Big week next week as I am lucky enough to have the opportunity to be taken out to Wilson Audio in Utah, USA for a few days of training, factory tour and a chance to hear the awesome WAMM Master Chronosonic Loudspeakers that come in at around £650,000 for a pair, I really never thought I would get a chance to ever hear these as they are not the kind of speaker that is easy to move around to set up at a show but in fairness I would fly to Utah just for one day to hear these, especially in Wilson Audio’s own demo room so they should sound as good as possible, needless to say that we will hear the rest of the Wilson range including the new Alexia Series 2 so it should be a pretty epic trip.
Since taking on Wilson Audio a few months ago I have to say that I have been really impressed, they produce the kind of sound I love and are one of the few speaker brands that I would spend my own money on for myself, great detail, very open sound but with a solid, tight and powerful bottom end that really just pulls you into the music and to be fair I have only ever listened to their 2 entry level speakers so I fear that I could be ruined for life once I come back from this trip with the opportunity to hear the complete Wilson Audio range.
The New Wilson Audio Alexia Series 2
We are allowed to take one track to play on the WAMM Speakers so I will be taking Massive Attack’s ‘Teardrop’ as I have been using this as my demo track of choice for years so I can’t wait to hear it like never before on such an impressive speaker, I know that the Wilson ‘look’ divides opinion but how can you not be impressed by the below, quite stunning.

It does sound like we will have a pretty busy schedule, don’t worry I don’t expect any sympathy :-) but one area I am keen to learn more, being a new Wilson dealer, is ‘WASP’ or ‘Wilson Audio Setup Procedure’ as Wilson Speakers really benefit from time being spent on correct room placement and setup so hopefully once back I will be fully equipped to make our demo Sabrina’s and Yvette’s sing even more.
So basically I won’t be around all of next week so please be gentle on Wendy as she will be running the shop on her own and I will try to write some blogs whilst I am away on the whole experience.
Roll on next week :-)
Wilson Audio At Our Boys Toys Day II on July 22nd.
Finally don’t forget for our Boys Toys Day II on July 22nd that dCS, who we are visiting for the afternoon, will be running the Wilson Alexx speakers with their Vivaldi system which is not to be missed, so July really is turning out to be the Wilson Audio month :-)
