Conversations, Part II
Conversations With Dave
Dave Wilson, Wilson Audio Founder and President, talks about what distinguishes live music from reproduced music, and what aspects of loudspeaker design are most relevant to approaching the sound of live music.
The Violin Bow
In the second video in our series, Dave Wilson had the opportunity to spend time with Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra violinist Wilfried Hedenborg during the orchestra's recent North American tour. In a discussion of the bow's importance to the sound a violinist produces, Hedenborg relates the captivating tale about his attempt to make a copy of a bow borrowed from his teacher and mentor, Ruggiero Ricci.
Dave Wilson talks about new Sophia 3
In conjunction with Peter McGrath's arrival in Germany for the Munich Hi Fi show we are pleased to announce the next video in the Sophia launch series. In this video, Dave Wilson talks about his design goals and philosophies for the new Sophia. He also compares the Series 3 to the Series 2, and speaks about some of the technologies used the new Sophia. We hope you enjoy it.
A Brief History of Cabinet Materials at Wilson Audio
When Dave Wilson began building loudspeakers in his garage in the 1980's, he was, from the beginning, concerned about controlling cabinet resonances. Some of the techniques he used (and later abandoned) are now being heralded by other manufacturers as "cutting edge" technology. Meanwhile, Dave and the Wilson engineers continued to research and develop a range of proprietary composites ideally suited to loudspeaker enclosures.
Conversations, Part V
Can a loudspeaker which measures "perfectly" according to all known parameters still sound less than satisfying? Dave discusses the inherent relativity in the notion of "accuracy", and why all the things we're able to measure may not tell you how well a loudspeaker will reproduce the beauty of live music.
Conversations, Part IV
Audio Fundamentalism. Given the myriad equipment choices available to the audiophile, when does passionate self-identification with a particular brand or technology cross the line from the occasion for free-spirited discourse into something less savory--something detrimental to to the sense of community in the high-end, and, ultimately, to the enjoyment of the music itself?
Conversations, Part III
Wilson Audio Founder and President talks about what "voicing" a loudspeaker means to him.
Conversations, Part I
Wilson Audio Founder and President, Dave Wilson, talks about early influences on his ideas about loudspeaker design, noting in particular the work of Gilbert Briggs of Wharfedale. He also considers the myriad technologies available to loudspeaker designers, and their relative strengths and weaknesses.
