The Venere 3.0 stands out through its larger cabinet, wider frequency response, and its implementation of a driver dedicated entirely to midrange frequencies. This is a three-way floor speaker characterised by the typical Lyre form, a homage to its 'mother' Aida and at the same time is a key functional and aesthetic element of great prestige.
We have designed a speaker that goes beyond modernity, a stage but not an endpoint along our journey toward new and ambitious projects for the future. Completion and evolution of the collection, the "S" inherits Venere's design and has an electro-acoustic legacy strongly connected with the finest traditions of our brand. Venere S is made in Italy, at the Sonus faber headquarters in Arcugnano where it is assembled entirely by hand.
The XLF builds on the strength and success of the Alexandria Series 2 yet raises the bar on performance in every meaningful parameter: greater dynamic contrast, better harmonic expression, deeper bass, greater linearity.
The quest to achieve the performance of the larger Wilson loudspeakers in a more compact enclosure began over two years ago. With a footprint scarcely larger than a Sasha, and musicality to rival the XLF, Alexia sets a new standard for ultra-high performance in a compact full range loudspeaker.
When it came to designing the Series 2, every angle and curve was scrutinized, every structural element was considered, each of the metal components, large and small, were carefully examined for possible improvements. Nearly everything in the Alexia has been reworked for the Series 2 with an eye toward more elegantly following the underlying technological function responsible for the Alexia’s intrinsic musical rightness.
Alexx incorporates Wilson’s latest thinking on loudspeaker design in the areas of time-domain geometry, driver configuration, and driver development. It is the latest beneficiary of Wilson’s ongoing analysis of low-resonance cabinet strategies via laser micrometer. Alexx draws from both recent designs such as the Alexia and the Sabrina, as well as the WAMM—Dave Wilson’s up and coming Magnum Opus—with which it was developed concurrently.
Alida is the latest Special Applications product from Wilson Audio. It was designed to offer the timbrel neutrality, dynamic response, soundstage depth, and transparency of floor-standing Wilson loudspeakers, but to do so in the extremely adverse conditions of wall-mounted applications. The Alida is a perfect example of performance disproportionate to size.
Duette is a truly unique product in the audio world: a compact loudspeaker designed specifically for installations where space or aesthetics require placing the loudspeaker near a boundary, such as a wall or in a bookshelf.
The objective for Sabrina was to take the wealth of knowledge and experience contained in the XLF and distill it down to its essence. To create a loudspeaker that, like the first WATT/Puppy, could stand alongside much larger systems and offer the kind of dynamic contrast and harmonic expression that is the defining character of Wilson Audio loudspeakers.
Sasha, like the WATT/Puppy before it, remains Wilson’s best selling speaker. Its combination of high performance in a relatively compact form factor has always been its greatest strength. The Sasha Series-2 takes the performance side of that equation to an entirely new plane.
Thor is popularly known as the Norse god of thunder. He is often depicted carrying a short-handled hammer named Mjollnir, a symbol of his awesome power. Thunder is fitting to associate with Wilson Audio's new state-of-the-art subwoofer. Truth be told, Wilson’s large subwoofer may put to shame the notion of thunder, which primarily occupies the frequency spectrum from 20-120 hertz. Thor's Hammer (the subwoofer) is capable of reproducing at full volume the lowest pipe organ note at 16 Hz.
Reproducing the emotional impact of live music through two-channel reproduction has been the organizing passion of Wilson Audio since its inception over four decades ago. Applying the same experience and expertise to multi-channel theater systems was simply the natural extension of that passion.
The second generation WATCH Dog subwoofer has undergone the most radical redesign of any of the WATCH system components. Specifically, it has been transformed from an active subwoofer (with a built-in amplifier), to a passive, unamplified unit.
The new Yvette draws from a rich tradition. But, perhaps more importantly, it derives its core technology directly from the enormous research-and-development reservoir of what is perhaps Wilson’s most prolific era of innovation to date. Wilson’s latest Sasha Series 2, the Alexia, the leading-edge Alexx have all informed the Yvette project, in some cases, with identical components. And like the Alexx, the Yvette was developed alongside Dave Wilson’s new WAMM project. Yvette is the most advanced and musically refined single-enclosure loudspeaker in Wilson’s history.
