Yamaha Corporation announces that its lighting audio systems, Relit LSX-70 and LSX-170, have been awarded the internationally prestigious German iF Design Award.

The Relit LSX-70 and LSX-170, which were selected for this year's award, combine wireless audio reproduction with room illumination. The LSX-70 is the lighter model, weighing about 950 grams with a rechargeable battery, and it has a compact cylindrical shape. It can be carried easily from the living room to the study, bedroom, and elsewhere. The LSX-170, which has a solid, circular base intended for placement in one location, emits a beautiful, mysterious glow, and its refined body projects a solid presence into the room.

Both lighting audio systems enable users to easily listen to musical content transmitted via Bluetooth® wireless systems from their smartphones, tablet computers, and other sources. With a dedicated application, users can adjust the sound quality and set timers for the music as well as lighting functions from their mobile device screens. In addition, the speakers installed in these systems offer 360-degree sound projection, thus enabling them to blend into daily life scenes and bring soothing music and luxurious lighting at mealtime and for relaxation.

These systems incorporate the four fundamental principles of Yamaha's design: products that customers will use frequently for a long time, a gradual increase in value, a fundamentally simple design, and a balance between carefully selected materials and a beautiful finish.

Comment from the Designer

These lighting audio systems offer new 360-degree sound projection features that can create an atmosphere through combining light and sound. I hope that users of these systems will enjoy the expansive ambience created by the blending of sound and light into room interiors.
