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
The cables are not for sale.
The speakers are #235 and #236
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.
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.
system: Twin 5.5" cast frame full range drivers, featuring woven carbon
fiber diaphragms, edge-wound ribbon voice coils, oversized vented magnets, and
system: Titanium inverse dome with dioxide damping layer, phase control plate,
transmission line loading, Ferrofluid cooling, and enormous 1200 gram magnetic
retrieval system: Rear firing mid/treble driver (same as front tweeter) with
Ambience Derivation Circuit and Spatial Dimensional control for effects level.
response: 16 Hz (with optional filter) to 35kHz , +/-3dB. (Midrange +/-ldB).
Separate pairs of metal posts for woofer, midrange-treble inputs for biamping
96dB @ 1W1M anechoic, 100dB measured in room with boundary boost.
Four ohms nominal rating. High current tube or solid state amps recommended.
recommendations: Five watts minimum- 1,000 watts maximum peak input.
design: Two piece stacking type, with wall thickness varying from 1" to
3" using constrained layer damping techniques and cross bracing. Tilting
MIT module, Time aligned drivers.
500 lbs ea.
65" H x 18" W x 28" D.
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.

The Speakers are super heavy. They are 500Lb each. To carry
or even to load on the track- need at least 3 people.
Local pick up. The speakers are in Tehachapi,
California ( 100 miles from Downtown Los Angeles). I could help deliver within
200 Miles from Great Los Angeles area.
