Audiovector specializes in designing classic speakers. In their 34th year, they announce that they are ready to "enter into the digital era" by adding their first active model.

Ole Kliforth, CEO and Chief Engineer of Audiovector, says, "There is no reason for us to use new technologies if they don't sound better or at least as good as existing ones. Class-D amplifier technology simply hasn't been ready for true high-end audio until now... After years of searching we ran into the Swedish audio company Opalum... When combining their advanced technologies with Audiovector's hi-end speakers we managed to get timing, tonal transparency and imaging more precise than with any other digital solution we've listened to. What struck us the most, though, was that Opalum PulseTM amplifiers never lose that rare sense of life in the music."

Founded in 2007, Opalum has taken a radical approach to Audio architecture design by combining cutting-edge research from fields such as Digital Signal Processing, Mechatronics and human hearing. Par Gunnars Risberg, CEO of Opalum Technologies, states, "It's exciting to see the dramatic results of combining our relatively new digital technologies with Audiovector's extensive experience with acoustical design. Finally, a high-end, free standing speaker capable of showcasing the full potential of our electronics - I'm thrilled!"

The speakers with wireless operation from portable sources and "green" power consumption will be unveiled at HIGH END 2013, May 9-12 in Munich.
