Vanatoo brings audiophile quality stereo sound to every budget. Enjoy music the way it was meant to be, with full deep bass, clear and articulate mids, and shimmering highs. Auditions of Transparent One powered speakers bring smiles of “That’s what I’ve been missing.” Whether you use them as a bedroom/living/dorm room system or as studio monitors, you will hear the difference!
The Transparent One’s were designed to look good in your living space. They combine classic real wood veneer in your choice of finishes with contemporary styling to blend seamlessly into your décor. Their compact bookshelf size allows easy placement so that they don’t draw attention to themselves, until the music starts to play…
The Transparent One’s features let you easily connect to virtually any music source. The 3.5mm mini-jack allows direct connection to an MP3 player, Apple iPod®, iPod dock, tablet, TV, or nearly any other device with an analog output using the included cables. The three digital inputs (USB audio, coax, optical) make your music sound even better when directly connected to a Mac®, PC, or other device with digital outputs.
Wireless streaming is supported through your choice of external adapter, so that as wireless standards change, your speakers won’t have to. Most wireless adapters can be set up to use your smartphone or tablet as both a source and/or remote control, making the most of the devices you already have. The options are many, the connections are seamless, and the convenience is addictive.

I listen to classical music from the terabyte+ of MP3s I have saved (VBR rates up to 224 Kbps), while sitting at my computer desk. The speakers are placed at the places where they fit.
It's a small room, maybe 13 feet square.
I've been listening to Logitech Z-2300s and they were OK. Small room, three feet from my head. Subwoofer.
The Vanatoo T1s are several orders of magnitude above any other small speakers I've heard. This is a totally different experience. Everything I've been listening to before seems like I heard it through a pillow. (I'm not sure I've heard anything better, anywhere.)
A pro: they are profanitying amazing!!! I turned off the equalizer in itunes and everything I've listened to is so clear and distinct. I feel like I'm in Bach geek heaven. I've sampled orchestral, choral, arias, piano, harpsichord, organ and side 2 of Abbey Road.
A con: They cost $500
A pro: They only cost $500!
I haven't even burnt these things in yet, It's just been 4 or 5 hours.
If $500 won't make you skip your kid's doctor appointment, then you should get these if you like to listen to music at your computer (or anywhere, but these seem designed for a small situation) and want to experience music that is more intimate and clear than if you were wearing top of the line earphones, without the drawbacks of earphones.
They seem perfect. They are just 10" tall. How can sound like that come of of a 10" tall box? I might try plugging in a subwoofer, but so far it seems unnecessary.
$500 was more than I would normally spend on something like this, but they are absolutely worth it.
I am having a hard time writing coherently because I am hearing Mozart as I've never heard it. Jeez. These are fantastic.
Thank you Vanatoo for the big grin I will be wearing for quite a while.
UPDATE (July 2, 2013): It's been one whole week. They are still fabulous. Best speakers I've ever had. Seriously, if you have the money and you listen to music at your desk, get these speakers. They will sound better than you thought possible. Completely worth the money.
UPDATE (Feb 9, 2014): Nothing new to report. I don't post a lot of reviews on Amazon. But I LOVE THESE SPEAKERS! Every time I listen to them I am reminded of how happy they make me. If you have speakers attached to your computer and you listen to music on them, buy these speakers! I can't think of anything I have ever bought that has been so clearly better than an alternative. Why did I update this? Because if my review can get one person to buy these, I know that I will have done a good deed. BTW, still no subwoofer, because I don't have the room under my desk for a decent subwoofer and it doesn't seem necessary. (Mozart don't need no stinking subwoofer.)
What I like about the The Vanatoo Transparent Ones:
- Love the sound. It's very tight. I'm hearing things in my music that I didn't before.
- They sound great at both low and high volume levels thanks to the Class D amp.
- The fabric grill gives them a sleek look so they blend in with my desk top (without shouting "look at me!")
- Connecting via USB allows volume control from the Mac with a fully digital connection. Previously I had to use analog to get Mac volume control or use an optical digital connection and change volume level just on the speakers.
- Great bass (down to 48hz) for speakers of this size.
- Smaller than my previous speakers.
- The speakers offer a subwoofer out, but if you use it the crossover is fixed at 125hz, even though the bottom end of the speakers is much lower. The DSP in these speakers is customized for their characteristics, not for those of the sub. Finding a sub that matches the quality of these speakers and works well with them might be a challenge.
- The box did not include a USB cable.
In the first hour, I have had them hooked up on Fiber Optic only. They have not fallen asleep, but I have not given them the chance to do so. Everything I have thrown at them is absolute perfection. I am more than impressed.
Steely Dan = Just absolute perfection
The Fix = Awe inspiring
Frank Zappa = Frank would wholeheartedly approve of these speakers
Rush = Even with foam under them, everything on my desk is moving around from Peart's drumming :-0
Pink Floyd = I'm speachless
Peter Gabriel = I'm sure all of my neighbors are shocking the monkey right now
In my opinion, they are worth every penny!
