Vandersteen are among the most ubiqitous of audiophile speakers...something like 85,000 pairs of 2 models alone are out there. Next, Vandersteen is constantly making improvements and new lines. But not all the old models are upgradable, so alot of people dump their old ones to buy the new, better model. That being said, they are popular for a reason. They are truly wonderful speakers that excel particularly with regard to jazz and classical etc as they are very warm and laid back. Combine this with the fact that there are many old 2 models, which are still great speakers, that you can pick up for about $500 per pair and you have a great bargain in audiophile speakers. You can't go wrong with Vandersteen...except that they are kind of ugly. And their service center is pretty good too. Richard Vandersteen answers many of the info. requests.
