The R 1 Series delivers a speedy response with great details and dynamics. The design makes handling of percussions and bass notes easy in a clean and natural way. These 2-way, rear-ported stand-mount speakers, use a non-parallel tear drop design to minimize internal standing waves. Using many concepts derived from their bigger siblings, R 6 & R 3.

The R 1 Series delivers a precise soundstage with nerve and punch belying their actual size. These small wonders will leave the listener wanting for more. The Audiovector Freedom Grounding® system eliminates distortion and improves overtones, lowers the noise floor and increases image depth and focus. Freedom Grounding® is yet another step closer to perfection. Only on Arreté models.

In order to take full advantage of the Audiovector tweeters and the hand assembled mid/bass drivers made with Aramid Composite membranes, the front baffle is narrow. The result is a smooth, broad, precise sound diffusion, which keeps unwanted diffraction distortion to an absolute minimum.
