    Re: Announcing Sabrina

    I like how they handled the demo at the Paragon event. For the first four tracks the Sabrinas were powered by a ~$2300 Parasound integrated amp. I don't remember anyone having an issue with the SQ at all. Then for each demo session they swapped out the Parsound unit for Doshi amps and pre-amp. They started with the same last song played thru the integrated. Wow, a noticeable improvement. Peter McGrath then continued to play a few more tracks with the Doshi gear showing its Sabrina's capabilities.

    VERY cool! These speakers have such a nice footprint for those with a small room.

    Re: Announcing Sabrina

    Man.. I may have said it here already, but I'm going to say it again - I think the Sabrina's are going to be THE Wilsons to buy.

    For starters, it's a compact tower that should be able to blend well in most real-world listening rooms. That alone is a plus. Then we have that badass driver compliment. A meaty sounding soft dome, one of the best 5" woofers ever made (in my opinion), complete with a hefty 8" woofer that'll most likely feature the classic 60Hz - 80Hz 'Wilson Bump'. Then there's the price. While they are far from what I'd call 'affordable', the good news is that they are within reach of people whose net worth doesn't tally into the millions.

    Now if only the company would do away with the Sophia and in it's stead, release a modernized version of the Watt Puppy 5.1. I'm getting worked up just thinking about it...

    The Sophia 5 will be released later this year, and the Sasha Series 2 is the modernized version of the Watt Puppy 5.1.
