"VMPS" Floorstanding Speakers; Pair "RM-40"
Product: "VMPS" Floorstanding Speakers; Pair (Similar to RM-40). These speakers were made using remaining VMPS cabinets and parts after the passing of Brian Cheney.

As such, while they share many of the design and sonic characteristics of VMPS speakers (most similar to the RM40's" they are not technically "VMPS" speakers.

Other Notes: These speakers are one of a kind. What we know about them: They were among Brian Cheney's VMPS inventory which was all liquidated as a lot. They are in the same cabinets as the RM-40s and share the same drivers (though these have fewer). The sound is everything you would expect from VMPS - A big full-range with deep bass, but very refined throughout the upper frequencies. Very life-like with a huge soundstage. You'll want t a big listening room for these, but with a little time invested in set-up, you can truly achieve world-class performance from these. The cabinets are as dense as they come... each speaker weighs about 250 lbs.

Cosmetic Ratings - we're often asked "why is your numerical rating so low when the product looks great?" We tend to be very conservative when applying a cosmetic "rating" to products. Virtually nothing is a 10/10 unless it is nearly new and looks factory fresh. Our 8/10 is what a lot of people might call "mint".
