Audiovector QR 7 loudspeaker
We are delighted to share the words of Editor in Chief of Soundstage! Jeff Fritz and journalist Doug Schneider – being awarded Best of High End Munich 2022 means a lot to everyone at Audiovector!
At High End 2022, Jeff was really taken by the floorstanding QR 7 loudspeaker, which is priced at €5700 per pair and is made by Audiovector, a Copenhagen-based speaker company that’s been in business since 1979. Like he was with the Apex Stereo, Jeff was impressed by how much stuff for the money you get with the QR 7. In this instance, for a lot less money. When I went to see what he was raving about, I couldn’t disagree.
QR 7 was very popular in Munich!
The QR 7, which tops the Danish company’s QR series, stands 45″ tall and weighs 80 pounds. It’s a three-way design with Audiovector-designed drivers: two 8″ Pure Piston Technology woofers, one 6″ Pure Piston midrange, and one Gold Leaf AMT-type tweeter. The available finishes are called White Silk, Black Piano, and—as shown in Munich—Dark Walnut. The build quality looked good when we closely examined one of the QR 7s on display, but it was the sound of the pair that sealed the deal. As Jeff declared in his coverage: “After I heard a pair, I honestly couldn’t believe the price.”
