The Artison Protrait LCR is a mountable speaker system consisting of Left, Center, and Right in two cabinets. These are not the super sluim models, so best used on older plasmas or LCD televsions. They CAN be used on slim panels IF you are using an articualting arm mount, but mounts have to be reversed. It's a bit of a pain to do, but can be done--we have done it several times.

"Artison’s Center Channel solution, places two speakers on either side of the monitor that both produce the monaural Center Channel signal. The dual speaker approach places the apparent source of the sound in the center of the picture where it belongs and eliminates the cumbersome box that usually sits above or below the TV. Artison has created a left and right speaker that contains the discrete Center Channel speakers. DualMono integrates aesthetics without compromising performance for home theater applications that utilize the new flat panel Plasma or LCD Displays."

This means that each LCR has two independent driver complements, each of which consists of a 4.5-inch Kevlar midbass driver and a 1-inch soft-dome Vifa tweeter. One driver complement handles front-channel duties, while the other handles center-channel duties. Each has its own binding posts and requires its own input. Supplied cables link the center-channel posts on the two LCRs so that only one center-channel signal is required from the amp.

Each LCR has a side-mounted tweeter that's designed to expand the soundstage beyond the speakers' physical location (which is obviously somewhat close together), as well as a center-channel presence control that allows you to adjust its output based on the room's relative reflectivity. Rear-panel switches control both. The LCR's aluminum cabinet measures a svelte 24 inches high by 6 wide by 3.5 deep. Optional stands to mount the LCRs as tower speakers are available.

Original MSRP: $1600 pr. Grilles for 50" Pioneer Plasma available also.

Box has been opened, but speakers have not been installed or used.
