Up for sale are my Von Schweikert VR-4jr speakers in beautiful African Hazelwood. These speakers have never overdriven and have been cared for in a smoke free home. Asking $1,900.
They are in great-excellent condition, with only a few very small scratches that are barely noticeable. I'm the original owner and I am reluctantly selling them because my current listening room is too small for for the VR4-jrs, unfortunately.
Functionally and cosmetically they are excellent! These are truly wondeful speakers and sound amazing with a wide variety of music. I listen to everything from jazz, classical, indie, alternative, electronic, classic rock, female vocal, etc.
All of the awards and great reviews are true - these are outstanding in every parameter. I have paired them with tube amplifiers, sold state and digital amps and they always sound fantastic.
The VR-4jrs were designed expressly to be bi-wired, so I am including a pair of 8' Ridge Street Audio Poima!!! silver speaker cables with Eichmann Bayonet plugs on one end and spades on the other. These cables were designed to work specifically with the VR-4jrs, and I paid $2,000 for them new and they are included with the purchase.
I also upgraded the spikes on the woofer module with high quality Audio Points from Star Sound Technologies, because the originals did not hold up when adding sand to the bass modules. I paid $300 for the upgraded spikes!
To summarize, here's what's included with the VR-4jr speakers:
- Ridge Street Audio Poima!!! 8' silver bi-wire speaker cables (paid $2,000)
- Audio Points spikes for bass module ($300 value)
- Original spikes for the M/T module
- Original velvet bags for speaker modules
- All original speaker grills
- Data Link umbilical cords for connecting the bass cabinets to the top M/T cabinet.
- Original Manual
