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!

Would love to have a nice pair of desktop speakers!

I have the B&W MM-1s at home and miss not having a subwoofer out. If I win this, it will likely replace the MM-1s.

Kierkes's picture

who would love these forever. I'd take them for myself, but plans to travel the world don't gel well with owning speaker. :)

don't feel like reading the complete rules so if the Sweepstakes are not international skip my comment. However if I win I see a problem with power because in my country (Bulgaria) the power rating is 230v....

If you win you can buy a step down transformer that is not expensive and drop the 230 V down to 120 volts very simply. its just a simple autotransformer with a 2:1 ratio. so.. if you win its not a big problem

I was hoping for an European version

I've been yearning for new speakers.

DaveinSM's picture

I have a pair of M-Audio AV-40s run through an fiio e17 dac out from my MacBook pro on which all my CDs are burned onto ALAC files, I would be curious to hear if these sound better. I use this desktop rig in my home office to play along with tunes on my guitar and amp.

Would love to get a nice pair of speakers for my setup! Can't always wear headphones you know.

jrussell484's picture

Interesting, they have direct inputs for Optical and Coax Digital, so built in Dac, looks like a good and simple do all solution.

utopianemo's picture

I'd sure like to win these!

ArrrrghPyrates's picture

This my entry :)

MikeM74's picture

I need to hear these speakers. Thanks

Hopefully the built in DAC is decent but it does look like it has everything.

I had been considering adding some speakers (although at least a year or two away, for budgeting reasons) of this size to one or two rooms in my apartment. While catching up on headphone-related news after several months away from the audio addiction, these gems showed up on InnerFidelity!! Good luck to all! I do wonder if they would integrate with my Pioneer FS52's. It would be ironic for the surrounds to be more than 3x as expensive as the fronts, lol.

Yoguy17's picture

I could really use a pair of powered speakers!

ClemsonAVFan's picture

Would love to win some speakers.
