Wilson Alexx V

The new Alexx V is to be released at the end of this month 3/29/21.  Any thoughts or predictions on how this one will compare to the current one.  I know no one will know for sure until it’s out.  They say it’s based off the XVX.  I believe this one may rival the XLF in a smaller package. New tweeter, midrange and increase in bass enclosure size and the new Xcaps.  More efficient?  Any thoughts?

I had the pleasure of hearing the new Alexx V today. It is a speaker that anyone contemplating a speaker in its price range should definitely put on their short list. The Alexx V clearly needs a large room and plenty of space to breath, BUT if you have this room, I can think of few speakers that can compete with it. Far more resolving and impressive sounding than any prior Wilson I have heard, including the XLF.
Carey1110 -  agree with your comments.  A lot of new development has gone into making it (new V material, capacitors, mid range, tweeter). I haven't heard it yet..  I do like the open sides too. It appears that Michael Fremer has leap frogged over the Alexx and bought the XVX!   
Daveyf-  how would you say the sound stage and tonal balance is compared to the XLF?  Did you like it better than the older Alexx?What electronics did you listen with. 
Newton- yes Fremer did just that. However I don’t think the Alexx V was available when he made that jump.  I’m sure the XVX is incredible as it should be. 
@carey1110 The tonal balance and sound stage was considerably larger and more precise than what i remember hearing from the XLF. I also was impressed with the overall scale produced, but this had to do with the enormous room which I heard the demo in.Electronics were a pair of D’Ag mono’s and the HD preamp, along with a Nagra DAC and streamer. I was very impressed when i heard the old Alexx, but this new model takes it up a notch, although I think for a major price difference...not so sure I would spring for the difference...unless the coin was unimportant.
So are you saying the Alexx V is better but not that much better the the original Alexx?
