Von Schweikert VR-11 SE MK II
The world's best speaker system? No company has designed a perfect speaker system, of course…and just what would the world's best speaker be, anyway? Would it have powerful, tight bass down to 10Hz? Astonishingly clear midrange and unbelievable transparency? Extremely smooth highs out to 50kHz?
Three dimensional imaging that creates a suspension of disbelief? Incredible build quality and a twenty-year warranty? A speaker so exciting that you want to stay up all night, savoring each and every note?
If these qualities are your personal “Holy Grail” and music is an important part of your life, the VR-11 Special Edition Mk2 is for you!
The VR-11SE Mk2 utilizes our proprietary Acoustic Inverse Replication (A.I.R.) technology, developed by Albert Von Schweikert while at California Institute of Technology. A.I.R. employs our famous Global Axis Integration Network to enable our VR-11SE Mk2 to replicate the inverse of recording microphone signal, thus decoding the dimensionality of the actual recorded event. In combination with our rear-firing Ambience Retrieval System, the VR-11SE Mk2 will provide thrilling realism, so close to a live performance, that you will continue to ask yourself: “Is it Life or is it VR-11?”
