Lightbulb Von Schweikert Audio, VR9 Special Edition Loudspeaker

Albert Von Schweikert
design goal for the last 20 years has been to recreate a simulation of a live musical event.

Not satisfied with conventional technology that he felt had been exhausted,
AVS's recent research indicated that more realistic sound quality c
ould be obtained by replicating an acoustic inversion of the microphone's signal.

After all, it is the microphone's signal which is recorded, not music itself.

Our flagship VR-11SE is a large speaker by anyone's standards,
being over seven feet tall and weighing about 900 pounds per side.
Using four 1,000-watt subwoofer amplifiers and 24 drivers per system, it is easy to see why many audio critics have called the VR-11SE "the best speaker in the world", with a bandwidth of 10 Hz to 100 kHz, incredibly low distortion, and 99dB sensitivity. Many of our customers wanted this type of sound in their studios and living rooms, but needed a smaller version that would accommodate space limitations for both acoustics and aesthetics.

Our response was to develop the VR-9SE.
The VR-9SE has the same bandwidth and transparency of the larger sibling,
but in a smaller and very attractive package.

I suggest a group buy of VR-9SE
If we can get together 5-10 diyAudio persons
I think Albert Von Schweikert may let us have upto 20% off the price ($75,000).
At least this is my initial offer to him,
when negotiate a good bargain for us.

Can we get 100 pieces ( 50 stereo setup )
then may be getting very low price.

I will personally test listen to some of these von Schweikert
and also have a closer look at drivers.
Just to make sure is no fakes!!!!

Given the markup in their products I would assume you could get them for much less...witness the Unifield 3's for $15,000 with about $1500 in parts.

How about a group buy for the clone drivers, this is a DIY forum after all....
