I was looking for a VR12, just like you. I called BA to ask what the next upgrade would be from a VR10, they said the VRC (their current model) was more 'of a sideways upgrade' from the VR10. They said best bet was to find a VR12 if I could get lucky... Then he mentioned this rare VR14 (funny thing, is the VR35s pair with it for THX certification, but not the VR40s which I have).
I did see VR12s on ebay, but got a VR14 and another pair of VR40s in one shot (scratches on the side surfaces of the VR40s but all sound great and not a scratch on the VR14).
I would assume owners of the VR12 have the same 'where am I going to put this thing' issues as VR14?
It it full, detailed and really brings movie details to life. I will post if I stumble across another one (if people would like)...
Maybe being located in Boston Acoustic backyard helps with finding some?
