    In anticipation of moving to a smaller place, I'm selling my Von Schweikert VR Theater speakers. I'm the original owner, and I've had them since 1999. I have the original box for all of them. I'd prefer to sell at least the main speakers (75 lbs each not including the boxes) somewhere relatively locally. I would deliver them to Northern and central New England, as well as northeast New York state. Anyone farther away would be asked to meet somewhere in the middle, or pay for shipping.

    It is my understanding -- and I've been to the former Von Schweikert HQ in New York -- that these speakers are identical in design and performance to the VR Theater line that replaced them in 2000. The biggest (only?) difference for the 2000 line was a choice of finishes and colored end caps. These speakers are all black. I provided links below for both the speakers I'm selling and the 2000 line, since there is slightly different verbage and nicer and/or non-missing pictures on the latter. Once again, note that these are the all-black versions.

    I think the name and the specs speak for themselves, but let me just add that these speakers are very easy to drive (92dB/1w/1m for the mains, 91dB for the center, 90 dB for the surrounds) and very flexible -- adjustable rear tweeter levels on the mains, adjustable "Vocal Presence Control" on the center, dipole/directional switch on the surrounds.



    Mains
    VR-2000
    [For reference, here's a link to the newer VR-2100.]
    MSRP was around $1700 on these (and $1900 on the VR-2100). I'm asking $750 $650 $575 $525 $450 plus actual shipping -- local pickup/dropoff preferred.


    SOLD
    Center
    LCR-20
    [For reference, here's a link to the newer LCR-21.]
    MSRP was around $600 on these (and $800 on the LCR-21). I'm asking $350
    $300 $275 plus actual shipping.


    SOLD
    Surrounds
    TS-200
    [For reference, here's a link to the newer TS-210.]
    MSRP was around $1000 on these (and $1200 on the TS-210). I'm asking $400
    $350 $325 plus actual shipping.


    Please direct all questions and offers to email -- my email is stevevt at adelphia dot net -- although comments along the lines of "great deal!", "great speakers!", etc. are always welcome [​IMG] .

    I take PayPal, and my ebay feedback is under sdanielsvt.

    I would consider partial trades involving a subwoofer.

    I'm also looking for a front projector and screen.

    Thanks for looking.

    Let me also mention that once I sell these, I'll have an Outlaw 950 pre/pro and a Parasound 855A amp for sale, and maybe a few more things.

    When I sell the speakers.


    It'll be in line with the price they've been getting here -- $600 to $650.

    If you really wanted the Outlaw, you'd make an offer on the speakers. [​IMG]

    The speakers are still available, but I'm no longer looking for a subwoofer.

    Steve,
    Nice talking to you.
    I emailed you re: center.

    Call me before EOD today to let me know if we have a deal.
    I can't reach you on the number you gave me.

    Thanks
