It was suggested that it would be nice to have a "sticky" with VMPS owners who would like to share their systems with potential owners.

This sticky is for that purpose.  Any Owner who is interested in doing so (I have met a lot of great people this way) can post their information below.

I know many of my clients have numerous times welcomed others into their homes for which I am grateful.

Please list your:

Speaker Models and finish
Upgrades
System and type (2 channel audio/HT)

I would suggest not listing phone numbers or street addresses and exchanging this info via private e-mail or PM.

And let me, Brian and all the other dealers thank you, in advance, for sharing.

You can post your information as a "reply" to this sticky

My name is Kevin, and I have RM40s w/ TRT cap upgrade and Cherry Flambe' finish.  My 2-channel system is integrated in a Home Theater, but only my mains are VMPS.  I live in Tampa, and I'm almost always available.

I live in Tallahassee, FL and will happily allow others to audition if they are interested.

I have VMPS RM 1's in a pure 2 channel setup. They have the older spiral tweeters and the only upgrade after the factory is the Elmer's glue tweak.

Associated equipment:
Cambridge Audio 640C CD Player
Bolder Cable modified Smart DI\O
Sonic Frontiers Line 1 Preamp
Anthem MCA 5 S2 amp, used to biamp the speakers

Cables are a mix of Bolder, BetterCables Tara Labs and Kimber.

I live north of Albany, NY. Although my system isn't running
quite a good as I think it should (especially due to the CD
player), I am quite happy with the sound.

If you're anywhere near Wilmington N.C feel free to contact me for a listen.

Speakers;
A pair of RM40's and one LRC with all the upgrades. Cabinets, silver wire, TRTs and tweeters. Delivered December of 04.

Hardware;
Sunfire Theater Grand III processor, Cinima Grand Signature amp (400x5), Integra DPS 10.5 universal disc player, DHlabs Q10 cables and Matrix interconnects.

Subs;
I shake the foundation of my house with one Sunfire Signature EQ true subwoofer and one (non EQ) Sunfire Signature true subwoofer.

All components powered through a Panamax AC conditioner.

Can easily power 40s without center, surrounds or subs for pure RM40 audition.

There are certainly better systems out there than mine. But I can say with confidence that I personally have never heard anything like this since I've recieved my 40s. I'm not an audiophile, I just know what sounds good. And brother... this sounds good.
