Launched in 2008 GIYA G1 was the first GIYA produced by Vivid Audio. Its shape is defined by proven acoustic principles taken to their logical conclusions, untethered by conventional wisdom and common construction techniques.

GIYA G1 became GIYA G1 series 2 which was taken out of production early 2021.

Giya series is defined by its remarkable sense of sonic transparency and tonal naturalness. Principal Vivid Audio designer Laurence Dickie pioneered the application of tapered tube absorbers in Nautilus™ as a means to eliminate destructive resonances and reflections from within driver enclosures. With Giya, we apply this design technique to all four of the driver subsystems in the loudspeaker, including the low frequency section. It is exactly this tapered bass enclosure which coils around to such visually striking effect. It is our innovative combination of this tapered absorption tube with a pair of reaction-cancelling critically-tuned vents that is unique.

Our patented technology provides the benefits of near-complete elimination of internal resonances and reflections afforded by the tapered absorber, along with the low distortion, high efficiency, and moderate enclosure size courtesy of the vents.
