The lineup included the new Masterpiece LCR-DM, as well as Portrait LCR-DM and Sketch LCR-DM models. The loudspeakers all feature “Easy Match Custom Grilles” that are sold separately and shipped within 48 hours.

The new Masterpiece, Portrait and Sketch LCR-DMs will be available in September 2010.
Artison’s new attachable LCR-DM speakers deliver high fidelity performance audio with new driver technologies including Inverted Magnet Woofers for powerful and engaging audio. They function as seamless, nearly invisible additions to virtually any flat panel display.
The Masterpiece LCR-DM features leading-edge Curved Line Arrays utilizing eight 25 mm full range drivers. Curved Line Arrays combined with the Inverted Magnet Structure 5.5” Long Throw Kevlar Midrange/Woofers; provides a low crossover frequency from the woofer to the midrange of 800 Hz, keeping all drivers in piston mode and reducing distortion. The Curved Line Array design controls the vertical dispersion pattern of the speaker and provides a wide horizontal pattern. All of the advanced sonic technologies in the Masterpiece LCR-DM work together to deliver the powerful, crystal clear audio that defines the Artison Total Involvement Experience.
Artison’s Patented DualMono Center Channel Technology
All LCR-DM speakers includes all three front-channel speakers (Left, Right, Center) in two slim enclosures utilizing Artison’s patented DualMono Center Channel technology, which projects crisp clear dialog in the center of the screen rather than above or below the set. Side-firing Stage Tweeters widen the soundstage giving the listener a more powerful Home Theater experience.
Cary Christie, founder, President and CEO of Artison, noted: “Today’s flat panel TV owners are looking for a more engaging audio experience to complement their high technology video experience. They want cinema-like ‘home theater,’ and that means not just room-filling audio for special effects and music, but a system that brings everything together the way the director intended – with dialog coming from the center of the screen, where the actors’ voices are coming from. Our new LCR-DMs are intended to allow for true audio/video integration and state-of-the-art sound – a Total Involvement Experience.”
Artison’s new LCR-DM speakers are designed for ease of use, performance and aesthetics. Custom integrators simply attach the speakers to their televisions using Artison’s innovative Thin Universal Mounting Brackets, literally hiding them in plain sight.
