MarkAudio-SOTA Viotti One Review
MarkAudio-SOTA is a luxury audio brand that combines years of experience in the electronics and consumer video industry to produce some of today’s most desired speakers. The company’s flagship model, Viotti One, delivers pristine sound quality with an elegant design fit for any space.
MarkAudio-SOTA’s Viotti One Speakers are capable of reproducing a fuller sound by eliminating the coloration caused by interference between drivers. This is in part due to the “all-range” design which allows each driver response, and also because both drivers can produce full frequency waves without any distortion or interference with one another – even when they’re acoustically isolated.
The 2-inch Sota-5 tweeter features an aerodynamic chamber that maximizes high-quality sound while minimizing turbulence at higher frequencies. Meanwhile, their low-frequency 4.4-inch Sota 11 driver, boasts a ported cabinet for improved bass output, even as it minimizes acoustic resonance noise thanks to its more durable materials. With a well-defined bass response and punchy lows, the Viotti One’s sound is exciting to listen to! The mid-range is balanced between highs and lows so that vocals are clear while never harsh or overpowering even at high volumes.
The Viotti One is not your average speaker. MarkAudio-SOTA recommends a run-in time before they reach their maximum potential, which is 100 hours at low volumes. Following this guideline will ensure you achieve optimum performance and maximize the life span of these amazing speakers!
One thing is for sure: the sound quality of these speakers is unparalleled. The rich, full tones and deep bass make this a perfect choice for anyone who loves music!
Inspired by 1950s minimalism, the Viotti One speaker is a stunningly beautiful addition to any living space. Available in white or black piano lacquer finish (as pictured), as well as a light or dark oak finish – these speakers will help complete your sleek home décor with their geometric detailing and luxurious design. The speaker cabinet is made with special laminate construction, which eliminates unwanted coloration and stiffness. Plus it looks good too!
The Viotti One speakers have a sweet spot and you’ll want to find the perfect place for them in your room. Positioning these gorgeous pieces of art is as important as the speakers themselves. You should start by placing them at 8 – 10 feet apart with at least 4 inches between any back surfaces facing towards where you typically sit. This will give optimal sound quality, but every room has its own challenges so it might take some experimenting to get that perfect listening position just right!
MarkAudio-SOTA’s Viotti One speakers are created to be a perfect fit for your listening preferences. The included speaker stands offer a height of just shy under 40 inches, so they’re already at an optimal seated listening position. If you prefer to place them by themselves, the Viotti One speakers also have mounting spikes which guarantee maximum isolation and stability no matter where it’s placed.
