In other words, a plain old rectangular semi-large bookshelf with just a woofer and a tweeter & named the VRB. Ahhhhh, speakers I can understand. These are practically copies of my Boston CR9s I bought in 1998 but mine have an 8" woofer and a fabric dome tweeter. When the brochure said mine had the bass of many floorstanders because of their "DCD" woofer design, when I hooked them up at home I found that this was no marketing b.s. So I'll bet these will sound similar.
