QR 7 recommended by John Atkinson Although Danish company Audiovector was founded in 1979, I had very little experience of its loudspeakers, other than at audio shows (footnote 1), until I measured the Audiovector R 8 Arreté that Jim Austin reviewed in May 2021.

AUDIOVECTOR R 6 ARRETÉ HIFI HIGHLIGTHS 2021  December 2021   ”They represent, to my mind, all that I’m looking for in a loudspeaker.
