Vandersteen VLR Wood Bookshelf Loudspeakers

Hallmark Vandersteen Floorstander Sound in a Smaller Form Factor: Beautiful, Versatile VLR Wood Bookshelf Loudspeakers Perform With Precise Phase Coherence and Spatial Dimensions

Seeking Vandersteen's hallmark floorstander sound but need it in a smaller package? Introducing VLR Wood bookshelf loudspeakers. VLR Wood again meets your needs. Ideal for in-cabinet or true "bookshelf" situations, this compact juggernaut utilizes coaxially mounted drivers to deliver precise phase coherence and spatial dimensions – the traits for which Vandersteen is celebrated. A one-inch critically damped alloy-dome tweeter, advanced first-order crossover, and gorgeous cabinetry round out a design that sounds much bigger than its size suggests. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.

“After tracking through a wide range of recording and musical styles, the amount of realism that the VLRs exhibit is staggering for a pair of speakers at this price. And like the rest of the speakers in the Vandersteen line, they can play loud when required.”
—Jeff Dorgay, TONEAudio, Issue 75, Product of the Year Award (Small Speaker)

Coaxially Mounted Drivers, Alloy-Damped Tweeters
Accurately reproducing the signal from the amplifier requires preserving all of the delicate time-domain relationships that comprise music. Because there isn't enough physical real estate to time-align such a compact speaker, making a time- and phase-coherent speaker in such a small box requires the use of coaxially mounted drivers like the woofer/tweeter used in VLR Wood. The result is all the coherence and dimensional purity one expects from a classic Vandersteen in a gorgeous and versatile little speaker.

Vandersteen: A Legacy of Innovation, Quality, and Purity
Richard Vandersteen's namesake company is synonymous with loudspeaker superiority. The legendary high-end company continues to advance cutting-edge technology. Vandersteen is responsible for making dozens of innovations – minimal-baffle cabinets, bi-wiring, and resonance-reducing spiked feet among them – a reality. Before leaving Vandersteen's California factory, each U.S.A.-built speaker goes through rigorous testing and sophisticated analysis to ensure consistency. Music Direct is honored to carry the entire Vandersteen line, in which all speakers offer tremendous accuracy, natural musicality, and dimensional purity.

I have been a Vandersteen speaker lover for over 20+ years. There is just this crisp clear sound that gets out of the way of the music. I own Signature 3A's and 2Ce Sigs and a pair of 3WQ subs. When it came time for me to get a pair of bookshelf speakers I thought I would take a risk and the Vandersteen bookshelf speakers. So I have just started listening to them, and there it is; that crisp and clean Vandersteen sound just like my 3A's and 2Ce's. I'm really glad I got them.
