Wilson Audio Sabrina

Wilson Audio’s Peter McGrath and John Giolas walked me through the design of the new $15,000/pair Sabrina. The loudspeaker has same general form factor and is slightly taller than their original WATT-Puppy, which was also a $15,000/pair speaker when it was first produced more than 20 years ago.

What's different? First of all, the Sabrina is a one-box design. Its driver component is similar to the WP in that it uses a silk-dome tweeter, a 5" ScanSpeak midrange unit, and an 8" woofer, and a separate chamber absorbs the tweeter's back wave. The Wilson Sabrina was only being shown, not demonstrated, in Wilson's suite at the Mirage, so I wasn't able to listen to this promising design.
