Wrapped within GIYA's distinctive shell-like appearance lies an exceptional level of engineering detail and acoustic design sophistication. Every element of the design has been refined to an extraordinary degree to produce the flagship of the Vivid Audio speaker range.
Our definition of GIYA – a myriad of technical details skilfully combined to achieve a remarkable sense of sonic transparency and tonal naturalness together with a uniqueness of design forming its final appearance.
The GIYA G1 is Vivid Audio's top of the range, flagship speaker. Pioneered by Laurence Dickie, the GIYA G1 is a speaker whose deep technology aims at reproducing what's fed to it with absolute fidelity and pristine sound quality. The entire design is enspired by its function and purpose. Experts agree that this is one of the best speakers they've ever heard (Wes Phillips, Stereophile).
