Vivid Audio Kaya 90 Floorstanding Loudspeaker
The top-of-the-range KAYA model, the KAYA 90 delivers an effortless, powerful and focused sound that connects you directly and intimately with the music. This three-way floor-standing loudspeakers combine some of Vivid Audio's best audio technology with a slim, unobtrusive profile, making them easy to live with, as well as a joy to listen to.
A Rich Pedigree
Like all the KAYA series, the KAYA 90 shares its DNA with the Vivid Audio GIYA loudspeakers. That family connection is immediately evident visually in the KAYA 90's smooth curved contours. But it's your ears that will truly confirm their common ancestry. The KAYA 90 is so called because it has an internal volume of 90 litres. That, combined with its four patented reaction-canceling drivers and Tapered Tube loading - the same technology Vivid Audio pioneered with the GIYA - giving the KAYA 90 its astonishing clarity and articulation in the bass.
The curved bass absorber horn is the defining external feature of the GIYA loudspeakers. As with everything that Vivid Audio does, it's there for unarguable engineering reasons: it absorbs resonances and coloration, so you can hear every note with perfect precision and clarity. With the KAYA 90, the iconic horn is still there; for the same reasons, and giving you the same benefits. The difference is that it's folded back on itself, so it curves round inside the enclosure. So KAYA 90 gives you the same resonance-free sound in the lower mid-range, from a slimmer, more understated profile you may find easier to live with.
A Deeper Understanding
With many conventional three-way loudspeakers, it is possible to tune into the bass, imd-range and tweeter as separate parts of the sound field. That's something that Vivid Audio has worked strenuously to avoid with KAYA 90. Using all-aluminum drive units, and crossovers developed and built entirely in-house, Vivid Audio made the transition between drivers totally seamless. They have also set the tweeter in a shallow waveguide, so that the sound is projected forwards rather than dispersing sideways. The result is perfect continuity in the sound and a more focused listening experience unaffected by your room acoustics.
