I think a new spiking and then a re-spiking of an Alexx is a major undertaking. As some of you may know my spikes under my XVX are substandard because of my A-Frame. So there was no way I was going to refuse Wilson's gracious generous offer to re-spike my XVX with the new acoustic diode. I have heard that Wilson has first had knowledge that the acoustic diode does improve the sound of the XVX. However, I am more than pleased with my XVX as currently spiked.

So here is the scenario: "I own an Alexx. I have Stillpoint Ultra 5's under them. A retail 5,400.00 plus tax investment. Next I somehow acquire the new acoustic diode retail cost 3,200.00 to AB compare the two. It took me only an hour or two to determine the tremendous superiority of the Stillpoints.

I too have a hard time believing this.

p.s. I suppose the diodes were sent back to Wilson for a refund or maybe they were demos.

I just got an email from Wilson announcing the new diodes are now being sold to the public. I'm pretty sure I will get these, but not too soon. I'm still recovering from the purchase of Sasha DAW's in May. My dealer will come out and help me install these. My guy Peter does a great job with speaker setup.

Tullman, As far as I know my XVX spiking will occur this Thursday. My MVP 901 is cancelled. Not compatible with my D1100. So I've ordered an extra set of Pedestals for my MVP 851 DVD Player and will switch my AQ Diamond optical digital cable to it and run a WEL digital coaxial to my MVP 881 BR from my D1100. This is the best I can do for the foreseeable future. I am thankful I didn't sell my 881. Who would have guessed an incompatibility between the 901 and the D1100. The 881 is the last BR player that the D1100 or any other MAC DAC can play DVD or BR through the digital coaxial or optical inputs. Only XLR will work.

Best,

Charles
