For sale 1 pair Von Schweikert Audio VR-1 monitor speakers in Maple. In addition to the speakers are the matching VR Stand-1.
No major scratches, or dings, but the satin poly finish isn't quite as lustrous as new. I am very conservative with my ratings and given the age (2006) and modifications a 7 extremely fair (please see the pictures). This little speaker is well reviewed, and set a significant precedent for the $1k monitor category, when VSA introduced the VR-1. They have been driven by Naim, Creek and Musical Fidelity intergrated amps for the past 3 years. Original grills, boxes, and packaging are included. Even the original velvet VS bags.
The original owner made the following upgrades to the speakersincluding: Crossover capacitors upgraded to Sonicap Gen.1's, including the addition of Sonicap bypass caps. Crossover resistors upgraded to Mills.NoRez cabinet damping used throughout.VHAudio silver in teflon wiring to tweeter. VHAudio 14ga copper in teflon wiring to woofer.Overall, the crossover upgrades afford much greater transparency and detail than the stock crossover.
The extra cost for these parts (roughly $175) is reflected in asking price. Fortunately, for my asking price, I don't think you're going to find a more coherent monitor, unless you DIY. Asking price does not include shipping - I'll leave the choice of shipping to the buyer. If using Paypal (recommended), please add 3%. Otherwise, MO/cashiers cheque will be acceptable payment. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.
