We are delighted to announce the latest Geometry Series review. This excellent Vertex review comes courtesy Image HIFI and much esteemed German journalist Michael Vrzal. We would like to thank everyone at Image HIFI and in particular Michael Vrzal, who has taken time to understand the intricacies, science and technology behind the product
The Vertex is the latest standmount design in the Wilson Benesch portfolio. Taking design clues from the ground breaking Trinity as well as the highly successful Arc. The Vertex stakes its claim at the forefront of the price performance league as Michael Vrzal comments,
“In rooms less that 20-square meters… the Vertex is solo in her element… the latest high-tech products from Sheffield set the standard for purity and fineness of music playback.”

Like all its siblings the design benefits from Tactic II advanced drive unit technology and the radical WB-Semisphere Tweeter. Arguably the design represents the most advanced standmount design available in it’s price point. As Michael Vrzal comments, this is largely due to the advances that the company has made with the Tactic-II and Semisphere drive units,
“of Craig Milnes, Michael Vrzal wrote: With his work he tries to come to this ideal as closely as possible. His designs no longer rely on modified, pre-assembled components from conventional external suppliers, this minimises the necessity of external corrections on electrical components and even makes it completely superfluous.”

Wilson Benesch is very proud to be seen to be flying the flag for British loudspeaker design and especially proud to have garnered such enthusiasm for this new standmount design. In truth, Wilson Benesch maybe the last British company that actually manufactures each element. This is the big difference that defines the companies products from those of assembly companies. Why is this so important? Because it enables a level of control that goes well beyond the limitations of assembled designs. The degree of control over the small details that exert such an enormous influence is after all the determining factor of the success of any system.
