        I might vote, but it seems that my Wilsons do not exist.

        I guess if its not current Wilson model, its no longer worthy of owning

        Metamatic,

        Unfortunately there is a limit on the number of poll answers that can be added. Therefore, I have only put the current models.

        Please, post your model here!

          yes, the limit is 15 :-) you almost got 1/2 the way there.
          just adding one more choice - other Wilson speakers would have sufficed as any owner of Wilson not on the list cannot see the results of the poll.

                      I've always had a warm spot in my heart for Wilsons.

                      Guess it was about five or six years ago, my choice for a reference speaker came down to Wilson Sasha 1s, Evolution Acoustics MM3 and Martin-Logan Summit-Xs. The ML eventually won out because of cost then. But the Sashas were a harbinger of more good things to come from Wilson. Before that, the Wilsons excelled at many things but just didn't have the low level resolution and subtlety that I needed in a speaker. That I always felt switching back and forth between the Wilsons and the Maggies. The Sashas changed that feeling.

                      Back in the '90s Dave lent me a pair of WP 5.1s for a single-ended amplifier review project I was doing for Audio Adventure magazine. Tried them with a number of SE amplifier including some from Audio Note and Cary. Got the 5.1s to really sound good with the Audio Note SE amp (as well as my cjs at the time). At that time, Mike Trei and Herb Reichert were the US AN importers and they loved the sound of the amps on the WPs from the mid-bass thru lower midrange. Of course, I liked my way of setting up the speaker more than the recommended Wilson setup procedure.

                        Myles - It was during RMAF several years ago that I decided to buy the Alexias. On a Friday afternoon, you and I were listening to some of your wonderful vinyl in Nick Doshi's room sponsored by Paragon. Alexias were ordered a month after that.

                        I think Mark and Bruce were in the room too that year.
