After a long absence from the USA High End Audio Exhibition circuit, Wilson Benesch are thrilled to post Round 7 of the P1 Collection Tour, which sees the A.C.T. One Evolution P1 loudspeaker roar into the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest courtesy of new importer Aaudio Imports.

In celebration of this dazzling return to US shores and drawing a direct line to Aaudio Imports branding, Wilson Benesch collaborated with our new import partner and Hypetex to create a new ‘Ettore’ Blue finish for the A.C.T. One Evolution P1. The ‘Ettore’ name given to the stunning new finish is a historical reference to Ettore Bugatti, the Italian-born French automobile designer and manufacturer, who founded of Bugatti.

The french automotive company takes its blue branding from the national motor racing colours of France. The blue colour was selected by the French motorsport team in 1904, after the British GP was moved to Ireland. At the 1903 British GP, the British chose to change the colour of the standard black racing car that lined up in the field, to Green, in honour of their Irish hosts. Soon after the French team chose Blue, German’s White, Belgians Yellow and the Italians Red.

First held in 2004, this year will be the 12th Edition of the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest. RMAF is considered the largest consumer high end audio show in North America.

Aaudio Imports are recognised and widely respected in the US audio hierarchy for importing some of the finest audio products available. Only a cursory glance at the house brands will confirm this. Aaudio Imports will be demonstrating in room 4024, in a breath taking high end system built around the A.C.T. One Evolution P1 Ettore, partnered with Greek high end electronics from Ypsilon.

Wilson Benesch, Official Press Release, 1st September, 2016 – Sheffield, UK

Wilson Benesch is delighted announce Aaudio Imports as the Official US Distribution partner for Wilson Benesch Analog and select Loudspeaker collections. Founded in 1989 and based in Sheffield, England, Wilson Benesch is one of the leading British exporters of bespoke, high technology, advanced engineered audio products. Wilson Benesch leverages internal engineering and manufacturing proficiency alongside collaborative partnerships with a variety of University Research partnerships and the Advanced Manufacturing Park and Research Centre in Sheffield. This unique approach to product development and design is in harmony with the company’s vertically integrated manufacturing operation that sees almost all product inventory designed, engineered, tooled, manufactured and assembled in house.

Wilson Benesch pioneered the use of carbon fibre composites in audio design and manufacturing. The material is now synonymous with the brand and encapsulates the high-tech image of the company. Within both the company’s Analogue Collection and Geometry Series Loudspeaker designs, intelligent and thoughtful design can be seen to exploit the unique properties of carbon fibre composites; namely its high stiffness and exceptional energy damping characteristics; to give rise to industry leading signal-to-noise ratio performance.

In 2016 Wilson Benesch added a collection of patented coloured carbon fibre finishes to its reference loudspeaker line, the Geometry Series. Identified within the company’s loudspeaker lines by the addition of the ‘P1 Collection’ moniker, the new material redefines the application of this advanced engineering technology in the luxury high end product sector. The aesthetic appeal and language of the Geometry Series and its new P1 Collection finishes has created something exceptional and unique, once again defining Wilson Benesch as a company at the forefront of High End Audio Design and Engineering.

In May 2016, Wilson Benesch unveiled for the first time its new coloured carbon fibre ‘A.C.T. P1 Monocoque’ with a high profile launch of its Geometry Series ‘A.C.T. One Evolution P1’ loudspeaker at the Munich HIGH END. The loudspeaker displayed the new luxurious ‘Enzo’ carbon fibre, set off by flashes of red detailing across the honeycomb grill and the loudspeakers mid and top plates. The A.C.T. One Evolution P1 bore a high concept collection of products that evoke the notions of speed associated with the motorsport heritage of Hypetex coloured carbon fibre material. And so the Geometry Series: P1 Collection was borne.

Today we are delighted to announce a series of P1 Collection Tour dates that will take place around the world through 2016 and into 2017. The list is not exhaustive and we expect to add a few more dates yet, but the tour will officially kick off in Hong Kong this weekend, followed swiftly by Taiwan the weekend following, before returning to Europe for a series of dates, including Holland, Germany, France, Poland and England throughout the HiFi Season ahead.

At each event, guests can expect to get up close and personal with the patented material technology that is at the heart of the new P1 Collection, with samples for each of the P1 finishes available to see and touch. Wilson Benesch has selected a trio of colours, that both visually and by name evoke the sense of F1 heritage in the P1 Collection. Those colours are ‘Enzo’ (red), ‘Silverstone’ (silver) and ‘Champagne’ (Gold).
