    Vitus SIA-030

    So if the SIA-30 is Vitus's new top of the line Integrated, then what is this? https://vitusaudio.com/files/6422/upload/images/series/masterpiece/specs/MP-I201-2017%20v.1.0%20(1).pdf

    Chronosonic XVX.

    It could be that the WAMM is fast approaching the end of its limited production run and so time for a new flagship to carry the torch.

    Chronosonic XVX.

    Interesting, McIntosh makes more in revenues than Wilson? You are right, it is very niche though I imagine the Asian market is probably the biggest for all the major high end players.

    Chronosonic XVX.

    Never mind, answered my own question about the exposed metal and if painted or not. In dark colors the contrast with the metal must be striking.

    Chronosonic XVX.

    Liking the exposed sides as a design feature. Will the exposed metal be painted or not? It looks painted on the white prototype in the last pic but not in the earlier one.

    Chronosonic XVX.

    So a new flagship speaker then, the sub section looks deeper than the XLF. Do not see how the XLF continues to exist between Alexx and this. Interesting metal brace color, the black metal is a nice contrast.

    Chronosonic XVX.

    Just speculating here, per Wilson, the WAMM is going to be production limited. Maybe Wilson saw a stronger niche market out for the WAMM than they thought. So create a new product line that is close to ( may sound better due to the break through in caps), and more room friendly (less imposing)...

    $5K to $10K speaker segment is very crowded, I hope they offer something that stands out. Wander what the book shelf version will be priced at.

    The new Magico M6, M Pro replacement

    Still looks top heavy, as if the stand may be too small. I am sure it will be alright, but there is a lot of energy from the back wave of the those woofers that want to go somewhere. Wasn't it Mr. Wolf that stated we make speakers and not furniture? Referring to the fact his speakers do not...

    New Q3/mini M-Pro?

    So not a Q replacement line, but perhaps a one off. Or this is the Q5 replacement but in a smaller form. The S line is the volume product for Magico, and as good as the S is, maybe there is no need to replace the Q line product for product. And the sensitivity is pretty good for a Magico.

    New Q3/mini M-Pro?

    I am NOT dismissing bookshelf speakers, Dynaudio C1s will rock a room given enough power. But what does a bookshelf shaped speaker permanently attached to a stand bring to the table? Why didn't the S1 follow the same form? Just my opinion, but I would not be surprised to see the Q1 replaced with...

    New Q3/mini M-Pro?

    My mistake, yes the stand is permanently attached to the speaker. The reason I opined the next Q1 replacement will be like a S1, tall and narrow.

    New Q3/mini M-Pro?

    Another point, I bet the the Q1 replacement will be more along the S1 vein, and not a book shelf.
