Vanatoo Transparent One Speakers Sweepstakes

Register to win a pair of Vanatoo Transparent One Speakers (MSRP $499.00) we are giving away.

According to the company:

The Vanatoo Transparent One powered speakers set a new price/performance benchmark in the audiophile world. They produce unexpectedly great sound quality (honest, tight bass down to 48Hz!) from small bookshelf speakers that give you a lot of flexibility in how you use them. They are equally at home as a desktop audio system, a music streaming solution for a room where you want music but not stacks of equipment, or as a compact system you take with you on your weekend getaways.

Just the Facts: 48-20,000Hz +/- 3dB response at 90dB+ over listening window; 5 ¼ inch aluminum cone XBL woofer; 1 inch silk dome tweeter; 5 ¼ inch long-throw passive radiator; 60 watt/channel D2Audio amplifier with integrated DSP; Built in DAC with USB, coax, and optical inputs; Analog input; Volume, bass, and treble controls; Subwoofer output with auto-sensing (removes bass from Transparent One); 3 year warranty; Supported by the people who designed it and know it best!

Great speakers. Let's try my luck

Hope these sound as good as they look. They are powered by a Class D amplifier and the makers don't wish to reveal the THD numbers. Class D amps are the toughest to get a good THD out of but lately with the advent of cheap DSPs (used in the feedback loop) it is possible. So will have to try it out and see.

I like that they have an AirPlay solution on their website. This is what I was thinking of doing if I won these speakers.

Any info on the DAC?

JohnnyCanuck's picture

It would be great if adding my comment(s) entered me in the draw. However, the fine print says that I must be a US resident.

So, I guess that disqualifies me and most of your readers. :(

Belthasar's picture

I'm eager to see how transparent these really are...

Good luck to all!

The XBL^2 based driver in those is said to be a key to their quality bass extension (for their size)

Kevyboy's picture

Listening through the Vanatoo would be like visiting Xanadu. In fact, the first song I would listen to through the Vanatoos would be Xanadu by Rush.

To stand within The Pleasure Dome
Decreed by Kubla Khan
To taste anew the fruits of life
The last immortal man
To find the sacred river Alph
To walk the caves of ice
Oh, I will dine on honey dew
And drink the milk of Paradise

Yes, it would be Paradise to win and enjoy these.

These would really upgrade the sound of my 60" Plasma TV and I could get rid of the separate amp.

dana324's picture

sounds like a great product

EndersShadow's picture

Love me a set of desktop speakers....

blueangel2323's picture

The bass response (48hz at -3db) is pretty impressive for a small speaker. Most manufacturers quote the -10db figure.

Nordfinn's picture

For my new desktop system...

Here's my entry.

These would go far in helping me achieve a downsizing of a big-sized stereo rig to a minimalist, small-scale standalone+computer audio system that works in my new, much smaller digs.

Thanks, Vanatoo and Inner Fidelity!

Dmaster900's picture

Would make a perfect gift for my friend.

gacf2008's picture

Wow, I can use these babies in my living room

kg5q's picture

yes granted it should have a universal input power supply however. Switching power supplies can be noisy in audio systems and since most companies today have the cheapest guys in a far off land design them you are going to get junk more often than not but it will be 85-265 volt input till it blows up. if you win it we can all take up a collection and buy you an isolation transformer as it would not be good if you win something for free then have to spend money to use it. Thats like winning a Ferrari then having to buy gas for it and insure it - thats just not right.

tinmanwpk's picture

How better to exit the wife doghouse than with these babies perched upon the desk. BTW, I'm guessing Cabernet Franc based on the inky color of the red.
