I have owned theses speakers for about 2 years now. I bought them right as they went out of production, if you can find a gently used pair they are well worth the money. I have them bi-amped with a 7 channel receiver. These speakers are very efficient...

I had a pair of VR3's about 2 years ago, and didn't think they sounded all that great, to be honest. I had a pair of BA A150's back in about 1982, and they were Magnificent, to say the least. I use to let people listen to my Stereo back then with the...

Exellent soundstage and detail. Plenty of bass.(real not 60-100hz)

It all depends on your room. I had $5000 of various speakers I tried out (these were my second choice). I went for a very warm speaker because of my bright room. In my previous warm room I would have bought these. Looking for a $1000-1800 speakers

Very large range without any obvious colorationVery sensitive--you don't need a brute of an amp to drive these speakersVery convincing soundstageWould probably make great home theater speakers

Don't necessarily a true weakness, but I having only heard these through a very good amp (NAD C320 BEE). I can't attest to how these would sound if driven by a lesser amp

Product Specifications

The VR3 compact floorstanding speakers and the VRB compact bookshelf speaker system deliver the kind of powerful, impressive sound usually associated only with much larger, more expensive speakers. The high-performance VRC is a timbre-matched center channel speaker that is a perfect compliment to any of the VR floorstanding models in your home theater system. The VRCâs three-way design delivers extremely wide horizontal dispersion and exceptionally high power handling capability. The VR3 features dual woofers for deep, authoritative bass response and low distortion. The placement of the woofers on the baffle has been chosen with extreme care and precision, and it provides two very specific, clearly audible benefits: First, by separating the woofers by a precisely calculated distance, the internal "pipe organ" standing waveâcommon to all columnar-type enclosures that have their bass drivers closely grouped at one end of the cabinetâis reduced to the point of audible insignificance. The result is less midrange coloration and a commensurate increase in clarity and detail. The second benefit is smoother, more uniform upper bass/lower midrange frequency response in a real listening room. The dimensional relationship of the woofer to the nearby room boundaries (the walls and floor) in any speaker results in a reinforcement or cancellation of upper bass/lower midrange frequencies corresponding to the woofer-to-boundary distances. By placing the cabinetâs two woofers at optimally chosen different locations, these dimensions are "averaged" over a wider variety of distances, thereby reducing the influence of any single woofer-to-boundary dimension. The result is much smoother, more accurate in-room frequency response, with far less of the typical "peak and dip" characteristic found in conventional designs. The VR3 model utilizes a newly-developed 4-1⁄2-inch (115mm) midrange driver with a large 1-1⁄2-inch voice coil for superb driver cont
