All Set For Our Wilson Audio Open Day Tomorrow!

posted on 2019-04-10 12:33:19 GMT

Hi All,

Just doing a final sound check ahead of our Wilson Audio Open Day tomorrow, been a busy day setting up but everything really is sounding great, certainly looking like it is going to be a busy day with people coming from all over the country and with more people registering for this open day than any before so Wendy has been busy turning 10 loaves of bread into sandwiches, it has been like a military operation in the kitchen 🙂

Really looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow, it’s going to be a good one.

A fine selection of Wilson Speakers ready to rock.

The TuneTot’s are in the upstairs demo room fed by the Melco N100, Chord Electronics Hugo TT2 and M Scaler with Bryston BP17 Pre and a 4B SST3 power amp and the iconic Michell Orbe turntable.

The Sabrina’s are in the Naim Lounge fed by the full 500 System and the Rega Planar 8 Turntable.

And the star of the show, the new Sasha DAW’s are in the Highend Room driven by Audio Research 160M Monos Blocks, a REF 6 Pre, dCS Rossini and Melco N1ZS and the cherry on the top, the VPI Prime Signature, all very nice indeed.

Let the fun begin,

Cheers,

Paul.

dCS & Constellation Audio Open Day -  27th April.

posted on 2019-03-26 20:13:53 GMT

Hi Everyone,

Time for another Open Day, this time 2 of the big guns together, dCS and our newest addition to our portfolio, Constellation Audio.

Hear the dCS Vivaldi Stack + much more!

In all honesty this was going to be a standalone dCS day with a Constellation launch day to follow but as so many people came our Wilson Audio day recently it seemed a shame to use the same electronics when we had something new in the wings so we thought this would be a good idea to give a really different flavour to this open day.

So from dCS we are really pleased to have the epic 4 stack Vivaldi setup, this is arguably the best digital front end in existence so this is a great opportunity to hear how good digital really can be, at around £80,000 this is serious kit, this will be running in our Highend Room with a pair of Wilson’s, I have requested that our friends at Absolute Sounds can lend us a pair of Alexia 2′s for the day so let’s keep everything crossed.

Introducing the new dCS Bartok

It’s not all about Vivaldi though as dCS have just released the Bartok DAC / Streamer / Headphone Amp and Pre-amp, we will have 2 of these running, one in the headphone shop to show how capable it is as a one box solution for your headphone needs and also we will use one running into a hifi system, spec yet to be confirmed.

As well as this we will have Rossini running into our 500 Naim system into a pair of Sonus Faber Amati Tradition speakers, I tried this the other day with a customer and it worked really well and also we will run the dCS Network Bridge into another system, so there is definitely plenty to keep everyone busy there.

Constellation Audio Join HiFi Lounge

So we have decided to bring on Constellation Audio, I really feel they will add something different to what we presently have on offer, at the moment we have bought on the Inspiration series, we went with the 2 x Mono’s and the Pre-amp, this is the entry level for Constellation but on doing my research they get absolutely stunning reviews with plenty of trickle down technology from their far higher end offerings, so basically we will be running a full Vivaldi stack into this setup so I can only imagine it will absolutely sing, especially if we bag a pair of Wilson Alexia’s for the event :-)

You can see more about the range on Constellations Website in the link below -

We will have representatives from dCS and Absolute Sounds here to help run the day as well as refreshments throughout the day.

RSVP Please!

If you would like to come along could you please just fire over a quick e-mail to the below to let me know, thanks -

Many thanks and look forward to seeing everyone on April 27th which will offer a real taste of Highend Audio.

PrimaLuna launch New Range of Tube Products!

posted on 2019-03-25 18:27:35 GMT

Hi Everyone,

Firstly, a massive thanks to everyone who came to our Wilson Audio Open Day on Saturday, most definitely one of our busiest open days, thankfully we opened the gates into the barn area to use for an overspill car park, needless to say that the Sasha DAW room was the star of the day :-)

Anyway, onto PrimaLuna

So this is pretty big news as PrimaLuna are one of our most popular brands, we really do sell a lot of their amplifiers so it is fantastic news that they have just launched a 100% new range of integrated amps, Power amps, Preamps and even a Valve DAC, looking forward to listening to that I have to say.

The new range is called the EvoLution range and it is pretty straight forward, there are 4 new Integrated’s, 4 new Pre’s and 4 new powers and a DAC, so 13 new products in total, all I need to decide now is which ones to put on demo, I really like the look of the smaller chassis 100 series and the most powerful integrated, now the Evo 400, has always been our most popular product so we definitely need one of those.

The great thing with PrimaLuna is they give a very natural presentation, are extremely reliable and are still cost effective solutions to getting a very Highend Sound, in all honesty I get more positive comments from customer’s who have bought PrimaLuna than any other amp brand we sell, people really do love their PrimaLuna’s, and for anyone who thinks Valves are going to be nothing but trouble then think again as PrimaLuna really are one of our most reliable brands, thankfully, as they weigh a tonne so I wouldn’t want them coming back too often. 

We will have a selection of the new range on demo shortly but please see below for all the new products just released -

Cheers,

Paul.
