I bought these speakers from Audio Dimensions in Royal Oak, Michigan back in May. I used them for perhaps 30 hours in my main system but hey were intended for a second system. These speakers are amazing and have that Vandersteen sound in a small package. These can be placed right up against a wall if needed.
I have owned the Kef LS50's and Bowers &Wilkins PM1. These are better than the Kefs and almost exactly like the PM1's but for the port effect in the PM1. Jeff Dorgay came to the same conclusion in a review in TONE Audio.
VLR Wood Vandersteen Sound in a Small Pretty Package
Accurately reproducing the signal from the amplifier requires preserving all of the delicate time-domain relationships that comprise music. Because there isn't enough physical real estate to time align such a compact speaker, making a time- and phase-coherent speaker in such a small box requires the use of coaxially-mounted drivers like the woofer/tweeter used here. The result is all the coherence and dimensional purity one expects from a classic Vandersteen in a gorgeous and versatile little speaker.
