That $1500 is Canadian funds and was when the $ was about .65¢ :( I've been using these VR965 for over 5 years now, and they still sound the same (I think) as they did the first day! I was impressed by the great 'hidden' subs design. They have...

very good value! Would probably buy again...after shopping of course! They are good for all music genres...but only excel 80% of the time. (I think that is very good!)

I purchased the 965's about 2 years ago and recently "upgraded" to a pair of Triangle Antals. I still use the 965's for home theatre and am pleased with them for that purpose. The 8" integrated subs are the best feature. Bass is tight, articulate &...

I have had these speakers for a while now. I work in the electronics retail business so I get to constantly listen to all the new stuff that comes out, and with the great discounts I am always ready to upgrade. The thing is that I haven't found...

Great all around sound. Small footprint. Built in subs make a separate sub an option, not a necessity

An outlet for every speaker. Sock collects dust

I have had the 965s for about 2 months now. So far I have been very impressed. I initially auditioned about 8 to 10 different speaker models. I listened to Polk, Klipsch, Mirage, Paradigm, Phase Tech, Vandersteen, B&W, and Energy. Out of all of these...

Great tight bass. Great detail. Built-in subs are awesome. Nice clean slender look. Wife approved. Very easy to drive. Great value

In case you want a casual listener's opinion for a change, here it is. I have been looking to build a surround sound environment in my living room, but I had a very small budget. The answer was the VR-965. Not only were they the best sounding speakers...

Built-in powered subwoofers*Great sound across the spectrum*Design

The special cloth grill attracts a lot of dust

Product Specifications

Integrating the subwoofer within the floor standing VR965, accomplishes two feats. One, it saves space over using a separate sub. And two, it created a system that lets you better control the overall sound. The VR965 features a side-firing 8-inch (200mm) DCD bass unit, a 4-1 / 2-inch (115mm) copolymer midrange driver and the much touted and highly accurate 1-inch (25mm) VR aluminum tweeter with AMD. The VR965 features a line-level subwoofer input for use with Dolby Digital systems, and the exclusive BassTrac for distortion-free bass at any listening level. Inside is a crossover with audiophile-grade bypass capacitors for a clean, articulate signal. The subwoofer amplifier provides up to 80 watts RMS of power. Cabinets are made of MDF, for near-zero resonance. Outside, a sleek cloth sock grille conveys the speakers' sound, as well as a sense of style.
