When I interviewed recording engineer Roy Halee (Simon and Garfunkel, The Byrds, The Lovin' Spoonful, etc.) at his home in Connecticut back in 1991, he pointed to his pair of monolithic Infinity IRS loudspeakers and said, "When I want to listen for pleasure, I listen to those." He then pointed to a pair of early-edition Wilson Audio Specialties WATT/Puppys in a second system set up in the corner of his large listening room. "When I want to hear what's on a recording I've made, I listen to those
." It was obvious: Halee respected the Wilsons, but he loved
the Infinitys. Not surprising, since Dave Wilson
designed the WATT section to be a highly accurate portable monitor, and monitors are designed for respect, not love.
