Summary: I have owned theses speakers for about 2 years now. I bought them right as they went out of production, if you can find a gently used pair they are well worth the money. I have them bi-amped with a 7 channel receiver. These speakers are very efficient with 93 decibal rating, but they sound incredible when driven with enough power. These speakers have a midrange with a neodymium magnet so the detail this driver creates is incredible.
Summary: I had a pair of VR3's about 2 years ago, and didn't think they sounded all that great, to be honest. I had a pair of BA A150's back in about 1982, and they were Magnificent, to say the least. I use to let people listen to my Stereo back then with the BA 150's, and they were totally blown away. The newer VR3'S can't touch them. I know nobody's going to believe this, but the newer Boston's are not as good as the older ones. I know, I know, I'm a Madman right.
Summary: Great sound, excellent bass and clear highs. great sounstage. Excelled with Billy Cobham "Spectrum". Don't NEED a subwoofer but fine with one. Flaw was I wanted a warmer midrange. Too neutral there. Auditioned these in my living room. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO JUDGE A SPEAKER! I have a VERY BRIGHT soundroom. In my previous dwelling (quite warm) these would have been perfect. Since my walls are 1/8 fake wood, too bright. Great bargain for the money!
Summary: Bought these speakers about 6 mouths ago and was very disappointed. The sound was very tinny and the base roll distorted the music on the low end. tryed to get my money back after 3 days but team would not refund my purchase even that I was not happy with the purchase so dont buy from team.
Summary: My SO and I were unwillingly thrust into the market for audio equipment when the system I'd had since university (NAD 3020, boston acoustics A40s, NAD 502 CD (10 yrs old) and Denon 'table) bit the dust. We comparison shopped for several weeks, and kept coming back to BA's VR series speakers. They sounded better than anything up to $3K/pair, to our ears.
Summary: I have contracted a sickness, of sorts. I have an audio sickness, I think... At least that's what my wife calls it. I think of it more as a hobby mixed with a bit of obsession. I'm searching for a sort of immersion in sound. I love to close my eyes and see a picture painted by my speakers, much wider and deeper than the room can possibly be.
Summary: My entire life I've wanted a great set of speaker's. I'v alway's settled on, as an exapmle, the JBL 3 way with 15" woofer's on salee for $100 the pair, or similar one's, and thought what a wise shopper I was. After browsing all the audio video store's over the year's, I finally realized I am missing something. I purchased the Boston Receptor radio a couple year's ago, and was so impressed with the sound I knew the "Boston Sound" was what I was after.
