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?

@highend666 The speaker I heard was the Alexx V, in most ways not related to the Wilson Alexandria Series 2...not Alexx Series 2. Admittedly, their naming can be confusing sometimes. Yes, the Alexx V is a way superior sounding speaker to that old model with the horrible Focal tweeter. Anyone who owns that old model would do well to dump it and get the just replaced Alexx, or if funds allow, the new Alexx V. Like you state, big changes- and a big upgrade.
The question is how much better is the Alexx V than the previous model. Sonically is it worth the difference?
@carey1110   Your question is one that everyone has to answer for themselves. If money is no issue, then yes, they are definitely worth the difference...:0)
Ok just spent some time A B ing the Alexx and the Alexx V and I will say, to me yes it’s worth the difference in price. Next to each other the differences were very obvious. The first thing that caught my attention in the Alexx V was the clarity without irritation.  The upper frequencies while quite extended were ultra smooth. No sibilants or irritants at all. The midrange presented with a complete lack of glare. I never even noticed any glare on the Alexx 1 till I heard the V. Bass seems much deeper and more articulate than the older model. The Alexx V seemed more relaxed and out of the way of the music. Crazy Dynamics. Not sure if this is because the V is more efficient or because it is an easier load to drive,  maybe both. Very pleasant experience.. However had I not had them side by side I could easily live with the original Alexx which is still and always will be a great speaker. However now that I know; the Alexx V with haunt me till I own it.
