Focal v Wilson

how would folks that have heard both compare a Focal Alto Utopia BE to a Wilson Watt/Puppy 7?



Had WP7s for years and loved them. Replaced them with the original Sashas. 

The Sashas were a real upgrade, more even sounding and produced a big speaker sound.  They are available used at good prices.  Now have Yvettes, also an excellent speaker. They have just been superseded by the new Watt-Puppy, a clever marketing move for Wilson.  Yvettes should be coming on the market used at a good price.  Good listening.

The combination of Focal Utopias and Boulder amplification has synergy made in heaven. Boulder use Grande Utopias in their listening room, so it's not unexpected. 

As for Wilsons...Wilson + Soul = Focal Utopias

You need to use your own ears to determine this. For example, we used REW and all these sophisticated measurements to make a pair of subs sound much worse than when I did it with my ears. 

I have Wilson SabrinaX and had planned to buy Bowers 803d4 but was blown away by the Wilson/McIntosh/Transparent Audio cable combo. It is shocking how good it can sound. But that’s to my ear and in my room. I could care less about any measurements at this point because you follow the Wilson setup protocol which is all based on what you actually hear. Stunning, absolutely stunning.
