Wilson Audio, the biggest dog in the biz, not only had dozens of speakers all over the show, but also put on their own little demo with their $27,900 WATT/Puppy 8s and Audio Research equipment. The demo consisted of a handful of cuts showing off the various aspects of the WATT/Puppy abilities, from depth and space to bass and bass and more bass. The last custom recording of a double string bass was really fun and made for an excellent demo piece. Gasps and fluttering hearts filled the room. Other cuts included orchestral, jazz and opera.
Overall, the Wilson experience was just like a theme park ride. Ups and downs and thrills a minute. Even a joke or two. Dave Wilson knows how to put on a good show and speak a friendly language to the audio hobbyists. As for sound, despite not being able to play any personal tracks, the Wilson room embodied that famous Wilson character more than any other Wilson room, as it should be. Asking experienced audiophiles what they thought sounded the best, many said, "Wilson, Wilson, Wilson!"
People waiting for the Wilson ride. Shows start every 15-20 minutes.
