I just wanted to give some impressions of the Vigore's after spending a week with my new pair. I am driving them with a PS Audio Sprout 100. Yeah, I know that the speakers probably deserve better electronics, but the house is off the grid. Everything runs off of solar charged batteries, so power consumption is a primary concern, so class D is necessary. That the Sprout includes a USB DAC and an optical input for the TV makes it a logical choice. Besides, I think it sounds pretty good. I had a chance to use the Sprout with my Martin Logan Vistas in our main place, and it fared quite well.
Most of my listening was with the grills on. They do slightly soften the sound, but I think the speakers sound fine with the grills in place.
The Vigore's sound a lot bigger than their far from petite size would leave you to believe. They don't sound like stand mounts, they are very nearly full range. They are smooth and yet detailed. I seem to hear more ambiance in recordings made it large spaces, than I am used to with my other systems. Vocals sound very natural. The bass is quite strong in our space (20x30) , and if I had a slight criticism it would be that sometimes the bass seems to be a little too much (as if that were possible). It could be that they should be moved a bit further away from the wall, but I'm not allowed to move them any further out. The bass is the most noticeable feature of the speakers. It's strong and detailed with lots of texture. Picking out bass guitar lines mixed with synthesizers and kick drums is no problem. Yet at the same time, all the other instrumental lines are distinct and easy to parse out. Like I said earlier, my main impression is of a sound that is smooth, yet detailed. If you like the treble of brands like Focal and Paradigm, then these may not be for you. But nothing seems to be missing from the treble and it is quite free of grain.
Oh, I forgot to talk about movies. There is enough bass to live without a subwoofer (at least for a while). Movie dialog sounds great even without a center channel. We watched Space Cowboys, Mission Impossible Rogue Nation, and Incredibles 2. All were quite satisfying, and I love the music soundtrack on the Incredibles.
Overall I am quite pleased with the Vigore's. Speakers, more than anything are a matter of personal preference. The sound terrific with music of all kinds and have sufficient bass to be quite satisfying for movies. They look really good in the room as well. For a "compact" speaker that does it all, they may have their equals, but I doubt you could do better.
