Wilson Audio Yvette

Floorstanding Loudspeaker

Wilson Audio Yvette

The new Yvette draws from this formidable tradition. But perhaps most importantly, it sources much of its technology directly from the enormous research-and-development reservoir of what is perhaps Wilson’s most prolific era of innovation to date. The Sasha Series 2, the Alexia, and Dave Wilson latest WAMM project have all informed Yvette's development, in some cases, with identical components.

Pricing: Starting at $25,500

Design

Dave Wilson’s WATT/Puppy literally transformed the high-end loudspeaker market in the late eighties, and went on to be the best selling loudspeaker in the over-$10K category in history. The Yvette may also invite comparison to Wilson’s cult favorite, the Sophia. This makes sense. For thousands and thousands of music lovers and audiophiles, Sophia was the first experience they had with Wilson. Sophia was treasured for her unique combination of musicality and accessibility with other traditional Wilson virtues, such as dynamic resolution and soundstaging. She was, above all else, easy-going and eminently lovable.

The new Yvette draws from this rich tradition. But, perhaps more importantly, it derives its core technology directly from the enormous research-and-development reservoir of what is perhaps Wilson’s most prolific era of innovation to date. Wilson’s latest Sasha Series 2, the Alexia, the leading-edge Alexx have all informed the Yvette project, in some cases, with identical components. And like the Alexx, the Yvette was developed alongside Dave Wilson’s new WAMM project.

Drivers

In conjunction with the WAMM project, Wilson Audio recently completed yet another wave of research into tweeter technology and exotic driver materials. They all fell well short of the musicality, natural resolution, and coherence of Wilson’s tweeter. The Yvette employs the MK III version of the Convergent Synergy Tweeter, which is also found in the Sasha Series 2 and the Alexx. The MK III features Wilson’s latest thinking on rear-wave diffraction and ultra-low resonance rear chambers. It mates seamlessly with Wilson’s proprietary midrange driver.

Enclosure Materials

The enclosure is built primarily from two Wilson-developed composites: the third generation of X-Material, an extremely well-damped and inert composite, and S-Material, which was developed for exquisite midrange performance.
