Has the new Wilson Audio Alexx V (website) loudspeaker caught your interest? Are you interested in the most in-depth review available? Experience our journey with the Alexx V… The Wilson WAMM Master Chronosonic or Chronosonic XVX loudspeaker driven by the D’Agostino Relentless amplifier can be intoxicating but out of reach for most, including myself. Although out of reach, the DNA of these references trickles down the line. I was intrigued to see so much DNA from the WAMM and XVX work their way into the new Wilson Alexx V Loudspeaker.

The predecessors of the Wilson SabrinaX, which we tested a good five years ago, were owned by a colleague, but they met my listening taste so well during the hearing check that I kept toying with the idea of ​​buying them as work loudspeakers, which would save a lot of money.

Whether it’s a wholly new venture (like the Alexia) or a revised version of one of the company’s existing models (such as the Duette Series-2), it’s as if the company can do no wrong.

A New X Factor – Wilson Audio now manufactures its smallest floorstanding speaker entirely from the superior “X-Material”. Does the SabrinaX deliver the sonic experience of our hi-fi dreams? 01/29/2021 X-Material vs. Resonances In tests with its “laser vibrometer”, which makes the slightest vibrations visible, the development team had determined that the X-housing had considerably less resonances, thus offering the chance for an even cleaner, clearer and more structured performance. That was far from all, however. On top of that, the SabrinaX received the “Convergent Synergy Tweeter” in the latest “Mk5” version, which is the same tweeter as in Wilson…
