Yearning and growing my Wilson kitty for 5 years .
I have just purchased the Sasha.
Two weeks and I have them spiked and placed them in optimum position.

I was worried that my Pass Labs Xa 30.5 would be insufficient and that my room size and shape inappropriate;
The little Pass Labs amp and my odd room is no problem at all and the Sasha sounds wonderful.
Associated equipment is Wadia 521/571 and Transparent Audio Reference interconnect , speaker cable and power cable.

Still breaking in and sounding better everyday.

Well, you have a GREAT system. I wouldn't worry about your amp...30 watts of class A is pretty darn great. Some like a pre amp vs the digital volume controls. But as always trade offs..I suspect the Wadia direct has great transparency, a preamp might add more weight to the notes and have a greater volume range.

Any room treatments? How large is your room? I am a former WP 6 and 8 owner...I know you have great speakers !
