$1.1 billion spent by web giant - but why? Here's all you need to know
Wilson Audio Alexandria XLF speakers
On a muggy May afternoon, we step into the basement room of London-based hi-fi specialist KJ West One and find ourselves in audiophile heaven. We're here to be treated to a demo of the Wilson Audio Alexandria XLF speakers. It's the first time they've been demonstrated in Europe, but why are we so excited? It's mainly because Wilson Audio describes its speakers as the "world's best" and it's slapped on a price tag to match. This is a pair of speakers that costs £200,000.
