The tunes


The Audio performance of the H2100 is really exceptional and identical to the V2100. Now I did use an EQ preset here, the default sounds way too flat and unbalanced. But realistically that's the way it should be set up. Tuned to my audio preference, Audiophile +2 matches my sound flavor. Dolby is disabled, I like it better that way. The first song is Adele - Rumor Has It. You can dream away in the song with Adele's impressive voice, the V2100 and H2100 delivers alright. Very nice and deep drums, a snazzy bass-line and a clear sounding piano solo tops it off. I can confirm that you will likely need an EQ adjustment to get the sound up to snuff. If you are a beats and sharp treble man, then Audiophile+2 with a little notch extra in the 60Hz and 8000 Hz ranges will probably be your preference.



Once you've balanced out the EQ setting and likely saved it as a default preference then the H2100 pumps out some strong yet dynamic sounding bass, clear voices and an overall excellent sound reproduction.

For our second song we start up Triggerfinger with a cover from Lykke Li's I Follow Rivers. It's really a Dutch/Belgian hit song so... Youtube it. The drummer in this band uses a bassdrum the size of a house, seriously, a hobbit could live in there. It is an acoustic live session. We hear a little grain in the treble but after a second it seems to filter away softly. It could be in the recording. BTW hint also -- listen to Cherry at 4:31 (if you are in a funky rock mood). The stereo image is very stable, clear and comfortable to listen to. It is a wide musical spectrum fully loaded with detailed sound really. With the settings above (perhaps a hint more bass and treble) the Vengeance 2100 provides the best of both worlds, bass and comprehensive treble 

For the final song we pay our respects to Adam MCA Yauch. We load up a FLAC of the Beastie Boys - Three MC's And One DJ. We again use the aforementioned EQ and Surround settings. Not surprisingly we have tuned the audio levels to our preference, and Three MC's And One DJ sounds great. The historic three's voices sound absolutely natural, the scratches make your head tumble in agreement and the bass... well it's just nearing perfection -- MixMaster cut faster. With the Vengeance 2100 it's all about the subtle details, it's great for music with the EQ being used to bring up the bass and tweak treble, 99% similar to its little brother, the V2000 and V2100.
