SoundStage’s Doug Schneider attends G1 Spirit launch—”greater depth and slam in the bass than even the G1 can muster”

Vivid Audio G1 Spirit loudspeaker

Doug Schneider published his thoughts on Vivid’s new loudspeaker—the G1 Spirit after attending the debut in Chicago, praising the new flagship speaker for going above and beyond the award-winning G1.

“…All told, it’s rare for me to find a speaker that gets the sound out into the room as easily and effortlessly as Vivid’s speakers do…The Giya G1 Spirit retains those hallmarks, but most definitely presents even greater depth and slam in the bass than even the G1 can muster—no doubt, entirely due to the new woofers. In terms of transparency, openness, and high-frequency sweetness, the G1S also seems to at least be the equal of the B1 Decade…it’s safe to say that the G1 Spirit at least provides the best attributes of the company’s existing speakers, plus adds deeper and more powerful bass than all.”

    Fascinating write-up. I currently have a pair of G1’s on demo and hope to hear the Spirits very shortly.

    How do these speakers partner with Luxman amplification? Being UK-based, this is a hard combination to demo.

      Evening Adam,
      We drove the G1 with the Luxman B1000f for many years and were delighted with the synergy. The Lux amps are capable of sledgehammer like bass and yet these low powered Class A amps are sweet & musical when driven at normal listening conditions. The 800 series amps are considerably darker than the 1000 or 900. Mind you, the 800 as mono blocks are still enjoyable. If the 1000 is too expensive / unavailable then the compromise would be the 900 series. Happy listening, Philip
