Audiovector introduces QR 7 loudspeaker

Audiovector unveiled its new QR 7 loudspeaker at the recent High End Show in Munich. The QR 7 is the flagship model of the QR series and was developed, engineered and handmade in Denmark featuring two air-shifting 203mm drivers and a newly developed crossover that the company claims: “combine to create a hyper-dynamic, yet neutral-sounding speaker with a big, open soundstage”.

The QR7 is a full three-way system and has double Pure Piston bass units with sandwich membranes, a 152mm midrange and the Audiovector Air Motion Transformer tweeter. Its impedance load is 90.5dB, which Audiovector says means it’s easily driven – “a perfect match for both solid state and tube amplifiers…The combination of low-hysteresis voice coil technology, large powerful magnets, rigid turbulence-suppressing baskets and sandwich membranes made from two layers of aluminium, allows Audiovector to create a richer, clearer and more vibrant sound.”

The QR 7’s enclosure is made from high-density hardwood HDF aiming for: “superior strength, low resonance and elegant aesthetics”. The tweeter’s fascia plates are machined from a single piece of aerospace-grade aluminium; precision machined, glass blasted, brushed and then anodised in a tungsten titanium grey colour. The rose gold-plated dispersion mesh works as an S-Stop filter with a view to improving driver integration.

The QR7 is available to buy in the UK via Renaissance, measures 250 x 1,140 x 400mm (WxHxD), weighs 36.2kg and comes in White Silk, Dark Walnut and Black Piano. It costs £2,650 and you can find out more about it here.
