Vandersteen Audio Model 3/3A "Signature" Loudspeakers with Stands
The Vandersteen Model 3A Signature uses four high quality drivers to produce amazing music. The tweeter, midrange, and mid-bass are all forward-firing. The low-bass driver fires from the rear of the speaker. Crossovers are first-order type to maintain accurate phase performance. The midrange and tweeter are physically staggered behind the taut grille cloth to make the upper frequencies more time coherent. On the back you will also find controls for midrange and tweeter levels as part of the crossover/input design.
This set of Vandersteen Model 3/3A Signature started life in 1994 as a standard Model 3, an outstanding performer with an original retail price of nearly $4,000 (we have the receipts!). In 2018, the original owner painstakingly packed his beloved speakers in their original crates and sent them form VT to CA to have Richard Vandersteen perform the latest and greatest updates. The result is essentially a 2018 speaker in a 1994 chassis. Everything was renewed or replaced to meet the 2018 3A Signature standards...Drivers, crossovers, and wiring were all newly installed. (Again, we have the receipts!) The speakers were carefully packed in new 3A Signature cartons and sent back to VT for another 4+ years of careful use and listening enjoyment.
These speakers are in like new overall condition with essentially zero wear. Socks are perfect and the speakers perform flawlessly. Top to bottom integration is extraordinary; large sound field, tight imaging and tremendous amounts of unforced detail. Here is an opportunity to own what is essentially a current model (now priced at $6,300/pair) for a fraction of the cost. Vandersteen steel stands and isolation spikes are also included in the sale.
Demos are highly encouraged in our Lawrence, MA showroom.
$2,499 (plus applicable sales tax)
