The following is a press release issued by Wilson Audio. October 14, 2019 – Wilson Audio’s approach to subwoofers, whether to augment a music system or a high-end home theater system, has always been unconventional. Even in the most expensive competing designs, there seems to be a willingness to compromise performance in favor of convenience or lifestyle considerations. In an effort to appeal to a broader audience, they design subwoof- ers in small enclosures. Perhaps they cater to a particular lifestyle, but the designs also ignore simple physics.… Read the full article
Wilson Audio’s newest loudspeaker, the Chronosonic XVX, although designed by Daryl Wilson, contains much of the technology found in the WAMM Master Chronosonic designed by his father, the late David Wilson, who founded the company in 1974.
‘Some of the technology developed for the WAMM now resides in the Chronosonic XVX in a simpler form, said John Giolas of Wilson Audio. ‘More than in any other previous loudspeaker, we have introduced more technology, features, and manufacturing processes in the Chronosonic XVX so that—short of the WAMM itself—no other loudspeaker reproduces music as realistically or communicates the emotional power of the artists so eloquently.… Read the full article
High-end audio companies face a particular challenge when their founder retires or passes away.

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

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
