Now in its 8th version since 1977, Vandersteen's Model 2 is among the most wildly successful speakers in history. Well over 100,000 pairs of Model 2s have been sold in that span.
As Vandersteen thought about how to improve this design again, they knew they had already found a way to potentially enhance the sonic excellence and stay true to the mandates. The external barrier strip connection now connects directly to a re-designed circuit board with upgraded components. By implementing this architecture, the result proved to be the best Model 2 to date.The results are improved clarity and better midrange-timbre-accuracy that now fully realize the advantages of the tri-woven composite midrange borrowed from the Treo CT and Quatro CT loudspeakers.
Vandersteen does not rely on listening alone to make claims of sonic excellence. Vandersteen Audio is the first loudspeaker manufacturer to use the Gen-Rad 2512 Fast Fourier Transform Computer Analyzer in research and development and remains a leader for interfacing complex loudspeaker parameters and performance computer analysis with practical design and engineering. The Model 2 series III continues Vandesteen's quest to couple proven technology with advanced materials, construction, and design for a speaker system that is always true to both science and music at a value price point.
