in advance, it's going to be a serious upgrade.
It's not just white, it's a very unique color with some kind of sparkle in it... Not sure what it is! I don't think it's just metal flake. Looks fantastic in person.

The xvx is a stunning speaker in person. A true work of art. I thought the Alexia was a work of art years ago... But this makes the Alexia look basic and boring! Still love mine though

Yes, I don't know what it is, how it is different, but it's gorgeous to look at
and the contrast with the black grills also looks impressive, including the
ones on the sides.

Combined with the other adjustments, I think you and you dealer along with your experience with your Alexxs, should be able to dial in the XVX to your room and listening position.

I'd suggest you get your order in, since I think the first production run will sell quickly.
I'd also suggest you have your dealer get samples of the new WilsonGloss Premium Pearl
colors.
Thank you but this purchase, if it occurs, would take place in about 12-18 months as I mentioned before. I would need a low spike arrangement. I would be a "special needs customer" which I believe after the initial wave of order, Wilson would accommodate. I also must get used to as I mentioned a speaker in that stratospheric price range. I feel very comfortable with my Alexx, like I'm not out of my station in life. I'm not so sure regarding the XVX, even though I can afford it. Sometimes what you can afford and what is right for you don't intersect. We will just have to see but I don't think the rear tweeter will be a problem. The real problem will be to find the courage.

For those concerned with such things, there will be at least 7 US dealer events and multiple Asian and European events in November and December with Chronosonic XVX. All have purchased their demos and so will be on permanent demonstration after the launch events.
