Wilson's Chronosonic XVX loudspeaker over 3/4 of a million US dollars


Wonder what the impedance/-phase angle graph will look like on these puppies, looking at the amount of D'Agostino amps used to drive them, I'd say could be pretty evil.

wouldn’t call it politics at all. simply a business decision. 
also... have to wonder why anyone would be concerned how wilson or any other speaker manufacturer wires their drivers. they are simply putting forward their idea of how they think their product should sound. each manufacturer has their own recipe. either the consumer likes it or they don’t. 
Got to hear the Wilson Alexandria (or was it is Alexx?) at Music Lovers the other day. The sound, for lack of a better term, was "effortless", and frequencies were well integrated. It’s was hard to describe, it’s like the speaker wasn’t even there. Yes, it sounded "live" just like the cliche goes. In the end, it didn’t really seem like a $100K+ speaker though.
in my experience the more that you spend on uber high end gear the more likely that you’ll be disappointed. that said if i had big bucks to spend and was inclined to keep things a very long time, i’d put it in speakers. fwiw

it's not how much you spend, it's the things you learn and and the effort you put in.

i built a perfect room in 2004 and had lots of pretty gear in that room for 10 years. but until i learned and got my nose bloodied i was not able to figure out the room and my own reference. then it took another 2 years to get the room right.

all 'uber' gear gets you is higher potential, and all a nice large room get's you is more things to figure out. but if you can put it all together....musical magic can happen.
