V Dosc packages their speaker systems with their own amplifiers.

JBL VTXs will be packaged with the new crown 4x3500 and V5 presets.

There are probably only a handful of people who have mixed on both systems.  VTX is very new.  VDOSC are over ten years old and have been replaced as the flagship L'acoustics speaker by the K1.

DSP has come a long way since VDOSC was introduced, and though they sound fantastic with LA8 amps, I think that a speaker designed with the knowledge of what corrections are available in DSP should offer advantages over one that was not.

Hello,

  I think that it's a toss-up, that either (K1 or VTX) can be made to sound about the same.... but, I think the biggest factor in the decision may come down to what is easier to purchase and get replacement parts for in your area.  I don't think that anyone would necessarily turn down using either of these systems.

  Good Luck,
  Hammer

Hello,
At the end of the day if the purpose is for rentals then I would think demand (present and predictable future) and upfront cost would be the driving force.
As for my opinion the VTX system kills the VDOCS as it should. As stated above its ten years of advancements in R&D, DSP, and good old design experiance. Not to mention a major part of the LAcoustics team is now at JBL.
The real comparison is between K1 and VTX.  I have not personally mixed on the K1 but I hear great things. It is my opinion that at that level of quality its hard to say a bad thing about either. If you cant make it sound sound great on either PA system then.... it's not the gears fault.
As for amp purchase, both companies will lock you into amp packages. JBL offers their "VRack" it can either have iTech 12000 HD's or iTech3500's. The rack loaded with 12000's is going to give you the most out of the system but it is a much higher initial investment.
Cheers and happy purchasing!

Dale,

Excuse me, but VDOSC was introduced in 1992,  20 years ago by my calendar.

Of course, whether there have been only 10 years of "advancement" in the last 20 years is open to debate.
