Giya G1 Series 2
The one that started it all. Our original product, designed by internationally renowned acoustic engineer Laurence Dickie, the GIYA G1 remains the reference standard for all Vivid Audio loudspeakers, and the entire audiophile world. What you’ll notice about first is its unique curved outline: form following function with rare and complete devotion. But what really stays with you, and keeps you coming back for more, is the sound.
INSPIRED BY NATURE. PERFECTED BY ENGINEERS.
Nature dislikes straight lines almost as much as she abhors a vacuum. She knows that sound travels much more smoothly over curved surfaces; hence the shape of your own ear. Odd, then, that the standard loudspeaker design is still, by and large, a rectangular box. All those sharp edges and right angles produce reflections and resonances – the true enemies of recorded music. Because what you’re hearing isn’t the real performance: it’s a version of it, overlaid with colours and textures the writer and performer never intended. If you want to hear the real thing, you need the GIYA G1.
