BUILT TO LAST
From the start, it has been Audiovector’s wish that its products could last a lifetime. Audiovector has been manufacturing speakers since 1979, and it is a fact that more than 85% of all speakers ever made, are still in service. So when people ask “How long will an Audiovector last”, the answer is: “We don’t know yet!”
BUILT TO PERFORM
Of course, there is no real advantage of the fine durability, if the product does not perform. Audiovector is and has always been, about premium performance.
There is a direct connection between performance and hand built products. A lot of the quality lies, once all the engineering aspects have been addressed to perfection, in the way a product is built. Audiovector’s exacting standards include: Precision tightened nut and bolts, following a carefully researched definition of the torque with which each bolt or nut should be tightened. In combination with Audiovector’s NES (No Energy Storage, read more) principle of coupling drivers to the cabinets, the clarity and lack of distortion is stunning.
Choosing the best components is vital for sound quality. 1 % tolerance-capacitors, Scan –Speak built drivers, and purpose made bolts made from carbon steel, are just a few of the examples.
IN-HOUSE DESIGNED DRIVERS
Most Audiovector drivers have been designed by ourselves. Not just the 3 point fixed chassis, but the membranes, the voice coils (titanium in most cases, of course) magnets structures, everything is defined in Copenhagen and hand built in Denmark to our specification at Scan-Speak – the world’s most famous factory for high – end drivers.
Many years ago, Audiovector decided to make its speakers upgradable. As the customers keep their speakers almost forever, the possibility to upgrade to the highest level for a given model, often comes in handy. The general advantage of an upgrade is that you save 40% compared to trading your speakers in for new Audiovectors and you help save the environment.
