Good solid speakers, they have a real cherrywood finish that HAS GRAIN.
They have a clean elegant sound, they are not powerful, but if you play at low to moderate volumes, they are a decent choice.
And on black stands, they look like a million bucks!
2 things to think about:
1. I hear they are upgrading the VRM line .... its actually about time, they are probably a decade old design.
2. The center channel speaker in the VRM line is kind of wimpy, its only got 1 mid-bass driver. Still a nice sounding speaker, I used to own BAs...
