Artison is all about melding speakers with home décor. No surprise, then, that it's now offering an in-wall surround speaker, the LRS-IW ($700 a pair). But this model has a couple of notable twists. First, it has a speaker enclosure that mounts inside the wall, so the wall cavity won't screw up its sound. Second, its hybrid-acoustic design functions as a direct-radiating monopole speaker in the midrange (for pinpoint sound effects) and as a more diffuse-sounding dipole in the treble (for convincing ambience). You can paint the 151/2 x 101/4-inch grille to match your walls.
