YG Acoustics is demonstrating a new limited edition version of its flagship XV 3 loudspeakers called the XV 3 Signature at HIGH END Munich this week. Priced at $498,000 a pair, the company says XV 3 Signature loudspeakers offer a new pinnacle of sound reproduction technology for an unparalleled musical experience.

According to the company, the four tower XV 3 ($398,000/pair) already offers an extraordinary level of performance, enveloping listeners in a breathtaking audio landscape. It is capable of huge scale and authority, yet renders the finest micro-details with astonishing clarity and precision. Most importantly, it delivers that critical sense of musical involvement that is expressed in goosebumps and an addictive desire to continue listening for hour after hour.

XV 3 Signature is a limited edition of just eight pairs pushing that performance yet further, demonstrating an exercise in obsessive perfection. Painstakingly built and tuned at YG’s R&D facility, XV 3 Signature is so extreme that it was never intended to enter production, and its origins help explain its truly exceptional nature.

For these eight pairs, we learned YG Acoustics fine tunes every component over a period of weeks and months to attain at least two decimal points of extra precision in every component, (including the slight variations when tested in situ as all crossover components are interactive — not just the inductors) as well as extreme matching of all drivers. Each pair is unique to that pair of speakers. The pair on display HIGH END Munich are the original and not one of the numbered pairs.

“Our goal at YG has always been to push the boundaries of audio technology,” says Dr. Matthew Webster, YG’s CEO and chief designer. “The major research project that led to the XV 3 Signature brought together component innovations with a revolutionary approach to building and tuning loudspeakers. The final performance exceeded our wildest expectations.”

Key Advancements

Central to the XV 3 Signature’s unparalleled performance are two revolutionary advancements. 

The first is a breakthrough in capacitor design with a special copper alloy foil and advanced dielectric, offering a level of performance previously thought unattainable. 

The second is a meticulous pursuit of perfection at the smallest scale: each pair undergoes a detailed tuning process over many weeks at our R&D facility, personally overseen by Dr. Webster. Driven by iterative measurement, modeling and listening, custom crossover components are built for each pair, carefully tuned and matched to deliver the very highest possible performance. Every change is subtle: often a fraction of one percent of the component value. Yet together, the result is incredible.

The Signatures

The XV 3 Signature is distinguished by a jewelry gold plated trapezoid and personalized dedication panel. Each crossover board and the dedication panel are signed by Dr. Webster and the R&D team responsible for that pair of speakers.

YG says XV 3 Signature is not just a speaker; it is an expression of uncompromising dedication to sonic perfection. With only eight pairs available worldwide, this limited edition masterpiece stands as a testament to YG’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of what is possible in high-end audio.
