VIVID AUDIO GIYA G3
Vivid Audio mener at det er egenskapene i de lave frekvensene som er premissleverandør til resten av systemet, det er dette nivået resten av systemet må bli justert i forhold til.
Omtaler av Vivid Audio Giya G3
Following on the heels of the $48,500/pair Wilson Alexia, which I highly recommended in my December 2013 review, Vivid’s Giya G3 was going to have to be something special to earn my respect. It did more than that. I immensely enjoyed the time I spent with this idiosyncratically styled loudspeaker. Yes, at $39,990/pair, it is expensive, but for that money you get a combination of transparency and, rich low bass aside, almost full-range neutrality, coupled with superbly precise imaging and an easy-on-the-ear yet revealing balance that proved addictive.
I ended my review of the Wilson by declaring that if I were to retire tomorrow, the Alexia would be the speaker I would buy to provide the musical accompaniment to that retirement. Now I would have to choose between it and Vivid Audio’s Giya G3!
The Vivid Giya G3 is not inexpensive, but few alternatives come close to this degree of perfectly timed transparency.
Technically advanced, sonically superior, and visually unique — Vivid’s Giya models are unlike any other loudspeakers on the market today, and the smallest of the line, the G3, is designed to provide performance similar to its larger, more expensive siblings, but with reduced bass reach and output capability. According to Pete Roth, they’ve succeeded, resulting in the Giya G3 being the second Vivid Audio speaker to be included in our list of Recommended Reference Components.
