Following a thoroughly enjoyable trip to the Westdeutsch Hifi-Tage in Bonn with our partners IBEX Audio, these are a few images from the exhibition along with a report from i-Fidelity.net.

The room sounded really great. The setup consisted of the Vertex stand mounted loudspeaker, partnered with the Torus Infrasonic Generator. The exhibition which has been organised by Linzbach, a leading HIFI dealer in Germany and was very well attended.

A short report from the exhibition can be found here.

We would like to thank Nicole and Michael of IBEX Audio and also all the team at Linzbach for another excellent event. See you next year.

Landing back in the UK from Japan and arriving in Bonn as we have today for this weekends Westdeutsch Hifi Tage, ones feet have barely hit the ground, both metaphorically and in this instance literally! But we would like to thank our Japanese import partners Stella and all the organisers and attendees for what was another fantastic Tokyo International Audio Show.

A remarkable audio show, held in high regard by the HIFI fraternity across the globe, not least for the high concentration of cutting edge HIFI companies that attend each year, but also for the degree of professionalism in the presentations and the passionate and knowledgable audiophiles which attend each year. Thank you to all.

This year we attended the event in support of the A.C.T. One Evolution, the companies new floorstanding design. In many ways, seeing this design in 2015 performing as it did, to a great reception by the audience, was a stirring experience. The Evolution design follows a long heritage of A.C.T. (Advanced Composite Technology) designs that the company has launched in it’s 26-year history. Indeed the first loudspeaker ever built by the company was named the A.C.T. One. Standing before an audience in 2015 to present the A.C.T. One Evolution – a design which has been refined and advanced through an iterative process, was like presenting our lifetimes work. A very rewarding experience and our thanks once again to Stella Inc. creating an excellent presentation of Wilson Benesch.

So these are a few of our impressions of the Tokyo International Audio Show 2015.

Westdeutsch Hifi-Tage 2015

Wilson Benesch - Vertex - Torus - Loudspeaker - Carbon Fibre - Geometry Series - Germany - 2015Wilson 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.”

Michael Vrzal, Image HIFI, Germany 2012

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.

– Michael Vrzal, Image HIFI, Germany 2012

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