Wilson Audio Sasha W/P Loudspeakers
With the Sasha W/P, David Wilson and his crew have done something that is nearly impossible. They have replaced a longstanding legend with something that is not merely a worthy successor to its fabled forerunner, but one that is better in every way. The Sasha speaks as one from top to bottom. It plays an extraordinary dynamic range with no discernible effort and has a tonal balance that manages to replicate live music as closely as the limits of technology allow. It remains, like every other human endeavor, imperfect, yet it sings like no other speaker.
Sasha introduces Wilson’s newest material, which is a combination of natural fibers in a phenolic resin laminate. Within Sasha, it’s employed as the baffle material in the upper module, achieving a new standard for low coloration and mid range beauty.
Sasha uses the identical mid range driver employed in the MAXX Series 3. That unit is a slightly simplified version of the all new driver developed as one of the core components of the Alexandria Series 2.
Sasha also uses the MAXX tweeter, a unit designed for lack of grain and distortion, along with a wide bandwidth.
The redesign of Sasha's bass cabinet, which has greater internal volume than the old Puppy enclosure, called for new woofers as well. The dual 8 inch units feature a new magnet and motor assembly, which significantly increases the magnetic force relative to the cone mass, resulting in improved bass dynamics and acceleration.
The Wilson Audio Sasha W/P is a most musically complete and rewarding speaker, regardless of size or price.
The Sasha produces a huge and clearly defined sound stage and provides dynamics both great and small that few speakers anywhere can match.
