SoundArt Canvas Art Speakers - SoundArt UK has unveiled its leading edge electronics solution that brings together sound and photography providing, 'Sound you can see'.
SoundArt is a canvas speaker system designed to show off your choice of photography and plays almost any sound source - from an iPod to a professional audio visual system.
The speakers set a new standard in sound, delivering a stunning, natural audio performance through canvas art. SoundArt consists of the owners choice of canvas print, Distributed Mode Loudspeakers which sit in the frame and a powerful sub woofer.
Fully customisable and using exclusive British technology, SoundArt speakers integrate professional photography into today's contemporary interiors.
Unlike thicker, conventional box speakers, which essentially push air, SoundArt speakers generate a natural acoustic sound through vibration, in the same way a note from a solo violin fills a concert hall, explained SoundArt UKs MD, Jeremy Curtis, adding, With SoundArt, there are no moving parts, the canvass becomes an integral part of the sound board.
Theres no complicated set-up, just hang on your wall, plug in your music source and enjoy the space around you. Almost any audio source can be played through it - your Hi-Fi, MP3 player, PC, DVD, CD or the output on your AV system.
SoundArt is available through a nationwide network of stockists, including photographic studios, interior designers and AV specialists.
SoundArt retails from 1,999.00

The amplifier sections (bass - mid/top) although they share the same toroidal transformer they have separate rectifiers and smoothing. This is important as this prevents a large power drain due to a heavy bass beat causing the dynamics of the mid / top being affected. The bass amp is a discrete MOS-FET amplifier and the Mid /Top are audio ICs.
