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 high quality computer speakers, or as TV speakers you will hear the difference! The Transparent Zeros were designed to accommodate your living space regardless of where you use them. When used on a desktop with your computer just place the speakers in the desktop mode so that they tilt up toward your ears, no foam wedges are necessary. When used as stereo speakers for a room just place the speakers in the room mode by flipping them over and they will sit perpendicular to a table or speaker stands. Their compact size allows easy placement so that they don’t draw attention to themselves, until the music starts to play… The Transparent Zero'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 two digital inputs (USB audio and optical) make your music sound even better when directly connected to a Mac®, PC, or other device with digital outputs. And the built in Bluetooth receiver allows you to stream your music wirelessly from any mobile phone or computer. The options are many, the connections are seamless, and the convenience is addictive.

The drivers/amps/DAC/DSP/crossovers are all working in perfect harmony with this system. For the cutting-edge level of technology incorporated into these, I consider them an absolute bargain. For example, each speaker is bi-amped. I can't name ANY other powered setup with a bi-amped PASSIVE speaker. I don't think I'd be able to find a comparable sounding, equally versatile, and equally easy to set up system for under $1000. For a desk, they're perfect. If trying to fill a full room with sound, these may fall short, not getting quite loud enough for impactful listening from across the room. But the sound quality is 100% there.
I also added the small IsoAcoustics stands to the setup, raising them up by about 3.5", and achieved a perfect angle by aiming the stands downward, while the T0's are naturally aimed upward.
Okay these speakers is amazing! They are small and very mighty!
If this active speaker system offers the overall specs you are seeking, just buy a pair and consider yourself lucky you found them. Don’t go for anything else before hearing these little hot potatoes.
My past includes many years designing, prototyping, producing world-class Loudspeakers for some of the most famous high-end audio companies. I’ve been blessed to have been knee deep in high-end analogue audio in its heyday 80/90’s. This was the time the digital format came into existence in audio applications, it was a wild time technologically in audio. I was building some unbelievable loudspeaker systems & developing new technology with some of the best audio engineers in the world. We had a blast.
I place very high value on “value for your dollar” as most do. So when I went looking for a new set of monitors for our computer area I looked at everything out there. I was willing to go to $450-500 but size of the speakers (on the small side) was a serious consideration. The Zero’s caught my eye then my interest after checking its specs…impressive I thought. $299 buys you what in my opinion, is an unbeatable combination of versatility, ease of use coupled with utterly fantastic audiophile performance. Pretty damn cool in my book.
What they are: sonically superb, physically attractive & very solid, moderately small allows diverse installation, handsomely powered, clearly solid engineering, technically head of the pack, input/output for almost any need including built-in Bluetooth Aptx. Now how cool is that?
What they are not: Not for those seeking high volumes and/or bass simulation beyond design spec.
How they sound (not broken in only 72h): balanced, neutral leaning to warm yet crystal clear, very coherent at low AND higher volume (uncommon in small monitors). The soundstage produced by the Zero’s in uncanny. In our install the speakers flank an iMac, one speaker left/right of the screen. This is a narrow separation yet prssnt a deep soundstage extending nicely beyond each speaker, very stable, does not wander or become vague. Also uncommon for a mini bookshelf such as these. Highs are very spacious & smooth offering excellent detail. The mid/bass driver & passive radiator are the real surprise for me. D2Audio amp circuit, It works and works well. Solid, tight and again “smooth” yet crisp. Yes, there may be competing speakers that go lower BUT in my humble opinion also at the expense of clarity, punch & dynamic speed. The drivers are clearly quality and perfectly matched supplying very enjoyable music in all genre we've heard from them
The Vanatoo Zero’s replaced my well used KEF Piccoforte powered desktop speakers, probably going on 8 years old now. A wonderful speaker system that excelled at many things….lower mid/upper bass not one of them yet the KEF’s were as good as anything I have heard for mid level volume music for under $200 (back then). The Zero’s bring a quantum level increase in performance in every sonic parameter. Pretty darn cool.
Hey, evaluating audio reproduction is entirely subjective. Buy whatever you like but don’t kick your self in the ass if you buy something else and don’t first audition these beauties…
I currently us the Zero's with an 8” $159 Pioneer subdesigned by Andrew Jones the Pioneer gets you excellent performance and a decent bottom end that matches the Vanatoos well so far.
Will try to submit a final review in a month or two
Btw...never met anyone at Vanatoo, know nothing of their business.
Blessings to all
I have a $10K+ sound system (5.2) in a large single living area (~14,000 cubic feet including living room, two dining areas and the kitchen) that includes dual SVS PB13 Ultra subwoofers. The Vanatoo/Emotiva combination gives my large system a run for the money. Of course the comparison is not apples-to-apples since the small system is listened to in the nearfield in a ~1200 cubic foot room and the large system is in a much larger space. I work from home and listen to the small system much of the day and have not experienced any listener fatigue. Needless to say, I'm very impressed.
