New York - Artison, a high-end audio technology firm, and
Osram Sylvania, a lighting company, debuted MusicLites today, an electronics
product that combines a wireless, high-fidelity speaker with a state-of-the-art
MusicLites, which can be powered by plugging into any
standard light socket, is now available to consumers and businesses across U.S.
"We are thrilled to launch a truly wireless audio system
through our partnership with Osram Sylvania," said Arttison CEO Cary
"MusicLites' combination of light and sound allows anyone to
enjoy an enhanced home audio experience in any area with the ease of screwing
in a light bulb."
MusicLites allows consumers and businesses to create a
high-end audio and lighting experience without wires almost anywhere they have
light sockets. The light socket powers both the speaker and the light. The
speakers and audio source communicate through a proprietary wireless
transmitter and receiver system, the companies said.
Each MusicLites' unit features a 10-watt LED light that puts
out the equivalent of a 65-watt reflector bulb. It also has a 70mm full-range
high-fidelity loudspeaker and a wireless audio receiver. A 2.4GHZ wireless
transmitter can be connected to just about any audio source, including stereos,
televisions, computers, iPods, iPads and smartphones, to transmit a signal to
the MusicLites speakers.
MusicLites fit into 4-, 5- or 6-inch recessed
lighting cans. Each MusicLites kit contains two 3.8- by 5.3-inch modules and a
remote that can dim the lights and raise or lower the audio, the companies
As many as five zones with up to 12 MusicLites in each zone
can be tied together in a single network, creating a scalable lighting and
audio system. MusicLites also are water-resistant.
MusicLites is commercially available through select audio
dealers this month. For more information and locations, visit www.musiclites.com.
