System NINE is Richard Vandersteen's radical, total-system approach to audio design, derived from decades of industry-leading research and 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, Model Seven Mk II, or Model Seven XTRM 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 the System NINE modular approach. The price shown includes the Model Seven XTRM.
IT'S ALL IN THE TIMING. The Model Seven XTRM continues a tradition of pushing time-and-phase correct audio reproduction to the ultimate extreme. With new pistonic side-firing drivers matched to the patented mid-range and tweeter, the XTRM brings further clarity and harmonic accuracy in a way that surprised the designers and the expert listening board. Give yourself a treat and take a listen soon. Full XTRM updates are available to the original owner within the USA, and the cost is $30,051 to $45,633, depending on the vintage of your Model Seven.
