DaveMN Posted July 21, 2021 Share Posted July 21, 2021 I bought my first pair of Vandersteen 2s back in the early 80s. Went on to be one of the early buyers of the full surround setup and sub. Had a great dealer, Salon 1 Audio in Wisconsin that is long gone. Still remember the day Richard called me to ask what I thought of the surround system. I was floored that he called. I'm back into audio again and sadly learned my local dealer in the Twin Cities no longer sells Vandersteen. That means a 350+ mile trip to Milwaukee or Kansas City just to audition some speakers. My current setup is a Hegel H120 Amp which I love along with Paradigm 800F speakers that I am selling. I am currently demoing the Sonus Faber Sonetto V. But I really want to get back to Vandersteen, just hard to do when there aren't any local dealers. Trying to decide which Vandersteens to audition and make sure the dealer I visit has them available. My old 2s were great, but I thought they needed the sub (but that was a long time ago!) Now I'm wondering if the 3s or Treos are the best starting point. Scares me that I cannot demo them in my own listening room like I can some other speakers sold locally. Would appreciate any thoughts, it is really tough to not have a local dealer.
