I know a friend who has a third hand pair of Virgo IIs - very happy with them. Great image. Don't push them too hard - thats all.

An unqualified YES! They still sound great, although I have replaced the terrible binding posts they came with.
Otherwise, no worries - they are ageing beautifully.
Your VTL will be perfect for these, and I agree with Shadorne, just don't head bang with them, and you'll be in love, possibly forever!
Go forth and enjoy!
The original Virgos are 10 years old. The IIs are 6 or 7 years old. Mine were manufactured in 2002. I drive them with Pass Labs X-350 Amp & X-1 Pre. I'm 52 and listen to some old Rock, Led Zeppelin,Jethro Tull,etc. at concert SPLs. They show no fear of power and no sign of wearing out! I've hurt myself listening to one of the definitive moments in Rock&Roll history, the Bridge on Dazed and Confused, Led Zeppelin 1, with John Bonham's drums taking the air out of you and Jimmy Page ripping off the neck of his Guitar. I am wearing out at a much quicker rate than my Virgos!
