Von Schweikert's VR-5 Anniversary is a refined, large cabinet, full-range loudspeaker from a company designing some of the best sounding speakers you can buy. Albert Von Schweikart spent decades listening to and testing drivers and components from all over the world to produce some of the most award winning speakers design available today. The VR-5 Anniversary is the culmination of years of research...and its clear when you listen to them.
Just the Revelator silk-ring dome from Scanspeak is considered one of the finest tweeters in any loudspeaker. Coupled with an advanced crossover and precision drivers matched to the transmission line cabinet design, Albert spared no expense to produce a masterpiece.
The one original owner had ordered these from the factory as MKII's and had them internally wired with JPS Labs wiring. He also had a pair of custom length, JPS labs Iluminata jumper cables built for these. They are some of the quietest and cleanest sounding jumpers you can buy for $6500. We are including these with the speakers.
