Wilson Audio Sasha DAW

By | November 27th, 2018|Categories: AV Hub|

Wilson Audio has released the Wilson Audio Sasha DAW, which supersedes the Sasha Series 2 and is named to honour the late David Andrew Wilson, who founded Wilson Audio in the 70s.

As with almost all Wilson Audio loudspeakers, the Wilson Audio Sasha DAW uses a modular design with separate upper (midrange/treble) and lower (bass) enclosures to enable precise time domain regulation of the drivers for optimum accuracy and coherence. The upper enclosure features the same 180mm midrange driver and 25mm tweeter used in Wilson Audio’s range-topping WAMM Master Chronosonic, while the lower enclosure has two newly re-designed 200m bass drivers that are based on the ones used in the Alexia Series-2.… Read the full article

Brian Berdan, owner of Audio Element in Pasadena California grew up in a household filled with music, his late father was a well known hi-fi  dealer, so I can suspect that he had some killer vintage gear to play around with.  Brian’s first pair of Wilson Audio Speakers were a pair of Wilson Watt 2/Puppy 1 loudspeakers that began his Wilson journey and which he still owns today.  As Brian and his wife Jennifer geared up to celebrate Audio Element’s 5th anniversary this month, it couldn’t have been better timing with a debut of the Wilson Audio Sasha DAW speakers.… Read the full article

Wilson Audio Introduces the New Sasha DAW

The following is a press release issued by Wilson Audio. November 5, 2018 – The original WATT began not as a response to a perceived market need. It was not the product of focus groups. Dave Wilson never intended it to be a commercial product at all. Dave designed the WATT in 1985 as a tool for himself. He was a recording engineer who needed a loudspeaker he could take with him to on-location recording venues, a location monitor that spoke the same language as his revolutionary and revered WAMM reference monitor, a precision tool that aided him in his …… Read the full article

It was a once in a lifetime experience about 1.5 years ago when I got to sit alongside David Wilson in his inspiring listening room and hear the WAMM Master Chronosonic. I will never forget those precious minutes with David, nothing has gotten closer to being there. In a world where many high-end companies fade away when they lose their founder, one American company is breaking the mold and demonstrating that a new generation can deliver breath-taking products, namely Daryl Wilson who has taken the reigns at Wilson Audio (website).… Read the full article

Wilson Audio Specialties TuneTot

Real-world audiophiles understand that the pursuit of good sound, like most things in life, involves compromise. Those loudspeakers that you absolutely must have necessarily inform your choice of electronics; the dimensions of the room they’ll live in drive other decisions. Issues of cost, reliability, appearance—these metrics, and others, are in play as an audiophile moves toward his or her idea of sonic nirvana. As much as any product I’ve come across, the Wilson Audio Specialties TuneTot “ecosystem” (as the manufacturer rather grandly refers to the speakers plus the several à la carte options that can be purchased to accompany them) …… Read the full article

David Wilson designed his first small speaker, the Wilson Audio Tiny Tot (better known as the ‘WATT’) back in the mid-eighties, not for sale, but so he could easily take a pair of high-quality monitors with him for monitoring the on-location recordings he was making for his other company, Wilson Audiophile Recordings. When dealers, audiophiles, and music lovers expressed an interest in purchasing them, he started production, later developing a dedicated woofer module to partner them, which he called the Puppy.… Read the full article

Wilson Audio Specialties Alexia Series 2 loudspeaker

By | June 14th, 2018|Categories: Stereophile|

One of the benefits of being a reviewer is that, of the large number of products that pass through my listening room, occasionally there are those that I really would like to see take up more permanent residence. One of these was Wilson Audio Specialties’ Alexia loudspeaker, which I reviewed in December 2013. “Its clarity, its uncolored, full-range balance, its flexibility in setup and optimization, and most of all its sheer musicality, are, if not unrivaled, rare,” I wrote, and concluded: “If I were to retire tomorrow, the Wilson Alexia would be the speaker I would buy to provide the musical accompaniment to that retirement.” Nothing I subsequently heard disabused me of that dream, though a couple of other speakers, in particular Vivid Audio’s Giya G3 and KEF’s Blade Two, joined the Alexia on my bucket list.… Read the full article

David A. Wilson II, co-founder of Wilson Audio, arguably the world’s most famous loudspeaker manufacturer, died on Saturday May 26th, 2018, aged 73, after a long battle with a rare metastatic bone cancer.

Dave co-founded Wilson Audio Specialties, in 1974, with his wife Sheryl Lee in Novato, Marin County, California. They also co-founded Wilson Audiophile Definitive Recordings. Following the success of these ventures Dave and Sheryl Lee relocated to Provo, Utah, where they continued to build loudspeakers and make hi-fi recordings, and also raised four children, one of whom (Daryl), was appointed President and CEO of Wilson Audio in November 2017.… Read the full article
