VIVID AUDIO KAYA K90
KAYA loudspeakers could only be made by Vivid Audio. Those curvaceous profiles. The patented technology. Above all, that astonishing sound quality, free from all resonance and coloration, that opens the window wide on the performance. And of course, they’re completely revolutionary, in their own understated way. Smooth, clean lines, and a detailed, focused sound that draws you in, holds your attention. Easy to live with. Truly life-enhancing.
Like all the KAYA series, the KAYA 90 shares its DNA with our GIYA loudspeakers. That family connection is immediately evident visually in the KAYA 90’s smoothly curved contours. But it’s your ears that will truly confirm their common ancestry. The KAYA 90 is so called because it has an internal volume of 90 litres. That, combined with its four reaction-cancelling drivers and patented Tapered Tube loading – the same technology we pioneered with GIYA – gives the KAYA 90 its astonishing clarity and articulation in the bass. The curved bass absorber horn is the defining external feature of our GIYA loudspeakers, it’s also present in the KAYA but folded back on itself, so it fits neatly inside. As with everything we do, it’s there for unarguable engineering reasons: it absorbs resonances and coloration, so you can hear every note with perfect precision and clarity.
Kaya 90 has have a midrange that is among the best I’ve ever heard …
Kaya 90 is one of the most impressive products I have had the pleasure of reviewing
wonderfully open and engaging sound, it’s hard not to like the new Kaya 90.
Omtaler av Vivid Audio Kaya K90
This review may seem short for such excellent speakers, but there’s no point in being repetitive or indirect. The combination of traits described above makes the Kaya 90 a true high end speaker, competitive with anything in its price range and better (IMHO) than many in its price range.
I know of dealers who have replaced Wilson Audio with Vivid Audio and that is no small compliment. I’ve been doing high-end audio reviews for the last 20 years, and the Vivid Audio Kaya 90 is one of the most impressive products I have had the pleasure of reviewing. I will be very sad to see this pair go.
