VIVID AUDIO KAYA S12
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.
KAYA S12 delivers like any Vivid Audio loudspeaker a fine-detailed, transparent sound. The small footprint makes it the perfect studio monitor or a sophisticated loudspeaker for use in a multichannel system. Charming like the V1 from OVAL range, but built with technology from GIYA loudspeakers, KAYA S12 is even more an accessible way to bring the transformative Vivid Audio approach to the music you love the most.
Crucially, and despite its diminutive 12 litre internal volume, the KAYA S12 uses the patented exponentially tapered tube loaded reflex, first developed for its much larger sibling, the GIYA G1, but wrapped around the inside of the enclosure in such a way as to absorb resonance in all directions. Enjoying this near-ideal loading is the newly-designed long throw C100D driver delivering clean precise bass and uncoloured transparent mids to a surprisingly high level. High frequencies are handled by the same tapered tube loaded high-performance D26 tweeter used throughout the entire Vivid range. KAYA S12 is moulded from composite material available in a range of standard and custom automotive finishes.
