  • Wilson Audio: Alexandria XLF
    like the real thing as possible Size weight and manufacturing complexity are all of little consequence when the task at hand is to make a loudspeaker that outperforms the Series 2 Alexandria in every significant measure and brings the listener an unmistakable step closer to the exhilaration of a live musical event Alexandria XLF Videos Images News Awards Introduction Features Specifications Alexandria XLF If one s goal is to reproduce the sound of live music logic suggests that at some point the designer must listen to his creation in order to understand how much or how little it sounds like the live event Some designers in the industry maintain that making judgments on the success of one s design through listening is subjective and unscientific They believe that only through the application of the right theories or the strict adherence to a certain set of measurements can one reliably approach the ideal Yet the history of high end audio is littered with electronics and loudspeakers that achieve sterling performance on the test bench and yet to the ears of even the average listener fail to produce life like sound They lack the ineffable sense of rightness that momentarily suspends disbelief

  • Wilson Audio: Alexx
    vertically This arrangement has several advantages among which is greater dynamic range in the midrange portion of the spectrum Wilson has employed various versions of MTM driver geometries starting with the X 1 Grand SLAMM However Wilson s MTM configurations have always been far more sophisticated and complex than competing designs Rather than mounting the three drivers that make up the MTM in a flat baffle Wilson has invariably employed a modular approach This has several benefits one being the ability to optimize the enclosure properties for each driver Most importantly in terms of Wilson s unique technology the separate modules in the MTM can be made to be adjustable both in terms of the relative position of each driver module one to another in the time domain as well as having the ability to optimize each driver s dispersion characteristics within the array For the Alexx Wilson s engineering team has once again reimagined the MTM geometry Drawn from technology developed in conjunction with the upcoming WAMM the Alexx s midrange is divided between two different drivers each covering a portion of the mid band area The seven inch is the celebrated Wilson mid first introduced in the Alexandria XLF The 5 75 inch is the midrange driver most recently found in the Sabrina The frequencies covered by the two drivers are therefore expanded upward the two together covering a broader portion of the vital midrange Further each of the two drivers is optimized for the portion of the mid band best suited to their unique strengths The engineers at Wilson have blended the two drivers masterfully ensuring that the two perform seamlessly and coherently together The unprecedented combination of weight speed articulation and authority can only be fully understood by listening to the Alexx All new Woofer Design Developing Alexx simultaneously with the WAMM has resulted in other shared technologies The all new ten and half inch and twelve and a half inch woofers incorporated into the Alexx were first developed for the WAMM project In turn the technology for these two new woofers evolved from the proprietary eight and ten inch models found in the Alexia Thus Wilson continues its tradition of systematically evolving technology across platforms each new iteration building on the achievements of the previous projects These new ten and twelve inch woofers incorporate all of Wilson s latest current thinking on accurate low frequency music reproduction Working together with Alexx s ultra low resonance woofer enclosure which now features an angled baffle for even better time domain integration the new woofers raise the bar for bottom octave speed authority and musicality Adjustability of the Upper Modules in the Time Domain The Alexx builds upon the Alexandria XLF s aspherical propagation delay correction for its upper three modules For the first time a Wilson array features two stair steps one for each of the two midrange modules This allows for minute and precise adjustment of both the proper time alignment of the drivers as well

  • Wilson Audio: Sasha Series-2
    lifelong quest for the absolute sound The WATT the upper module of the combination began in the mid eighties as a utilitarian recording tool a portable ultra high resolution location monitor for the recordings he was then making The WATT was later paired with a dedicated woofer module the Puppy The WATT Puppy combo became Wilson Audio s largest selling product The reason was simple it was a truly compact full range loudspeaker that could fit easily in most real world listening rooms while still offering the bass speed and extension the dynamics and musicality associated with much larger systems With the advent of Sasha W P Dave and his team re imagined the platform as a unified system The previously discrete WATT which emblematic of its location monitor heritage could function as a stand alone loudspeaker was discontinued The Sasha was redesigned from the ground up as an integrated system allowing Wilson to optimize every detail to achieve the next quantum leap in compact loudspeaker performance Research and development is a never ending process at Wilson Audio Inevitably technology that didn t exist at the debut of Sasha W P Series 1 influenced the design and execution of Sasha

  • Wilson Audio: Sophia Series-3
    News Awards Introduction Specifications Sophia Series 3 Dave Wilson once observed that when the original Sophia was launched in 2001 it was inevitably described in the audio press as Wilson Audio s entry level floor standing loudspeaker While Sophia remains Wilson s most affordable floorstander focusing on price obscures an important fact which was that price was incidental to Sophia s actual design objective What Dave and the Wilson design team set out to create was a loudspeaker that unlike its siblings at the time X 1 GrandSLAMM and WATT Puppy was less demanding of rooms and electronics Sophia was designed to be a product easy to drive easy to own and one that invited its owner to just relax into the enjoyment of music Nevertheless Sophia s true magic is that a speaker designed to sound so good with modest electronics will still reveal the nuance and detail of state of the art gear Impressive sales aside it is Sophia cult status among audiophiles which speaks to the success of the original vision It is not uncommon for Wilson customers who could easily afford the company s more expensive loudspeakers to choose Sophia just because they love the sound Drivers Crossover Since Sophia Series 2 was introduced Wilson Audio has made vast improvements in driver technology The tweeter developed for MAXX Series 3 and subsequently used in Sasha W P features a new topology that reduces the back wave reflections which otherwise propagate through the diaphragm adding noise and distortion to the primary signal By significantly reducing this source of distortion the highs have more dynamics air and resolution free of the grain nearly all other tweeters exhibit This tweeter is now part of Sophia Series 3 The proprietary Wilson midrange driver which transformed the sound of Alexandria X2

    wealth of knowledge and experience contained in the XLF and distill it down to its essence To create a loudspeaker that like the first WATT Puppy could stand alongside much larger systems and offer the kind of dynamic contrast and harmonic expression that is the defining character of Wilson Audio loudspeakers Sabrina Videos Images Introduction Features Specifications Introducing the Sabrina The inspiration for Sabrina arose from two distinct and seemingly disparate sources the original WATT Puppy and the Alexandria XLF The WATT Puppy was the result of Dave Wilson s belief that a well designed compact loudspeaker could outperform many of the much larger state of the art systems of its day Sabrina is nearly the same size as its 1980s progenitor The XLF on the other hand represents the current pinnacle of Wilson s three decades long quest to bridge the gulf between live unamplified music and its reproduction The XLF platform offers the world s most precise time alignment capability custom designed drivers and cabinet modules constructed from Wilson s proprietary materials reducing cabinet resonance and coloration to inaudible levels The objective for Sabrina was to take the wealth of knowledge and experience contained in the XLF and
