Bristol 2015: Square Five Loudspeaker

Wilson Benesch - Square Five Loudspeaker - Square Series II
Wilson Benesch Square Five gives you the “Musical Truth” at the Bristol Sound & Vision 2015
Last year the Square Five Loudspeaker entered the fray, debuting at the Bristol ‘Sound & Vision’, supported by the Alan Sircom’s HIFI+ review in which the Editor-in-Chief proclaimed:

Genuine seekers of the musical truth will look at the Square Five as an honest way of extracting £20,000 or even £25,000 loudspeaker performance without the five-figure price tag… Put simply, it’s the Cardinal for us mortals – Alan Sircom, HIFI+

In many ways, the Square Five has become a very special product for Wilson Benesch. Not only did the design feature trickle-down technologies from our flagship loudspeaker, Cardinal. But also the Square Five was launched during the company’s landmark Silver Jubilee 25th Anniversary year. For these reasons alone it will remain a classic within the Wilson Benesch marquee for many years to come.

But the Square Five design stands out on it’s own merit. With several knockout reviews, collecting the ‘Reference’ award in French publication Haute Fidelite and a strong 5th place in the magazines ‘Top 50 Products Awards List’later in 2014. And then a month long residency in the Devialet signature store in Paris. The Square Five has all the hallmarks of high-quality British design.

Under its elegant wood exterior… is a genuine festival of technology… On this day, in this product category, the performance of the Square Five sits with speakers that are twice the price… – Dominique Mafrand, Haute Fidelite

Wilson Benesch will bring the Square Five to the Bristol ‘Sound & Vision’ audience for a second year. You can join us Friday through Sunday in the 1st Floor Conservatory for a festival of sound and technology.

Bristol 2015: Endeavour & CH Precision

Wilson Benesch - CH Precision - A1 - D1 - C1 - Endeavour

Wilson Benesch return to Bristol ‘Sound & Vision’ with World-Class Audio Demonstration
At the turn of the year we closed with the exciting news that the new Wilson Benesch Endeavour Loudspeaker would make its UK Exhibition Premiere at the Bristol ‘Sound & Vision’ in February. This was confirmed officially via the Bristol Sound & Vision website.

Today we are delighted to confirm that Wilson Benesch will partner the Endeavour loudspeaker with the world-class amplifier and digital front end of CH Precision. Following a second press release posted to the Bristol Sound & Vision website on Friday, we can confirm that Wilson Benesch will distribute CH Precision exclusively in the UK.

CH Precision
CH Precision is a Swiss High End Audio company dedicated to the design and manufacture of State-of-the-Art audio products. The company is located in Lausanne, on the shores of Lake Geneva in Switzerland.

Founded by Florian Cossy and Thierry Heeb, CH Precision design all components in house and operate an exclusively Swiss manufacturing supply chain. Precision manufacturing is a strong tradition in Switzerland. There is a fascination and expertise in detailed manufacturing that is embedded within the very fabric and culture of Switzerland thanks to the long national tradition of watch making. It is a reputation recognised worldwide.

Switzerland’s demography and sociology conspire to make exactly one model work: high price, combined with high value through quality – Alan Taffel, The Absolute Sound, USA

Indeed both Florian Cossy and Thierry Heeb cut their teeth at Goldmund, being responsible for amplifier design and digital design respectively. Together the combined experience and expertise make for a stunning product and goes some way to explaining why the CH Precision team are responsible for all hardware, software and mechanical design.

CH Precision in Bristol 2015
As the sole UK distributor for the multi-award winning range of CH Precision electronics, Wilson Benesch will debut the CH Precision line to the British public at the ‘Sound & Vision – Bristol Show’.

Having collected awards around the globe, including the much-coveted ‘Stereosound Grand Prix Japan’ for the A1 Amplifier and C1 D/A Controller, the opportunity to listen to class-leading CH Precision products in the UK is not one to be missed.

Wilson Benesch will be showcasing the CH Precision A1 Amplifier, C1 D/A Controller and D1 CD/SACD Player in combination with the new Endeavour loudspeaker daily in the 1st Floor Conservatory.

There will be just one, hour-long live demonstration between 2 – 3.30pm, Friday through Sunday.

Preview: Bristol Sound & Vision 2015

Wilson Benesch - Bristol Sound & Vision Show 2015 - Circle 25 Turntable - Analogue Collection

In 2015 Wilson Benesch return for the 29th Edition of ‘Sound & Vision, The Bristol Show’
Following last years celebration of 25-Years at the sharp end of High End Audio, Wilson Benesch will be returning in for the 2015 edition of ‘Sound & Vision, The Bristol Show’.

Widely regarded as the premier British High End Audio show and a firm favourite for all at the company, Wilson Benesch tend to do something a little special every year. Last year we chose the event for the first public appearance of the Circle 25 Anniversary Turntable and A.C.T. 25 Anniversary Tonearm.

So what will 2015 hold in store?
In May 2014 Wilson Benesch launched one of its most ambitious products to date. The Endeavour Loudspeaker, a sophisticated, highly refined and luxurious standmount which went on to make waves in Germany and around the globe. Named in honour of Captain Cook’s HMS Bark Endeavour and a commemoration of the 250th Anniversary of the vessels launch from the Yorkshire coastal town of Whitby. The Endeavour will form part of the exhibition at the Bristol Sound & Vision 2015.

Building upon the 2014 launch, the Circle 25 Anniversary Turntable and A.C.T. 25 Tonearm will make another appearance. With the BPI recently announcing that vinyl sales up to the close of 2014 have been the strongest since 1996, Wilson Benesch hotly anticipate the air of excitement and enthusiasm that will inevitably surround the medium and its replay at the Sound & Vision Show. Long term supporters of analogue replay, Wilson Benesch continue to develop a number of accessories for the Circle 25, some of which might just get a premier at the Sound & Vision.

We will update this preview again early next year.

See you all in the New Year!
