Here's an opportunity to own one of the best speakers you can buy under $100k at a significant discount. These have been my personal pair and I am only selling them because I am moving up the VSA line.

These speakers are just over 3 years old and have been kept in a child free, pet free, non-smoking environment. They are fully broken in at this point and sound spectacular - you can find several reviews and awards for these speaker at the VSA website https://www.vonschweikert.com/vr-55-aktive

Greg Weaver reviewed this speaker and then bought his review pair to have as his reference standard - http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/von-schweikert-audio-vr-55-aktive-loudspeaker/

The adjustable active woofers and the dispersion pattern of this speaker makes it very to integrate into any environment - as does the relatively small footprint. I would rate these very conservatively 8/10 - I see no obvious blemishes though there are some very light scratches in the clear coat. I will try and buff these out.

I will also throw in two sets of Iso Acoustics GAIA I speaker footers which I have been using with this pair - a $1,200 value.

Here are some photos of the speakers - I will upload more photos later tonight or tomorrow:

PM me for pricing information.

I prefer local sale but I have the original shipping crates and can ship these to anyone in CONUS at the buyers expense. Payment via wire transfer only.

Though these are my personal pair, I am a VSA dealer so buy with confidence.

Cheers, Joe

I don't see Ultra-55 on the VSA website. I only see Ultra 9 and 11. Am I missing something here?
They took them off the website for some updates but they’ll be back up soon.

Cheers, Joe
