VIVID AUDIO GIYA G1
Innpakket i Giya serien sitt særegne utseende ligger et eksepsjonelt nivå av ingeniørkunst og et akustisk design av meget høy klasse. Hver minste enhet i designet har blitt videreutviklet og forfinet i flaggskipet Vivid Audio Giya G1.
Giya G1 er et mylder av tekniske detaljer for å oppnå et tonalt naturlig og åpent lydbilde.
Basskammeret er buet for å hindre stående bølger, og for å spare plass. Den dråpeformede front baffelen reduserer kabinettets refleksjoner.

Omtaler av Vivid Audio Giya G1
Is Vivid Audio’s G1Giya the best loudspeaker I’ve ever heard? Yes. And it will be my yardstick from now on. Whether or not you can afford a pair, you should listen to them so that you know exactly what is possible in a high-end loudspeaker.

began this review by talking about the highly original way the Vivid G1 Giya looks and segued into a discussion of the speaker’s profuse technology. But it is the Giya’s sound that steals the show, conveying music with obvious neutrality, an unadorned midrange, quick transients, and deep, powerful low frequencies. Yet, while it’s easy to hear all of these things, the Giya didn’t reduce the music to them. It brought its considerable strengths together into a sonic portrayal that never descended into the clinical parsing of the music. Even with a very worthy competitor in my house at the same time, I spent a number of memorable weeks with the Giya, listening to music both new and old, often hearing it in new and more distinct ways.

In my room, though, the Giya G2s fit perfectly and the pair’s bass performance riveted me, so that’s what I’d choose. Whichever one you end up with, though, I’m confident of this: you’ll have some of the best speakers you can buy, regardless of price. .
