Wilson Audio Sasha W/P

David A. Wilson builds the world with the best and most expensive boxes. But his charaktervollster and most transducers is the Sasha for 30000 euros.

  2. Data sheet

Thousands of times tells is the story of Wilson Audio. It is the story of a man who set out to make the legendary reference recordings with Keith Johnson, the all time popular listening monitors were too bad but.

It is the story of the wise man David A. Wilson, certain criteria as essential for an optimal speaker developed – at an early stage and by those criteria he not defers until today. About the characteristic pyramid-like body form of his first work called Watt/puppy that was copied around the world often because of their excellent acoustic characteristics and is reflected also in the presented here Sasha.

Or Wilson’s assessment, that wood – which will have variation whatsoever – never the stiffness and damping behavior, he suggests that as absolutely necessary. Or, as he assured me at this year’s CES: “never a loudspeaker cabinet made of MDF I will build.” Therefore, it is also the story of a seeker who started with ceramic packages in its first Watt/Puppy combinations and now with the Sasha and her mix of different panel materials seems to be pretty close to the target. The materials referred to somewhat cryptically as “X” and “M” behind a kind of artificial stone. Exactly here is phenolic-resin plates filled with minerals.

Cleanest stimuli for

The Schallwande, for example, almost always consist of extremely hard plates X-, so – an integral part of the Wilson doctrine – no energy is lost or pulses of low – and midrange it be watered down that the front is – what happens entirely in wood. The material with X-factor is so stiff and tight that it directly a can milling thread.

Wilson, however, like to used the slightly softer M material that exists in various hardness and be damping levels for the side walls. The case of Sasha W/P is a sophisticated acoustically fine system of different hard disk.

But this artificial stone for the construction of boxes housings also seems so useful, so difficult is its processing. The process, as one of the stately Wilson case arises from these plates, is extremely tedious. After many sanding and painting stages small works of art emerge, which, because Wilson has two painting lines in the House, are also really to have every color variation.

But you can not reduce the Sasha on their unique housing. Wilson is neutrality – and momentum advocate, and he knows that for this purpose a certain efficiency of its loudspeakers is needed. The two 8-inch bass of seas, the self-developed 7-inch midrange and the inverted titanium dome focal are sonically well reputation and considered to be relatively strong to efficiency. The TESTfactory determined a value of over 87 decibels for the Sasha (2 volts / 1 meter). This is measured at the high end competition very neat – as also the maximum level of 108 decibels. so you can get the Sasha live level.

Soft under lock and key

It should be still too loud, blowing the resistors of high performance front mid-range speakers and tweeters. They are easily accessible. Quite in contrast to the tender, from the Wilson makes a real state secret. According to a single switch or images he refused friendly, but very determined to my desire. Here, probably too much knowledge there to show them the public and thus the competitors.

Wilson still revealed a key tenet of his soft philosophy: “the crossover can never in a housing with the basses sit; “the impact is too great.” The turnout in a hermetically separated wing in the bottom part resides with the Sasha. In addition, a rotating plate dress made of MU metal protects the components against any form of electromagnetic interference. So that the coils not by the high current flow start time, the entire metal pan is sealed with a damping adhesive. Break should go based on a component – which it almost never does–the entire unit must be replaced.

Spikes are mandatory & freestyle

Not only at the Sasha himself, Wilson places emphasis on spikes. Different lengths below the midrange head make for perfect placement on the head of the listener. And amazingly, each change is understandable with the Sasha. There is this point which engages with the sound image with her. Then, listening to her is a dream. I close my eyes, and the Sasha stood me in the recording room.

The successor to Watt/puppy can not even approach the suspected sprout, that only one speaker plays. At one time, the piano and the violin of “Valse Bluette” (track 5 of track CD) how to access are close before the listening Chair. The micro-dynamic details of the violin come so easily and suddenly, as Daniel Gaede would play right in front of my nose. The intensity with which the Sasha makes his “Vulnerasti cor meum” (track 9 of the cover CD) sing the Saxon Vocalensemble, furthers goosebumps and awakens the desire for more. Obviously, Wilson’s idea of the housing saves little energy, is it justifiable.

The benefits are especially clear when low food is on the agenda. The hard kicks that, Pepe Romero (“Flamenco”) treated the wood floor, the wummerige vibration of stage – all that pushes the Sasha 1:1 in the listening room. And how fine she still differentiated here – this is nothing less than a sensation.

Perhaps there are boxes which can resolve finer in the treble and a total slightly smoother play. But barely a speaker celebrates this intensity while listening to music, the direct experience of such recordings more impressive than Wilson’s Sasha W/P.
