Wilson Audio WATT Puppy v6.0 Loudspeakers
Introduction The Wilson WATT Puppy has been the reference standard loudspeaker for high-end consumer use for more than 10 years. David Wilson and his design team have taken a fresh look at their most popular loudspeaker with the version 6.0 release. Priced at $20,000 per pair, the new WATT Puppies are greatly improved over the former version, the 5.1s, in that they utilize new cabinet material and have better cabinet construction and design, as well as improved drivers. Version 6.0 WATT Puppies share a similar look with the previous versions, although the way the WATT now sits inside of the Puppy is different. Originally, the WATT was designed to be a portable monitor for location recording. It had no real bass, so Wilson ultimately developed the Puppy to extend the WATT’s low frequency performance to nearly full-range status. Version 6.0 finally fully physically integrates the WATT and the Puppy. Another difference between versions 5.1 and 6.0 ...

EgglestonWorks Rosa Loudspeakers
Introduction The EgglestonWorks Rosa, some may say, is the little brother to the now famous Andra. It is quite similar in design and execution with the major difference being in the driver complement and crossover points. The Rosa relies on the same excellent Esotar tweeter from Dynaudio and uses 4, 6 inch drivers positioned in a vented vertical array. The footprint is deeper than it is narrow and the front baffle has a natural slope to aid in imaging. The enclosure itself is an exercise on how speaker enclosures should be built with rigidity beyond belief and serious internal bracing. The exterior finish is one of absolute beauty with black lacquer covering the front, trapezoidal top and rear of the enclosure, while beveled, polished slabs of black Italian granite adorns the sides of each speaker. The entire ensemble, weighs the $9,900 a pair Rosa's, in at a hefty 210 pounds each. The Sound I spent ...

Paradigm Studio 80 Loudspeakers
Introduction Since their introduction at CES1999, the industry has anxiously awaited the release of Paradigm's Reference line of speakers. The Reference line first started shipments in mid 1999 and has received much recognition since then. The Studio 80's are the second largest in the Reference line, a line that represents Paradigms effort to bridge the gap between high performance and high price. Paradigm, a company that is headquarted in Toronto Canada, has been in existence for the better part of 20 years and has long been regarded as a company that manufactures high value Audio/Video products. Paradigm is equipped with a state of the art facility that has one of the larger anechoic chambers in the industry as well as in house transducer design and manufacturing. Since my initial introduction to the Reference Line, I have looked very much forward to the opportunity to audition these speakers and test Paradigm's claims of value. The Studio 80’s are ...

Energy e:XL-28P Loudspeakers
Introduction The e:XL-28P is the flagship three-way tower speaker system of the e:XL series. This system is priced at a very attractive $1,200.00 per pair, including powered side-firing subwoofers. When I first saw the e:XL-28P, I thought it belonged in a museum, not at a trade show booth. The elegant lines of the enclosure, with its serene Rosewood finish (which is also offered in Black Ash and Northern Light Birch), was a pleasure just to look at. However, we all know appearances can be deceiving. After sitting through a demonstration of the e:XL-28P, it had not only caught eye and ear, it had warmed my heart - a wonderful example of form meeting function. I couldn’t wait to get a pair home to review. Starting from the inside out, the e:XL-28P offers a three-quarter-inch, magnetically shielded aluminum dome tweeter suspended on cloth for superb transient response and low distortion. The midrange section utilizes a six-and-one-half-inch magnetically shielded, injection-molded ...

Revel Ultima Studio Loudspeakers
Introduction By the strained look on the face of the delivery person as he wheeled the Revel Ultima Studio’s into my room, I could tell I was clearly in for a workout setting up these speakers. After he finished chuckling at my suggestion that he lend a hand and help me unpack and position the speakers, the delivery man was off. Before me sat two boxes that I could hardly budge. The unpacking instructions indicate that two strong people should perform the task of unpacking and set-up; ideally, these are instructions that ought to be followed. Revel is the latest addition to the Madrigal Audio Group, owned by Harman International. Revel’s mission when founded in 1996 was to redefine the state of the art in loudspeaker design. With the resources of a NYSE-financed parent company, as well as some of the most advanced loudspeaker driver, cabinet and assembly know-how from sister companies like JBL and ...
