Vantage Live

The Accuracy and Musicality of YG. Made Simple.
  • Description
  • Specifications

The Vantage Live is a complete system delivering world-class audio quality hand-in-hand with ultimate convenience.

The sound from the Vantage Live exceeds any expectation from an integrated system and rivals the very best achievable with multi-component, traditional hi-fi systems.

Two compact, three way loudspeakers combine with an elegant controller in a form factor which can blend harmoniously with any size of room and all design aesthetics. Together, they deliver concert-scale sound with phenomenal detail and engagement.

The Vantage Live is tuned to deliver superb accuracy and musical involvement in any setting — across a huge range of room sizes and placement options, from the lowest listening levels to concert volumes.

Beautiful imaging and realism are maintained over a wide sweet spot, providing enjoyment for everyone in the room.

Vantage Live is the culmination of many years of research and development between YG, Cambridge Acoustic Sciences, and Bel Canto.

The advanced DSP crossover was tuned on the basis of complex, multi-domain physics and acoustic models optimized using supercomputer and cloud computing resources. It performs at an unprecedented standard: not just in raw measurements, but in critical listening evaluation.

Bespoke amplification provides a 700W amplifier for each of three drive units in each cabinet, yet is cool and efficient. The result is a velvet black background with a beautiful, smooth delivery with all types of music. Incredible dynamics combined with deep, authoritative bass.

Usable output extends from 25 Hz to above 30 kHz
±2° relative phase throughout entire overlap
Exceptional pair-matching
