Most speaker manufacturers build an entry level speaker that resembles their flagship designs by name only. At Vapor we sought to design a speaker that would deliver experience of our higher end offerings, at a budget friendly price. After many iterations of the Breeze a balance was reached of some of the highest quality components, implemented in an acoustically damped and inert cabinet, with a crossover that blends it all together seamlessly.
One Breeze listener commented, “You should name this Taste of Cirrus!” And he’s right; the magic that the Cirrus offers is all there, just in a smaller dose. The speed, transparency, incredible resolution, tonal accuracy and refinement – for its price, the Breeze is possibly the best in the World at all of these. All RAAL tweeters share the same addictive characteristics, and after hearing the shimmer and shine of your recording through one, you will understand why they carry this reputation. The specially made Glass Fiber cone, Symmetric Motor Drive woofer is also a true gem; it is able to reproduce tonally accurate and rich bass down to near 40hz without the typical distortion of a 6 inch driver. The midrange is a beautiful blend of resolution and musicality.
Thanks to time alignment and well behaved drivers, the crossover is elegantly simple. Four total components and a 1st Order network result in perfect integration and a response that deviates a mere +/- 1.5db from 50hz to well beyond 30Khz. We are truly astounded by what was able to be accomplished with The Breeze, and believe it can compete with speakers many times it’s price.
The Breeze is offered in 3 standard finishes: matte finish cherry, matte finish maple, and piano gloss black.
As with all of our speakers we do offer custom veneering upon request and at extra charge.
Breeze Pricing starts at $1895 per pair
