Default Vivid Audio G2 Giya: Soundstage Reviewers' Choice

Doug Schneider was quite enthusiastic.
He made a mistake regarding to the woofers though.
The G1: 11 inches
The G2: 9 inches
The G3: 7.5 inches

Bart, your link opened a page about CEDIA, for me, so I'm inserting it, again. Odd because the code appears identical.

Vivid Audio Giya G2 Loudspeakers

I do love these...so happy to "know" an owner of them.

Strange indeed. I had the same thing reopening the page. I've put your link in my first post. Thanks!
The center and the rears are also traveling my way...

Indeed Robert.
We are very happy!
At first sight, my better half found them really ugly.
Fortunately I could convince her to have a listening session.
She knows quite a bit about how good high end speakers can sound, she usually joins me when I go to dealers and shows.
After hearing the G1's and G2's, she said: "Now that we've heard these, we cannot NOT buy Vivid Audio!"...
And now, after 3 months, she actually quite likes them.
Our guests have mixed opinions, but most find them blending in well with the interior.
Price range of the G2's is the same as the Sasha's here in Europe by the way.

HI Robert,
we are indeed hilariously happy... may be I am even happier than my significant other: upgrading our living-room with Vivids means that our "old" sound system B&W XT series is gradually moving into my office ...
