I was browsing eBay's Boston Acoustics listings, as I tend to do, and saw these babies up for auction without any bids at $500. Thinking to myself "Yeah right, you'll never get 'em" I went ahead and just bid the minimum. Next thing I knew, I was the...

In 2001 I was looking for a pair of full-range speakers to complement my new 56" projection TV that could also double for serious music listening. I auditioned a great many brands with similar offerings in this price range (Polk, Infinity, Klipsch, AR)...

Compact floor space saving design.Clean tight bass.Smooth 'musical' warmth that does not sacrifice accuracy.Well-calibrated full range response.Outstanding choice for a balanced theatre & audio application

Powered subs can de-calibrate a projection TV if placed too close - place 20" away or more.Cloth cover vulnerable to cats with claws.Off axis response could be better

I have to agree that I have experienced some of the same things that other reviewers of the VR975's have written about concerning their sound. First of all I listen to all kinds of music. Mainly rock, fusion jazz, and some pop. At first I was a bit...

I've been looking to upgrade my speakers for months. I walked into Tweeter to look at the VR950s, which were on sale for $350/pr. I decided to listen to a pair of VR965s ($500.00 sale price) and took a look at the VR975s. What a HUGE difference. After...

Product Specifications

Sleek in appearance, the VR975 has, in mechanic's lingo, a lot going on under the hood. It is a three-way floor standing model. Inside is a powered 125-watt sub and a sufficient power subwoofer amplifier providing 125 watts RMS, with a side-firing 10-inch (250mm) Deep Channel Design (DCD) bass unit and a passive 12-inch (305mm) radiator for the deep, explosive bass effects. This will be great for those who can't bear to give up an inch of precious floor space to a separate subwoofer. Moving up the sonic scale, two 4-1/2-inch (115mm) midranges and a 1-inch (25mm) aluminum VR tweeter with AMD, acclaimed for its articulate and natural highs. The VR975 features a line-level subwoofer input for Dolby Digital, the exclusive BassTrac for distortion-free bass at any listening level, a heavily braced, resonance-free cabinet, and a sonically invisible cloth "sock grille".
