I have heard large Wilsons in people's homes and left unimpressed. I think it says more about the owners than the speakers. The XVX Chronosonic system set up at the Hong Kong AV show this year was truly impressive, and this is coming from a horn guy. It was well balanced, musical, with life-like scale and dynamics. Unfortunately, most Wilson owners I know care more about the equipment (more specifically the price) than the sound.
