About
Audiovector
I COULD NOT FIND THE SPEAKER OF MY DREAMS, SO I DECIDED TO BUILD IT MYSELF. I founded Audiovector in 1979, at that time under the name of F3/LYD. At that time I had been in this business for 8 years, selling different brands of speakers. I was frustrated by the fact that some of the speakers I had sold, were able to reproduce some aspects of musical reproduction perfectly, but not all. Others were perfect at other aspects. There is one vital aspect which has remained entirely constant over my 40 years with loudspeaker development: The rigorous process of listening, listening, listening. To describe Audiovector's speakers in figures and statistics merely proves that they are world-class. But to actually listen is proof that it takes more than great technology to create something truly special. Ole Klifoth,Partner and Chief engineer, Audiovector

CRÈME DE LA CRÉME

The Arreté models are to Audiovector what AMG is to Mercedes, RS to Audi and M to BMW: Highly specialized and tuned versions of a great product.

ARRETÉ

Arreté is an old Greek symbol, which means: Being able to perform everything to the highest standards. This model is based on the
SR 1 Avantgarde, which was the original top model in the SR 1 range. In itself a fantastic speaker, this models inspired keen listeners to ask: Is it possible to improve the performance even further?

A TECHNICAL TOUR DE FORCE

Ole Klifoth rose to the challenge and went on a tour de force through virtually all aspects of optimization in the fields of drivers and cross-overs, driver/cabinet interaction, speaker-floor interaction, cryogenic treatment – and much more. A couple of years later, the Si 1 Avantgarde Arreté was born.

IMAGINE
Imagine being able to play music in high-end quality without having to rely on any other form of electronics, other than your actual source. Imagine simply using your iPhone, Android phone, iPad, server, CD player or laptop – whichever source is at hand. That is total freedom combined with exceptional sound quality.
 
FREEDOM
The Audiovector SR-series are available in either the traditional passive versions or with our easy to use Audiovector Discreet Technology built-in from the start. An easy upgrade from passive to Active Discreet is also available. The choice is, as always, completely yours.

STREAMING
You can either stream wirelessly to the Discreet versions of Audiovector’s speakers, or you can connect other sources directly to the DISCREET hub. 
As if that wasn’t enough, you can even connect your turntable via the built-in
analogue to digital converter. Wireless streaming can be utilised either through the latest hi-end Bluetooth technology or via Airplay through an external Airport Express.
 
DISCREET WITH NO DROP-OUTS
Our newly developed ADAC-technology (Audiovector Discreet Active Concept) represents our most advanced digital technology offering yet. No distortion, no jitter, no noise. Our Discreet amplifiers will be available for a wide range of Audiovector speakers – either built-in from the start or as an upgrade to your existing Audiovector speakers. 
 
SOURCES
This high-end audio solution requires nothing but a phone, tablet or a laptop, but your turntable and other sources can also be connected easily. And, of course, a pair of Audiovector Discreet speakers.

A SIMPLER SOLUTION DOES NOT EXIST

One pair of speakers, one small black box! This is all you need to be able to connect your favourite source and enjoy music reproduced at its finest quality. That is all.

TOTAL FLEXIBILITY WITH CONNECTIONS

You can connect any source - CD, turntable, streamer, Sonos, TV, a subwoofer, your phone, tablet or PC via Bluetooth or via Wi-Fi (via a small router).

TECHNOLOGY

We could explain for hours and hours about the complicated technology behind this, the simplest solution of all. The brightest engineers, the latest technology, total freedom of thought, creative inventions and a true environ- mentally friendly consumption, lie behind the ADC concept.

MATERIALS

Audiovector’s excellent acoustics of the passive speakers is the basis of the system. We have simply applied the ADC technology to our famous speaker models in order to mimic a passive system, using amplification costing in ex- cess of 15.000 Euro.

* NASA derived superfast chips with the ability to process and up-sample everything to 24 bit/ 192 kHz before it is transmitted to the speakers.
* Tefloncoated and cryogenically treated cables.
* Pulse modulation amplifiers with a damping factor well in excess of 1000.
* A total distortion which is app 30 dB lower than normal high end amplifiers
 

One of the key features of the Audiovector range is their ability to be upgraded without the need to actually change your entire loudspeaker. This has several benefits, as it allows you to keep the speaker, and therefore the sound you like, but offer an upgraded version of that. it is also much more cost effective, as you are keeping the main cabinet, and only changing other aspects of the speaker. 

Audiovector does all their upgrades directly in-house, in their factory in Denmark. All speakers are re-polished and inspected while they are in for the upgrade process. 

Some of the upgrades include: 

  • Upgraded Drive Units
  • Upgraded Crossover
  • Internal Damping & Suspension

Each Audiovector model has its own list of upgrades, if you require further information or more details, please get in touch and one of our helpful staff will offer a full breakdown of each of the upgrade packages.

The finishes listed are Audiovectors "standard" finishes, however, they do offer a range of custom finishes at an additional cost. This allows customers to choose any automotive finish, and they can have their speakers customised in this colour. Please contact us for exact costs and delivery times.


AUDIOVECTOR SR 1 AVANTGARDE ARRETÉ
Hifi+, June 2016
By Alan Sircom

"I’m really, really impressed by the Audiovector SR1 Avantgarde Arreté. They do so many things right, and so little wrong, that you could easily put a ‘1’ in front of the price and people would still stand by its sound. They are materially, tonally, physically, and most significantly financially different from my Wilson Duette IIs, but the Audiovector is the first standmount loudspeaker priced considerably below those Wilsons that gave them a serious challenge. That’s how good the SR1 Avantgarde Arreté can be. Highly recommended – you bet!"
