What happened to V1 and V2? In fact, where does the HT1-3 name come from? Will there be a name, like Veracity, associated with the V3 model? The V3 logo looks good. New models are always exciting.
V1 and V2 do not exist (yet). V3 is a 3-way. The Veracity HT1 is a 2-way with a single midwoofer. The HT2 is a two-way with two midwoofers. The HT3 is a 3-way. I am thinking that if and when there are follow-ups to the V3, all will be part of the "V-series" models. The "V" stands simultaneously for "Visaton" (drivers) and for "value".
V3?? Is this going to be a "cost-no-object" design?
On the contrary. It will be a "cost is a primary object" model. However, it will not be compromised in terms of performance in any significant degree.
I never like to talk about any new model until it exists. That is why I didn't mention the V3 project previously. We just finished putting them through some listening tests with some highly critical listeners and I feel confident the model is ready to be announced (although some details are yet to be worked out).
I hope to be able to take some time this evening to put together a write-up on them.
