Marking what has been a vintage year in China and Asia, Wilson Benesch are thrilled to have been presented with this Award from Audio Visual Magazine. The ‘Prestige’ Award highlights the incredible amount of hard work and dedication in the persuit of the perfect sound that Wilson Benesch has embarked upon for its entire 25-year tenure in the High End Audio market. But further it underlines the excellent work and dedication to our brand and its products by our distribution partners, Forthwise. We would like to make a personal thanks to Robert Wan, Kim Siu and our good friends and colleagues in Hong Kong, China and Macau who have worked tirelessly to bring premium quality, British made products such as the Cardinal to the High End fraternity in these markets.

“In what is without doubt one of the most and if not the most important market in the world such an award comes as a wonderful end to an eventful and exciting year” – Christina Milnes, Managing Director.

The Cardinal is a remarkable and very worthy flagship that is setting the agenda in Asia in much the same way that it has in Europe. The first new product to see Cardinal technology is the Square Five which will make its UK debut at the Bristol Sound & Vision Show in the large prestigious venue of the Conservatory. We look forward to celebrating this award and the company’s 25th Anniversary Year with you.

Silver Anniversary

A special year demands a special event, so Wilson Benesch will be executing its most ambitious demonstration yet showcasing a new 25th Anniversary ‘Circle 25’ Turntable, the new Square Series II flagship, the Square Five, plus a ‘Wilson Benesch Legacy Walk’ through the annals of Wilson Benesch’s legacy products in the flesh to include the original Wilson Benesch Turntable and the A.C.T. One Loudspeaker.

Collaborating with the Best

Continuing our collaboration with the finest front-end designers from across the globe, this year Wilson Benesch will showcase the highly innovative digital electronics from Swiss Audio designers CH Precision. There is no preamplifier in this digital solution, the build quality and clarity of purpose is evident in each and every element. It is for this reason that Wilson Benesch has installed a full CH Precision system as a research tool within its purpose built Research and Development facility located in the Technology Centre on Europe’s largest Advanced Manufacturing Park in Sheffield.

Driving the Square Five Loudspeakers and the Circle 25 will be long standing German partners Audionet. In the AMP1 V2, Pre G3 and the PAM Phono Stage, the Audionet collection represents serious high value for money. The PAM is regarded as one of the finest examples of any such product.

All cables will be supplied by leading British Cable Designers Clearer Audio with ‘Silver-Line Optimus Reference’ cables throughout.

So join us in the Conservatory for a special Silver Anniversary celebration.

Tokyo International Audio Show Report 2013

Wilson Benesch - Cardinal - Carbon Fiber Loudspeaker - High End Speaker - Tokyo International Audio Show 2013 - Stella Inc.

Writing this show report from 36,000ft somewhere over Siberia makes for an exciting end to what has been a phenomenally successful journey to Asia. Set in the impressive Tokyo International Forum, designed by Raphael Vinoly, the Tokyo International Audio Show was more than a match for the stunning architecture as hundreds upon hundreds of high end audio enthusiasts flocked to the exhibition center.

Wilson Benesch recently announced the return to the Japanese market with Stella Inc. and in Tokyo the Cardinal high end loudspeaker was in the company of a multitude of State-of-the-Art high end audio components. Fronted by the reference grade components of TechDAS, Constellation Audio, CH Precision and Devialet, the Wilson Benesch Cardinal received praise across the board.

Leading British and US reviewer Ken Kessler introduced the Cardinal for the main presentation, which included his fascinating lecture “Reviewing High End Audio Equipment”. This presentation was in combination with the Constellation Audio Hercules II 1000 watt per channel Monoblock power amplifiers and the Altair II Line Stage, with the TechDAS Air Force One Turntable and CH Precision D1 CD/SACD source.

The sound was superlative, the presentation by new distribution partner, Stella Inc. flawless and as a result the room was almost always completely full with more than 50 guests.
