VMPS RM V60-Rosewood-Speakers $3500.00 or best offer (Silver Spring, Maryland) EBAY:https://www.ebay.com/itm/123099917482?ul_noapp=trueINFO: http://pointillistic.com/vmps-audio/RMV60.htm
VMPS Larger Subwoofer Speaker Package - (Columbia, MD) $525https://www.audiogon.com/listings/lis8i39e-vmps-rm-30-left-center-right-larger-subwoofer-speaker-package-full-range"Original owner - purchased in 2002/2003 timeframe. This sub functions perfectly and looks fantastic, as shown in the pictures. It has one scratch on the left side of the cabinet face, that is mostly covered by the grille. I think it would be very easy to fix this with a small amount of wood putty and a bit of black paint or a black Sharpie and would then not be noticeable. It was used relatively sparingly, in a dedicated home theater environment. It comes from a climate-controlled, smoke-free and pet-free home and was never handled outside of setup and removal from the home theater. The original grille is included and it is in excellent condition, too.Note: I did have VMPS RM30 speakers for sale as well, but they have been purchased."
Quote from: thepianoman04 on 10 Jun 2018, 02:01 amJust picked up 2 more Emotiva XPR-1 monoblocks to complete my setup. 4 XPR-1s into 2 VMPS Wide Range Ribbon speakers. 3,500 watts per channel! 2 XPA-1s at 1,000 watts per channel for the VMPS larger subs. Pictures attached. Do you need separate circuits for each channel or even each amp? I was wondering how you manage these power hungry amps. Thanks!Currently, I'm running all 4 XPR-1s off of a single 15 amp circuit. However, I'm having an electrician come out this week to install a single 20 amp outlet to plug my power conditioner into that can also handle a 20 amp load. Thought about following the recommended 20 amp per XPR-1 but decided that would be very costly to have 4 plugs installed and don't plan on running these at ridiculous levels to require it. Also, didn't want to bypass my power conditioner by plugging them into their own 20 amp circuit or have to buy another (or multiple) power conditioners.

Understood. Guess your conditioner must have a very large reserve. Or I would imagine they could trip the breaker if they are turned on simultaneously.
Well, we are about 2 weeks away from the start of our house being built (finally) so that will be keeping me busy for the remainder of the year without a doubt. But, I believe I've narrowed down my search in which models I'll be keeping an eye out for; RM1, RM2, RM30's for sure and ",maybe" the RM40's as the max size I'd want to go. The upstairs room is going to be right at 15.5' x 35' (+/-) and they would go on the long wall but not in corners based on how the room is laid out. I read where the 1's, 2's & 30's could go fairly close to the back wall which is good...I'm not a fan of speakers coming way out into a room. Now, if I could turn them where they were on the 15' wall, that might be another story but I wouldn't like the room done like that. I still have a pair of Klipsch Belle clone speakers I built that will be used primarily and ran off of a VTA ST-70 tube amp or Mac MC250 s/s amp.At any rate, that's the main models I'm keeping an eye on in my center of the US. Not that I expect to see them anytime soon, but you just never know....
pianoman,If convenient, please post a clearer image of the main speakers. Does that model have the Strathearn true ribbons? If yes, that is the most rare VMPS model extant, AFAIK. Tx. Properly driven and setup, the VMPS Wide Range Ribbon is likely the all time best performing VMPS, second being the RM50. The 50, as do all speakers with the 8" planar neo midrange, needs either an active or passive band pass filter for the 1kHz bump (multiple dB).
