Wilson Benesch directors Christina and Craig Milnes will be appearing at the 6th Annual Westdeutsch Hifi-tage organised by leading German dealer Linzbach. Taking place in Bonn, the event will be held over 2-days and include a presentation of the Vertex loudspeaker and Torus Infrasonic Generator.
The Vertex is the entry level standmount design from the reference line, Geometry Series. Taking design clues from the ground breaking Trinity and Arc before it, the Vertex leads the way in terms of price-performance 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.”

The Vertex drive technology is common to that found across the Geometry Series, employing a single Tactic II Drive Unit for mid/bass and the Wilson Benesch Carbon-Silk Hybrid Dome Semisphere Tweeter. All drive unit technologies in the Geometry Series have been designed, manufactured and assembled in house by Wilson Benesch, a fact that did not escape Michael Vrzal,
With his work (Design Director, Craig Milnes) 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.

The Vertex and Torus presentation will be conducted in partnership with German import partners IBEX Audio Gmbh.
