Wilson Audio Sasha DAW with dCS Bartók DAC | First Listen

By | November 11th, 2018|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

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 Sasha DAW | First Look

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

Precision in Provo: Wilson Audio WAMM Master Chronosonic

Uh oh.  Something was really off.

The Velvet Fog’s voice was all over the place.  The sibilance was nasty.

Next I know, I am standing next to a finely made miniature metal hand crank.  Dave Wilson is telling me, “okay, now we need to go from 24mm to 27.5mm”.  I slowly and carefully turn the crank in a circle clock-wise until a very fine calibration hash mark moves between 27 and 28.

I go back to the listening chair.  Dave cues up the Mel Torme track again.… Read the full article

First Listen: Wilson Audio Alexia Series-2 takes my breath away

By | July 2nd, 2017|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

David Wilson, founder of Wilson Audio and his son Daryl Wilson (current Wilson Audio CEO) have not stood still since that magic moment 5 years ago when the original Wilson Audio Alexia loudspeaker was born. Since the release of the original Alexia, Wilson has delivered the small but lethal Sabrina, the Yvette who pushed her sister Sophia out of bed, a big brother Alexx who can kick it like no other, and finally the breath-taking WAMM Master Chronosonic loudspeaker.… Read the full article

Wilson Audio raises the bar with Alexia Series-2 loudspeaker

By | June 6th, 2017|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

A legend was born in 2012 with the introduction of the Wilson Audio Alexia loudspeaker. It took the DNA & silk dome tweeter from David Wilson’s Alexandria XLF loudspeaker and brought it to a speaker with a smaller footprint, and not much larger than a Wilson Audio Sasha.

I am extremely fortunate to have the  Wilson Audio Alexia grace my listening room since December 2012. That was the same year I had the opportunity to do a video on my Audiophile Journey with Wilson & Definitive Audio in Seattle Washington.… Read the full article
