Vivid Audio GIYA G1 Series Floorstanding Loudspeaker

The one that started it all, Vivid Audio's original product designed by the internationally renowned acoustic engineer Laurence Dickie. The GIYA G1 remains the reference standard for all Vivid Audio loudspeakers, and the entire audiophile world. Recognisable by its unique curved outlines, the form following function with rare and complete devotion.

Inspired by nature. Perfected by Engineers.

Nature dislikes straight lines almost as much as she abhors a vacuum. Nature knows that sound travels much more smoothly over curved surfaces; hence the shape of your own ear.

There is not a single straight line in the G1 loudspeaker's enclosure. Therefore, no reflections, no resonances; just clear, uncoloured, uncluttered sound, where you can hear every note, word, breath and silence precisely as it was laid down.

The music you've known and loved for years takes on new life, depth and clarity; it's like hearing it for the first time, reminding you why you fell in love with it. The G1 has always demanded an opinion; but when you hear it, prepare to find yourself asking not 'why does it look like that?' but 'why doesn't everything else?'.

Taking you deeper into music

As befits the top-of-the-range model, the GIYA G1 brings you all of Vivid Audio's finest handmade acoustic technology. The new D26 tweeter and D50 mid-driver both benefit from the Vivid Audio patented Tapered Tube loading. This effectively eliminates cabinet resonances giving you absolute clarity and transparency through the high and mid frequencies. Underpinning the performance is the massive bass provided by the Vivid Audio paired C225 drivers. Set on reaction-cancelling compliant mounts, they faithfully bring out every note with perfect accuracy, free of the blurring and muddiness that bedevil lesser devices.

Natural through and through

The GIYA G1 enclosure is handmade from a glass-reinforced composite sandwich, with a core layer of end-grain balsa wood. Which allows for the construction of the curved planes and angle-free internal spaces that prevent reflections and resonances. Not the quickest or easiest way to make cabinet, but the only way to achieve the unique GIYA listening experience.

I know it's habitual to shop with the big names like Currys. But you won't find anywhere near this level of service from them, and I'll be sure to keep Holburn in mind for the future. Can't recommend them enough!
