Destined to be an instant classic, the Avior is the epitome of high performance and visual elegance in a loudspeaker which is moderate in size, yet delivers true, full range sound.
Immediately apparent is the potent combination of our newest generation of custom, carbon fiber sandwich composite cone drivers designed and developed from the ground up by Rockport Technologies. Both the bass drivers and midrange driver utilize a revolutionary new carbon fiber fabric in their cone construction that further increases the stiffness/weight ratio of the cones, ensuring pure pistonic behavior throughout their entire operating range. Both drivers also feature newly designed cone profiles as well as state of the art, ultra-linear, high-power motor systems. The result is vanishingly low distortion, incomparable resolution, and enormous dynamic range. Scanspeak’s spectacular new beryllium dome tweeter provides the Avior’s astonishingly expressive and airy top end, perfectly complementing its extraordinarily textured, ultra high resolution midband and authoritative, yet nimble lower registers.
The Avior’s triple laminated, constrained mode damped enclosure boasts a solid 6 inch thick front baffle and variable section thickness, gracefully curved side panels and crowned top surface. Together, these not only create an elegant form, but also endow the enclosure with immense stiffness and minimum resonant signature. The enclosure’s large sweeping chamfers and ever changing baffle dimensions virtually eliminate diffraction anomalies, while the Avior’s visually stunning, raked back form and high gloss piano black finish are the ideal complement to its awesome sonic accomplishment.
