Given the price points it looks like the Kiya will replace the Oval line, not the Giyas.

I read it will be a line between the Oval Line and Giya Line.
Different models.

Heard these yesterday at Munich and they sounded very good. I think one will either like or dislike the looks.

Happy to note that at RMAF Ayre was proudly demoing their new 8 series products with the Kiyas!

I didn't take photos but as the magazines start to post them, keep an eye out for the Ayre room.

Ayre has had an affinity for Vivids for about a decade now, having demoed their gear in the past with both oval series B-1s as well as some unproduced Vivid prototypes!
