Holger Biermann of Stereoplay Germany describes the Giya G2 in issue 5/12 as being a sculpture worth every cent, which at this level of price is difficult to describe but says it all. He describes the immense soundstage - a very rare quality. The most striking feature of the sculpture is that nothing stands out or to say that the speakers disappear from the chain, because they simply do not have their own sound. The listener enjoys music only - and as relaxed as if he would experience a live performance . What more can you expect more from a speaker?
The Vivid Audio GIYA range loudspeakers have recently appeared in a number of Soundstage! Global articles and reviews with some very positive feedback.

Whether you like the design of this loudspeaker or not: it reproduces on an extremely high level and is a musical gem. It's extraordinary design and form might not fit every living environment but can, when placed freestanding, pass as a sculpture. The choice of materials, sound and quality workmanship of this hand built VIVID AUDIO V1.5 justify the quite high price. Those who seek something special and expect a high musical standard from a loudspeaker will love the V.1!
