Hi metaphacts

I didn’t know they were coming out with another version for lighter weight equipment, good to know. My cd transport weighs 33 lbs so I think it should be ok.

The three salespeople at the store all seem to be convinced that the Wilson feet are something special. All I can say is we’ll find out. Stay tuned......

Hi Scot,

I played with the original production protos under my Nagra PL-P Preamp which weighs a bit under 10lbs. I noticed that the spring mechanism (action, not a coil) was not depressing at all. When I mentioned this to engineering, Blake offered me the lighter weight prototypes. They haven't left since. As soon as production can catch up, I'll add another set under my Nagra CDP and my Pass Aleph 3.

Have fun with them.

Bill

Very cool. I love my old Pass Aleph 3. Don't hear about them much anymore.

I imagine Wilson are pricing to the result and the market...if the market will pay for a given result in that range, and Wilson are able to achieve that result (whether with more expensive materials or less expensive...its the result that matters)...then they are pricing to that level.

With all due respect, sounds like justification of "herd" mentality. If everyone else does it , I can too irrespective of actual manufacturing costs. That's the core of the issue with hi end mentality / pricing strategy and counter to common sense value pricing. Lower unit retail price, more sales, more long term profit. Think Tesla as one example. As you know, they have a waiting list (with deposits) for some of their models.

It seems my question about weight was appropriate. In any case, I assume Wilson has developed a product of a quality and pricing that's aimed at its market. Since that's not mine, and I don't own Wilson speakers, I'll have to stick with the EVPs.

I am simply pointing out it's what the market can bear. They are providing a service which the market has established (7 years prior to their coming on the scene) is priced at this level. If the market is a herd...well, that definitely happens.

As you are an owner and advocate of CenterStage footers, your views here would be read with great interest by me and likely a lot of others. Look forward to reading about it if you decide to try.
Been testing Pedestals under a dCS Vivaldi DAC sitting on a M3X base of my HRS rack. Definitely improves the sound - tastier than without 9 (think butter vs. margarine). Yet to try far less expensive EVP’s...
