New Wilson Shasha W/P Series 2

Hey Wilson Shasha W/P fans, just picked up a news blip off The Audio Beat web site that a series 2 version of the Sasha will be shipping next month. Here the link:

Well, it looks like a whole bunch of obsolete and useless Wilson Sasha series 1 speakers will be listed for sale on A'gon. Let me be the first to offer $100 for a used pair of Sasha speakers (9 out of 10) condition. Seller to pay shipping.

:) Just kidding. Hope you guys get your investment back.

In the WP series to me the best until now is the Sasha WP, and then the 5.1 system

You don't know what you are talking about. While there may not be an official trade in program I think most dealers work with their clients. My dealer gave me a great trade when I upgraded from the w/p 8 to the Sasha w/p. I had a little depreciation on the 8s but nothing like 50%.

Why is it that the ignorant post with such authority?

Exactly what is it you're claiming I don't know? Dealer trade in's have nothing to do with Wilson's business model. A Wilson Audio backed upgrade or trade in policy would be news to me.

I'm glad your dealer took care of you none the less.
You ever think that Wilson's policy is to work through the dealer in helping their clients upgrade?

Your statement of this massive depreciation hit was not my experience and not the experience of other Wilson owners I know. My point is I suspect you have no experience with upgrading through the Wilson. Your statement is backed by a review of the items listed on Audiogon. You don't know what you are talking about on this subject.

Explain what you mean by "upgrading through Wilson"? If you mean that there is enough profit margin for dealers to offer generous trade in's, well that can vary from dealer to dealer and how far up the chain the customer is going. But that has nothing to do with Wilson Audio as, I think, you suggest.

My statement of a massive depreciation hit is a fact. Look as the asking price four Sasha 1's listed right now. A dealer might take a bit of a loss on the trade, but that goes back to the profit margin. Which, once again, doesn't have anything to do with Wilson Audio, other than their pricing. The fact that a dealer might absorb some of the depreciation to make a sale, which is a dealer choice and has nothing to do with Wilson Audio, doesn't mean the massive depreciation didn't take place. The Sasha 1 is probably now worth 16-17k. That's pretty massive in my book. And just wait until the reviews of the Sasha 2 come out and say how much better the new tweeter is.

I really don't have a clue what you're talking about. Your dealer's conduct, which I'm glad you're happy with, has nothing to do with my comments about Wilson Audio.
