John Marks and Vivid Audio at Overture AV
In his July 2010 review, Wes Phillips was charmed by this speaker’s superb imaging, unmatched dynamic range, holographic soundstaging, and overall musicality, deciding that the G1 Giya was the “best” loudspeaker he’d ever heard. A few months later, in our October 2010 issue, John Marks was similarly impressed by Vivid’s less expensive V1.5 ($7650/pair).
JM: “Now that I’ve heard the V1.5, I can readily believe that Vivid’s G1 Giya is the best loudspeaker Wes Phillips has ever heard. In my system, the V1.5 is the best two-way speaker I have heard, as well as the best speaker under $10,000/pair.”
Since then, JM has also had the opportunity to spend quality time with Vivid’s $15,000/pair, 3.5-way B-1 floorstander. His review will appear in our February 2011 issue, but I can tell you now that he was not disappointed.
It makes sense then, that on Saturday, December 4, John Marks will join Overture’s Terry Menacker and Vivid’s US importer Philip O’Hanlon in presenting the $65,000/pair G1 Giya. Now's your chance to hear this speaker and decide if it's as good as people say it is. In any case, it should be an afternoon filled with great music and interesting conversation.
Overture Audio is located at 2423 Concord Pike (Route 202) in Wilmington, Delaware. To RSVP, call (800) 838-1812.
