AE Sheung Wan - The Study Room of Emperor Qian Long - 4D experience
I feel obliged to start this thread after a listening session at AE Sheung Wan today. As a happy Wagner user I was just too eager going for a listening session. Although the speakers just arrived at AE showroom far from fully dialed in, I was still shocked by its performance.
Compared to the original Wagner, the low end sounds much fuller thus leads to a more balanced and fuller sound. I don’t feel anything missing without subs but this wasn’t the case with the original Wagner. The new Wagner Silver Signature throws a bigger stage out there due to the increased energy while the top end seems to be the same as the original version.
Although this is more of a test-listen rather than an formal “audition”, I can confidently say that the new Wagner Silver Sig definitely trounced the original one in terms of energy and fullness. In a nutshell, they are more “complete” sounding than the original Wagner therefore raised the bar further as the “entry level” Cessaro.
Do you mean Wagner silver signature don’t need to add 項羽 subwoofer?
If Chris removes Firebird in exchange for a smaller system, I know he must add a pair of subwoofer for augmentation as this guy is used to super system to shock us all. In the end, this is still a mega system like yours - main speakers plus a pair of 項羽 subwoofer!
I'm not saying they don't need subs, on the contrary it should be better if a pair of subs were added. I can imagine the stage would be even bigger, more energy from the Orchestra, better extension on both ends etc...
What I mean is that when I listen to the Wagner silver sig, I don't feel like "oh they sound nice but it would be perfect if there's a touch more bass" (This is actually quite amazing if you take into account that I'm very used to Wagner+ a pair of xiangyu kind of sound). Instead they sound very complete and satisfying so that you forget about "what if" and just want to sit back and enjoy the music.
Yes I was very impressed and think they got huge potential. When Chris is done with the setup and a pair of xiangyu are added, a lot of you guys will be pleasantly surprised by how good they sound.
