I like the Giya looks but Kaya is really not my taste... hmm did D. Lawrence visit Singapore and found inspiration from Ya Kun?

at start, i didn't like the looks of any of the vivid speakers. just found them a bunch of 'weird' looking speakers....

after getting to see them at times, they 'grew' on me and find them 'very different' from the typical 'box' speakers.

and with the sound coming out of them.... simply beautiful.

i suppose some of us need some time to 'finally appreciate' the looks.....me being one  ;D ;D ;D

Vivid distinctive & unusual appearance are often the main talking point among audiophile community. Some love it and some hate it.

For those that just get to know about Vivid speaker, the following short video by Vivid Engineering Director Laurence Dickie will offer you some insight to this engineering driven company & its design.

hahaa…. the looks of them may not be everybody's 'cup of tea'.

but the sound from them might just change many minds..... ;D ;D ;D

Some minds only. I am still fix on having both looks and sound. I do know ppl with 100% on sound, looks do not matter. Likewise vice versa. That's why everyone is different hence hifi can survive made for different and all groups.

I loved the looks of the Giya range but found the Kaya range rather distasteful. Guess this is subjective and one man's meat may be another man's poison. Have not heard the Kaya yet but I absolutely love my Giya. I have paired them with dual rythmik sub to very good effect... subtle and it adds to the soundstaging very positively.

Kaya goes well with bread & butter and here it looks well with the Giya too.:D

Impressive eye candy to the eyes of the beholder but will not appeal to all!  ;)

Hope it sounds awesome and not cost prohibitive like its big brother, Giya.:)

Post by: C130 on November 24, 2018, 17:39
to what i know, the retail price of the 'slim' ones shown in the lower pix is at $12k while the other pair is at $24k... cost way lower than the Giya range.  :)

no sure whether X Audio gives 'post Black Friday' big discount....  ;D

I switched from a ML Summit to the Giya G3. Very fun and versatile speakers and think I would stay with it for a very long time.

No but they have a G4 (series 1) nearby to AB. I suspect the G4 (esp series2) might have higher resolution but costs even more than  the Kaya 90.

The G4s did not impressed me as much and came across more monitor speaker like. I would love the G2 but it would have been overwhelming  for my room so settled for the G3. It was just right and I did complement it with a pair of rythmik subs.
