Just 12-days following this weekends Resolution loudspeaker Global Premiere at the Munich HIGH END, Wilson Benesch are delighted to share confirm that the USA Premiere for the the new floorstanding loudspeaker will take place at the inaugural Los Angeles Audio Show.
The new Los Angeles show promises to be an exciting new event in the high end audio calendar, located on the West coast of the USA in the sunshine state of California. And after the relaunch of Wilson Benesch in the USA with Aaudio Imports in September 2016, Wilson Benesch has been firmly thrust back into the spotlight in the USA. In October, Aaudio Imports debuted the A.C.T. One Evolution P1 at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest in a new ‘Ettore’ Blue coloured carbon fibre that was unveiled especially for the show in Denver. In November 2016, Wilson Benesch collected a CES Innovation Award for the design, which was in turn presented at the CES International Exhibition in January 2017. Last week, the Resolution loudspeaker made its global premiere at the Munich HIGH END, featuring as a ‘Best of’ in Jonathan Valin’s post show report,
On a roll lately, Wilson Benesch was also demo’ing in two rooms, only in this case it was debuting the same speaker in each: the $70k Resolution, a seven-driver three-way (four clamshell-mounted Tactic II woofers, two Tactic II midranges, and a single silk-dome/carbon-fiber tweeter in a monocoque carbon-fiber-composite cabinet). In the first room the Resolution was paired with CH Precision electronics and sources, and the sound was stat-like in its clarity and absence of enclosure coloration (despite severe bleed-through from a neighboring cubicle and a bit of room-induced bass boom). But it was in the second room, where the speaker was driven by Ypsilon electronics and sourced by a Dohmann Helix turntable, that the Resolution really shone. The sound was considerably fuller and more beautiful than in the CH room, with warmer, richer, more lifelike vocal timbre on my Johnny Hartman LP and well defined standup bass. The piano may not have been as crisp and ivory-like on top as it was in the CH room, but Hartmann sounded more like the silky baritone that he was. Indeed, the presentation was reminiscent of the Rockport Cygnus in the Soulution room—beautiful in color, with superior pace and definition in the low end. Wilson Benesch makes swell loudspeakers.
the Ypsilon Phaethon integrated amp and the Wilson Benesch A.C.T. One Evolution loudspeakers plus Torus Infrasonic Generator were all operating in that same exclusive, ultra-fidelity realm. It was intoxicating. The music was present, not because of its tangible weight or body, but because of its extreme, detailed vividness

Sharing common drive technologies with the A.C.T. One Evolution and Discovery II, along with the Troika System found in the A.C.T. and the Isobaric Drive System found in the Discovery II, the Resolution will have that familiar Wilson Benesch sound enjoyed by so many at the exhibitions in the past few months.
