Hello to you fellow VR-2 owners. My story goes way back to 2004 when I lived in San Diego and had a pair of modified Rouna speakers.
They were imported from Sweden and were made out of concrete.
They looked like the air intake on a ship only not round but oblong and just wide enough to hold a couple of 6.5 inch woofers and in between there was a 1 inch soft dome tweeter.
Anyway a friend convinced me to try out a pair of VR-2's to see what I thought.
Well it was somewhat close however the VR-2's were faster and had a little bit better bass to boot.
And the big plus was that they had a very nice wife approval rating.
So I purchased them and have not looked back in all these years.
I believe that when one finds something that works then there's no point in trying to fix it for the sake of fixing something that is not broke in the first place.
Anyway I am sure you get my drift, right?
I did spend some time with Albert at the recent "Ca Audio Show" here in the SF Bay Area and touched on what I might do to modify/improve the sound of my VR-2 speakers.
Well he thought for a second and launched into all sorts of cross-over changes and bracing and driver changes.
Way to much time and money to mess around with doing all that he suggested.
He then said that if I wanted to change up in speaker performance then the the upgrade speakers to purchase are his "Endeavor E-3 MK 11" retailing at $8,000 per pair in cherry Veneer and $10,500 in high gloss black or silver.
It features a dual-ring silk dome tweeter.
Kevlar midrange and dual 7 inch aluminum woofers.
Its a 3-way floor standing unit.
The size is 44"x9"x15"
Weight is 82 lbs per side.
4ohms and a sensitivity of 89dB
Freq Resp 28Hz - 22KHz
I did see them however they were not connected at the show so do not know how they sounded other then what Albert told me.
The local dealer lives in Santa Cruz and is about a 90 minute drive depending on traffic from my residence.
Everything goes up from there in the VSA speaker line.
So for me at this moment the VR-2's are where its at for me, at least until I hear the Endeavor E-3 MK 11's
