Chris Martens concluded his review by saying, “They offer much of the sonic excellence of YG’s terrific Hailey 2.2 loudspeakers, but at just 70% of the Hailey 2.2 price. What is more, in the right small-to-medium-sized rooms and played at sensible volume levels, sonic differences between the Hailey 2.2 and the Vantage become very difficult to discern. Vive laVantage”.
“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 sound staging.”
"The Sonja 2.2 is a speaker that serves the music, no matter what kind. A major achievement."
"Sonically, the Sonja 2.3 delivers world-class performance, with a spectacular sense of presence, transparency to sources, and palpability. Its bass is extended, powerful, and articulate. Its overall coherence, as well as its ability to portray a wide range of image sizes, is exceptional."
We are happy to announce that we have been awarded the prestigious Golden Ear Award 2020 from The Absolute Sound
“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. “
We are proud to announce that Vantage have been awarded the prestigious Stereo Sound Grand Prix 2020.
“The Hailey 2.2 shares more than a few sonic characteristics with the state-of-the-art Sonja XV. It is a terrifically revealing and musically expressive loudspeaker that is scaled perfectly—UK and European readers please take note—to deliver extraordinary results in moderately sized listening spaces. To hear them is to want them.”

Hailey 2.2 is my new reference speaker.Review By Phil Gold – Enjoy the music.com
In my opinion, every high end manufacturer should buy a pair to see if they can exceed its reference-level musicality or match it for less money. It's that good.

They offer much of the sonic excellence of YG’s terrific Hailey 2.2 loudspeakers, but at just 70% of the Hailey 2.2’s price. What is more, in the right small-to-medium-sized rooms and played at sensible volume levels, sonic differences between the Hailey 2.2 and the Vantage become very difficult to discern.
