Looks very very promising!
But will be quite a bit more expensive also.

Most likely one of the world's greatest speakers..but once again priced at what most people feel as unobtanium. OTOH, compared to some of the other maker's flagships...like the new Wamm, probably more in line with the expected market.
I guess we have to count our blessings that the standard price for high-end speakers that can perform like high end speakers hasn't reached into the millions of $$ yet! Ssshh, I think we may need to keep this thought to ourselves, LOL...

These are low volume units, price will always be high. What I find most interesting is they have an external crossover. Vivid does make a beautiful speaker.

If I ever upgrade my speakers, these are candidates No. 1!

The beautiful thing is: you will hear the same qualities trickling down to the G4 Giya, which is already a very serious competitor now, in its price range (22K here).

Still below $100K, so for example Wilson has at least three lines of speakers priced above the G1.

Price a pair of Sonus Faber Aida sometime as well.

A high price for high performance, as Vivids always have been, but well worth it.
