Square Series II, Square Five Review, HIFI+ 2014

Alan Sircom 'highly recommends' Wilson Benesch's new Square Five, 2014

As anticipation builds for the Munich High End 2014; Europe’s finest and indeed one of the world’s leading high end audio exhibits. Wilson Benesch are thrilled to share the latest Square Five review from the UK’s leading HIFI Journal, HIFI+.

Launching in London in September 2013, taking centre stage at the Bristol Sound & Vision in February and highly regarded in Roy Gregory’s Audiobeat.com review in January, the Square Five has leapt from the blocks and into the conscience of audiophiles across the globe.

As we reach the first third of 2014, the momentum behind the Square Series II flagship is unrelenting and we can now share the thoughts and opinions of the highly respected Editor-In-Chief at HIFI+, Alan Sircom.

Genuine seekers of 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+, March 2014
