I personally would suggest the Soliloquy. I owned VR4 for 3 years. They did some things very well, others not so well. The VR1 are made in China, and fit and finish are likely not as good as Soliloquy, whose cabinets are incredibly well made. They are crafted in North Carolina. I own 5.3, and C3, and have a pair of 5.0 on order. I have just signed on as a dealer for them in Hawaii, I am that impressed. Sold the VR4 several months ago, don't really miss them at all. If the price is lower and you can get the gorgeous stands, i would consider the Soliloquy. Feel free to email me if you have any questions.
