Power It - Pair It - Play It. The Lithe Audio Bluetooth Ceiling Speaker quite simply hits the nail on the head.
An audio solution that BuyCleverStuff have, in the past, struggled to find an answer for; this standalone, wireless, Bluetooth ceiling speaker, that only needs power and your device, to deliver outstanding audio to fill any room in your home with ease.
Introducing the Lithe Audio Bluetooth Wireless Ceiling Speaker
We've been on the lookout at BuyCleverStuff for a while for a unit such as this, that we could be truly confident in - and this impressive 6.5" ceiling speaker, with built-in Bluetooth amplifier, finished with a smart slimline grille (which can be painted over to match your ceiling colour) ticks all the boxes.
The chief designer at Lithe Audio shares the same ethos as us, saying: "We work forwards from what our customer needs are, and not backwards from what the technology allows. Everything we sell must be simple and intuitive to use for everyone, from the developer to the whole family."
Let's give you a small taster of what to expect - and then we'll dig a little deeper - watch below:
So where do we start?
50 watts RMS of power. Check.
Kevlar woven woofer cone. Check.
1.2" titanium directional tweeter. Check.
That's a fair amount of power for a single speaker, but with the lightweight, strengthened Kevlar material, supported by a neat rubber-edged surround, the Lithe Audio Bluetooth Ceiling Speaker handles even the heaviest of bass should you push it.
Whilst at the other extreme, the finer details are there to be heard, just as Lithe Audio state, with "pin sharp clarity".
We really could try and expand on that statement, but we just can't - this speaker will speak for itself when installed.
Talking of installation, one question we at BuyCleverStuff are always asked is how easy is it to install, and will an electrician be needed to install it?
With the Lithe Audio Bluetooth Ceiling Speaker, you are supplied with transformer and mains plug, and if you want just a simple installation, that is all you need plus a hole cut out in your ceiling.
If you are not confident with this though and have an electrician installing lights already, it can be a lot easier to leave a professional to install it, and it won't take long to put in place.
It is also able to be connected to a lighting circuit if you wish, but again that would be best left to an electrician to install.
Another great feature is its ability to connect to an external source, such as your television for example. You will require connection of an RCA lead for this into the speaker, but it will still deliver the same high-level audio quality.
Why stop at just one speaker though? If you want a second speaker for those slightly larger rooms to really fill it with audio, a passive speaker (same specification minus Bluetooth) can be run alongside with an inclusive five metres of speaker cable to connect them together.
The 3mm thin discreet magnetically attached grille completes the speaker to give it a neat finish which, if painted over, will be almost invisible within whatever room you install - whether it's in your lounge, kitchen or bedrooms.
We haven't mentioned bathrooms there, and there's a very good reason.
There's an IP44 rated version of the Lithe Audio Bluetooth Ceiling Speaker, designed with this environment in mind, featuring a polypropylene woofer cone instead of woven Kevlar, so your speaker will withstand any splashes and moisture over time, yet still produce fantastic audio.
All of the above points we can vouch for, because as we do with any product that we have available on our website, we rigorously test it in house before we decide to offer it to our customers.
Amit Ravat, co-founder of Lithe Audio, explained the journey that he, and co-founder, Wesley Siu, undertook in producing this range of Bluetooth Ceiling Speakers: "We brought the product to market to solve a problem we encountered, we are both avid music listeners and in researching the ceiling speakers for our own homes, found it was virtually impossible to retrofit ceiling speakers in a existing property without major cost or disruption.
"All other systems required speaker cables run though walls or additional amplifiers or transmitters installing. Neither of which we wanted or could physically do.
"It quickly dawned on us in a world of digital streaming and Bluetooth wireless connectivity and our experience of lighting though our other company, Retrotouch, there was a simple solution; fully integrated Bluetooth wireless ceiling speakers with the amplifiers, transmitters and high quality speaker in a single,easy to install unit.
"We quickly realised our product would enable ceiling speakers to be fitted in properties new and old at an affordable cost and with quick and mess-free installation. Simply put, customers just 'Power It, Pair It, Play It'!"
