These are the speakers your mother warned you about.
The Vanguards are the premier speaker built by Analog Revolution, and undeniably the best sounding single-driver open-baffle speaker at this price point on the market. We dare you to find a better pair.
Okay, so this will be my last AR link of the night.
We’re building these speakers.
They are cheap, especially compared to their nearest competition.
They are assembled by hand, in my garage. We have a small team that puts them together.
I’m looking for someone who wants to review them. We’ll lend you a pair for a few weeks, you’ll listen to them and write about them (we can pair you up with an editor if you’d like.) When you’re done, we’ll publish the review.
I replaced a pair of Dynaco A25s with these as my main speakers a few weeks ago (The Dynacos are still kicking around in a secondary system in my basement) and I think it was an excellent decision.
[That being said, these speakers are probably the closest in sound I’ve found to my A-25s. The differences are there, but they are much subtler than the difference between the Vanguards and most other speakers. I think it’s the, admittedly excellent, crossovers in the A-25s.]
So take a look. Lemme know if you wanna write a review. If you’re in the Marietta area, get in touch to set up a demonstration (and to buy a pair of your own!)
If you want some, and you’re not in the Marietta area, get in touch and we’ll see what we can work out as far as shipping goes.
