CONCEPTS AND TECHNOLOGIES:
The new Audiovector Cross Woven Sandwich Carbon Driver is made to improve our already class leading drivers: Much lighter, stiffer and more sound dead membranes to produce a faster and more uncolored sound. Our new membranes are made from precision woven aramid fibers, sandwiched with artificial wood resin.
A delicate balance combining our award-winning internal isobaric compound bass system with a hand built 4-inch rear firing bass/midrange driver. Seamlessly integrated with the new Audiovector quasi rear firing 3rd generation Air Motion Transformer tweeter.
Cryogenically treated 7-nines pure copper asymmetrical wiring and Audiovector Nanopore damping material gives a smooth and natural musical reproduction.
The FreedomŽ earth grounding system, engineered by Audiovector, is a complex distortion eliminating construction. The effect of FreedomŽ brings about improved overtones, lower noise floor, increased image depth with tighter focus and wider soundstage. You will also find that pace, dynamics and musical expression have surpassed existing standards.
Freedom grounding cable sold separately for $3,500.
