AUDIOVECTOR R 3 ARRETÉ
THE ABSOLUTE SOUND, May 2020
By Andrew Quint
”Timbral accuracy is unassailable. Make a playlist of the jazz and pop voices you like best — that’s what I did — and you’ll hear them represented with complete faithfulness to the recorded essence of their distinctive vocal instruments...”
“...and even with the $15k S-Sub and sophisticated equalization, I still preferred listening to the Audiovectors on their own with 95% of the music I cared about...”
“Audiovector’s AMT driver, and all that derives from its implementation in the R3 Arreté, make this product one that deserves a very close listen. For many, so will the modest footprint of this supremely musical loudspeaker and the visual impression that it makes — or doesn’t make. If you end up owning them, you will indeed be a consumer of high-performance audio at the most exalted level...”
"The Audiovectors readily differentiate Stradivarius from Guarneri, Telecaster from Stratocaster, trumpet from cornet from flugelhorn."
