Wilson Audio’s Sabrina X is here!

 

 

We are thrilled to be the only retailer in Atlanta, and one of very few in the entire Southeast, to have this amazing new speaker for you to see, touch and most importantly, listen to! Here’s a bit more information from Wilson Audio:

Evolution

The SabrinaX is a ground-up rethinking of the Sabrina, perhaps the most universally loved of Wilson’s small, floor-standing loudspeakers during the last several decades. The original Sabrina attracted a loyal, almost cult-like following. It was a rare combination of traditional Wilson virtues such as musical authority, dynamic resolution, midrange beauty and integrity, and a sense of inherent musical “rightness.” This list of achievements and qualities would be uncommon in any loudspeaker. When considering Sabrina\’s compact size and relative affordability, it becomes obvious why so many audiophiles and music lovers admire Sabrina.  The design goal with SabrinaX was to preserve the original model\’s inherent affability, flexibility, and its astonishing technical prowess while, at the same time, elevate its resolution, bass-transient speed, and clarity, and overall resolution and transparency.

Enclosure

The original Sabrina utilized X-Material only in its baffle and lower spike plate. Now, the SabrinaX outer enclosure is constructed entirely from X-Material. The SabrinaX cabinet comes that much closer to the near-silent ideal Wilson has systematically pursued for decades.  The music emerges through SabrinaX from a blacker background. Bass transient performance and clarity are vastly improved. Listeners will hear superior “silence between the notes,” which, among other factors, enhance Sabrina’s rhythmic timing and pace.

Drivers

The Wilson tweeter combines ultra-low distortion, micro and macro contrast, and high resolution with a sense of ease, accessibility, and supreme musicality. Technically and musically, the MK5 continues to be the most honest and engaging tweeter we’ve experienced. When the new woofers’ intrinsically excellent dynamic resolution and transient performance combines with the SabrinaX’s more inert cabinet, the result is ultra-fast and articulate midbass and a solid and authoritative bass foundation.

Audio CapX

The first design to benefit from Wilson’s recent integration of capacitor design and manufacturer into the factory in Provo, Utah, was the Chronosonic XVX. Led by engineer Vern Credille, the design team developed a proprietary multi-wound capacitor specifically for the XVX, which the engineers dubbed Wilson AudioCapX-WA. The team took a similar approach with Wilson\’s smallest floorstander. Now, SabrinaX\’s crossover benefits from a version of the Wilson AudioCapX specific to its needs. The new capacitor technology significantly lowers the noise floor to even greater extremes, allowing the listener to hear more detail and resolution.

Hardware

The new model utilizes the same Wilson designed and manufactured binding post as the XVX. It is easier to tighten by hand, and also features a banana plug option. This unique Wilson Audio connector resets the bar for reliability and sonic integrity for high-current connections.

Trust us, you really need to see this speaker! Come down to the store to check it out for yourself!
