The R 1 Series delivers a speedy response with great details and dynamics. The design makes handling of percussions and bass notes easy in a clean and natural way. These 2-way, rear-ported stand-mount speakers, use a non-parallel tear drop design to minimize internal standing waves. Using many concepts derived from their bigger siblings, R 6 & R 3.
The R 1 Series delivers a precise soundstage with nerve and punch belying their actual size. These small wonders will leave the listener wanting for more. The Audiovector Freedom Grounding system eliminates distortion and improves overtones, lowers the noise floor and increases image depth and focus. Freedom Grounding is yet another step closer to perfection. Only on Arreté models.
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, broad, precise sound diffusion, which keeps unwanted diffraction distortion to an absolute minimum.
