I do like the idea of sub-out just in case i wanted to go that route in the future.

Thanks
They definitely have great clarity and sparkle. Not overly bright to cause any harshness to the ears though. They cap out at 85dB without distorting. I also feel the bass response is really strong for the smaller size driver. In fact when I'm about 15 feet away from the speakers I feel like the bass response is even stronger.

There are also modifications to the crossover like upgraded capacitors as well as better gauge internal wiring.

I have them and they are clearly better than the verus 1. Voices are clearer and the highs are a little brighter. Same speaker feet, cabinet, etc but the tweeter looks like a new design and the crossovers are supposed to be better.
I sent my ones back to get the twos and I'm happy.

First congrat on your new Verus 2


I went through lots of gear through my audio hobby, almost 40 years now
When you say "clearly better than the verus 1", how much % would you think it did?


From my experience very few products can achieve 50%, most time spending double the money equal to maybe 5%, ($2000 to $4000 AV processor was about 5-10%, more on the 5% side) still an improvement when desire.


And sometime it is just a different sound that we prefer, since no one have the exact taste.

If I had to assign an overall percentage I would say 15%

Does anybody have any particular songs they like to demo while auditioning speakers?

It is probably best to use material that you are very familiar with--and preferably of differing styles.

For sure. Just looking for possible suggestions and tunes to try out.

Does anybody audition between vinyl and CD's? I have a vinyl player but it's not hooked up.

What kind of toe in are you guys using for the verus grand towers. I've got everything set up and I ran audyssey once and things sound pretty good but I think I want to make some tweaks and run it again. Just curious what some other people are using for speaker positions and toe in with them for some ideas.

I've found that I like the tweeters aimed in a way that they will cross paths just behind your head/ears. If you want to get detailed, you can use a laser pointer. However different rooms reflect differently so it may take some trial and error to find the sweet spot for your room.

Would the easiest way be to just play some familiar music in 2 channel mode and keep adjusting till it sounds the best? it'll be used probably 80%tv/movies and 20% music.

Yeah familiarity helps. Also it's usually easier to have a partner so one of you can nudge the speaker a pinch at a time and you can more easily tell when you're in line with the sweet spot.

Even if it's mostly going to be used for tv/movies, there is usually not enough constant sound so it's harder to tell the sound field. Probably best to find the angles using music.
