AUDIOVECTOR QR 5
HIFI MEDIA, June 2019
"The largest QR series model justifies its flagship position"
"Just like other loudspeakers coming from this Danish company, QR offers state-of-the-art technology in one perfectly finished and compact high-end package."
"We started the listening session with Bach oboe concertos (Naxos). Audiovector’s own version of Heil's ribbon sounds extremely fast and detailed, and overall very pleasant. This is how we can describe the sound of QR 5 – nuanced, crystal-clear and dynamic. It is astounding how a complete Cologne chamber orchestra can fit into one relatively compact box, without pushing or shoving. What I mean is that the speaker defines and differentiates individual instruments effortlessly and with ease, without the impression that the ensemble is breaking its back (both in terms of performance and sound), enabling the genius of Bach to reach the listener. Moreover, the quantity of detail delivered for the price of the loudspeaker is remarkable, in particular the excellent tweeter and perhaps even better mid-range. The majority of what is delivered is covered by these two drivers, which additionally contribute to the already magnificent performance of this Baroque concerto."
"Conclusion: The level of sound detail and precision is perfectly balanced with the loudspeaker’s supple, gentle and delicate sound."
