Taking the concept of an unrestricted sound with no loss of dynamics from less power input beyond the existing borders, the founder of Audiovector Ole Klifoth and his design team has now realized a dream of crafting a high-end reference speaker from which all other speakers could be measured for their sound quality. Defined to be the culmination of lifetime’s listening, the uncompromised speaker Audiovector R11 Arreté has been designed to produce the ultimate listening experience. Built upon a foundation of experience, the R11 Arreté in essence are the pinnacle of 30 years’ of research, engineering, and listening experience, which boasts ultra-advanced technology and finishing, from titanium to aircraft-grade aluminum and 24K carat gold plating for anti corrosion treatment.

Further, the teardrop shape is the design’s core principle, allowing the non-parallel lines to eliminate all internal resonance, and reduces the need for excessive damping. Notably, the ultra-strong carbon-fibers are also an important ingredient in the membranes. The corners screws too are made from magnetic stainless steel.
