Art.Suono dock introduced
David Wiener Ventures has, as part of its David Weiner Collection, introduced on Wednesday the Art.Suono. The iPod speaker dock and its transmitter are made of machined aircraft-grade aluminum and feature carbon fiber accents as well as fine detailing and finishes that gives it an industrial look. The transmitter can also accommodate a computer source, CD player, satellite radio or any other MP3 player via its auxiliary input jack. It uses 2.4GHz wireless technology to then send the signal to compatible wireless speakers, while also utilizing the Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum technique for a strong, drop-out-free connection that aims to maintain signal quality.
Art.Suono is comprised of a 5lb transmitter and a compact receiver that can be hidden out of sight which houses proprietary DWC-APHEX circuitry that restores the depth of compressed music files and improves bass. The transmitter can be hooked up to two receivers so it could send signals to more than one music system in a home or office.
The receiver has a large Engine Start power button, Shift input switch, a concealed input jack and LED indicators in addition to the large, machined aluminum volume dial.
David Wiener Ventures has not announced a price or release date for the Art.Suono.
