Bottom Line:   
I have owned these since 1997. Bought new. An excellent speakers, used for Video setup with full set of VR speakers. VR2000 sub. VR12 center, VR Pro sides and Boston inwalls rear.

Integra 9.9 Receiver 7.1 channel setup. One hell of a Movie experience.

I use Von Schweikerts 4.5 in my music setup in another room. So I have a great comparison.

I would buy them again!

Bottom Line:   
I upgraded these speakers with hifibuy's 1 year speaker trade up . I had boston vr-20
s and had the option of upgrading to these and only paid about $700 in total for them. I think for $700 i got a great deal. These speakers are as good sounding speakers as i've heard in a while. I used to work at SoundAdvice in miami, and i've heard many a speaker. I like the kefs as well, i think for jazz, classical, even latin jazz/salsa these speakers sound really nice. If you can find a pair on ebay/audiogon for a decent price pick them up, you won't be disappointed.

Bottom Line:   
i have had these speakers since 1996. i dont listen to them every day, but when i do listen they bring out the emotion of the music out of my old cd's collection like no other speakers i had the opportunity to try. the mid-range is sweet and so seducive that i listen to them hours at times when i do listen. and they havent had a problem thus far.

for home theater, they work flawlessly with other ba speakers. they are hard to be beaten with my setup. see the associate products used below.

highly recommonded. if u looking to spend under $2k for a pair of stereo speakers, then these sleepy boys can't be beaten. the new boston vrm floor standing speakers are at least $2k a pair. can't wait to compare them to my sweet vr40.

Bottom Line:   
This is one of the most underrated speakers that were on the market in the 90s. With the use of a digital sound meter and the naked ear, I compared these speakers with some of my audiophile friends' speakers (the brands mentioned above), and the frequency response was strong and consistent from 30 hz to 20 mhz unlike the others. Also, a fuller, warmer sound is emitted by these speakers than any other mainstream speaker line under $1500 that I could test. These Boston Acoustics VR-40s sound more full than any current BA speaker models, and so I'm proud to own these babies for incredible home theatre sounds and for strictly stereo reproduction of the finest jazz and rock albums in history.
