Vaughn Speakers


Building a system around my next speaker purchase and would like to hear from any past or present Vaughn speaker owners. Also impressions from those who have had an opportunity to hear them are welcome.

All comments welcome.
Are you referring to Vaughn Loudspeakers in CA? If so, his new speaker with plasma tweeters are perhaps the best top end I have ever heard period. They radiate 165 degrees and no moving mass....flat to well beyond 50K, and maybe to 100k. Remarkable sound. Detail, space, and no edge to the sound. PT
Plasmatech,yes I am referring to Vaughn Loudspeakers of Ca.
Appreciate your response and hope to hear from others.
I've heard them at several shows, with and without the plasma tweeter. They are excellent speakers. Company owner Jim Jordan is a nice straight-forward guy. I have not heard the line array model.
I've not heard the Plasma tweeter, but spent a lot of time at 2012 RMAF listening to Jim's then flagship speaker. As I was considering downsizing from 400 lb Monoblocks and Soundlab speakers, to hand held amps and Jim's highly efficient speakers, the Vaughn's were sonically very appealing!

I ultimately choose to upgrade & stick with Soundlabs, but if I didn't, Vaughn's would have been on my very short list. BTW, I bought my original Soundlabs from Jim.

Furthermore, I more than agree with the previous poster's comments regarding Jim! He formerly was a brick and mortar audio store owner in my part of the country. There, I got to known him quite well and learned more about this hobby from him than from anyone else, or anywhere else. First and foremost he was a consummate hobbiest, rather than a salesman for sales sake! He thrived on quality playback and had an uncanny knack for getting the best out of equipment and rooms. Over considerable time and with numerous instances, I came to trust and value his opinions. I found his opinions as unbiased as any one of us ever can be. And no, I'm not related to, nor connected to Jim in any way! He's simply one of the good guys in this hobby and although it has been several years since he left the Midwest for CA, I still miss him and his store!
