Our newly developed mid/bass driver enables a compact floor-stander with performance comparable to the V60 Series in a smaller, stylish package. V42 is the core expression of the V40 Series idea: compact, high performance, high style, affordable speakers with the great sound Brio is known for. The V42s make a fine stereo pair, and they can serve as the Left/Right foundation of an impressive multi-channel system for music and movies. Just add the other models of the V40 Series (and SW12 or SW15 sub) to tailor a system to realize your aspirations in any room. Simple, organic, beautiful.
