some listening fun...
« on: October 16, 2006, 08:11:06 AM »
I got to hear the VR1s in my living room yesterday, swapping out my Epos M12.2's from time to time and then back in place.

unfortunately, the VonSchweikerts were not broken in, so their dymanics appeared limited when compared to the Epos.
tell you what though, they throw a soundstage that is unreal.  what would image right next to the Epos's outer edge would be 3' outside the speaker w/the VR1s.  It was quite impressive.  A very liquid mid-range as well.

The Epos's were not "bested", but rather a totaly different presentation.  Not good, bad or otherwise, just a different approach.  chocolate and vanilla sort of thing.

In any case, I want VR1s (as was my innital intention) and the Epos's are in the yard sale. 
a quick turn around for me, I think I only had them for a month.  I just liked the sound of the VR1s w/the rest of my gear, even not broken in.

LMA recordings and what-not

Live music: hauling around a Marshall stack whose output will get squeezed through a single SM57, then mangled by a Guinness-soaked mixer and shoved through suspicious-smelling power amps into a pair of grungy cabinets whose best days were before they left the factory, all of which are under the control of an engineer who would much rather be at home watching television.
