Hey, it’s Jay here. We here at the Vanatoo Haters Association focus on all of the things wrong with the Vanatoo line of products. When I say we, I mean me, but I expect the organization to grow to maybe two to three members within the next five years. The world loves Vanatoo’s products, but not us here at the VHA.
Here are the things I hate, ahem, I mean we hate, about the Vanatoo Transparent One Encore powered bookshelf speakers. Play ball!
I was expecting this speaker to play down to 20hz so I could use it without a sub in my theater room. They should fix that on the Transparent Twos without changing the enclosure size or woofer size.
These don’t have a built-in ultra short throw projector. They should include that on every bookshelf speaker.
Rick and Gary, the owners of Vanatoo are nice guys. Who do they think they are being all helpful and stuff. I have no idea what the word Vanatoo means, but I bet it’s something pleasant. Pssh.
These guys are putting out good products at affordable prices. I expect HiFi companies to create products at extremely high price points. That way, I can look at the speakers from a distance and bring my audiophile friends so we can admire the price tags. You can’t do that with a $599 pair of speakers. Affordable. Yuck!
These sound extremely good especially nearfield. This makes my more expensive speakers look bad.
Thrown out of the Game
These do so much, it renders a lot of my gear useless. What will I do with this power amp, preamp, and DAC now? It’s all built-in to the T1e’s. And to make things worse, they use a proprietary cable for the speaker connections and the power cable can’t be detached. What am I supposed to do with these $10,000 power cable and similarly priced speaker cables?
What are the things you hate about your Vanatoo speakers?
