System NINE is Richard Vandersteen's radical, total-system approach to audio design, derived from decades of industry-leading research & innovation. System NINE is truly unique in high-end audio in that its components are not just complementary, but literally made for one another. We are thrilled for the fortunate few who dive straight into this entire system with a single purchase. But because the Model Seven or Model Seven Mk II is the entry point, any listener who's been with the Vandersteen flagship for years can start moving on his own path to the Ultimate Vandersteen with System NINE.

We are very proud to introduce the Model Seven Mk II, the newest Vandersteen flagship! The chief improvement in the Model Seven Mk II was achieved by mechanically altering the "acoustic lens" that surrounds midrange and tweeter, aligning the acoustic centers of those drivers just enough to substantially decrease the amount of hand tuning required for the compensation network. The result is even more natural, open sound for a soundstage that is palpably taller, wider and more "3D" in its image focus and specificity. Additional improvements were realized by weaving the voice-coil leads directly into the spiders of the push-pull subwoofer cones in the powered subwoofer, strengthening the connection between the Model Seven MK II's integral power amplifier and subwoofer, allowing increased linear excursion for even greater bass authority in the subterranean (100Hz and below)

Vandersteen Audio's liquid-cooled M7-HPA (High-Pass Amplifier) is the revolutionary next step in power amplifier design and loudspeaker performance. The dramatic reduction in distortion realized by Vandersteenâs patented Perfect-Piston™ drivers (US patent #8320604) made it clear to Richard Vandersteen that the next frontier of speaker performance would only be achieved by designing a radical new state-of-the-art amplifier from the ground up, exclusively for systems employing Vandersteen's time- and phase-correct powered subwoofers and/or powered-bass loudspeaker systems.

Although originally designed as the bass section for a new statement-level speaker the SUB NINE proved to be an outstanding solution as a stand alone stereo sub pair mated with the Model 7 statement floor standing loudspeaker or any high quality speaker. Each sub enclosure features a 13" downward-firing, slot-loaded woofer with a patented cellulose-fiber/foam cone and 400-watt amplifier. These mono subs feature in room-specific adjustments including 11-bands of equalization and an adjustable Q. This means that your system will be specifically tailored to the unique bass response of your listening room and with contour and level controls can sit in a wide variety of locations within the listening space.
