Established in the year 2002 by Mr. Yoav Geva (Gonczarowski), the YG Acoustics brand is sold in over 25 countries worldwide. All of our speakers are handmade in house at our factory in Denver (Arvada), Colorado.
Since 2004, YG Acoustics has become one of the strongest brands all over the world. YG Acoustics is always expanding it\'s marketing reach on a global basis. The strength of YG Acoustics in Asia and Europe has led to distribution in many other parts of the world as well. In the U.S. there is a strong marketing campaign in major audiophile print publications as well as many web based publications.
YG Acoustics loudspeakers are designed and optimized using proprietary software developed entirely in-house. While it seems obvious to non-industry members that any serious high-tech company should create its own custom tools for critical tasks, in fact nearly all other loudspeaker brands worldwide rely on a single off-the-shelf design suite, in which the core is predominantly over 10 years old. The result, as discerning audiophiles have already noticed, is that all of those loudspeakers suffer from the same problems, and those deficiencies prevent them from sounding even remotely like ï¿½the real thingï¿½. YG Acoustics software is highly advanced and uses technology developed by Mr. Geva from scratch, i.e. it cannot be found in scientific publications. This, combined with cost-no-object construction using aircraft-grade aluminum with no wood-based materials whatsoever, ensures performance unparalleled by the competition. When driven by adequate electronics and correctly set-up, YG Acoustics loudspeakers are completely capable of fooling the human ear into believing that it is listening to live music. YG Acoustics\' major technologies are: DualCoherentï¿½ crossovers, FocusedEliminationï¿½ damping technology, and many more on the horizon.

Yes. Is there reason to? Yes.\"

Instead, I heard...transient-rich instruments rendered with a completely natural and organic quality...\" \"...its resolution was musically authentic, not an artifact, which allowed very long listening sessions.\" \"...the Kipod Studio was utterly magical.\"
