Wilson Audio WAMM Master Chronosonic

Finally, I was asked several questions by audiophiles on the QT about the WAMM Master Chronosonic, and we all get it wrong. It’s not bright, not dull, doesn’t have a character, it is just music, red in tooth and claw, or subtle and delightful.

I’m normally on the loquacious side. Give me half a minute of dead air in a room and I’ll fill it. I may not fill it with Shakespearean prose, but I will chatter and gossip and talk, and talk. Not this time. I was truly humbled in front of these masterpieces, and several months later, I’m still processing the experience.

Sadly, this isn’t the kind of loudspeaker many of us will hear in the wild. They won’t be at many shows, they won’t be doing much of a dealer tour, and you probably need to be one of the handful who would be in the market for a loudspeaker of this magnitude to even experience one, unless you expend much of your Editor magic powers. But, if you can, you will have the same humbling musical experience.

This is as real as it gets!
