    Krelles system with SMT room treatment!

    Thank you very much! Do you know by approximately how many decibels the adjustment can reduce a frequency peak?

    What's less fun and less safe than listening to music?

    Wow, Steve! That sounds like quite an adventure! I’m glad you all are basically okay!

    KeithR's "Dream Speaker" Search

    I don’t think this is a good idea. I’m not sure we all could handle you fretting over two pairs of speakers. :)

    Krelles system with SMT room treatment!

    What has been your experience with the adjustable bass traps? How difficult is it to make the adjustment to absorb an offending frequency?

    And there is also the middle way: a dedicated space but not a dedicated room.

    Master & Dynamic MW07 Ear Pods

    Yes, I saw those noise-cancelling Sonys. They look very nice too — with great reviews!

    Master & Dynamic MW07 Ear Pods

    I never listen to music with headphones, and I often find Bluetooth audio a little bit annoying. Yet, there are some exercises in a gym which become cumbersome if you have a wire running from a smart phone in your pocket and then along your body up to over-the -ear headphones. It’s just a bit...

    KeithR's "Dream Speaker" Search

    Phil, Even though my natural inclination is to have the speakers start on the short wall, I am very sympathetic to the angst Keith has experienced for the last two years dealing with asymmetrical front “corners.” I think it will put his mind at rest to start the new room with a symmetrical...

    Is Wilson losing their marketing edge?

    I think Siegfried II on WAMM would be great!

    Is Wilson losing their marketing edge?

    This is an easy one for me. I personally would take the WAMM (no Subsonics). I like the height and the additional midrange drivers of the WAMM over the XLF.

    Is Wilson losing their marketing edge?

    I totally agree that even without the Subsonics the Master Chronosonic is better by far than the XLF. I am not historically a big Wilson Audio fan, but my ears don’t mislead me. I loved the Master Chronosonics + Subsonics; I just don’t know exactly why. I would like a pair of Subsonics (and...

    Is Wilson losing their marketing edge?

    Hi Tim, I agree objectively with every single point you wrote. Still, those objectively correct points often have not deterred professional reviewers from using their reasonable best efforts to make such comparisons. At least I am postulating a comparison of two speakers of the same dynamic...

    Is Wilson losing their marketing edge?

    Robert Harley reviewed extremely favorably the Rockport Lyra. Interestingly, I think that many of his subjective comments about the Alexx apply very well to what I hear from the Lyra. I wish he had tried in some way to compare and contrast the sonic attributes of the Alexx to what he remembered...

    Point 5 vs Point 8 amplifiers

    Welcome to WBF, Larry! Our member PeterA, a long-time Pass Labs owner, I am sure in due course will see this thread and provide valuable commentary on your question. Coincidentally he has been analyzing .5 versus .8 amplifiers.

    OMG - have you seen those Magnepans !?

    I have always wished that the top-of-the-line Magnepans were offered with a cost-no-limit structural solidity and vibration free build quality. But when I mentioned this to my friend who has the most Magnepan experience (as a customer) of anybody I have ever met, he wondered whether the wood...

    That is a wonderful review! Congratulations to Wilson Audio!

    My monitor/subwoofer system

    Hello Al, I am glad the DeOxit helped with irritating highs. Do you have any theory at all to explain why cleaning the connectors reduces irritating high frequency sounds?

    Von Schweikert Ultra 9's Are The Cover of This Month's Absolute Sound

    Congratulations, Leif! Yes, it is an excellent sign if the reviewer buys the component under review!

    Did you find the Alexia to be able to throw an image comparable to the scale and size of the image of the Sound Labs?

    Review: Reference 3A Reflector monitors

    Congratulations on ameliorating that bit of treble brightness!

    The WAMM absolutely is installed directly by Wilson Audio. I just don’t happen to know if the XVX will be installed directly by Wilson Audio as well.

    Was that the sound of Harry Pearson rolling over in his grave?

    I have remained deliberately and gleefully ignorant about MQA. All I know is that I love my Qobuz! I like Robert Harley. He is a very nice guy!

    YG Hailey 2.2, Magico M2 or Avantgarde Duo XD ?

    Among multi-way dynamic driver speakers which excel in transparency and dynamics and coherence I think the Sonja 2.2/2.3 is fantastic. I personally still prefer the slightly warmer presentation of the Rockport Lyra, but I have tremendous respect for the YGs, and I totally get why the people who...

    A highly qualified technician from Wilson Audio (or perhaps from a dealer in whom Wilson Audio has supreme confidence) will set them up. Knowing the speakers will be properly set up and fine-tuned in your home is one of the stress-reducing elements of the Wilson Audio package.

    Gryphon Audio Pendragon

    From separate outputs on the line stage preamplifier or from a throughput coming out of the woofer tower the full range signal goes to an external, passive, high-pass filter at the base of the ribbon tower. The ribbon driver rolls off naturally. You are correct that the passive crossover does...

    Thank you for your reply! Where do you set your “Q” control? What effect on the sound have you experienced the “Q” control to have?
