Ferrari-Inspired, Wireless Executive Audio System
David Wiener Ventures (DWV), a design and innovation studio that creates some of the world’s most exclusive and prestigious products, has introduced the Art.Engine, a Ferrari-inspired audio engineering effort to create a completely new concept in audio, and an exciting listening experience.
Art.Engine is a complete stereo music system that combines twin-speaker arrays, wireless signal input, and digital electronics in an elegant tower that is unobtrusive yet impossible to ignore. Designed for use at home, in the office or on a yacht, Art.Engine has been licensed by Ferrari S.p.A. and produced in a limited edition of 1,000 as a guarantee of quality and exclusivity.
“Art.Engine’s development demanded highly advanced audio technology, performance, style and construction methods, and was inspired throughout by Ferrari engineering and standards,” said David Wiener, DWV President and CEO.
Standing 47 inches tall, 16 wide and only 6 inches deep, Art.Engine is a timeless electronic sculpture that quickly becomes the focal point of any space it inhabits. Its wireless digital receiver instantly accepts music files and Web-based radio from any 802.11 WiFi-enabled PC or Mac, while a hardwire input accommodates CD players, iPods, satellite radios, and other devices, so owners can listen to anything they or guests might want to plug in.
Art.Engine’s proprietary signal management technology provides accurate stereo imaging to any location in a room, eliminating the need for separated speakers and liberating owners to place the Art.Engine anywhere in a room.
The Art.Engine tower houses a bi-amplified, stereo system with twin integrated line-source speakers, amplifiers, DSP signal management, and the wireless receiver. Each of its two channels hosts eight three-inch DWV carbon-fiber, high-performance low-to-midrange woofers, and one 1.1-inch ScanSpeak soft-dome tweeter with a Neodymium motor — all magnetically shielded, and matched as a group for the truest, most consistent sound.
Also included are four 200-Watt discrete digital amplifier modules, RCA jacks for wired input, and LEDs for system status. The Ferrari-inspired paint finish is available in Rosso Corsa red, Argento Nurburgring silver, Grigio Silverstone grey, and Nero black, plus custom colors on request.
The Art.Engine is available in the U.S. for $20,000.
