AE Theatre at Sheung Wan (Cessaro 新乾隆）
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.
