The first WiSA certified Atmos system
The built-in ceiling speaker of the British company Lithe Audio Pro series is complemented by a 60-watt D-class amplifier with a digital unit. All these electronics can be powered not only from the network, but also via an Ethernet cable with PoE++ support (you will need an additional module for this). In addition to the usual audio functions, the novelty is ready to become a good option for the signal of Atmos channels.
The Ethernet input, which is equipped with acoustics, is supplemented with dual-band Wi-Fi. With them, the novelty supports AirPlay2, Google Chromecast, Alexa, Bluetooth and Spotify Connect. You can stream with Tidal, Deezer, and Amazon Music.
In addition, Lithe Audio Pro is ready to receive and transmit the signal via WiSA wireless technology. In this way, the speaker becomes part of distributed multiroom systems or spatial sound. Another plug-in is provided for this purpose.
To control the new product, Lithe Audio has a special application — system configuration, equalizer and delay settings are available in it. The same application is used to update firmware and driver compatibility with automation platforms including Control4, Fibaro, and Loxone.
The Lithe Audio Pro features a 6.5-inch midrange and bass speaker with a fabric composite diffuser and a 0.75-inch tweeter with a titanium diaphragm. The speaker works out the frequency range of 55 Hz-20 kHz.
The European price of Lithe Audio Pro is 490 euros.
