Dream Machines: Wilson Audio – Sasha DAW
You’ll need to pay a pretty penny for the world’s most accomplished loudspeakers…
The Sasha DAW is hand-built in Utah, USA and finished in Wilson Audio’s automotive-class paint facility. The speakers trace their lineage back to the legendary WATT/Puppy – the best-selling loudspeaker above $10,000 in the history of audio. Oh and ‘DAW’? It stands for ‘David Andrew Wilson’, Wilson Audio’s founder, who passed away earlier this year.
The speakers use enclosures built from Wilson Audio’s proprietary, ultra-vibration-resistant ‘X-material’ and ‘S-material’ composites while the adjustable module alignment enables precise time domain regulation for optimum accuracy and coherence.
All of this adds up to amazing levels of sonic detail, dynamic range, transient speed and soundstage focus.
1. Modular – The modular design incorporates separate upper (midrange/treble) and lower (bass) enclosures
2. Chronosonic – The upper enclosure features the same 17.8cm midrange driver and 2.54cm tweeter as are featured in the £700,000-per-pair WAMM Master Chronosonic loudspeaker
3. Bass Drivers – The lower enclosure sports two redesigned 20.3cm bass drivers
