Kompromisslösa högtalare för sanningssökare.
YG Acoustics bygger världens bästa högtalare om man är överens om att uppgiften för en högtalare är återge musiksignalen så korrekt som möjligt. En av de största utmaningarna för en högtalare är att återge frekvens-tid-fas förloppet i inspelad musik. Att få flygeln att låta som en flygel gör i verkligheten är ingen enkel uppgift. Svårigheten ligger i huvudsak i delningsfiltret. Mjukvaran som används av majoriteten av alla högtalartillverkare tvingar konstruktören att optimera mellan korrekt frekvensgång eller rätt tid/fas-förlopp. YG Acoustics har utvecklat en helt egen mjukvara – DualCoherent™ för att konstruera delningsfilter.
Titta gärna på de mätningar som elektronikföretaget Devialet gjort på ett flertal olika högtalare på marknaden. De mäter just frekvens-tid förloppet på en riktig musiksignal. Det är ingen slump att YG Acoustics Sonja 2.2 är den högtalare som mäter bäst.
Men vad gör det för dig som musikälskare. Man vill ju lyssna på musik, inte mäta sina högtalare. Jo, det är rätt viktigt. Du har säkert någon gång hört en audiofil prata om vilka inspelningar som låter bäst på deras hifi-system, och vilka inspelningar som låter riktigt dåligt. Det beror ofta på att frekvensgången är fel. Ofta kan felen vara runt 12 dB eller mer i en viss frekvens. Då är det inte konstigt om en viss inspelning med ett visst sound kan låta helt fel. Det är klart att det finns musikproduktioner som inte bryr sig om ljudkvalitet speciellt mycket, men oftast hade artisten och producenten en idé med sitt verk. Om den idén var att skapa ett varmt, basrikt sound, och din högtalare har en kraftig baspuckel är det sannolikt att det albumet kommer att låta rätt dåligt.
Med ett par YG-högtalare hemma kan vi lova att du kommer att njuta av hela din musiksamling på ett nytt sätt, även de album du tidigare trott var bortom njutning. När det gäller musik är sanningen extra viktig.

Reviewer Kirk Midtskog summarizes:
“The Sonja 1.2 is revealing without sounding exaggerated. It is dynamically alive without sounding forced. It is tonally neutral without sounding clinical. It can make music playback evoke deep emotional connections and spark your imagination. I certainly have had some wonderful musical experiences with the Sonja in my system. The Sonja 1.2 delivers such high sonic performance, and does so on so many levels, that it leads me with the obvious conclusion of my highest recommendation. Stunning.”

Inside is a fantastic article by Chris Martens, which can also be found on the magazine’s website.
The reviewer concludes: “…Carmel 2 demonstrates truly astonishing power handling capabilities and vibrant, full-bodied dynamics. It also belies its modest size by serving up surprisingly deep, powerful, and extended bass.” “This also holds true when playing pipe organ material rich in low-frequency content, which the Carmel 2 happily reproduces with powerful and shuddering depth tempered by an excellent measure of control.” “This compact and exquisitely made floorstander…offers transparency, detail, neutrality of voicing, and overall refinement… The Carmel 2 is without a doubt an unqualified design triumph.”

“I found myself completely unable to play short excerpts, the sound so captivating I simply had to play it through to the end. One moment passionate, the next haunting and then almost frightening, this is an amazing test of a system’s ability to reproduce instrumental color and the most intricate detail.” “Serious weight, presence, impact, clarity. Even in the deep bass and all the way up to the top registers” “…lower frequency articulation, the midrange clarity, the openness of the upper frequencies and the overall level of realism …I just have to keep this pair.”

“The precision of the soundstage is exemplary.”
“A top-quality, exceptional speaker. It has a price to match, but offers impressive quality accordingly, both material-wise and sonically.”

Further comments, all translated from German:“In machining-time alone, a single pair of Hailey requires 61 hours… Assembly requires even longer, as a pair
consists of 1640 parts… Never before have I so strongly had the feeling, that relative to the impressive
build-quality, complex worksmanship and resulting sound, expensive high-end is actually fair-priced.”
“Never before have I been so impressed, that a speaker doesn’t lend the music any of its own character, but rather
actually steps back behind the recordings and is completely at their service”.

On the Measurements sidebar, Chief Editor John Atkinson concludes:
“The YGA Sonja 1.3 offered the excellent measured performance you should expect at its price”.
YG Acoustics Hailey 2.2 Golden Ear Award 2020
“The Hailey 2.2 gets so much right and offers so much trickled-down technology that one could make a compelling argument it represents the performance/price sweet spot in the YG line. It actually comes pretty darn close in overall performance to the nextmodel- up Sonja 2.2 in bass extension, dynamic range, and soundstaging.”
Kirk Midtskog, The Absolute Sound
YG Acoustics Sonja 2.2 Editors' Choice Award 2020
“What has been added sonically to the 1.2’s already superb performance is even greater resolution, ease, and general felicity. The Sonja 2.2 is a speaker that serves the music, no matter what kind. A major achievement.
Kirk Midtskog, The Absolute Sound
Sonja 2.2 i hifi+
”The Sonja 2.2 is a remarkable loudspeaker that delivers much of the sonic excellence of YG Acoustic’s flagship Sonja XV, but that is more accessible in both a financial and physical sense. The speaker is so revealing that it requires topclass ancillary components to give of its best, but it will reward its fortunate owners with extraordinary musical experiences for many years to come.”
Chris Martens, hifi+
YG Acoustics Hailey 2.2 Editors' Choice Award 2020
“Sonically, the Hailey 1.2 can be summed up in two words: precision and performance. In these regards, the Hailey 1.2 is at least the rival of the best electrostatics and ribbons, says AHC, producing excellent detail and microdynamics at every frequency. Being a sealed design, the Hailey 1.2 is less sensitive to room interaction in the bass than most ported speakers.”
The Absolute Sound
Grand slam för Hailey 2.2
Cost-No-Object loudspeaker of the year och Editors choice i hifi+.
“The Hailey 2.2 shares more than a few sonic characteristics with the state-of-theart Sonja XV. It is a terrifically revealing and musically expressive loudspeaker that is scaled perfectly—UK and European readers please take note—to deliver extraordinary results in moderately sized listening spaces. To hear them is to want them.”
Chris Martens, hifi+
YG Acoustics Sonja 2.3 Editors' Choice Award 2020
A larger version of the Sonja 2.2, the 2.3 adds a passive bass module on which the rest of the speaker is mounted. Sonically, the Sonja 2.3 delivers world-class performance, with a spectacular sense of presence, transparency to sources, and palpability. Its bass is extended, powerful, and articulate. Its overall coherence, as well as its ability to portray a wide range of image sizes, is exceptional. It is as adept at reproducing an orchestra as it is a solo acoustic guitar.
The Absolute Sound
YG Acoustics Hailey 2.2
“Hailey 2.2 is my new reference speaker.”
“In my opinion, every high end manufacturer should buy a pair to see if they can exceed its reference-level musicality or match it for less money. It’s that good.”
