Wilson WP7 versus X1 - Gen III and Maxx II's

I am not interested in other speaker manufactures.

I have an opportunity to upgrade to X1 Gen III for way less than Maxx II's used (if they were even available). My only concern is will I lose anything that the WP7's do so amazingly well? I know setup of the X-1's will be even more critcal.

The other option to consider is to buy a used pair of Maxx l's which go for $15-$20K and do the Maxx ll upgrade which can be done in the field. I believe it costs ~$5500
Not sure what you mean by Lamm. I have the ML 2.1 driving my huge X-2's. At 18 wpc I assure you that there is plenty of headroom. It is the most musical amp that I have ever owned.
Trust Oneobgyn, your room is definitely too small for the Maxx's or X-1's. The WP7's too seem sacrificed there: how you can ever consider a bigger speaker ? Are you just looking for resonances and wall shacking ? Sorry but your plan seems really absurd to me.
Oneobgyn: I have followed your system for years but I owned Lamm M1.1's prior and they are amazing liquid in the mid's but they were dark and closed in compared to the VTL S400 and the Theta Citadel. The lamms sacrificed low low bass that the Citadel's have in spades.. I also owned Lamm M2.1's and if I did Lamm again I would definitely do the M2.2's. (Lamm ML2.1 are out of my range or I would rather spend that money elsewhere) I have an aversion to full tubes because of my propensity to listen to trance/techno/hiphop which really stress out a system like a good orchestral movement. Plus with my Theta's it's less than 20minutes to full warm due to the standby function.. Everything is a little compromise like a relationship, and I have choosen Theta. Plus the Lamm heated up my room 10 degrees in less than 5 minutes and caused my house AC to run no stop in our Phoenix Summers... so AC redesign was not an possibility.

Luke72: I've listened to Maxx II's in a room my size and no problems.. it's all about setup (nearfield which some of my friends find uncomfortable but reduces room interaction problems and besides Wilson cabinets are already designed to minimize side wall interactions) plus if you realized how much LOW LOW bass damping I have.. 4 of the Realtrap Mondotraps, you would realize nothing rattles and the bass attack and decay is outstanding! I have used a Tact for positioning treatments and I only have one 4db Bass spike that's it... I'm pretty ruler flat without using any Tact EQ'ing...

So thanks for the input Darren and Oneobgyn! I think my question is answered... I'll buy some more music and wine and wait for Maxx's used (someday) Or buy a bigger house for a dedicated listening room ;-)

The thread is dead...Thanks!
