I just finished ordering a set in Galaxy Gray. Didn't want to spend the upgrade price on Titan Red and wanted something different than the fingerprint and dust magnet black. Hated silver and white.



Now for the longest 4 weeks in my life.

Devialet 200 right now, have the option to add a 200 companion unit to get to 400 a side dual mono if I feel like expanding some day.

I've heard a lot about them and their SAM profiles. Do they have one for the Sabrina?

Hmm not sure what that's supposed to mean! I'm not buying a devialet. But I am fascinated by the technology.

These speakers are on my short list to audition. I know rooms vary, but in general, how far away do they need to be from the rear wall? I doubt my wife would want them sitting way out in the room, so I figure 18" is about as far as I can get away with.

They are a smaller speaker and I think Wilson did design them to use that back wall a little. Of course each room is different, here is the manual.

http://www.wilsonaudio.com/pdf/manua...al-sabrina.pdf

After your wife watches the dealer spend 4 hours moving the speaker 1/2 inch at time to get the perfect sound she might feel guilty about wanting to move their placement.



Or maybe not.

If you get an in home demo, they dealer will set them up where they need to be and if she's not happy with the placement no matter how friggin' awesome they sound I guess you have to look at another speaker.
