Wilson Audio




Two things are common to every Wilson Audio loudspeaker: It is a product that Dave Wilson would want to own and listen to, and the product’s design parameters allow us to get as close to the ideal of absolute musical realism as possible. From design to finished product – each speaker undergoes a process involving the collective skills and unique abilities of every member of the Wilson Audio team. Wilson Audio’s commitment to the quality of your listening doesn’t end when you hand your money over. That’s because we, The Listening Post, will come to your home to set up your new loudspeakers in your listening environment. Every room is different, and nothing will impact the quality of your final listening experience more than how the loudspeaker is positioned in that singular space. Our audio specialists will ensure your speakers are installed to perfectly suit your individual listening environment.

The inspiration for Sabrina arose from two distinct and seemingly disparate sources: the original WATT/Puppy, and the Alexandria XLF. The WATT/Puppy was the result of Dave Wilsons belief that a well-designed compact loudspeaker c...

When it comes to a loudspeakers architectural design, Wilsons philosophy is driven by the notion that a loudspeakers form is inextricably tied to its function. The unique physical features which are required in order to reduce propagation errors and lower enclosure panel resonances have for decades now given Wilson loudspeakers their look. Arguably, there is a form of beauty singular to the congruent interplay of technical and aesthetic ideals. Sabrinas cabinet is hand-assembled, glued with proprietary adhesives, hand-sanded, gel coated, painted with multiple layers of automotive-grade paint, inspected, then polished and buffed to the same exacting standard as every other Wilson loudspeaker. The front baffle and bottom panels are built from Wilson proprietary composite, X-Material.

When the drivers in a loudspeaker array are aligned so that the leading edge of transients from each driver arrives at the listeners ear at the same time, the result is a profound improvement in dynamics, harmonic detail, transparencyand in other important areas of sonic performance.

Put simply, all the things that characterize what the brain interprets as real in music reproduction. The adjustable driver modules in Wilsons larger loudspeakers exist to provide unprecedented control over time-alignment in a large variety of listening environments. But in a single cabinet speaker such as Sabrina, the concept is still valid. Sabrinas driver array has been time optimized for the typical listening room (hence the sloping front baffle of the loudspeaker).

Every Sabrina crossover is a solitary work of art, each built individually to match the reference crossover. Wilson mandates tolerances that are as stringent as plus-or-minus point-two percent (two-tenths of a percent)much more exacting than what even the best individual components can achieve. While other high-end manufacturers accept this lack of precision as au fait, and crank out tin-soldier crossovers, Wilson believes that the owner of any of its products should hear precisely what Dave and the engineers heard when they signed off on the final prototype.

When designing the Sabrina crossover, proprietary measures were taken to reduce distortion along with its deleterious audible effects. Bass performance and dynamic contrast that met or exceeded Wilsons standards was a primary design goalmade challenging by Sabrinas a relatively compact enclosure volume. Continuous refinements in crossover topologies and specific component choices were made in large part with this in mind. The engineers at Wilson Audio employ proprietary modeling software, developed largely in-house, which considers and helps identify time-domain variables within the crossover other designers simply ignore. Subsequent listening and meticulous crossover component refinements verifies empirically the veracity of any given design choice. The metric used to gauge success is measured not solely by technical analysis, but through the methodical comparison to live, unamplified music.

Lowering noise and distortion in the Sabrina allowed the design team to hear deeper into the loudspeaker. Problems and unwanted sonic artifacts that would otherwise be obscured are clearly audible and, in turn, more easily addressed and removed. Reducing time-domain distortion with it decreases deleterious grain structure and improves settling timea salient strength of Sabrina. Sabrinas remarkable bass performance, a canny combination of speed and authority, were some of the dividends paid by the engineers innovative work on the low-pass portion of Sabrinas crossover. Midrange transient speed, tonal beauty, transparency, spatial resolution, bass alacrity, and dynamic expressionand, most importantly, a consummate verisimilitude to the live musical event, all traditional strengths of Wilson loudspeakers, are present in full measure in Sabrina.

Much has been written and said about Wilsons proprietary Convergent Synergy Tweeter. Its original design goal was to provide an ideal balance between the upper frequency smoothness of some of the so-called "exotic material" designs, and the lower frequency reach and power handling capability to mate seamlessly with Wilsons large midrange drivers. In many circles of the industry, it remains the ne plus ultra of high frequency reproduction. Convergent Synergy is a product of Wilsons ongoing innovation, and provides the basis, in simplified form, for Sabrinas tweeter. In Sabrina, an agile and dynamic 5.75" midrange driver is used. Its midrange beauty and dynamic alacrity extends into the lower treble (it is linear to beyond 3.5kHz). To capitalize on this drivers seamless musicality in this area of the bandwidth, the tweeter is crossed over at a higher frequency than in other Wilson designs. The higher crossover results in an even higher power handling capability for this rugged yet musically expressive tweeter.

Sabrinas eight-inch woofer was first used in the Alexia, and was modified for its use in this smaller, single-driver enclosure. These drivers represent trickle-down technology at its best, and represent the commitment to making Sabrina a speaker entirely worthy of the Wilson Audio name.
