Stereoplay May 2012 Stereoplay - May 2012

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?

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!

B1 in Stereophile October 2011 Stereophile - October 2011

In his column, John Marks concluded that the VIVID B1 has a "near perfect balance of warmth and information". In the competive run JA mentions Wilson 's Sophia Series 3, Thiel CS3.7, Revel Ultima Studio 2 and Salon 2 and KEF Reference 207/2. "These are all first-class loudspeakers, whith any of which I could live happily ever after. But if your room is of small to medium size, and you want a less obtrusive speaker (though its idiosyncratic looks do come into the equation), and you value clarity and overall musical communication over gut-busting dynamice, the VIVID B1 is one of the best choices around. I loved what it did!"
