Elevating Luxury: Upgrading a Hybrid Home Theater w/ XVX & 159 Monos
As part of what is shaping up to be a busy December here at Paragon, we had the privilege of transforming a client's audio dreams into a breathtaking reality.
Back in October 2022, we shared the impressive specifications of a high-end home theater system featuring the Wilson Audio Alexx V with Burmester 911 Amps:

The upgraded system, including the existing 2-channel system we installed earlier, delivers an audio experience that transcends the boundaries of conventional home theater setups. With the Wilson Chronosonic XVX and Burmester 159 Signature Mono Power Amps working in harmony alongside the Burmester 077 preamp, Vivaldi One APEX, Vivaldi Master Clock, and HRS racking, the entire setup orchestrates every note, every whisper, and every explosion with unparalleled precision and depth.
In with the Flagship: Chronosonic XVX
The star of the show is now the flagship Wilson Chronosonic XVX speakers, a true testament to Wilson Audio's relentless pursuit of audio perfection. These speakers are renowned for their exceptional clarity, precision, and immersive soundstage, setting a new benchmark for high-end audio enthusiasts.
The Wilson Audio Alexx V and the Chronosonic XVX represent distinct milestones in high-end audio, each boasting unique features and advancements. While both speakers are designed to deliver exceptional audio quality, there are key differences that set them apart.
Wilson Audio Alexx V vs. Chronosonic XVX
1. Enclosure Design:
- The Alexx V features a carefully engineered modular enclosure designed for optimal resonance control and stability, offering a refined sonic signature.
- The Chronosonic XVX takes these concepts a step further with an even more advanced enclosure design, incorporating additional amounts of proprietary materials and construction techniques to minimize unwanted vibrations and coloration.
2. Driver Technology:
- Both speakers utilize state-of-the-art driver technology, but the XVX integrates advancements such as Wilson Audio's latest generation driver design, meticulously crafted to push the boundaries of dynamic range, speed, and accuracy.
3. Crossover Network:
- The XVX showcases an upgraded crossover network, fine-tuned for seamless integration of drivers and enhanced phase coherence, resulting in an even more coherent and lifelike soundstage than the already impressive Alexx V's performance.
4. Tuning and Adjustability:
- Each model offers an expanded range of tuning options, compared to the rest of the series, allowing audiophiles to tailor the speaker's performance to their specific listening environment.
- However, the Chronosonic XVX has a greater number of adjustable modules which enables an even more personalized and optimized listening experience compared to the Alexx V.
In summary, while the Wilson Audio Alexx V represents an exceptional benchmark in audio engineering, the Chronosonic XVX raises the bar with advanced technologies, superior materials, and increased adjustability, providing audiophiles with a next-level listening experience.
Elevated Sonic Fidelity with Burmester 159 Signature Mono Amps
Powering the Chronosonic XVX are the Burmester 159 Signature Mono Power Amplifiers, seamlessly integrated to complement the speakers' capabilities.
The transition from the Burmester 909 to the Burmester 159 Mono Power Amplifiers introduces a new dimension of sonic fidelity to the audio system. The Burmester 159 amplifiers are renowned for their uncompromising precision and power delivery, ensuring that the Wilson Chronosonic XVX speakers receive the optimal amount of power to unlock their full potential.
This upgrade brings forth a remarkable improvement in dynamic range, allowing the system to handle even the most demanding audio passages with finesse. The 159 Mono Power Amplifiers contribute to a tighter grip on the speakers, enabling a more controlled and articulate presentation of the audio signal.
As a result, the overall sound quality is elevated, delivering a listening experience that is both technically superior and emotionally engaging.
The Complete Home Theater Experience
In addition to the 2-channel system, our client's home theater setup boasts the Trinnov Altitude 16 and Trinnov Amplitude 8M, serving as the brains of the operation for optimal audio processing and distribution. The Kaleidescape Terra 48TB Server and Kaleidescape Strato C 4K Player ensure a seamless and high-fidelity content delivery, while the JL Audio F212 v2 Subs bring in the deep, resonant bass that completes the cinematic atmosphere.
