    Selling for a friend of mine. They are in excellent condition and sound fantastic. No need for a subwoofer with these speakers and they take up very little floor space....due to their narrow and sleek profile. At this time I'm only considering a local sale. I live in Northern MA. They are currently at my house and the wife wants them out. The first $325 takes them....and scores a very good deal! Please email or PM with any questions. Thanks


    Info:
    Integrating the subwoofer within the floorstanding VR965 accomplishes two feats. One, it saves space over using a separate sub. And two, it created a system that lets you better control the overall sound. The VR965 features a side-firing 8-inch DCD bass unit, a 4-1/2-inch copolymer midrange driver and our much touted and highly accurate 1-inch VR aluminum tweeter with AMD. The VR965 features a line-level subwoofer input for use with Dolby Digital systems, and our exclusive BassTrac® for distortion-free bass at any listening level. Inside is a crossover with audiophile-grade bypass capacitors for a clean, articulate signal. Cabinets are made of MDF, for near-zero resonance. Outside, a sleek cloth sock grille conveys the speakers' sound, as well as a sense of style.

    These speakers sound absolutely great. Sorry I'm not in the market for any new main speakers, but I actually went into Tweeter to get these over the summer. I ended up robbing them of their lsat pair of Vienna Acoustics Bach's for 75% OFF, so I can't complain.
    Anyone looking for a good review of these speakers, it's not tough to find.
    Best of luck selling them,
    Karl

    Thanks Karl. They really are great speakers. I've been listening to them for the last couple of weeks and wouldn't mind keeping them myself....but I have one too many toys at the moment! Great low end....each speaker has a side firing powered sub built in. I payed more for my subwoofer alone than I'm asking for these speakers!

    Price lowered to $350

    Great Speakers I used to work at Tweeter and the Vr965 were one of my favorite speakers I used to sell and I own them myself. Best of luck on the sale of them
