Ozzy62 - You really hit it on the VR-2's. I have a pair that has around 200 hours on them and your description is very accurate and well put.
I'm finding that the treble is just beginning to smooth out but sounds like it has a little ways to go. I'm really impressed with the depth of bass of the VR-2's and the very balanced integration it has with the mid/highs. Nothing dominates, just a very well balanced sound. Its nice to have so much detail, but in a very natural, easy to listen to way. Nothing fatiguing about these speakers. I also found that 25lbs. of lead shot in each speaker, use of the spikes, and taking the time for proper set-up as instructed in the manual kept adding more to the speakers. The depth and sound field of these speakers is almost holographic.
I'm also pretty amazed at the VR-2's for the price. If I didn't know, I'd guess they were at least 2x what they go for.
