Vantage 3 Live is a unique product: a complete system delivering stunning audio quality combined with exceptional convenience and flexibility.
Vantage 3 Live will have you re-listening to all your favorite recordings, enjoying its unrivaled dynamics and scale, breathtaking detail and delicacy. Most
of all, it has a musical, natural sound with all types of music, whether recreating an intimate acoustic recording or the spine-tingling, electric atmosphere of a rock concert.
Sophisticated and natural with life-size scale, Vantage Live exceeds any expectation from an integrated system and rivals the very best achievable with multi-component, traditional hi-fi systems. Vantage Live is the culmination of many years of research and development between YG and Bel Canto.
Two compact, three way loudspeakers combine with an elegant controller to blend harmoniously with any size of room and all design aesthetics.
Advanced DSP crossovers have been tuned on the basis of complex, multi-domain physics and acoustic models, optimized using supercomputer and cloud computing resources.
Top tier DSP and DAC circuits provide effortless dynamics, clarity and musicality. Custom amplification provides a dedicated 700W amplifier for each of the three drive units, yet the whole system is cool and efficient. The result is a velvet black background with a beautiful, smooth delivery across all types of music. Incredible dynamics, astounding realism and deep, authoritative bass.
The Reference 3 models include new technologies and design innovations based on novel theoretical models, detailed multi-domain simulations and thousands of hours of listening. An new, hybrid Lattice tweeter uses a novel airframe in a specially- selected aerospace alloy, machined by YG Acoustics. It delivers exceptionally low distortion over a huge bandwidth, with a wide imaging sweet-spot.
