New Lower Price! $1,300 off down to $3,500.
The upgrade bug has struck. My Von Schweikert VR5- HSE are now available. These are the Hovland edition using Hovland wire. Walnut finish. I had Audio Physic Virgo’s for the longest time. I listened to a lot of speakers, costing a whole lot more, before I found something that sounded like the Virgo’s but much better. I have had these for 4 years and I am the second owner. The original owner, and only in the crazy world of high end audio could this happen, traded dental services with Albert himself.
The sound can be better described by writers much more eloquent than I.

I will sell them quickly or have Reflection Audio stuff them with Bybee devices for a couple more years.
When I was buying these I auditioned the Wilson Sophia's and the Ushers. I liked these a lot better. I also looked at the Von Schweikert VR4's. They sounded a tad better than the Virgo's but not enough to make a change.
I will not respond to “What is the lowest you will take for these”. Make an offer. Will put on a pallet to US and Canada. Buyer pays all fees. Have matching Verbatim speaker wire in 14 ft for $1500.
