Up for sale are my Von Schweikert Audio VR-5 HSE (Hovland Special Edition)
speakers. They were purchased in 2001 and I am the original owner. The retail price at the time was $12,000.00.
Speakers were always well cared for in a smoke free and humidity controlled room. I would conservatively rate them 8 out of 10 due to their age. The cabinets are in excellent condition with no scratches, dents or scuffs. A small part of the grill cloth is partially separated from the frame.(See pic)
I don’t have original shipping boxes so looking for local pickup or will drive 2 hours to deliver or meet in New York City Area.Looking for quick sale 3,999.00
