What Customers Say About the Music Seminars
with the Giya G3s

"... Philip ... provide the best music demonstration I have ever had in my life... I would be remiss in not mentioning that Philip has the best needle drops (selection and quality) that I have ever heard in my life... never heard pianos and violins sound so life like... complex passages so uncongested... dynamics from soft to explosively loud were incredible"
B. Plexico, N. CA, June 2015
“I want to thank you Philip for the very interesting seminar ...very fun and instructive... Your passion for music is obvious ... the Luxman/Vivid combo is a match made in heaven!! You know how to keep an audience attention.. your choice of music was spot on!!"
Guy La Rue, Montreal, CAN, January 2014
“I thought (the Vivid GIYA G3) were sensational... As a scientist, engineer, and loudspeaker design enthusiast, I marveled at their design... What I liked most about the afternoon was the emphasis on the music and not the equipment... hearing the differences between various digital formats and analog (was) a tremendous experience... an afternoon of musical bliss."
Jon Whitledge, San Diego, April 2015

Vivid Audio illustration of reaction canceling technology in their loudspeakers
Vivid uses pairs of opposing bass drivers to completely eliminate the reaction forces which excite coloration from ordinary loudspeakers.

Catenary Dome Profile: The shape of the metal dome tweeter in Vivid loudspeakers is over 50% better at keeping all resonances out of band than traditional spherical metal dome tweeters.
Vivid Audio illustration of Acoustically Designed Cabinets
Vivid's round enclosures and lack of protruding securing screws eliminate the large audible aberrations in response that normal loudspeakers generally experience.
Vivid Audio - Highly ventilated former
Vivid's highly ventilated former allows the air within the coil and dust dome to escape without cavity resonances or turbulence noise.
