The fully curved fascia and sides of the VXT series (there are 4-inch and 8-inch models too) are said to reduce diffraction (sound waves reflected into the soundfield). This, coupled with the front port, makes the VXT6s less fussy about placement and affords them a surprisingly wide sweet spot.
They have a pleasing, subtly exciting tone that’s revealing yet easy on the ear. Stereo imaging is great and bass is tight, musical and quite deep. The treble is a tad softer than in some monitors, though there’s no lack of transient snap. A limiter and auto-power-off are welcome inclusions.
We found the VXT6s great to mix on, though the subtle treble roll-off did bug us. Some perceive such a sound to be more natural, though, so check them out for yourself, as they’re undoubtedly a fine set of monitors. Used in conjunction with some acoustic treatment, they could be great.
