Vivid Audio KAYA 90


A RICH PEDIGREE

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 patented reaction-cancelling drivers and Tapered Tube loading – the same technology we pioneered with GIYA – gives the KAYA 90 its astonishing clarity and articulation in the bass.
 

DESIGN

The curved bass absorber horn is the defining external feature of our GIYA loudspeakers. 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. But we’d be the first to admit such a radical look isn’t for everyone. With the KAYA 90, the horn is still there; for the same reasons, and giving you the same benefits. The difference is that it’s folded back on itself, so it curves round inside the enclosure. So KAYA 90 gives you the same resonance-free sound in the lower mid-range, from a slimmer, more understated profile you may find easier to live with.

A DEEP UNDERSTANDING

With many conventional three-way loudspeakers, it’s possible to tune into the bass, mid-range and tweeter as separate parts of the sound field. That’s something we’ve worked strenuously to avoid with KAYA 90. Using all-aluminium drive units, and crossovers developed and built entirely in-house, we’ve made the transition between drivers totally seamless. We’ve also set the tweeter in a shallow waveguide, so that the sound is projected forwards rather than dispersing sideways. The result is perfect continuity in the sound, and a more focused listening experience unaffected by your room acoustics.

‘'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.’'

''...beautifully engineered and possessed of a wonderfully open and engaging sound, it’s hard not to like the new Kaya 90.''

The music is reproduced with a fantastic purity, and with a dynamic and ability to play loud, which is almost unheard of in size.

''There’s no mistaking a Vivid Audio loudspeaker design – but it’s not only their appearance that marks them out. We reckon you could pick them just as easily blindfolded, from their sound quality.''
