Wilson Audio Duette Series 2 with stand – £24999

Description

With traditional loudspeaker designs, near-boundary placements wreak havoc on the performance characteristics audiophiles most prize. The soundstage collapses, dynamics are compromised, and a smooth, linear frequency response becomes a distant memory.

The original Duette was designed to overcome these limitations, while still offering a freestanding performance option. With the Series 2 Duette, we decided to forgo the inevitable compromises inherent in that approach, and concentrate on creating a loudspeaker designed solely for near boundary situations, which nevertheless boast the same dynamics, soundstage width and depth, and harmonic beauty of our larger, floorstanding loudspeakers.
