ART

"...they’re one of the best shoe-box-speaker met in my career and one of the most desirable in absolute terms, they’re able today to rewrite the classification of the best top-mini of all time regardless of price. Deliciously musical and magnificent to listen disc after disc." – Gianfranco Machelli, AudioReview

Wikipedia: "Art is a diverse range of human activity and its resulting product that involves creative or imaginative talent generally expressive of technical proficiency, beauty, emotional power, or conceptual ideas"

Our ART speakers are indeed artful in many ways; they seamlessly blend simplicity and beauty with evocative musicality and exceptional precision. Although they are bookshelf-sized speakers, their sound is far beyond their size or price categories. In fact, it always was. This 4th generation is now better than ever!

The form factor is the same, but they are completely new loudspeakers with the spirit of their predecessors. Not much was to be refined, but this was a challenge which took us years! We have fundamentally changed the bass reflex principle, enlarged the membrane surfaces, reinforced the magnet systems, stiffened the cabinets accordingly, and meticulously adjusted the crossovers. These are true reference loudspeakers. With ocean-deep bass, the finest details, a soundstage as if carved in stone, and exceptional maximum levels, they also offer complete tonal balance."

"The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls." - Pablo Picasso
