One of our local, high end retailers (Ne Plus Ultra) put on a demo of David Wilson's new Alexandria and Duette loudspeakers this evening, with Wilson discussing his thoughts on loudspeakers and audio.
I won't make this a long, drawn-out post on the whole evening, but a couple of things that I found noteworthy are:
1. As impressive as the Alexandria speaker is, the Duette completely blew my mind. Under perhaps the worst possible conditions for loudspeaker placement, these little speakers sounded better than anything I have ever heard...well, until we moved on to the Alexandria.
2. David Wilson is a heck of a nice guy and a class act.
3. The Alexandria speaker is perfection.
4. I don't get out much; audio geeks are not normal people.
5. My system sounds terrible tonight.
