Al's System (WBF)
I owned speakers from all these companies (Q3, Alexia, Sasha, Sophia 3, Guarnieri Memento etc.).
You summed it all up very very very accurately. Bravo.
Having totally different approaches to music reproduction, I love both Wilson and Magico speakers.

It may be true for the Q series. But all Q series speakers sound very different to the current S series or M3.

I have never been to the Munich show, so who knows whether all those systems, including my Magico system, sound alike? But, I tend to doubt it.
