Just reading info and rviewes of Wilson Bensch Dscovery's.Need to hear them.Can get new B&W,Gallo RefIII's,Linn's and others at dealker cost (where I used to wrok).Great speakers like Qaud 988's,Audio Physic Virgo III's or $10K list Infintiy Preludes are $3500 if you look hard enough.Add $1500 more and you could get early version AVANTGARD's!!!!!
So what am I doing other than consfusing/Frustrating myself by reading about an $8K list Wilson Bnenesch Discovery?Because their so fuckin' coolthat's why!!Aluminum frames and carbon which cut size for that level of inertness down to nothing compared with MDF.With integral pole they have mid bass driver and tweeter but also attached to pole is isobaric bass module making tham tall strange shaped monitors that are suppose to sound awesome.But while reading about them copuldn't help but think of the Tubulous Vihn Vu offering where at shows he get's the "so where's the sub?"question all the time.Always wated Linn Isobaric but never got them way back.Now Totems (large)Mani-2 is not isobaric but direct coupled woofers firing in opposite direction so the bookshelf Advent sized box practically to RUMBLES it goes so low.But with stands they are pretty big.So Maybe the Isobaric idea made sense back in the day and Vu's THREE six and half inch drivers make seense because yes they look cool,can be toe'd in without really moving them (a la the old B&W Matrix mid/tweeter head) and cost not $8K like the WB's but a mere $2500!Much more a speaker put against the gallo Ref III's at $3K (without extra a $1K amp for dual coil subs).BTW anybody following the gallo thing I saw ad for used blocks for them to sit on by Brightstar.My guess is Bob Warzalla has allready designed chunk of heavy iron that will blow doors on all comers and if Vu's spekers catch on he'll make bases for them too.Need to hear what you guy are talking about!!!
