Vandersteen Model 1C in cherry wood endcaps. This speaker is simply outstanding an even greater value in the sub $500 used category. It is a floor stander with stands. The Vandersteen minimalist cabinet really makes these speakers image like monitors but put out solid low bass notes. Yes the bass is real and tuneful. They are efficient too at 90 db. You don't need expensive amplification to get a lot out of the the Vandies. I ran them with a 90 watt Rogue and currently 50 watt Krell all to good effect.
The 1C's are forgiving of poor recordings. This is one of my favorite traits of this speaker. I'm able to listen to all of my recording without cringing.
Bottom cherry end caps have light scuffing easily remedied. The sock is perfect. The black plastic cap that keeps the sand in the base stand has a crack but is totally stable and is seated very well.
