Who's this lurking in the corner of the room? No, it's not a baddie from a 1970s episode of Doctor Who, it's Yvette, the latest speaker from Wilson Audio.
Yvette takes some of the same technology as found in Wilson Audio's top-end Alexx and Alexia speakers and packs it into a more compact and more affordable package. If £28,880 a pair can ever be called affordable, that is.
It's the most advanced and musically-refined single-enclosure speaker Wilson Audio has ever produced. The enclosure is made from extremely well-damped and inert composites that Wilson Audio calls X-Material and S-Material. This has been extensively braced and precisely shaped for fully optimised alignment of the drive units, giving "unparalleled time coherence for single-enclosure design".
Or so Wilson claims. We'll have to see when we get it in our test rooms.
Inside the enclosure are three new-generation Wilson drive units: a 10in bass driver, 7in midrange driver and the latest MkII version of the Wilson Convergent Synergy Tweeter.
