"lifeless and boring"
Yes, what was it with those smaller Wilsons? And reviewers seemed to love them.

Never found ideal amplifier
i have heard wilson speakers with these amplifiers:Vitus audio 50w , Asr emitter 140w, conrad johnson 130w  ,all  audio research setup with AR 600w, krell reference evo one 400w , krell fpb 400w, einshtein 50w, pathos 50w, mark levinson 200w, krell 200w, burmester 300w, accuphase 200w , air tight 50w, airtight 30w , audio note japan ongaku 27w , audio note uk ankoru 70w abd ...Audio note 70w ankoru was better than other but it is not ideal for alex.
I Never heard alexandria in ideal setup but overaly i think alexandria is very dynamic but those setups never convinced me alexandria is fast in transients.I have no idea which amplifier could make alex happy.Alexandria magic was it’s midrange and lower midrange to my ears. Very beautiful sound.

 If i say fast i do not mean zippy sound , i mean a transparent immediate sound.

Paper Tiger
Wilson’s advance reviewers/sellers have said Wilson has gone back to paper (all ScanSpeak) drivers, with silk tweeters.  IMO, this should be good for tone and texture, but it will likely change amp interface.  If I were interested in the Wilsons, and I could not find my present (Marantz MA9-S2) amps, I would try them with the big Burmester amps.  I do not “know” these amps, and I do not “like” them, if only because I’ve not really used them, but based on what I have heard from them I think they would be someplace to start.  The idea is always to move things around until you get the best sound possible from a given combination.  Of course, there is really no substitute for extended listening in your own home.

Nagra HD?
I have no interest on them but the first amp I would try would be the Nagra HD.



Think for yourself, do not be sheep.
