Tuning Dots

VTS Tuning Dots
Break-through technology and resonance control

Marigo’s VTS Tuning Dots have been one of the most effective and dramatic steps I have taken to improve my system’s performance. The improvements were not sublte. They brought great transparency without losing musicality. Clarity, dynamics, inner detail, midrange bloom, bass slam and articulation have such an improved sense of openness that they represent a major paradigm shift in resonance control.

Using the Dots on my speakers wrought a greater improvement than any cable or component swap I’ve made in recent years. I was hearing a fantastic transformation.

Application of the VTS Tuning Dots to the window behind the listening seat. This is a large window measuring four feet by eight feet. Improvements in soundstage dimensionality and image clarity were readily apparent, as well as the removal of harmonic smearing.
