Introducing Yvette (Available in 4k Resolution)With the success of Wilson’s large systems—starting with Dave Wilson’s original WAMM, and followed by the X-1 Grand SLAMM, the Alexandria, and most recently, the Alexx, it may be easy to forget the Wilson that most indelibly left its mark on the industry: the WATT/Puppy. The WATT/Puppy has been long touted as the most commercially successful loudspeaker over $10,000 in the history of audio. From our point of view, however, the WATT/Puppy’s most enduring legacy is its remarkable sound quality and musicality. Back when it was first introduced in the late eighties, the WATT/Puppy irrevocably redefined what was possible from such a small form. Its combination of dynamic and spatial resolution still represent worthy aspirational benchmarks today.
The new Yvette draws from this formidable tradition. But perhaps most importantly, it sources much of its technology directly from the enormous research-and-development reservoir of what is perhaps Wilson’s most prolific era of innovation to date. The Sasha Series 2, the Alexia, and Dave Wilson latest WAMM project have all informed Yvette's development , in some cases, with identical components.
This video is an introduction to Wilson Audio’s most technically advanced single-enclosure, compact loudspeaker in its storied history.
Wilson is very excited to introduce its fifth all-new loudspeaker in as many years: The Yvette.
As we launch our newest loudspeaker, the natural questions seem to be within the context of Wilson’s past models. This is understandable. Dave Wilson’s WATT/Puppy literally transformed the high-end loudspeaker market in the late eighties, and went on to be the best selling loudspeaker in the over-$10K category in history. The Yvette may also invite comparison to Wilson’s cult favorite, the Sophia. Again, this makes sense. For thousands and thousands of music lovers and audiophiles, Sophia was the first experience they had with Wilson. Sophia was treasured for her unique combination of musicality and accessibility with other traditional Wilson virtues, such as dynamic resolution and soundstaging. She was, above all else, easy-going and eminently lovable.
The new Yvette draws from this rich tradition. But, perhaps more importantly, it derives its core technology directly from the enormous research-and-development reservoir of what is perhaps Wilson’s most prolific era of innovation to date. Wilson’s latest Sasha Series 2, the Alexia, the leading-edge Alexx have all informed the Yvette project, in some cases, with identical components. And like the Alexx, the Yvette was developed alongside Dave Wilson’s new WAMM project.
Yvette is the most advanced and musically refined single-enclosure loudspeaker in Wilson’s history.
