    Default Wilson Audio's new flagship


    A sign that hung in Albert Einstein's Princeton office famously put it this way: "Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted." It takes wisdom and experience to know the difference, especially for a loudspeaker designer.

    Wilson Audio announced the Alexandria XLF floor standing loudspeakers positioned above the existing Alexandria X-2 Series 2, which will continue in production.

    The XLF designation refers to Wilson's new bass management system. This simple system will allow users to optimize bass quality and extension to match the characteristics of the sound room. Since the system is completely passive, it avoids the sonic pitfalls endemic to all active bass management systems.

    While instantly recognizable as an Alexandria, the XLF loudspeaker has undergone a major cosmetic revision. Additionally, using Wilson's latest cabinet-analysis tools, Wilson's engineers lowered the already vanishingly low resonant contribution of the enclosure using the latest composite materials, including S-material.

    I've afraid that these speakers would not pass my Wife's Acceptance Factor criteria.
