A Dream Come True

Ole Klifoth and his team at Audiovector have long desired reference speakers for their development studios from which all other speakers could be measured for their sound quality. With cost being no object, the only limits were those of their imagination and pure physics. And, true to the Audiovector design philosophy, even these in-house speakers would never compromise in terms of aesthetics.

Many, many years after this dream was first mooted, the R 11s were born. There have simply never been speakers like them. Nothing is compromised; everything is designed to produce the ultimate listening experience. Since installing them, every new consumer speaker developed by Audiovector has benefitted incalculably from both the engineering process and by being able, for the first time, to compare sound from speakers of this quality.

In essence, the R 11 Arreté is the pinnacle of 30 years research, engineering and most of all, listening experience. Nothing is spared in either technology or finishing, from titanium to aircraft-grade aluminium. Bipolar radiation characteristics achieve a wholly superior relationship between the sound and the room. The eight ultra-linear subwoofer drivers, stunningly arranged at the rear, give the sound an effortless weight, while never compromising on appearance. The teardrop shape is the core principle of the design, allowing the non-parallel lines to eliminate all internal resonance, and reducing the need for excessive damping - also aided by the very stiff and inert cabinet.

While it was never intended for the R 11s to be produced for the consumer market, it nevertheless seemed absurd that a company striving to give its customers the ultimate listening experience would not share this milestone in speaker evolution. The R 11s can now be built to order, with bespoke finishing options, to those who wish for the very best you can get.

“It was a dream come true to concentrate more than 35 years of experience and build the R 11 Arreté without limitations to materials and costs. The guideline for the R 11 Arreté project was: Absolute Perfection. Zero Compromise”.
