When it came time to upgrade the Sabrina, Daryl and his team faced a conundrum: how could they upgrade a loudspeaker already loved for its supreme musicality? His first goal was to preserve Sabrina’s affability and intrinsic listenability. When looking for ways to improve Sabrina, Daryl drew directly from his last project, the Chronosonic XVX. With those tools in hand, Daryl evolved an already great platform into a loudspeaker with even greater musicality—while at the same time, improving its transient speed, resolution, intimacy, and transparency.Introducing the all-new SabrinaX.
The Chronosonic XVX® is Wilson Audio’s most ambitious and complex production loudspeaker to date. Daryl Wilson and his team of designers and engineers borrowed some of its technology from the limited-edition WAMM Master Chronosonic®, itself the beneficiary of the most prolonged and intense research-and-development cycle in history of the company. Much of the technology and many of the features of theXVX, however, are new and specific to that model. Indeed, Wilson introduced more new performance and ergonomic elements in the XVX than during any other design effort.
Fresh on the XVX project’s heels, Daryl and his team turned their attention to Wilson’s smallest floor-stander. The SabrinaX is a ground-up rethinking of the Sabrina®, the universally loved, small, floor-standing loudspeaker from Wilson Audio. Like the original Sabrina, the new X-version is a rare combination of traditional Wilson hallmark attributes such as bass authority, dynamic resolution, midrange beauty and integrity, and a sense of inherent musical “rightness.” Wilson’s goal was to design a loudspeaker that could stand alongside much larger systems. Like its flagship sibling, the Chronosonic XVX, SabrinaX offers a level of dynamic contrast and harmonic expression that is the defining character of Wilson Audio loudspeakers.
X-Material has long been the cornerstone of Wilson’s composite technology. In its third iteration, X-Material remains unbeatable for its rigidity, inertness, intrinsic damping, and extreme hardness. For this reason, Wilson Audio’s engineers deploy X-Material in several different applications throughout Wilson’s model lineup. The original Sabrina utilized X-Material only in its baffle and lower spike plate. Now, the SabrinaX’s outer enclosure is constructed entirely from X-Material. The SabrinaX cabinet comes that much closer to the near-silent ideal Wilson has relentlessly pursued for decades. The music emerges through SabrinaX from a blacker background. Bass transients and overall clarity are vastly improved. Listeners will hear superior “silence between the notes,” which, among other factors, enhances SabrinaX’s rhythmic timing and pace. SabrinaX’s new bracing system augments all the above qualities by further reducing cabinet-born resonances. Like all modern Wilson loudspeakers, the engineers meticulously utilized laser vibrometry in an exhaustive exploration of the best cabinet geometries.
Tweeter from the XVX
The tweeter chosen for SabrinaX is the Convergent Synergy MK5, which Daryl and the team developed initially for the limited-edition WAMM Master Chronosonic. The MK5 later became an integral part of the Chronosonic XVX’s design. The Wilson tweeter combines ultra-low distortion, exquisite micro and macro contrast, and ultra-high resolution, all of which are accompanied by a sense of ease, accessibility, and supreme musicality. Technically and musically, the MK5 is—by a comfortable margin—the most honest and engaging tweeter we’ve experienced to date.
The 5.75-inch midrange driver is remarkably smooth throughout its bandwidth (which extends flat to 2 kHz, facilitating the elevated crossover point to the tweeter). Midrange honesty, resolution, and beauty are the paramount qualities of all Wilson loudspeakers, and SabrinaX’s midrange is no exception. The crossover points allow the driver to perform optimally within the “sweet spot” of its range.
Woofer from the Sasha DAW™
The new 8-inch woofer designed and developed for the Sasha DAW’s bass module now finds a home in the SabrinaX. This state-of-the-art driver
is installed into an all-new, exceptionally inert bass cabinet, which provides the perfect platform for the driver’s intrinsically excellent dynamic resolution and transient performance. Together, these elements contribute to a rich and yet ultra-fast midbass, which is, in turn, supported by an authoritative bass foundation. SabrinaX’s bass articulation, transient speed, and the bottom-octave extension will demolish any preconceptions about the bass quality and accuracy that such a small loudspeaker can produce.
Unlike the plastic items found in many high-end loudspeakers, Wilson ports have always been heroic. We machine this critical element from a solid billet of 6061-T6 aluminum. Over the years, we’ve refined our port shapes for better performance. For the SabrinaX, a new geometry effectively reduces already low port noise.
The new model utilizes the same Wilson-designed and -manufactured binding post as the XVX. It is easier to tighten by hand, and also features a banana-plug option. This unique Wilson Audio connector resets the bar for reliability and sonic integrity within high-current connections.
The SabrinaX uses the same spike/diode assembly found in the Chronosonic XVX, which increases the mechanical impedance path and improves vibration “draining.” The larger diode also enhances the physical presence and beauty of the design.
The first Wilson loudspeaker to benefit from Wilson’s recent integration of capacitor design and manufacturer into its factory in Provo, Utah, was the Chronosonic XVX. Led by engineer Vern Credille, the design team developed a proprietary multi-wound capacitor specifically for the XVX, which the engineers dubbed AudioCapXWA. The team took a similar approach with Wilson’s smallest floor-stander. Vern designed a custom version of the Wilson AudioCapX explicitly for SabrinaX’s crossover. The new capacitor technology significantly lowers the noise floor to even greater extremes, allowing the listener to hear more detail and resolution. As is true for all Wilson loudspeakers, Wilson’s craftspeople painstakingly hand-assemble SabrinaX’s crossover. Wilson leads the industry for the quality of its crossover execution and ultra-rigorous manufacturing tolerances. The AudioCapX advances Wilson’s ability on this front as well.

1. FINE-TUNE YOUR SYSTEM USING THE WILSON AUDIO SETUP PROCEDURE
A useful video if your local authorized dealer didn’t set-up your Wilson Audio Speakers. This video tutorial provides a step-by-step process enabling the system to perform as well as the speakers, components, and room allow. Here is the link to our official WASP video tutorial:
2. KEEP YOUR SPEAKER CONTACTS CLEAN AND SEATED PROPERLY
Use a micro-abrasive jewelry cloth to clean the contacts on both your speaker cables and binding posts. Research shows that a cleaner signal path yields better sonic results. The sound also improves when the binding posts make complete contact with the lugs.
3. CHANGE THE RESISTORS ON YOUR LOUDSPEAKER ANNUALLY
Wilson Audio likens changing the resistors in your loudspeakers to a tune-up for your automobile. Extended listening sessions with elevated SPLs can degrade the performance of your resistors over time. Depending on how loud and often you listen to your speakers, or if you notice a degradation in the output of one or more drivers, we recommend changing the resistors approximately once a year or when needed. You can contact us for official Wilson Audio Parts & Accessoroies and find replacement resistors for your Wilson Audio speaker.
4. DISTANCE YOUR ELECTRONICS AND CABLES FROM HIGH-FREQUENCY TRANSMITTERS
We have found that having your components near a high-frequency transmitter (i.e. Wi-Fi router, cellphone, etc.) can degrade the signal quality in electronics and cables. The results are a loss in sonic fidelity.
5. LEVEL YOUR LOUDSPEAKER
Level your loudspeaker to get better performance. You can do this by placing a bubble level on one of the speaker's flat surfaces and adjusting the spike assemblies until level. Here is the link to our official Wilson Audio speaker leveling video tutorial:
