What is the point of sharing our opinions if you are not going to own them no matter what?
There has to be some other reason for the post. Wilson speakers, regardless of if you like them or not, are some of the most talked about speakers on this web site. What more info could you possibly want that hasn't already been stated many times over?
Agreed. I own them, love them, but so what?
They are not as good as the older wilson's. FWIW, im going to listen to a demo of the speakers and meet the Wilson rep..more for curiosity.
Winner! Silliest thread of the month; maybe the year...let's see.
What speaker do you have??
"They are not as good as the older wilson's. FWIW, im going to listen to a demo of the speakers and meet the Wilson rep..more for curiosity."
Sure, go ahead and waste his time. He probably has nothing better to do than chat with you......
Interesting that you prefer the old Wilsons to the new ones. The old ones (WAMM excluded) were criticized by some for being too bright, revealing and unmusical, and many have expressed the view that the new ones are more listenable, coherent and better-balanced. I have listened to them over the years at a few dealers, and never could stand listening at any length to their older models until the WP7, Maxx and Sophia came along. Certainly not the models of neutrality, perhaps, but far more enjoyable for long-term listening, at least to my ears.
I use Alexia, they are significant better than the B&W 800 Diamond that they replaced.
The OP has never heard Wilsons, nor Vapor Audio...
shakey I didn't ask your opinion, shutup
"Sure, go ahead and waste his time. He probably has nothing better to do than chat with you......"
Look at the upside. If he's busy wasting Wilson's time, he won't be wasting ours by posting these silly threads.
This makes no sense, why listen to a speaker you have no
interest in? And waste someone's time asking useless questions which are pointless.

Since I AM a former Wilson owner, you DID ask for my opinion and you got it. Just because you don't like it, don't cry....
"This makes no sense, why listen to a speaker you have no
interest in? And waste someone's time asking useless questions which are pointless."
Because if you look at his history of posts you will see that "pointless" is very descriptive indeed......
Maxboy, didn't ask your opinion so shutup!!
Teenage TROLL alert..oops, i better shut up.
Maxboy, didn't ask your opinion so shutup!! "
Why haven't you told me to shutup yet? I have to be the biggest PIA out of all of us?
This reminds me, I need to come up with a term for threads that take a fat runny dump all over themselves before they even get out of the gate.
Because for something this magnificent, "threadcrapping" just isn't good enough!
I actually talked to the OP on the phone a few times last week. Not a bad guy, just stubborn. He'll ask your oppinion but I don't now that he's listening. This post is really funny though. He initially calls attention to any Wilson owners just to say that he'd never ever buy them (which probably puts Wilson owners on the defensive, because they did buy them) then he asks them for feedback on something he'll never buy. Just like the rest of you, that doesn't really make sense to me.
He is running a Peachtree Decco with LSA statements and isn't happy with the sound. I told him that the Decco is the weak link and that there is hidden potential in his LSA's that he hasn't tapped into yet. I've talked to him for hours about how to improve his system at the most cost effective way but he still insists that buying Atc scm 19's at $4500 or Decappos at $4000 is the answer. $4000 speakers hooked to a Decco? Really?
What gets me is that he speaks of Vapor or even Wilson like he has either owned or heard them. How are you going to plug a speaker, saying its a great buy if you have never even heard or seen them? Makes me wonder how many other people here on audiogon do the same thing.
Anyways, the dude is an alright guy. No need to make him feel bad just because of a few silly posts.
Ps, he did come up with a new term we are all using now too, "ube", and it brings a smile to face :)
"the dude is a alright guy" Telling people to shut up?

Well you're right. By the looks of it, he does a pretty good job making himself mad without any help from us. I can't wait to see his posts after he buys those ATC's. lol.
