects like
laser projection systems for
planetariums to designing
kettles, toasters, coffee
machines, to light switches,
plug sockets and now we're
in the world of AV and audio
is where we're at. "
The company offers Bluetooth
and Wi-Fi versions of
ceiling speakers, landscape/
garden speakers and a wireless
Micro Subwoofer, which
could very well have been
the tiniest sub at CEDIA
Expo 2022.
The Pro Series models
offer PoE++ and WiSA

(Wireless Speaker and
Audio Association) technology
bolt-on modules give
the speakers installation
flexibility for multiroom and
single-room home theater
setups, with Dolby Atmos
capabilities.
He notes the simple install,
audio selection and durability
of the speaker make them
ideal in rooms like kitchens
and bathrooms, or adding
outdoor audio zones.
" That has got absolutely
everything you need, " he
says, pointing out the amplification
and connectivity
embedded in the speaker.
" What that means is this is
now no different than fitting
a spotlight in your ceiling.
You can cut a hole, add
power from any lighting circuit
or PoE, we have various
options, and once you've
done that you just stream
audio directly to it. From an
integrator's view it just really
simplifies the installation. "
For areas that can't
accommodate a traditional
ceiling speaker, Lithe Audio's
new IO1 speaker offers the
same technology as the
company's Wi-Fi Multi-Room
Ceiling Speaker but can
be installed in a number of
configurations - including
vertically or horizontally on
walls, flush-mount in corners,
mounted on a yard stake,
and more - for indoor or
outdoor spaces.
For audio streaming in
outdoor areas, the company's
waterproof, IP56-rated
Bluetooth Garden Rock
Speaker is designed to withstand
the elements while
blending in seamlessly with
landscaping.
Lithe Audio is represented
in the U.S. market by Pete
Baker's The BIG Corp, a
global, full-service consumer
electronics sales rep firm and
consulting agency.
