TuneTot Bookshelf Speaker
TuneTot is the smallest and least expensive Wilson, but it would be a mistake to see it as an “entry-level” offering.
TuneTot is the latest product from the Wilson Special Applications Engineering™ (WSAE) team. While its name pays homage to the first WSAE product, it is a modern technical tour de force designed to offer the timbral beauty, dynamic nuance, soundstage resolution, and transparency—all the hallmarks of Wilson loudspeakers design culture—but do so in environments which are hostile to all of those qualities.
Special Applications Engineering is a part of the founding DNA of Wilson Audio. The first product to fit that definition was the Wilson Audio Tiny Tot, or WATT®. Long before it became the upper module of the venerable WATT/Puppy® combo (the best-selling over $10k loudspeaker in audio history), Dave Wilson utilized the WATT as a portable location monitor for the series of audiophile-quality records he engineered in the ‘80s and ‘90s.
Its cabinet and driver technology are derived directly from Alexx and Sabrina. Finally, each TuneTot that emerges from Wilson is held to the same rigorous, industry-leading manufacturing tolerances as its larger siblings, ensuring each TuneTot is as technically and musically accurate as the reference prototype. You hear precisely what Daryl Wilson heard in the final design.
We were incredibly impressed by the TuneTot’s instantly, as soon as you plug them in you can hear how special they are. With an incredible mid-range, they give a luxurious and very coherent sound that draws you in from the get go. For a bookshelf speaker, they are astounding.
Wilson’s Special Applications Engineering division introduces the latest member of the TuneTot Ecosystem—The TuneTot Stand. The design team engineered it from the ground up to seamlessly augment TuneTot’s beautiful lines. The primary design objectives were extraordinary stability and ultra-low resonance, and a platform that facilitated the proper alignment of the baffle for the time domain.
A custom-machined, solid billet of X-Material serves as the column riser. It is extremely inert and massive. X-Material, now in its third design iteration, is unique among composites for its remarkable combination of dampening characteristics and rigidity. The column is painted using our WilsonGloss process and is available in a range of colours to match or complement the TuneTot.
The top plate is machined from 6061-T6 aluminium. The plate features bolt holes, which accommodate the hardware for TuneTot’s secure attachment to the Stand. The resulting X Material/aluminium interface is exceptionally stable and critically damped. Transient response and dynamic contrast, mandatory objectives for any Wilson loudspeaker, are preserved and enhanced as a result.
