For the first time ever, own a $15,000 speaker for only $3,750. That's right, Von Schweikert Audio is offering this revolutionary speaker design Factory Direct; at a quarter the price it would cost using the traditional sales model. By eliminating the mark-up, high-priced veneers and paint finishes, we're able to deliver more sound quality for your audio budget than the competition.
The genesis of the VR-33 started when we perceived an ever increasing-disconnect between the direction that high-end audio manufacturers were taking with unlimited cost productions and the requirement from our customers to get more value for their purchases. Given Von Schweikert Audio's 1976 success with the cloth-wrapped “super speaker” we decided to bring the value back to high end audio.
Many companies have speakers costing less than $5,000 that offer wood veneer finishes and are sold through dealers across the U.S. These speakers look great but their beauty is superficial. In order to sell through dealers while also offering very expensive-looking cosmetics, these products must be mass-produced overseas with the lowest cost components and quality control. These are not truly "high end" designs, they are marketing vehicles built by corporations who care more for profit margins than sound quality.
As with the rest of our products, we at VSA insist the VR-33 must be built exclusively here in the U.S., with the finest European parts available. In fact, if you are familiar with some of the products offered by our competitors, you may notice many, far more expensive speakers using drivers built by our same vendors! In some cases, our drivers are identical to drivers in speakers costing up to $147,000/pr. How's that for value?
In addition, by opting for cloth-wrap as opposed to high-priced veneers and exotic paint finishes, we are able to ensure that as much of your dollar goes to the sound of your sound system as possible. The end result is a speaker that delivers the highest ratio of sound versus cost on the market. If you read our reviews and customer testimonials, you'll find that we are not exaggerating!
Full range sound is assured by our Hi-Speed passive 10" rear-firing subwoofer, with bass that is powerful without sacrificing speed or clarity. Since the bass power is user adjustable, you can tune this design to your room or taste! Easy to place, the VR-33 are designed to sit close to a rear wall to save space, but more importantly, to provide the same room-to-room balance so that every audiophile will be able to enjoy the finest sound quality available. The VR-33 was designed to work in any type of room.
Built with premium European components and handcrafted in California, the VR-33 has no peers in the current market. But don't just take our word for it.
"I have heard nothing over the last 30 years that can touch the VR-33 in terms of imaging, soundstaging and bass performance for anywhere NEAR their Price."
