    library with 40 000 recordings showcased in a million dollar room with state of the art audio What impact does this unique academic facility have on the lives Alexia Concept To Reality Alexia began with a simple question What would happen if we merged the time domain accuracy and driver technology of the Alexandria XLF with a form factor similar to the Sasha But as Wilson s engineers began development of Alexia they quickly realized that as seemingly simple as this idea was its real world implementation if possible at all would require all of Dave Wilson and his team s resources ingenuity and engineering expertise In this movie we follow the journey of Wilson s engineering team Announcing Alexia It s not often that Wilson Audio announces an all new loudspeaker so when we do it is always surrounded by a sense of occasion Announcing Alexia In terms of price point it is positioned between Sasha W P and MAXX Alexia s form factor is similar to the Sasha W P even sharing its room friendly footprint But Alexia is much more ambitious and complex inheriting much of its technology and overall sonic personality from Wilson s flagship the Alexandria XLF The Choice The Choice explores a simple question Is there intrinsic merit in accomplishing a task to the best of one s ability Certainly this idea pervades the culture of Wilson Audio and is rooted in the character of its founder It finds expression in the daily efforts of the craftsmen who thrive in this environment precisely because they love the challenge of doing their best work And it is manifest in the myriad

Dave the idealist insists that no detail is too small to be scrutinized Dave the empiricist knows that it s all too easy to be seduced by the technological promise of a given part See how these two defining characteristics played out in Wilson s new flagship loudspeaker Announcing the Alexandria XLF Dave Wilson believes in the end result He has spent a lifetime refining the art and science of the empirical approach Dave knows that engineers and technicians are often seduced by exotic high tech elements that potentially make up a product The technical veracity of any given part no matter how it appears on paper is only as good as the experience it produces For Dave the experience is everything Provenance provenance n a term primarily used to describe the origin and hence the authenticity of an artifact or piece of art In manufacturing the term implies the notion that certain products embody the culture and place they are made and would lose that essential character if they were designed or built somewhere else Few would dispute that a Ferrari is a quintessentially Italian automobile So what is the provenance of a Wilson loudspeaker Modus Operandi An impressionistic look inside the Wilson factory at our loudspeakers being built It s a process that presents a daily challenge to the craftspeople involved realizing the only hope of preserving the pure ideal of the

    spearhead the creation of a campus listening library with 40 000 recordings showcased in a million dollar room with state of the art audio What impact does this unique academic facility have on the lives Alexia Concept To Reality Alexia began with a simple question What would happen if we merged the time domain accuracy and driver technology of the Alexandria XLF with a form factor similar to the Sasha But as Wilson s engineers began development of Alexia they quickly realized that as seemingly simple as this idea was its real world implementation if possible at all would require all of Dave Wilson and his team s resources ingenuity and engineering expertise In this movie we follow the journey of Wilson s engineering team Announcing Alexia It s not often that Wilson Audio announces an all new loudspeaker so when we do it is always surrounded by a sense of occasion Announcing Alexia In terms of price point it is positioned between Sasha W P and MAXX Alexia s form factor is similar to the Sasha W P even sharing its room friendly footprint But Alexia is much more ambitious and complex inheriting much of its technology and overall sonic personality from Wilson s flagship the Alexandria XLF The Choice The Choice explores a simple question Is there intrinsic merit in accomplishing a task to the best of one s ability Certainly this idea pervades the culture of Wilson Audio and is rooted in the character of its founder It finds expression in the daily efforts of the craftsmen who thrive in this environment precisely because they love the challenge of doing their best work And it is manifest in the myriad detailed ways Wilson products themselves exhibit the dedication to excellence for its own sake and The Observer and the XLF From his earliest days as a loudspeaker designer Dave has been transfixed by this observation Why don t loudspeakers sound more like live unampflified music The Alexandria XLF project was launched as the most unrestrained effort to date to close the distance between live and reproduced sound Despite the obvious fact that a loudspeaker will ultimately be judged by how it sounds many designers instinctively devalue listening as an objective design tool As a result these loudspeaker designers reject th Alexandria XLF Idealism and Technology Dave is an idealist but he is also a disciplined empiricist Dave the idealist insists that no detail is too small to be scrutinized Dave the empiricist knows that it s all too easy to be seduced by the technological promise of a given part See how these two defining characteristics played out in Wilson s new flagship loudspeaker Announcing the Alexandria XLF Dave Wilson believes in the end result He has spent a lifetime refining the art and science of the empirical approach Dave knows that engineers and technicians are often seduced by exotic high tech elements that potentially make up a product The technical veracity of any given part no matter how it appears on paper is only as good as the experience it produces For Dave the experience is everything Provenance provenance n a term primarily used to describe the origin and hence the authenticity of an artifact or piece of art In manufacturing the term implies the notion that certain products embody the culture and place they are made and would lose that essential character if they were designed or built somewhere else Few would dispute that a Ferrari is a quintessentially Italian automobile So what is the provenance of a Wilson loudspeaker Modus Operandi An impressionistic look inside the Wilson factory at our loudspeakers being built It s a process that presents a daily challenge to the craftspeople involved realizing the only hope of preserving the pure ideal of the loudspeaker as it undergoes metamorphosis into physical product lies in flawless execution at every stage of manufacture Music Matters at Definitive Audio February 9 2011 Wilson Audio participated in the 6th annual Music Matters event at Definitive Audio in Seattle WA It was an evening devoted to two channel music reproduction and an opportunity to build community with listeners and manufacturers who have never lost their passion for the possibilities of high end music systems Wilson paired their Sasha loudspeakers with Audio Research who debuted the prototype of their new Reference 150 amplifier Six Rooms in Two Days
