Vivid Audio GIYA G1
Vivid Audio, the South African speaker specialist, is relaunching its products in the UK and will unveil a new flagship model at the Munich High-End Show

Vivid Audio, the South African speaker manufacturer, is returning to the UK market with a line-up of eight models.

To mark the occasion, the company will unveil its new flagship speaker, the £32,000 Giya G1, at the High-End Show in Munich next week. It's designed by ex-Bowers & Wilkins acoustic engineer Laurence Dickie.

Full details of the new model will be revealed at Munich, but what we know so far is that the Giya G1 is a four-way, five-driver floorstander with a highly unusual cabinet design, as you can see from the picture.

It's available in graphite, oyster, sahara, artic, pearl or borollo red finishes, or the customer can choose a bespoke colour for an extra £1150.

Ray Rowles of Vivid Audio UK says: "This is an important time in Vivid's history as we are relaunching the brand in the UK."
