    Re: alexia V

    I owned the first version of the Alexia’s. Enjoyed them for 5 years. Sold them to a friend that’s enjoying them immensely with ARC power. Look forward to listening to the Alexia Vs.

    No plans to change my Alexia's but if I did I would look hard at MBL for my needs. Main focus is HT.

    Price has gone up from 57k up to 67k - 79k. When will this constant price increase stop?

    I wish we had the answer to that question.

    Alexia 2 Pricing - $58K - $70K (With Acoustic Diodes - $61K - $73K which come on Alexia V)
    Alexia V Pricing - $67.5K - $79K

    The introduction of Alexia 2 was almost 6 years ago, well before the multiple supply chain raw material price increases that began in 2020 and to some degree have not fully subsided today. We see scheduled ongoing price increases from vendors, as many as 4 in 2022 for some. Freight increases alone, in and out, are brutal. While we would prefer to have the same price as Alexia 2, our desire to bring Alexia V along the technology path of Chronosonic XVX and Alexx V added to these ongoing vendor increases made that impossible.

    While recognizing that inflation may result in no good choices, to me, a higher price on a superior replacement product is a lot more palatable than a price increase on an old model.

    very well said!
    from 61 to 67 is 10% only. lots of others went up more than this without any improvement.

    that said in europe the price went up from 74 to 92k (standard colors), that is more than 20% increase for no other reason than greed and puts me out of interest while i was sure to get a pair. just not willing to play that game.

    great review btw. wilson knows how to do the job more than just right.

    I'm guessing that much of the increase you're seeing in Europe is due to currency effects due to a very strong US dollar vs. the Euro.

    The Alexia V will be the main event when Paragon has the first of its 5 Fall music events on the 6th of October. That will be followed by another October event, two in November and the last in December. Nice to have these to look forward to after a couole of years of Covid.

    I am very happy with my Alexia 2. When I am ready for the speaker upgrade, I think I will first consider the bigger model, Alexx V or even a pair of used Alexx.
