Introducing Chronosonic XVX
This new Wilson Audio loudspeaker, the Chronosonic XVX, is Daryl Wilson’s newest creation, his flagship…
Over the course of five years Daryl Wilson completed design work on the Sabrina, the Alexia Series 2, and the Yvette. Most significantly, he began work on a MAXX replacement—the ALEXX—which he developed alongside his father’s WAMM. Father and son provided feedback on each other’s designs. As Daryl followed his father’s progress with the WAMM, the seeds for his own flagship were planted.
When the time was right, Daryl began design work for his own statement loudspeaker. In 2018, having completed work on the Sasha DAW, he knew it was time to push his and his engineering team’s skills, passion, and expertise to further limits and extremes—just as his father had with the WAMM. From this inchoate desire, he began formulating ideas for his new flagship loudspeaker. Ideas that, in turn, launched an unprecedented wave of research and innovation within his design, engineering team, and manufacturing teams. The fruits this intensity have now culminated in a new category of loudspeaker, one that sits comfortably alongside his father’s masterpiece.
The format of the flagship loudspeaker fits Daryl Wilson’s attitudes and convictions perfectly. He is extraordinarily compromise-adverse. Removing any constraints of price or practicality within the design equation felt liberating to Daryl. If he had one advantage his father lacked, it was the WAMM itself. Some of the technology developed for the WAMM now resides in the Chronosonic XVX in a simpler form. More than in any other previous loudspeaker, Wilson will introduce more technology, features, and manufacturing processes in the Chronosonic XVX.
Short of the WAMM itself, no other loudspeaker reproduces music as realistically or communicates the emotional power of the artists so eloquently.
