Verdict by Hobby Hifi 1/2001:
"Small speakers - big sound." ... "they show a maximum in precision
and clarity, surely not least due to their excellent titanium midrange driver,
proving that even big steps in loudspeaker development are still possible."
Review in Stereo issue 1/2001: "The
sound projected by the small, floorstanding Visaton is surely magnificent."
... "for a loudspeaker designed for a living room the VOX 200, with an
aluminium bass driver, performs surprisingly powerful in the lower frequency
range. This speaker can handle even medium sized rooms due to a slightly subdued
volume but extremely precise performance. The sound characteristic is honest,
without any tendencies towards warmth or coldness, not spectacular and not
adding anything, but certainly full of temperament. The VOX 200 rather possesses
first-class qualities regarding the overall and subtle dynamics and - most
importantly - this speaker doesn't cause any listening fatigue. The midrange
is perfectly clear, vivid and with attention to detail. The sound projection
is almost detached from the baffle, always cleanly focused and shows a realistic
depth and staging. Even at higher volumes the VOX 200 performs with conviction
and never looses track."
Sound score: 74%,
Price / performance ratio of the finished speaker at 3200 EUR: excellent.
