Now for something a bit different. This is something we saw at the Gardnen Press Event - a rock with a bluetooth speaker. We thought it would be a novel idea for the summer and would be good for a party.
This is what the manufacturer has to say ab out it:
Lithe Audio – the innovative UK AV brand - is bringing ‘instant’ high tech sound to your garden with a simple plug-in all-in-one Bluetooth speaker designed to fit discreetly into your surroundings while delivering exceptional sound quality. The Bluetooth speaker – designed and handmade to look like a genuine rock - delivers a hassle-free soundtrack to the summer with just one tap.
Unlike other garden speakers that require drilling and cabling from inside the house, and a separate amplifier, the Lithe Audio rock speaker has the amp built in and can be simply plugged in to an outdoor socket – and play! This unique rock speaker is perfect for entertaining outdoors. Combining high quality, pin-sharp audio with exceptional design, this is the must have outdoor speaker solution for the summer. Just power up, connect your device, stream off Spotify, You Tube or your personal playlists, and let the good times rock.
Housed in tough, resilient IP56 fibreglass in a grey-and-white speckled finish, the speaker is exceptionally rugged to withstand the outdoors. And of course, it’s fully waterproof – making it ideal for English Summers! “We’re excited to bring to the market an all-in-one, plug-and-play speaker that has the amplifier and Bluetooth contained in one weatherproof unit,” says Amit Ravat, managing director for Lithe Audio: “It’s the perfect solution for instant summer fun - and with the exceptional sound quality, it will really make your summer parties and BBQs rock!”
The Lithe Audio rock garden speaker is available in one of two speaker sets: The single rock speaker comes with five metres of low voltage power cable and outdoor transformer with plug. It retails at £269.99. The pair of rock speakers – ideal for larger gardens - retail at £349 and come with 10m of additional outdoor speaker cable and weather-proof cable connectors.
The rock speaker will be available from 1st June from av4home.co.uk, buycleverstuff.co.uk, kitchenbathroomradio.co.uk, ceilingspeakers.co.uk. Contact Lithe Audio on 01293 922015 www.litheaudio.com for additional stockists.
