The humble soundbar has come a long way since its introduction to the market more than a decade ago, its relevance expanding year on year.

The demand for high-quality audio to boost large screen TV performance, without compromising aesthetics, means your soundbar strategy has to be well thought out.

Thankfully, the combination of distributor Redline and Hi-Fi specialist Artison delivers on every level, making your customer feel they have a real soundbar superstar performing in their home.

Redline has been working with Artison since 2003. “Nearly 18 years of experience has taught us just how good this speaker brand is at creating high-performance audio products that are easy to install.”

Becoming part of the Savant family in 2017, the brand has continued to deliver top class products that support home cinema and music.
Combined with Redline’s in-house expertise and some innovative approaches from the brand, Artison doesn’t just deliver great audio, but installation and aesthetic advantages as well.

Custom Width Soundbar Dispatched In 48 Hours!

Creating a totally bespoke finish for customers puts your services on another level, so this special aspect of the Artison proposition is a real winner.

Artison’s soundbar models are available in 39-, 46-, 55-, and 65-inch sizes, making them easy to precisely match the TV they’re to be partnered with. It’s all part of the service, says Redline.

“All we need is the brand and model of the of the TV, going all the way up to 85in, and we can get started. Having a black or white, standard colour grille to perfectly match the dimensions of your TV dispatched to you within 48 hours, yes that is right, just 48 hours!”
The reason Redline can turn this around so fast is that it’s authorised by Artison to custom make the grilles here in the UK. So there’s no need to waste money with International Express Couriers!

“The soundbar will not just precisely match the width of the TV, but we also take extreme care to cut all the ‘Under TV’ details into the grille (IR, Badge, Button placement etc..) so it always fits flush with the bottom of the TV.”

Integrators should note that the soundbar can be mounted to either the wall or by fastening securely to the display’s VESA mounts, with Artison’s fully adjustable brackets. If the TV is fitted to an articulating bracket, the soundbar should attach to the TV so the sound moves with the picture.

There are other advantages here in terms of longevity. As customers change their TVs more often to keep up with all the latest image and smart technologies, resolutions and screen sizes, they do not need to replace the soundbar.

“Just let us know the new TV model and we can create a new grille that will deliver the same level of bespoke finish ‘without’ having to change the actual soundbar. A cost efficient and practical way to effortlessly upgrade. The brackets are fully re-usable,” says the distributor.

The opportunities do not end there however, all the Artison soundbar grilles can also come in a bespoke colour using the Redline Custom Colour Cloth Printing service. This adds some extra cost and time to the process, but of course does add that extra level of luxury and value.
The colour match printing normally takes 10 days from when the customer chooses a colour from the colour match book and the order is placed. With the present COVID 19 situation, delivery times have varied a little recently, so best to check on each order.

Before going ahead with the full-print Redline can also provide a sample print to double check the colour works in the space.

Choosing the right high-quality Artison soundbar

There are multiple configurations available.

“You can pick the smallest soundbar and we will make a long grille to meet the TVs dimensions or you can choose the longest soundbar that fits under the tv and we will make the grille to match from there. Selecting the widest one will offer the best performance. The reason for this is simple, a bigger cabinet has more air space behind the baffle. There are also higher quality tweeters on the larger models.”
The jump from 39- to 46-inches adds additional bass mid-drivers left and right. Going from 55- to 65-inches adds additional centre channel bass-mid drivers.

The wider the model, the wider the dispersion pattern offering a bigger sound to fill larger spaces.

“However, it’s important to remember that all the soundbars in the range offer excellent quality. They all feature end mounted tweeters to deliver HF audio at a 45 degree rear facing angle. This bounces off the back wall and adds to the image width produced by the forward firing drivers.”

But don’t forget, adds the distributor, even the smallest Soundbar 39 sounds phenomenal. So, if the project does not necessarily need the very highest audio quality, the space is small or there is a cost restriction, we can still create that custom grille to perfectly match the make and model of screen. A great way to still win the business when obstacles might mean the budget goes elsewhere!

Studio Sound Bars MADE TO ORDER

Other reasons to choose Artison soundbars include the build quality and attention to detail the brand always delivers. The entire range is constructed from high grade aluminium and not cheap MDF. All the models have carbon fibre bass-mid drivers and high-quality Vifa tweeters.

The audio inputs centred at the rear of the product for easy wire routing and connection and the gold-plated spring connectors ensure a secure connection that will last for the life of the installation.

“No repeat visits that eat into margin here.”

The message is clear: for overall audio performance and aesthetic agility, choose Artison and Redline! For more, click here.
