Von Schweikert Audio
Featuring ceramic honeycomb woofers and midrange drivers along with a damped Beryllium dome tweeter.
The VR-55 MkII represents over 40-years of our proprietary sound engineering!
A speaker for every room! This speaker incorporates a rear-firing ribbon tweeter along with our Ambience Retrieval System with Effects Level Control to add the depth found in the concert hall. This Dipolar Design creates a “bubble” of sound rather than a narrow “beam,” generating a huge sweet space.
This 4-way design utilizes our Beryllium tweeters with Ceramic midrange and woofers as well as our rear mounted ribbon super tweeter with proprietary Rear-Ambient Retrieval System. Bi-wire inputs included.
The optional 700-watt Foundation Amp allows you to retain the sonic
signature of your electronics while granting the ability to maximize
bass performance regardless of positioning or room conditions.
The VR-55 MkII Special Edition builds on the award winning VR-55 MkII design while incorporating the highly refined midrange from our ULTRA Line of loudspeakers to deliver increased immediacy and realism benefiting from a specialized network topology and components for seamless integration.
