Wonderful pair of Vandersteen Treo Loudspeakers. Many great reviews. Very musical with a magic midrange. Speakers are 8/10 or 9/10. Grills have some imperfections from the previous owner. There are some holes not visible from a couple of feet back. Vandersteen can recover for $350.00 if you want them perfect.  From the manufacturer:

The Treo is essentially a passive version of the original Quatro Wood, sharing the same driver complement sans the powered-bass system. It too is offered in an array of wood finishes in a strikingly attractive form factor.  But the Treo is also a modern take on the legendary Model 2, a paragon of cost-effective performance that's made in the USA, but in an elegant outer package.

The Treo is a time- and phase-correct full-range loudspeaker. Because such great demands are placed on the drivers in Vandersteen’s first-order speaker designs, the Treo’s drivers are the kind of highly advanced transducers typically found in cost-no-object designs. The proprietary transmission-line loaded tweeter and Vandersteen’s proprietary Reflection-Free 4.5” midrange driver break up energy from behind these drivers before they can pass directly back into the room and to the listener’s ears. The 6.5” Tri-Woven woofer offers superior transient response and definition in the crucial lower-midrange/midbass frequencies, with the bass foundation supplied by the ported, carbon-loaded 8” woofer with an ultra-long motor assembly.  

The impedance-compensated crossovers are ultra high-performance designs featuring extreme-quality parts and individually tuned in an anechoic chamber. Vandersteen’s Minimum Baffle enclosures ensure maximum rigidity, free of time-smearing reflections and diffraction. All of this technology allows the Treos to offer the kind of exceptional resolution, imaging and natural musicality Vandersteens are known for. Many great reviews....

"... the whole of the Treo's performance is more than the sum of those parts. There was never a recording that I didn't enjoy through these speakers ... Highly recommended." -John Atkinson, Stereophile
