Could have but wanted everything to be in order before really getting in to listening.... a little OCD that way:)
But now things are in order, speakers spiked (nice included spikes, very substantial),
Toed in slightly...
Audyssey has been rerun.......interestingly Audyssey set the VGTs to Full Range... which I've changed to a 60hz crossover...
Rarely does Audyssey in my Denon 4311 set any speakers to full range...
So that means Audyssey thinks the VGTs have usable bass down low, really low,
and I concur...
A quick check with Stryke's Basszone CD showed solid bass down into the upper 20's.
Needless to say I've set the VGTs to Full Range for 2/channel Stereo listening.
Anyway sitting here listening to Norah Jones Come Away with Me SACD....
Center image is BACK... where it belongs.
In fact these babies are imaging champs,
placing instruments all across the front soundstage, (which is huge and deep),
with Norah's vocals dead center, surrounded by well placed instruments...
the VGT's have a way of bringing this, imaging and soundstage, out,
making you take notice of just what is going on,
much like a live performance does.
pretty cool stuff..... I think I'm going to like these speakers:D
After Norah I wanted to listen to something that might give more insight to just how good the bass of these speakers is....
So I turned to another of my old favorites, Boz Scaggs Dig.
Miss Riddle, one, of many, of my favorite tracks...
you VGT owners have to listen to this track,
a lot is going on here and the VGT's really let you listen to it all!
piano in the background, cymbals, trumpet and of course Boz.
Crazy good... I had to listen to it several times just to confirm
how good it sounds through the VGT's.
Things heat up with Get On The Natch.
Yes the VGT's have bass and lot's of it
powerful, deep, yet controlled... perfect!
Again I can't get over how easy it is to listen into the song,
picking out and following individual instruments.
Next up.... Desire
When I first heard these speakers, even when things weren't quite right with my setup,
the first word that came to me was "Texture",
while doing their thing, playing music, I feel like they are doing their best to get out of the way of the music.
In so doing they let you hear deeper into the recording.
By getting out of the way, they leave behind the music with all its Texture....
Just check out the last track of Dig.. Thanks To You... WOW
Anyway I'm out of control here, could go on and on....
Let's just say I'm extremely excited about these speakers.
Beautiful to look at....
even better to hear...
