    Re: Interview with Laurence Dickie

    I voiced a pair of Vivid G1 Spirits to a RoomPlay client's room about two years ago.

    I'll probably never forget it.

    The most musically involving loudspeaker with which I have ever worked, along with the Avantgarde TRIOs. Although they are quite different in most respects, they both unlocked the music powerfully.

    And no, I have never directly worked with the MBLs. Not yet, anyway...

    I couldn't agree more. I went on an extensive search for my last purchase (Giya G2 S2s) that included Magicos, Vandersteens, Evolution Acoustics, Wilsons, YGs and quite a few others but once I heard the Giya G1s I knew they were for me. They provide such a stress - free, coherent and natural music that I've rarely heard since. I'm sure the ultra - low distortion is a part of it.
