Lithe Audio reimagines home cinema with AVR-free and wireless system

Lithe Audio has created a new immersive home cinema experience to enjoy indoors or outdoors thanks to the elimination of an AVR or speaker wires.

This has been made possible through the introduction of the WiSA-enabled Lithe Audio Wireless Cinema Hub and WiSA-enabled Lithe Audio Cinema Subwoofer with 8-in driver and premium amplifier.

Ideal for customers who do not want or have space for a dedicated cinema room, the new system can be discreetly installed to deliver a fully flexible and immersive experience thanks to a seamless connection to Lithe Audio WiSA-certified ceiling and on-wall speakers, such as the Pro ceiling speakers or new WiSA iO1 indoor/outdoor speaker.

Cinema Hub

The WiSA-enabled Wireless Cinema Hub is a powerful device combining the best digital and analogue audio inputs for wireless streaming and video via HDMI inputs into one compact media unit.

The Hub allows users to connect any audio and video components, such as a TV, DVD player, gaming console, and control them with a single remote.

Users can connect wirelessly to any WiSA-certified speaker to amplify the signal, delivering powerful hi-fi sound for a home cinema system without cables. The Hub can be used as a wireless digital AVR with wirelessly connected speakers via WiSA for less low latency playback without the need to run cables to speakers back to racks or wired AVR.

Multiple wireless streaming services can be accessed via AirPlay 2, Chromecast, Bluetooth and Spotify.

The system is fully scalable from a 2.1 setup to a full 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos setup with a mix of iO1 speakers and Pro series ceiling speakers. Any combination of eight channels with up to 30 stacked speakers is possible. The Hub is compatible with Wireless Dolby Atmos via WiSA connectivity, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digtial+ / Dolby True HD and Dolby Atmos Virtual.

Cinema Subwoofer

The Lithe Audio WiSA Subwoofer is engineered with an 8-in driver and a premium amplifier for a robust, clear audio performance. Thanks to Lithe Audio technology, the subwoofer delivers rich, distortion-free bass.

Its advanced crossover system is meticulously designed to focus solely on the lowest frequencies.

The Subwoofer can be hardwired to any traditional wired AVR via the sub-out port for use as a traditional active subwoofer. For a setup free of wires or cables, the Subwoofer can wirelessly connect to any WiSA HT cinema or music system.

The line-out port allows for multiple stacking of subs for deeper and richer bass. An optional wall mount kit is available for fixing to a wall.

Speaking of the new wireless system as a whole, Lithe Audio’s director, Amit Ravat, said: “This is a game-changing solution that wirelessly delivers a discreet yet fully immersive room-filling media experience for movies, gaming or music in the home.”

“The team at Lithe Audio continues to innovate and lead with amazing audio solutions that bring powerful performances, elegant design, and simplicity of installation to anyone seeking amazing home entertainment experiences,” added Tony Ostrom, WiSA Association president. “We are very excited to be the technology driving the high-quality wireless audio connectivity and performance of this great solution from our friends at Lithe Audio.”

From 3.1, 5.1 and 7.1 setups to 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos setups, Lithe Audio offer a range of home cinema speaker bundles, with prices starting at £1,284.
