Carmel™ 2 delivers the lifelike natural sound of YG Acoustics™’ flagship Sonja™ and Hailey™, at a price that is within reach for many of us who – until now – could only dream of owning a speaker of such ultra-high-end caliber. Carmel™ 2 is the culmination of years of research, and a near-obsessive desire by YG Acoustics™’ lead-designer Yoav Geva, who insisted that his inevitable responsibility was to extend the leading-edge technologies of Sonja™ and Hailey™, to Carmel™ 2. The result is astonishing – world-class performance in a gorgeous marvel of industrial design and precision-manufacturing. Carmel™ 2 – spectacular sonics, timelessly elegant form, pure clarity.

At YG Acoustics™, we pride ourselves in protecting our discerning customers’ investments for many years to come. We do so by ensuring that one almost never needs to replace any of the YG Acoustics™ offerings listed below. Instead, existing products can mostly be upgraded to the latest technology, and/or expansion modules can be added.
In most cases, upgrades and expansions can be done in the field (i.e. in the customer’s home) without the need to ship the speakers anywhere, in a matter of hours.
Carmel™ 2, in addition to its state-of-the-art two-channel (stereo) performance, is also fully compatible with multichannel audio and home-theater systems. Carmel™ 2 can also be combined with speakers from YG Acoustics™’ other lines for properly phase-coherent multi-channel systems.
