The Vivid Kaya S12 is a mini monitor with an attractive trendy design.
Initially it seems as harmless as the average attractive computer loudspeaker … Maybe you don't take the S12 quite seriously then.
But, that may be the biggest mistake in your audiophile existence (….)
There are hundreds of loudspeaker brands in hi-fi with just as many models per brand.
But the real innovation is carried by a limited number of brands and individuals.
Laurence Dickie deserves the honor of being part ofthe world's most innovative loud speaker engineers (….)
Vivid is synonymous with innovation. Not a manufacturer that simply builds loudspeakers inmass, according to concepts that have existed for 50 years.
No, who listens to a Vivid, experiences something new. The next step towards realistic sound.
The difference between listening to your hi-fi equipment or listening to the music (….)
Although the S12 looks fancy, modern and attractive, the housing is not just designed to put a trendy design on the market.
It really is 'form follows function' here. The S12 was born after three years of development and is intended as a monitor next to the floorstanders in the Kaya line(….)
This Vivid is an almost perfect illusion, with a fabulous speed, detail, reality and neutrality(….)
The term 'shockingly good' certainly fits here.
Rarely has a small monitor been listened to here with such crushing dynamics, superior focusing, neutrality, drive and stage.
The speed of these renderers is really state of the art. The stage image is also very good. And the reproduction of the midrange is of a very high class(….)
A true 3D presentation that hardly reminds you of listening to music through two small speakers.
There is just a stage in front of you with musicians. An almost perfect illusion, with a fabulous speed, detail, reality and neutrality(….)
In any case, the S12 is an amazing product.
In the opinion of the undersigned, it belongs to on eof the best monitors in the market.
In fact, the result of innovative thinking, which has really taken the reproduction of music to a higher level.
