Upgrading from Martin Logan ESL15a w/Force subs to Wilson Sasha Daw or Alexia 2 w/JL subs
I would like some guidance on switching from ML to the Wilsons mentioned above. While I do really enjoy the ML I'm looking for something smaller as well a better connection between the highs and lows which both of the Wilsons do better. There are numerous other things I like about the Wilsons as well.
Currently, I have the McIntosh MC-1.25kwh mono blocks with my ML center powered by a MC-601. My speaker wire is transparent. My Processor is a McIntosh MX160 and I am using Roon with a NAS and Lumin Streamer. I will also be adding a McIntosh pre-amp to improve performance on the 2 channel. Haven't decided between C2700 or C53 yet. Adding a Clear Audio Concept turntable but haven't settled in on cartridge. There is no rush to do anything, so I'm open to opinions.
A couple comments on the Wilson's.....the midrange and tweeter are the same on both but the Alexia 2 has much more adjustability. While demoing without the subs the Sasha Daw bass hit me but the Alexia 2 went through me. Sasha has 2 - 8" bass drivers and the Alexia 2 has an 8" and a 10".
I listen to all types of music including Jazz from the 50's - 60's, Acoustic, classical symphonies, rock and progressive/alternative rock.
Thanks in advance for your honest feedback.
