The feature attraction was the new Wilson Alexia ($48,500/pair), a speaker with the footprint of a Sasha, but with technology borrowed from the more expensive Alexandria 2 XLF. The soft-dome tweeterpictured belowis a proprietary design, designed by Dave Wilson (who else?). The system used electronics by VTL (TL-7.5 Series II line stage, $20,000, TP-6.5 phono stage, $10,500, MB-450 Series II monoblock amplifiers, $18,000/pair), with phono, digital sources, and cables all priced at the "if you have to ask . . ." level.
The system had the clarity and dynamics that Wilson speakers are famous for. Peter McGrath played some of his own recordings; I was particularly impressed by a recording of a Haydn string quartet by the Tokyo String Quartetapparently their last recording before retiring.
