Thread: What is it about the Wilson designs that the speakers are so hard to drive? (excepting Alexandrias)

  1. #41
    In my personal experience, I had a better performance using Mark Levinson 585 than using my previous Accuphase E-560 to drive my Sashas v1. The extra power of Mark Levinson brought more dinamics and better soundstage.

    Obviously, but to be fair sarcasm doesn't translate that well on the internet.

    Yes, of course I was being silly. We need to laugh around here once in a while. Three posts in 5 years just caught my eye. I am sorry I was not more clear. Your post was not bothersome in the least; in fact the opposite.

    In my experience, the devil is in the details (as it is with most things in life and audio). Variables include room size, listening distance to speakers, preferred listening volume, room treatment (or lack thereof), speaker impedance across the frequency spectrum (not just nominal) and of course speaker sensitivity. I have found in general more power not only allows for better dynamics but also effortless sound especially at higher levels. This applies to all speakers but more so to non - horn type speakers.

    Yes, which is why I have a 100 W/ch amp for speakers that can easily be driven by 15 W/ch amps (my previous amps) or even less.
