A good friend, has been struggling with his W/P 8 ever since he upgraded them from the 7. I must say that to my ears as well, the 7 sounded much better. The funny thing is that he is now considering the Sasha. That is how I got to read Wilson spin. Do not get me wrong, he is an intelligent guy and all, but when it comes to his Wilson, he is a fanatic cult follower. A rational thinker, would have a hard time considering another upgrade on a product he already got screwed on once. But not a Wilson believer. He will order the new speakers sight unseen. In the process, he will lose tens of thousands of $s and will have no real guaranty that it will be any better. In fact, as history repeats itself, and based on the BS I read on their site, it's a likely scenario.
