If there were a real battle between nature and science to be fought, then one most important warrior of science would doubtlessly be the Von Schweikert Valiant VR-10 MKII loudspeaker. It simply packs so much ultra-advanced sound technology that some could very well ask if such a work was indeed necessary.
Audiophiles and sound engineers would then smile and say yes: the Von Schweikert The Valiant VR-10 MKII is the living proof of over-engineering upon sky-high technological goals, everything packed in a set of loudspeakers so powerful and so accurate that there will pass a long time until their specs would be overcome.
The Von Schweikert The Valiant VR-10 MKII is a loudspeaker system that comes with 4 large towers that will create an unbelievable atmosphere in the room they'll be placed. The greatest difference between the Von Schweikert Valiant VR-10 MKII and the rest of the loudspeakers, even in the same price range, is the extreme care given for the mid-bass acoustic range, the one the engineers and researchers at Schweikert have found “guilty” of the real monumental sound in live conditions.
The Von Schweikert Valiant VR-10 MKII sports two subwoofer towers, each packing four 15-inch bass drivers blasting from unearthly 10Hz to 100Hz, but which feature a crossover point at 60Hz to ensure a seamless bass-to-mid-bass transition other speakers can barely dream of. Each bass tower sports its own amplifier with 2,000W RMS peak and pumping monster sound in the carbon/ABS cones of the speakers. This combination makes sure the membranes will not flex and will not distort even at insane volumes.
The mid-bass array sports four 8.5-inch aluminum cone drivers in each tower whose response is crossed-over with the subs' one and thus providing a simply un-replaceable sonic imaging for both music and vocals alike. The upper midrange sector is covered for by very rare Aerogel drivers hand-made in France from carbon fiber, Kevlar, cellulose acetate pulp, and a ceramic binder, ensuring an unbelievable lifelike sonic response.
The upper region of the audio spectrum is covered by an array formed from two 1.5-inch dual-ring radiators flanking a 2-inch-tall ribbon tweeter in a vertical d'Appolito-type arrangement. This ribbon unit can drive up to a mind-blowing 100kHz frequency that will simply sound unearthly clean and pure, like sounds materializing out of thin air and coming to life in an almost surreal way.
The Von Schweikert Valiant VR-10 MKII sells for $85,000 a set and once you've listened to it you'll be charmed.
