We are proud to announce the Hailey 2.2 has been included in The Absolute Sound High-End Audio Buyer's Guide 2022.
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 next-model-up Sonja 2.2 in bass extension, dynamic range, and soundstaging. The Hailey is also the lowest-priced model to include YG’s patented hybrid tweeter with a soft-dome membrane supported by a lightweight, acoustically transparent aluminum “air frame.” The Hailey 2.2 is a musically expressive, revealing speaker capable of deep-reaching, tuneful bass and agile, wide-ranging dynamics. It creates focused images within an expansive soundstage into which the speakers sonically disappear as sound sources. The more expensive Sonja 2.2 performs better in top-to-bottom coherency, but the Hailey really delivers the sonic goods in its own right—especially in its price category.The Absolute Sound High-End Audio Buyer's Guide 2022
