Wilson Sasha 1


I've been toying with the idea of upgrading from my wilson sofia 2s to a pair of Sasha 1s.   I love my sophias, but I'm looking for a little bit more low end authority.   I've noticed on Audiogon that there are a lot of Sasha 1s being sold at some pretty discounted prices.   Is there a reason for that?

I like the aggresiveness of Wilson, but should I be looking elsewhere?

Yes, the Wilson Sasha 2 series has been released. It is quite common for any audio component to be discounted more heavily once a newer series has been released. Some folks always want the newer, "better", product.
The Sasha 1 remains a great speaker only marginally improved in the Sasha 2. The prices on the Sasha 1 in great used condition are less than 1/2 a new Sasha 2 making for an excellent purchase opportunity. 
If your are not set on Wilson, you may want to consider Eggleston.

I would certainly get a demo of the new Sabrina, for good measure.
Both Sophia & Sasha are excellent in any series (1 or 2).

Happy Listening!
Consider adding a subwoofer to your system. You can add as much slam as you want. Joe
Jnovak,  Interesting that you mention that.  I have two JL Audio f112s that i pretty much exclusively use for the home theater portion of my set up.   Maybe I should consider the new JL Audio CR-1 crossover and just try and utilize my f112s better.
I have experimented through the years with adding high quality subs to systems that already seem to have sufficient bass. In most cases I found that not only does the bass improve, but there seems to be a 'lifting -of-the veil' so to speak in the other octaves as well. I have spent some time with the JL subs (mentioned above) along with other high-end offerings. I can't help but think that the right balance of Sasha 1 and the JLs could result in something pretty special, albeit that it would take some patience to get the crossover and sub placement just right to make it all come together.
Thanks brauser.   I may start off trying to do this with the sophia 2s first and then move up to the sasha's later.
