Sologed: What do the auditions tell you? I have heard all and am a dealer for Von Schweikert because I think they are the best, but again, what do you hear?
VR4JR was an amazing performer when I auditioned it the only fear I have is har far from the back wall can you place it to sound its best.
obviously the further away from the back wall the better. In my room I can only have my JR's 12 inches from the back wall. Still sound pretty darn good.
Jtinn, i listen to mostly jazz, poncho sanchez, joe sample,boney james, rick braun,etc and some funk-rock too! and also if you own the jr's, what speaker cable do you use? i need to upgrade if i buy them! i was thincking Satori shotgun by Ac Zen or oval 9's by anal plus! I currently use B&K 7250 series II 200x5, Arcam fmj27A, and Monster Z biwire. thanks!
Jtinn, i don't know if when you write "what do you hear" you want me to say my opinion! i loved the musicality of the speaker and was very surprised! but before i purchase i would like to hear more from people like you guys! dealer & owners of this fine speaker!

I am wondering how the VR4 Jr.s would be in a VAS home theater set up? Does anyone know how they would compare to my Polk Audio LSi15s?
Heard them both...The Adagios in a second!
Conchyjoe7, in a fast second? how much of a diff is there between the two? i would be saving 1or2k if i get the vr4jr and i could use that money to build my ht system! are the adagios in your opinion that much superior? thanks!
I find the Adagios to be amazing. The vr4jr's were just to polite for my taste. These Az's have livened things up immensely.
Kltracey, thanks for your comment! where did you listened to the adagios?
How many watts are the Adagios rated for?
I have the VR2's and was seriously considering an upgrade to the VR4's until I heard the Adagio's at the Home Theater Show in LA last weekend. The Adagio's better the VR's to my ear's for musicality, clarity, extension, etc. In short I am buying them. Frankly, aside from the top of the line MBL system, the Adagio's driven by Red Dragon mono's were the most enjoyable of all the systems I auditioned. I understand why the reviewer in TAS was gushing over these. Best I've heard for the price or even doulbe the price. BTW - that includes the Revel F32, the Hyperion's, Wilson Duette's, Von Schweikert's and many others I've listen to recently. Of course its always a matter of personal preference. Enjoy the hunt.

Heard all three you mentioned, including the VS and the AZ head-to-head about a month ago. It was absolutely no contest- the Adagios blew the VS away.

I had actually gone specifically to listen to the much-heralded VS, and probably would have liked them somewhat had I not been corrupted by two amazing hours with the Adagios immediately before.
