WAMM Master Chronosonic loudspeaker – yours for a cool £700K
Audiophiles with the best part of three-quarters of a million pounds to spare may be tempted to splash out on Wilson Audio founder Dave Wilson’s magnum opus – the WAMM Master Chronosonic.
Named after Wilson Audio’s first commercial loudspeaker, the legendary WAMM, introduced in 1982, the WAMM Master Chronosonic is the result of five years of research led by Dave Wilson himself.
The unit is hand built to order, with construction strictly limited to 70 pairs. Each pair takes 10 weeks to build and is finished in Wilson Audio’s automotive-class paint facility in Utah to individual customers’ specific colour requirements.
The price of owning a pair of these extraordinary speakers in the UK is £700,000.
- Each WAMM Master Chronosonic speaker stands over two metres tall and sports nine drive units
- MTM (Midrange-Tweeter-Midrange) section incorporates five drivers in individually adjustable modules – the Wilson Convergent Synergy Tweeter is flanked vertically by four midrange units, two for upper midrange and two for lower midrange
- Additional rear-firing high frequency and midrange drive units enhance spatial retrieval and soundstage resolution
- Bass section features 10in and 12in drivers, configurable to fire forwards or backwards as best suits the customer’s listening room
- Enclosures made from proprietary composites called X-material, S-material and W-material, delivering absolute vibration resistance and impeccable acoustic performance, plus aerospace-grade aluminium for the MTM module support gantry
- Adjustability in the time domain is precise down to five millionths of a second for any installation
Conclusion: “The net result is an astonishingly crisp, clear and dynamic sounding loudspeaker, capable of immense sonic scale and consummate verisimilitude. These awesome American transducers deliver a sound so thrillingly realistic, you’ll swear your favourite musicians have dropped by for a private performance.”
