Audiovector R1 Arrete

The R1 Series delivers a speedy response with great detail and dynamics. The design handles of percussions and bass notes easy in a clean, nimble and natural way. These 2-way, rear-ported standmount speakers, use a non-parallel tear drop design to minimise internal standing waves. Using concepts derived from their larger siblings, the R6 & R3 models, the R1 Series delivers a precise soundstage with a sense of power and punch that belies their size. These little wonders leave the listener wanting more.

In order to take full advantage of the Audiovector tweeters and the hand assembled mid/bass drivers made with Aramid Composite membranes, the front baffle is narrow. The result is a smooth, precise sound diffusion – an ‘out of the box’ sound that keeps unwanted diffraction distortion to an absolute minimum.

The R1 Series is available in three tiered levels, Signature, Avantgarde and Arrete. Each progressive iteration builds on the former to achieve even greater levels of detail, insight and resolve, providing the listener with a perfect choice of price and performance. Better still, Audiovectors unique loudspeaker upgrade path allows any owner to upgrade their existing design to the next tier up, as and when they require.

The top tier R1 Arrete also introduces ‘Freedom’, a new and revolutionary grounding technology, which addresses the movement induced distortion of and between the drive units in a loudspeaker. The currents running between the chassis are being processed and dealt with through a new separate crossover, which routes the signal to the ground terminal of your wall socket or your grounded mains distribution unit. Contrary to conventional knowledge, these currencies cause coloration and distortion between the drive units. By balancing and filtering these through a dedicated separate filter and by offering the possibility of connecting the speakers to earth/ground, we achieve a clean, very accurate, significantly more realistic sound with a low noise floor.

Standard finishes include silk white, black oak, Italian walnut and African rosewood, but custom RAL and automotive finishes are available on request. Matching Audiovector speaker stands are also available and come in a matching gunmetal grey finish.
