A WORLD OF SOUND
With the G4 loudspeaker, you can enjoy the authentic GIYA sound and aesthetic in even the smallest space. We’ve taken the same world-class technology you’ll find in our larger GIYA loudspeakers and meticulously housed it in an enclosure just one metre high. The result is a loudspeaker with real character and presence, that delivers power and performance far beyond its modest dimensions. The true GIYA listening experience: condensed, not compromised.
THE DRIVE FOR PERFECTION
Despite its modest dimensions, the GIYA G4 is a true four-way loudspeaker, with five drivers all designed and made entirely in-house. The C100S low mid-range and twin C125L bass drivers are specially designed to produce the maximum output from their compact cones and chassis. High and mid frequencies are handled by the same D26 and D50 drivers, with our patented Tapered Tube loading, as the rest of the GIYA family. The transparent, accurate and wholly natural sound is everything you’d expect: what might surprise you is the sheer weight and power of that sound.
BASS ON A DIFFERENT SCALE
The bass performance of a loudspeaker is a function of cabinet volume and driver dimensions. Yet even as the smallest member of the GIYA family, the G4 produces bass with astonishing weight and power. If you want a bass you can feel, and that will wake up the neighbours and shake pictures off the wall, the G4 will deliver; no problem. But there’s more to bass than just how loud it is. The G4 produces the same incredibly tight, articulate bass, free from distortion and blurring, as the other GIYA models – and so effortlessly and naturally that you can listen for as long as you like without fatigue.
NO STRAIGHT LINES, HARD EDGES OR ANGLES
With the GIYA G4, having a small space is no barrier to enjoying your favourite music in all its depth, detail and emotional power. The GIYA philosophy is to provide the clearest window on the performance. The G4’s distinctive enclosure, made from a GRP-and-balsa-wood composite sandwich, is designed to eliminate the reflections and resonances that cloud and colour the music. No straight lines, hard edges or angles: just the same smooth curves you find in nature, allowing the sound to travel cleanly and uninterrupted.

INSPIRED BY NATURE,
FORMED BY SOUND
EFFORTLESS, TRANSPARENT SOUND FROM THE WORLD’S MOST
We’re guessing you’ve never seen speakers like them; and you’ve definitely never heard speakers like them. The GIYA range is a direct, deliberate challenge to every aesthetic and acoustic convention. But it’s a rebel with a cause: there’s a cool, precise engineering logic behind every line and detail. And if you can’t take your eyes off them, imagine the effect on your ears. Massive, room-filling yet amazingly laid-back sound, revealing hidden subtleties and nuances in the music you love most. Embrace the extraordinary.
THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE
Our flagship GIYA range is the choice of committed audiophiles and connoisseurs worldwide. The radical shape is defined by proven acoustic principles taken to their logical conclusions, untethered by conventional wisdom and construction techniques. Every element of the design is the products of pioneering innovation, from our patented hand-built drive units to our advanced vacuum infused composite enclosure. Every detail has been considered and refined in our relentless quest to eliminate resonances and reflections – and enhance your listening pleasure.
NATURE KNOWS BEST
The purpose of GIYA loudspeakers is simple: to give you the clearest possible window on the music. No distortion or coloration in the sound, nothing to detract from the performance. Perfect clarity and precision in every note and breath. Even tracks you’ve heard a million times sound fresh, full of new details to discover and enjoy. Achieving it requires some truly remarkable, patented technology. And its true genius lies in the fact that you’ll scarcely notice it at work.
