Just my 2 cents:
Albert really created a gem here.
As an owner of this model myself, I feel there is no speaker available today I know of that will provide this level of performance anywhere near this $, new or used. If I could get a better used speaker for twice this $ I'd consider it, but I've not found it. Don't want to pay up for Wilsons, Avalons, newer VR-5s, etc.? Try these. I often listen to more expensive speakers, some up to $300k, and I never feel shortchanged in musical terms when I come home to mine. They simply deliver the music in an unedited, natural way. You give up some extension at the extremes compared to some, but the clarity, naturalness and focus from top to bottom is very satisfying. They are also a reasonable size and weight, and an easy load for an amp.
Of course, YMMV.

Thanks, and I agree with you whole heartedly.  I am moving up to the VSA VR-5 Anniversary MK II. They are brand new. Getting them directly from VSA.

I'm just about to the point of keeping them and have them replace my VSA VR-1's for surround sound.

Guys, this is a smokin' deal. I had excellent communication with Paul and was ready to pull the trigger and my surgeon called wanting to move my back surgery up one month. So my surgery is in a 9 days and the speakers have to wait. I spoke with Von Schweikert and they confirmed the build quality and sound. So don't hesitate because if I heal fast, these will be gone gone gone. :D

Thanks Ernie!  Best of luck with your back surgery.
