The casing might change shape occasionally, but nothing massively different has happened to speakers in a long, long time. Which is why SoundArt’s Canvas Art Speakers stand out so much from the rest of the crowd.
SoundArt is a canvas speaker system designed to show off your choice of art or photography, whilst playing your tunes from any sound source. I’ve yet to hear them in action, but the maunfacturer claims they deliver "a stunning, natural audio performance" through the canvas. Or as natural as music through art can get.
The system consists of the owner’s choice of canvas print, Distributed Mode Loudspeakers (which sit in the frame) and a powerful sub woofer. There’s no complicated set-up, just hang on your wall, plug in your music source and enjoy the music – then watch the look on your friends’ faces as they try to work out where the music is coming from.
SoundArt is available now, retailing from around £2,000.
