Wilson Audio Alexandria X-2 Series 2 Loudspeaker
Condition: Used In Excellent condition
This is a loudspeaker that is remarkable in many ways, its sense of musical intimacy. That might seem an odd statement about a 6'-tall, six-driver-per-side, 1500-pound pair of loudspeakers. Mega-speakers have traditionally excelled at bass extension, dynamics, scale, and power, but have tended to sound “big” even on small-scale music. The consequence of this phenomenon is a trade-off that favored the visceral thrill-ride of large-scale orchestral music at the expense of connection, subtlety, and intimacy with solo instruments, duets, and small ensembles.
But the X-2 defies the paradigm; this new Wilson is chameleon-like in its ability to sound big and forceful when the music demands—an area in which it is unparalleled—and then to seemingly shrink to the size of a mini-monitor when reproducing solo classical guitar. It’s not just the physical size of instrumental images that the X-2 gets right; it also resolves fine information in a gentle and understated way, conveying to the listener a heightened degree of musical expression.
