I listened to them for a while. At first I was unimpressed by the set up; imaging was average at best, and there was no real depth or emotion to the music. The CD did not sound good at all, surprising since Oracle was supplying the CDP/DAC. Once the turntable was fired up things improved considerably: warmth, center-fill, depth, it all seemed to come into it's own. An improvement, but the toes never got tapping though...I went away thinking it was an interesting experience but quite honestly there were better sounding rooms at the show for 1/20th of the cost of the VS rig. I'd take the simple set-up in Gallo's two channel room ($2600 speakers), the Vandy Quattro's ($6500) or the Fostex speakers ($3000) over the VS extravaganza.
