The J6R doesn’t have a prominent low frequency presentation. The quantity balance leans towards sub-bass that has a good texture and speed. The sub-bass tone is slightly technical rather than being musical or emotional. Hitting to depth ability is quite satisfying, even if it is not the best in terms of extension and decay.
The mid-bass of the J6R is not prominent and can be considered as laid-back. That results in a stage structure that has neutral and clean spaces; and the presentation is very airy in accordance with the treble approach.

The JR6 performs well in upper midrange; notes are neither unnecessarily thin nor bright. In general, monitors that sound with open or bright tone have artificial note releasing problems in upper midrange. The J6R provides a good control in releasing thin notes.

Soundstage and Separation:
The J6R has very clear and quite neutral spaces between instruments in accordance with the mid-bass presentation. The monitor doesn’t have a superb big stage, but it provides an airy positioning. The depth of the stage is satisfying and the width is enough to have a not-congested instrument placement. The background blackness and the coherence might be better, but the separation is good for its price.
