Art.Engine - Ferrari Art.Engine Audio System - last 1 of 999

Our Price: £14,995.00

Description

As an extremely limited edition of only 999 pieces available worldwide,
Art.Engine is Ferrari's entry into the world of home audio and the single
most exclusive licensed product ever to bear the Ferrari name.

The Pleasure Home are sad to advise that production has now ceased and we believe that we have the final collector's piece remaining in the world. It is finished in beautiful lacquered Ferrari Grigio Silverstone Grey. Interestingly it is marked '1 of 999' on the aluminium faceplate on the rear of the unit!

Art.Engine is a complete system - the speakers, four 200 watt digital amps,
DSP, wireless receiver and other electronics are built into the single
tower. The only necessary wire is the power cord which can be discretely
hidden behind Art.Engine. The primary signal input is the wireless
streaming of music files or radio via iTunes running on any computer (PC or
Mac) with wireless functionality.

In addition, any CD player, iPod, or other input source may be connected to
Art.Engine's external RCA jacks with the included audio cables.

Specification

Each Art.Engine was hand-made to order.

Art.Engine was available in four different Ferrari colours. It was painted
with actual Ferrari paint and clear coat. The colours were:

Rosso Corsa Red
Argento Nurburgring
Silver
Grigio Silverstone Grey
Metallic Nero Black

Custom colours may be ordered for an extra charge, but they may only be
Ferrari colours.

Art.Engine is priced in the U.K. at 16,995 including VAT.

"The bass sounds tight and well-defined. I hear loads of detail-percussion,
in particular, sounds remarkable, present and clear. But unlike many audio
systems with exceptionally detailed sound, the Art.Engine always sounds
smooth, never edgy or fatiguing."
- Brent Butterworth, Editor-In-Chief, Home Entertainment Magazine

"One look at the Art.Engine and you know you're confronting a music system
like no other ever created."
- Brent Butterworth, Editor-In-Chief, Home Entertainment Magazine

"Important to what I perceive as the Art.Engine's intended audience is that
the system plays loud. Crank it up and it neither distorts nor changes
timbre.The Art.Engine embodies what every high-end product should: dazzling looks,dependable performance, and a simplicity of design and operation." "They got this one right-it deserves to wear the Ferrari logo."
- Brent Butterworth, Editor-In-Chief, Home Entertainment Magazine
