This review says it all, these are the best speakers I have owned or heard.
This pair of Vapor Audio Cirrus has the following upgrades over the stock version
RAAL Tweeter Amorphous Core
Crossover Capacitors - V-Cap OIMP
Bypass Capacitor on Tweeter - V-Cap TFTF
Bypass Capacitor on Woofer - V-Cap CUFT
Duelund Graphite Resistors
Internal Wiring for Tweeter - Mundorf 99/1 Silver/Gold
Eichmann Low Mass Binding Posts
Also included is a pair of Atacama HMS-1 500mm stands. These stands are directly attached to matching Cirrus toplate's so the stand and speaker bolt together. Each Atacama stand uses 4 ViaBlue cones instead of the standard spikes. The Atacama stands and Viablue spikes cost over $500 to purchase.
The Cirrus has a cabinet made of CNC cut and stacked birch ply layers. The finish is raw ply with sateen gloss. The cabinets are exposed to hot and cold temp over a dozen times, to keep the wood expanding and contracting so that final product is very stable. This treatment process adds 2 months onto the already substantial build time. If you were ordering your own pair you can expect to wait almost 6 months due to current high demand for Vapor Audio products.
The drivers used in the Cirrus are the best available. The Audio Technology drivers are $350 each, and the RAAL 70-20XR is only available to OEM's, but regularly goes for $1200 a pair when appearing on auctions. So when you combine $2000 worth of drivers, all the expensive crossover components, and the insane cabinet construction, there is a lot of value here.
Shipping in Australia is $100, international rates will vary depending on location.
(Note : Two of the pictures have an oil finished Cirrus and the sateen gloss finshed Cirrus. The pair featured in this auction is the one on the right hand side, Sateen Gloss)
RATING : I sell all my stuff on ebay Australia usually, so PM me for ebay ID details and see my 100% positive feedback rating.
