HiFi+ has published a phenomenal review of the "super-speaker" Sonja XV.
Special thanks to GTT Audio for making their showroom, and a wide array of top-notch ancillary equipment, available for the extensive audition.
Veteran reviewer Chris Martens' conclusion: "YG Acoustics Sonja XV stands as the finest and by far the most accomplished loudspeaker I have yet heard, and by no small margin at that." here.
France's VUMetre magazine subjected Hailey 1.2 to both an exhaustive listening test, and a precise measurement-lab inspection.
Their conclusions, translated to English:
"indisputable measurements...linearity, phase-coherence, low distortion"
"totally natural reproduction, highly powerful resolution, tonal correctness, highly precise soundstage" here.
Senior reviewer Greg Weaver of TAS magazine auditioned Sonja XV, and concluded:
"This pioneering and benchmark-setting creation from YG is quite simply the most articulate, accurate, and musically engaging loudspeaker system I have heard. Period. I’ve heard speakers that sell for nearly four times as much that can’t begin to touch the Sonja XV in dynamic scaling, articulation, effortlessness, bass weight, transient speed, transparency, and individuality of pitch definition. The Sonja XV’s ability, especially as a 10-driver-per-channel, four-tower system, to communicate with a singular, cohesive, unified voice is unsurpassed in my experience. And its BilletDome tweeter is the most articulate, revealing, musically compelling treble transducer I’ve yet heard, easily surpassing the performance of any of the treated beryllium domes that have, until now, held my favor."

We are delighted to announce Wojciech Pacuła has reviewed the Carmel 2 in the September 2016 edition of High Fidelity.
The smallest model in YG Acoustics range offer a perfect make & finish, is based on a solid engineering and made in a truly hi-tech production process. Equally important, however, is that they communicate with us “above” the technological level, beautifully conveying emotions stored in the recordings.Wojciech Pacuła High Fidelity

We are proud to announce that Wojciech Pacuła has reviewed the Hailey 2.1 in the September 2016 edition of High Fidelity magazine.
I very rarely say this, as I rarely deal with such a situation: the tested loudspeakers were a big step forward in the development of my system.
This is one of a few best loudspeakers that I have ever heard.Wojciech Pacuła High Fidelity

Carmel 2 was featured the front cover of the October 2015 issue of Hi-Fi+.
Inside is a fantastic article by Chris Martens, which can also be found on the magazine's website.
The reviewer concludes: "…Carmel 2 demonstrates truly astonishing power handling capabilities and vibrant, full-bodied dynamics. It also belies its modest size by serving up surprisingly deep, powerful, and extended bass.” “This also holds true when playing pipe organ material rich in low-frequency content, which the Carmel 2 happily reproduces with powerful and shuddering depth tempered by an excellent measure of control.” "This compact and exquisitely made floorstander…offers transparency, detail, neutrality of voicing, and overall refinement… The Carmel 2 is without a doubt an unqualified design triumph."
The April 2015 issue of The Absolute Sound features YG Acoustics' Hailey 1.2 as its cover story.
The magazine also includes a report from CES 2015, with two "Best of Show" recognitions for YG Acoustics. The full review can be found here.
