    Anyone use Boston Acoustics VR2 or VR3 towers?

    I have been looking at the Boston VR2's for a while now. I can get them for a decent price. Just wondering if anyone has used any Boston HT products and what you think about them?

    thanks

    Make sure you have a big receiver or amp to push them with, they are relatively inefficient.

    93dB sensitivity doesn't sound too bad...

    Have you listened to them? If not you should before you buy them...

    Alright.

    I never thought there were anything to write home about, but to each his own. You might absolutely love them...

    Go give them a listen and see what you think...

    can you reccomend some nice front tower speakers, and some good surrounds?

    Lawl...

    I listen to the towers on a daily basis at the store. And of the selection at circuit city in respect to floorstandings, they're by far the best. They can take a good amount of power, 250W IIRC, and the 805 we have at 130W pushes them decently enough. Vocals aren't the greatest, but mid-range and mid-bass are pretty good, smooth and failry detailed and accurate...

    Just my $.02 though.
