I have now found out that unfortunately the bass improved VSx speakers both WHF & HFN reviewed were fitted with Indian EADS inferior made drivers and compensation applied to correct was not successful. Fortunately I have a pair with the Swedish made Jordan Watts drivers and they are simply superb. however I have now switched in the adjustable treble unit. The original HFN review gave these speakers a 85% sound quality rating also praised by Hi-Fi Choice and this was before cabinet TLS improvement.
I do not recognise What Hi-Fi? review of the Aurousal VSx transmission line speakers. I find them superb and probably the best value on the market. The Jordan drivers are full range and I do not find the tweeter is needed. They are very elegant to look at taking up little floor space being only 8" wide. I prefer them to many overpriced speakers especially from PMC , B& W, KEF and Monitor Audio. One Hi-Fi shop manager visited my Home and he agrees that soprano voice is clearer on the Aurousal VSx than any of the well known brands he stocks. In this instance take no notice of the What Hi-Fi ? review and try and audition these fine speakers for yourself, you will not be disappointed.
