Wilson Sabrinas, electronics and Subs


Hi,
I've ordered a pair of Sabrinas and I am wondering if I'll be needing my Rel sub? Also, any insight on how my Nagra MPA will sound with these new speakers? (Front end is a dCS Bartok)

No. You'll be needing three more.
The Sabrina's are nice speakers. But, given their size, bass will be limited to their physical constraints.
For me, I would set them up without the sub and listen for a long while (they have to break in). Then, add the sub and see if you need it.- My gut feeling is 'yes'. In fact, adding a second would be even better. And, adding two more would be divine. 
But, you don't mention how you are integrating the sub. Crossover, full range, etc. That will make a difference, too.
As far as the Nagra goes, it should have plenty of power, though I have never listened to one, I couldn't say how well it interacts with the Sabrina's compared to other amps.

Nagra and Wilson are very synergistic. 
I think that a property placed single sub between the mains will stun you once set up. It works for me exceptionally well with Salon 2’s , Kharma mini exquisite’s and Wilson Yvette’s. I place the SW near the right speaker and can tune it to seamless performance. I always run the mains full range. I think that multiple subs will create many issues of integration with the main subs. My SW is a B&W upper end sub with excellent room equalization. FWIW
The Wilson/Rel dealer where I bought my main system and who displays Wilson Alexx and full Rel lineup told me even Alexx benefits by having Rel added. Subtle but definitely benefits. So, yes.
