Wilson Audio’s Sasha DAW Speaker: A New WATT/Puppy Descendant

By | March 27th, 2019|Categories: Audioholics|Tags: |

I tend to get most excited about high-value audio products  — ones that I might actually own some day. And the law of diminishing returns is certainly on my side. I know that an $85,000 speaker won’t sound ten times better than GoldenEar Technology’s $8,500 Triton Reference, for example. But I can still appreciate the efforts of companies that strive to achieve the highest possible performance at any cost, creating aspirational audio products that deliver state-of-the-art sonics. And that’s why, back in 2009, I eagerly headed to my local hi-fi store (Music Lovers Audio in Berkeley, CA) to check out Wilson Audio’s Sasha loudspeaker.… Read the full article

Florida 2019: Wilson Audio, Audio Research, VPI and Transparent

By | February 23rd, 2019|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , |

The Wilson Audio room was a bit of a reunion of sorts for me.  This room seemed to be the room that many visited first.  Bart suggested to many to start at the 8th floor and “work your way down”.  And no wonder as it offered, in my humble opinion, the best sound at the show.  But it was a journey to get this sound as I will soon explain.

The first familiar person I saw Peter McGrath who had not long ago set up my own Wilsons which was a tremendous success.  … Read the full article

VPI Industries was in direct control, AudioShield had the room well protected, Krell and Wilson Audio tango with reference style, Soundsmith and Lyra go head-to-head, Nordost throws a lasso around the crowd.

Twice as impressive as one, there were two of the new VPI Industries HW-40 direct drive turntables on hand. Each equipped with a JWM-12 “Fatboy” tonearm, which is included in the price of the HW-40 turntable, and is standard. The HW-40 has benefitted from forty years of refinement as it now carries an updated and upgraded direct drive motor system, Nordost wiring, and an all new VTA Base on the fly.… Read the full article

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

Wilson Audio Sasha DAW with dCS Bartók DAC | First Listen

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
