Wilson Audio Specialties Alexx Loudspeaker

High-end audio companies face a particular challenge when their founder retires or passes away. More than in other industries, such firms are often built around the singular vision and talent of their founder. The company’s customers buy into that founder’s aesthetic in a deeply personal way that just doesn’t exist with anonymously designed products. Does any company better exemplify this model than Wilson Audio, and its founder, David Wilson? As many of you know, David Wilson passed away last year at the age of 73.… Read the full article

ES000704

DENVER (PTA) — The team at Wilson Audio gave a sneak peek at their new Chronosonic XVX loudspeakers, along with a system showing us the iconic Sasha DAW pair with VTL, Shunyata, Grand Prix, Roon and dCS. The room was so good, that I persuaded Tyler Hall of Wilson Audio to go against his better intuition, and take our entire “Under Forty Party” up to the room for top-secret-late-night-encore. The listening session with the Sasha DAW’s will appear in another article, coming soon.… Read the full article

Wilson Audio Specialties Debuts Flagship XVX Loudspeaker At RMAF 2019

By | September 6th, 2019|Categories: Analog planet|

The first day of RMAF pointed out to those attending both the promise and the pitfalls of the new Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center located a few miles from Denver International Airport. The hotel is a sprawling, enormous resort. To navigate your way around requires downloading an app. Seriously. It’s that big. You have to plan your time carefully because to get from the tower hotel room exhibits to the Convention Center takes at least 10 minutes and once you are there, arriving at the rooms or the seminar space can take another 10.

Announcing Chronosonic XVX Loudspeakers from Wilson Audio

By | September 1st, 2019|Categories: Positive Feedback|Tags: |

October 24, 2018. Shipping November 2018

In late 2012, Dave Wilson began work on a new WAMM. His goal was a reference loudspeaker that would not merely be worthy of its namesake —Dave’s industry-changing WAMM from the early 80s—but would redefine the idea of what was possible in music reproduction. His goal was nothing short of a laboratory-grade loudspeaker that would pass a complex music signal through it with unprecedented accuracy. He knew the new model would challenge and test his company in new, potentially unforeseen ways.… Read the full article

T.H.E. Show 2019: Wilson Audio, Dan D’Agostino, Aqua and Innuos

By | June 17th, 2019|Categories: Audiostream|

This is a hobby where what one hears when it comes to music reproduction is absolutely relative to one’s own tastes not in only in music, but how that music is played back – what it is a particular system is able to pass along from a recording and whether that system is doing it in a manner which is acceptable to us, thrills us or turns us off completely.

AXPONA 2019 Show Coverage brought to you by the LSA Group

About three years ago, I attended a fabulous demo with Peter McGrath in a room with a humble T+A integrated amplifier. The speakers were the $109,000 Wilson Audio Alexx, fairly large towers. Yet the humble integrated did a great job. Peter was there with Bob Stuart and the Alexx clearly demonstrated the improvements on Peter’s classical recordings had undergone a “white glove” MQA treatment. That was a terrific demo … yet I did wonder what more power would do for these impressive Alexx towers.… Read the full article

Wilson Audio Specialties Yvette loudspeaker

By | April 25th, 2019|Categories: Stereophile|

Wilson Audio Specialties considers the Yvette ($25,500/pair) to be the replacement model for the Sophia Series 3. I would argue that the Yvette is an entirely different animal. There are obvious similarities between the Yvette and Sophia. Each is a floorstanding, three-driver, three-way design. Each comprises a single box with a separate internal chamber for each driver. The Sophia’s woofer and midrange chambers are ported; the Yvette’s are respectively ported and vented. The two models are about the same size and, from the back, look a lot alike.… Read the full article
