We are honored that the Carmel 2 won the The Absolute Sound 2022 Editors Choice Award for Loudspeakers $20,000 to $50,000.
The result is a slender package with a surprisingly big, lively sound and an ability to delve deeper than you’d expect. The highs are more extended (an airy 40kHz) than a typical soft-dome tweeter, with the benefit of no metallic glare. Imaging, tonality, detail, and dynamics are all at a bespoke level. Musically, the speaker is an unending delight. The YG also fits perfectly into today’s smaller, shared-purpose listening spaces. The speaker is stylish enough to complement any décor, is perfectly happy tucked out of the way near the wall behind it, doesn’t require humongous amps, and sounds great even at low volume.Absolute Sounds Editors Choice Award 2022
