"With their ease of placement and amplifier-friendly sensitivity and loading, the VR-22s are the nearest one can get to fuss-free speakers in this hobby. After months of listening, I could live with these in my reference rig for the long-haul. At $3k delivered this is proof that you don’t have to spend a small fortune to taste the high end."
"You owe it to yourself to hear this remarkable new entrant from the VSA lineup. It has impressed me well beyond anything I would have expected, and I've been at this for over four decades! I'm sure you will have a similar reaction once you hear them. Most enthusiastically and musically recommended!"
"Von Schweikert Audio has delivered to the market a speaker system with the highest ratio of sound versus cost I have ever experienced. The Von Schweikert Audio VR-22 is greater than the sum of the individual parts and has resulted in an outstanding balanced product which truly defines “Extreme Value” in my book. Congratulations to Von Schweikert Audio!"
"If you have gotten the impression that the Vortex VR-33 from Von Schweikert Audio is an exciting, bold, innovative, and groundbreaking new product, you'd be correct. These speakers will drastically reset the bar in the price to performance category for entry-level high-performance loudspeakers. There is simply nothing else like them at anywhere near their $3750 price point in today's market!"
"I cannot think of a single speaker that does everything as well at anywhere near the amazing $3,750 price per pair. I can say from my soul that the Von Schweikert VR-33 is one of the best speaker values I have seen and heard in many years...The Von Schweikert VR-33 easily wins our Maximum Mojo Award."

"Albert Von Schweikert, through the creation of the VR-35, has given us a design that can be tucked out of the way due to size, shape and placement considerations, does not cost a small fortune and sounds like loudspeakers costing considerably more. Not wanting to part with them I purchased the review pair. Highly recommended!"
"Von Schweikert Audio’s VR-35 Export Deluxe is a remarkable loudspeaker. It performed wonderfully, handling all musical genres with aplomb. The VR-35 definitely has the DNA and house sound of the company’s other models: carefully executed engineering resulting in little sonic compromise, to achieve a sound worthy of any audiophile’s expectations."
"When I checked out Von Schweikert’s website, I discovered that with one exception, every other Von Schweikert speaker is ‘conventionally’ designed, by which I mean all their drivers are mounted on the front baf- fle and the cabinets are not swathed in cloth but have the usual high-quality wood veneer finishes found on most other speakers..."
"To tell the truth, I felt as though the speakers schooled me, and I’d had to adapt my default methods of setup and even improve my system (with addition of the Audience aR6-TSS line conditioner) in order to take advantage of all the VR-44 Aktive speakers had to offer. I ended up loving them and they are now my new reference, lending to my listening a bold, expressive beauty and the capacity for delicate shadings of nuance, bringing together a complex acoustic design with an aura of magic that I will not give up."
"The VR-100XS was magnificent, and one of the show’s musical highlights. Despite being in a standard-sized hotel room, the VR-100XS had extremely smooth and extended bass, with none of the typical bottom-end colorations. The Von Schweikert VR-100XS (Constellation electronics) is my Best Sound (cost no object)."
"Pitches were clearly articulated, and the bottom end didn’t congeal into a roar as it does in many systems. It was particularly remarkable considering that the VR-100XS reproduced the instrument with a full measure of weight but without a trace of thickness or room-induced coloration. Overall, the VR-100XS is a loudspeaker of the first rank, but its ability to deliver a full measure of bass weight without bloat or loss of articulation in a small room is unique in my experience."
"In terms of precision and soundstaging, it is the finest speaker I’ve ever reviewed. It embodies a unique approach to cabinet design, and comes from the workshop of a man who has spent years fine-tuning his craft. The experience Albert Von Schweikert has gained building speakers has paid off in spades in the 1 -- you can pay a lot more without getting nearly as much. If you’re in the market for a long-term reference monitor, you’ll be making a mistake if you don’t hear these speakers. I don’t look forward to sending them back."

"This is good as it gets here in my home and reference system. I can't possibly predict the kind of results you might achieve within any room larger than mine should be far easier to set up. So now I have provided proof of my audio analogy and banished unbelievers. Undoubtedly Albert Von Schweikert marches to the sound of a different drummer."
UniField Two MkII
"The UniField Two Mk2 offers impressive performance for a small box speaker. As such, it competes effectively with British stand-mounts from Spendor and Harbeth. Think greater rhythmic precision and bass heft. Its coaxial technology bestows upon it exceptional image focus. In fact, if you like mini-monitor soundstaging, you’ll love the UniField Two. Optimally set up, it will reward you with a steady stream of musical delight. And that’s what it’s all about."
UniField Three MkII
"The UniField Three is, by design, a voice of its own that is robust but meltingly beautiful, superbly focused but never edgy, supremely quick but never aggressive, highly detailed but highly forgiving—it is a constant pleasure to listen to and never less than musically convincing."
UniField 2 MkII
"They proved to perform like a large floorstanding tower, but a tower with exceptional clarity, detail, speed and transparency. Every single recording I played gave me goose bumps."
"The quest for the great speaker under $1000 has become somewhat akin to the search for the Holy Grail. The original Vortex Screens may be as impossible to find, but just as rewarding. Highly recommended."
"These speakers are an extraordinary gift to audiophiles who have real world budgetary constraints. Imagine the joy of knowing that you only spent $3000 and got a pair of loudspeakers that are as good or better than speakers that cost many times the price. I'm basking in that joy right now and it feels real good!
For those audiophiles who won't consider the VR-4 because the price seems incongruous with world class performance—YOU'VE BEEN WARNED! Sooner or later, some local 'phile, wearing a plaid beret , is going to invite you over to hear his new VR-4 and you're going to experience audio angst in a BIG way!"
