Based in Troon, ART (Acoustic Reproduction Technology) is a Scottish company founded in 1998 by Derek and Ramsay Dunlop. Having spent their early careers working with their family's highly respected Systemdek Turntables business, the brothers brought their audio technology experience, master craftsmanship and a high degree of musical appreciation to the loudspeaker industry.
Loudspeaker research and design is, of course, a constant journey and along the way the Dunlop brothers have developed their own reference speaker line under the DRAM company name.
We are very happy to have the new ART Loudspeaker Emotion Monitor on demonstration in store. These large monitors are one of the most musical speakers we have come across. They allow the Ayon Scorpio amplifier to sing in either pentode or triode mode as they present a very easy load to the amplifier, despite their size. The top port allows for easy placement close to a wall if need be, although they perform just as well in open space. With the all digital power DAC from Lyngdorf the Emotion monitors lose none of their emotive sound but gain epic bass depth and control all round an excellent pair of speakers. We are very excited to hear the upgraded version with a diamond diaphragm when they drop them off next month.
Not satisfied with just the one pair of excellent Art Loudspeakers, we also have the all new Stiletto 6 V2 on demonstration. This very capable pair of floorstanding speakers have a similar voice to the Emotion Monitor and are well worth a listen for the audiophile that needs a complete solution without the option to upgrade to a diamond diaphragm tweeter.
Please contact for a demonstration.
