The VR-1 Reference Studio Monitor System is truly a breakthrough in performance versus price. This Reference-Grade mini-monitor utilizes new technology to provide breathtaking clarity and an incredible three-dimensional sound stage. Our insistence on using only the finest hand-made parts allows us to offer a no-compromise design standard. The VR-1 has deep bass, high power handling, and lush high frequency response, making it ideal for recording studio use and critical listenership. Frequency response graphs, specifically pair-matched to each right and left serial number are included, demonstrating our unmatched commitment to quality control, and providing an irrefutable scientific endorsement of engineering and performance. Magnetically shielded, faithfully musical, and beguilingly muscular, the affordable VR-1 provides studio-grade quality for stereo and multi-channel theater applications.
Bass power and midrange clarity are spectacular, far exceeding that of ordinary small speaker systems. A special composite of mica-impregnated cellulose acetate pulp with polymer resin damping yields a stiff and light woofer/midrange cone, enabling exceptionally fast transient response. Our new tweeter design reproduces clean high frequencies at high volume levels, a result of an unusual mechanical construction of the tweeter motor - and a tweeter dome constructed from three layers of composite materials. Not only does this new tweeter sound extremely clean, it is also unusually lush, with a smoothness simply not found in common dome tweeters. If you like ribbon or electrostatic drivers, you will love the VR-1.
The Von Schweikert Global Axis Integration Network circuit enables complete phase integration between these outstanding drivers, allowing a natural and coherent blend of midrange frequencies from the woofer and tweeter. Hand built crossovers utilize only the finest parts available, ensuring the highest level of transparency and image focus The VR-1 brings a rare - and remarkably affordable - character to the subtle nuance of sound performance.
Finished in a dramatic piano-black polyester, the Stand-1 highlights the elegance of the VR-1, as well as optimizing it's sonic performance. The stylish design effortlessly integrates with any type of décor.
Studio Reference Monitors require a heavy stand to stabilize the bass response and accurately broadcast image focus. A properly weighted, high quality stand is critical for articulate sound! Our dedicated Stand-1 places the tweeter at the correct listening height, and is the precise weight necessary to properly dampen the speaker and tighten the bass. This gorgeous decorator stand belies its sophisticated engineering, allowing the listener to enjoy the full sonic potential of the VR-1, and its huge holographic sound stage. For thick carpets, we have included sharp pyramid cones, which thread into the base of the Stand-1.
