Did you're hair blow back like in the old RCA adds?

That must have been an amazing system. One of the local shops just started to carry Wilson. Its been in my list if to dos to go give them a listen but now I think I'm going to have to push it higher up on my list.

What was your impression of the Thor's Hammer? Will it damage walls/break glass?

My System
Re: Wilson Audio Alexia / VTL

I thought that the Thor's Hammer subs did a great job, filling the large room effortlessly with with very articulate bass. The imaging of that particular system (at the Hyatt) left a lot to be desired, I left before the closed demonstration was finished. Maybe a bit rude of me, but I wasn't hearing a reasonable facsimile of a live performance and wanted to move on, as the show was winding down and I still had a lot of rooms left to visit.

Re: Wilson Audio Alexia / VTL

Well folks I heard a demo of the Alexia's with Dan D'augostino amps and preamp. It had the DCS dac with an Apple computer running Roon. This was at a special show in Cleveland Ohio. They did have room treatments at first reflections and all I can tell you is I got so overcome with the quality of music I actually started crying. Not whimpering but actually sobbing. I had to leave the room 2 times so I could regroup. I would sit back down and listen for about 1 minute and then I would feel it building. Then I would start with the stomach gasp. Then the heart would be overcome with emotion. Then the tears. Then it was time to leave. Afterall I was amongst men. I couldn't let them see me balling like a baby. Lol

Sorry for the kind of off topic post. Just reading and wanted to share my experience with Wilson speakers.

It was the most awesome sound I have ever heard by a wide margin. And when you say it all just sounds real, that is how I described it. It didn't sound like speakers.

Not to worry, brother, I have had the same response a number of times when totally blown away by a system's sound. And the Alexia systems I have heard have (when optimally set up) consistently been of that calibre. A sure sign that you are NOT a robot.
