Surprising smallish Boston VR-M60
I owned a boston VR-M50 a year back. It caught me off guard on the quality of sound. I always wanted to try the big brother. I finally found a beautiful pair. Do they ever sound beautiful. So much so, I dug into the speaker in greater detail. I put my mic up and ran a few passes and was not shocked at how wonderfully flat they are. They graph beautifully. The low end is remarkable given the size, but it’s there in perfect balance.
I’ve built high end speakers for a great company, so I love to see what’s inside. The cabinets are beautifully made, with very bracing. The tweeter does not have a heat sync glued to it like a expected. It’s placed in a small port directly in the centerline of the port. That’s a lot of cool air being pumped over the heat. sync. What struck me was the cabinets stuffing it wasn’t just crammed in. It was perfectly teased for an incredibly uniform dampening system. This cabinet was loved when put together. This is incredibly rare in my experience with other manufacturers.
If you have not owned a pair and see them pop up for sale, grab em and blow your mind. I have $1.8k bookshelves, several actually, but this Boston is on my stands these days
