Artison Sketch LCR Conclusion
The Artison Sketch speakers aren't inexpensive, until you consider the fact that they are really three speakers, not two. As Artison sells these speakers only to custom installers and not through retail stores - the value is even more apparent. Their sound is detailed and they can put forth a wide soundstage with good source material. While the midrange could sound a bit recessed at times, the Vifa tweeters had an incredible amount of detail and air. The truly amazing aspect of these speakers is their ability to be ordered to fit almost any size flat panel display. For an installer looking to create truly seamless look for their clients, there's simply no beating these speakers. Their intuitive design and ease of installation are simply icing on the cake.
