Wolf Audio Systems Alpha 3 SX Server
The Alpha 3 SX: Brought to you by the minds behind Wolf, Stillpoints and eXemplar Audio, we have taken our most powerful Alpha 3 and incorporated technologies – some established, some so new that we can’t disclose them yet, and created a system that sets a new bar of performance for digital audio. The SX is best summed up by one of our favorite beta-testers on his Reference Level system: “Holy Sh!t!”
The Alpha 3SX is a big step forward. The Alpha 3 was already our most capable Alpha, a Stereophile A+ Recommended Component and an indispensable source for mission-critical audio sessions. The Alpha 3 SX is quieter, more natural, and better sounding than anything you are listening to now.
Wolf Audio Systems constantly assesses new technologies and materials in the technical and sonic advancement of its products. The Alpha 3 is the favored choice of many high-end manufacturers displaying their own products at Hi-Fi shows here and abroad. The Alpha 3 SX server represents the latest performance upgrades resulting from our work with Stillpoints and eXemplar Audio. The objective of the SX project was to make improvements in three key areas: micro-vibration control, electrical grounding, and RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) suppression.
All the right places…
Utilizing Stillpoints patented vibration isolation technology, the SX package isolates the power supply and critical components employing Stillpoints circuit-board Isolators. The increase in clarity, dynamics, focus of image and broadening of the sound stage made themselves known immediately. The sonic benefits are indeed palpable. Wolf Audio Systems has taken the time and effort to deploy Stillpoints’ materials precisely in areas where a little bit of Stillpoints technology goes a long way.
Wolf has deployed Stillpoints’ ERS material exactly in areas where limited amounts of the ERS material works exceedingly well. The ERS material gives the Alpha 3 SX the perfect balance of naturalness, air, dynamics, transparency and clarity while limiting the noise from Radio Frequency Interference that’s automatically generated in every digital circuit.
High power and Total Control
eXemplar Audio’s ability to identity and suppress RFI penetrating the Wolf Alpha 3 and exiting the unit via the AC mains results in lower noise floor throughout an entire Hi-Fi system and creates an increase in low-level information retrieval, micro dynamics, soundstage, stereo imaging — sharpness and depth. In summary the SX package induces longer listening at lower volumes with even greater satisfaction. One giant step for Digital Audio.
