Art.Engine’s wireless signal input system takes advanced audio performance to a new level of ease. Simply plug the Art.Engine into an electrical outlet and the digital receiver technology built into the Art.Engine will instantly take music files and web radio beamed from any PC or Mac computer and turn it into an exceptional listening experience.
Bi-amplified, stereo audio system with twin integrated line-source loudspeakers, amplifiers, DSP signal management and digital wireless receiver. Eight custom DWV 75mm (3″) carbon fiber high-performance mid/woofers and one ScanSpeak custom 28mm (1.1″) soft dome tweeter are used in each of the two channels. At 120 cm (47″) tall and 41 cm (16″) wide, the Art.Engine is a floor standing audio system designed to be placed against the wall. Ideal for home and office use to replace a conventional HiFi system.
Primary signal input is wireless streaming of music files or radio via iTunes (free downloadable software) running on any computer (PC or Mac) with wireless functionality. The Art.Engine may also be used with conventional line level sources such as CD players, tuners, iPods and most other portable devices, via RCA input jacks (accessory cables included).
