Von Schweikert Audio VR-8 best speakers out there [Expired]


no longer for sale

I  sell my bellowed VR-8. I have too many speakers waiting to be installed. 

The speakers are one of the best ever produced and will be produced. Only few lucky had a chance to listen these at home set up and all who had- never forget the experience. 


This pair was originally purchased by one of Vegas casino owner- never abused, and was taken good care of. Sonically speakers are in perfect operational condition.

If you are familiar with Von Schweikert special shrink type lacquer- You know how lacquer finish look. The grills are all good - no tears or other damage. All terminals on the back are good, all drivers are good too. I have 2 damping devise on top of each speaker that I can throw in if needed ($800 value).

The cables are not for sale.


The speakers are #235 and #236

 VR-8 Specifications

·         Crossover frequencies: Virtual one-way design, using full range drivers as "main" system, augmented at sub-bass and treble frequencies. The frequencies chosen, 100Hz and 3.5kHz, are well outside the ear’s most sensitive range, allowing full midrange coherency without driver overlap.

·         Bass system: 13" sub-bass and 10" midbass high efficiency, cast frame drivers using extremely stiff and lightweight paper cones, large 4" voice coils, and huge 6,000 gram magnets. Separate aperiodically vented enclosures are tuned to a sixth order Chebychev alignment which features transient response speed enhancement due to magnetic overdamping and 100% stuffing fill.

The speakers were on top of the world for 2 years. Not many people could afford it.

Now when unjustified prices for audio is out of control- you have to pay six figures to get something close, but not better. You can pay $500,000 for Sessarro Acoustic and have bunch of drunken fiddlers at your place, or for fraction of this price have VR-8 along with London Symphony Orchestra visiting you for Christmas.
