Celebrating their 25th anniversary, Wilson Benesch launched the Circle 25 turntable and A.C.T. 25 Tonearm. With roots in its predecessor, the Circle turntable, the Circle 25 has been redesigned and improved. Its plinth is now manufactured entirely in house from a high grade engineering polymer. This material contributes 6.5 lbs of additional mass, increasing stability and damping. The new bearing references the original Wilson Benesch turntable bearing. It utilises precision machined phosphor bronze and high performance alloys to ensure that the bearing will perform like its predecessor consistently over a wide range of ambient temperatures for decades.
The use of high grade carbon fiber makes the A.C.T. 25 tapered tonearm one of the world’s lightest, stiffest and most highly damped tonearms. It is 15% lighter than its predecessor and is finished with a high integrity, luxurious carbon fiber bias plate.
Wilson Benesch Loudspeaker Collection
All Wilson Benesch, loudspeakers share the same DNA, from floor standing to bookshelf, all are designed, engineered and hand built with fastidious attention to detail. From the world’s first curved carbon composite loudspeaker, to the patented Torus Infrasonic Generator; Wilson Benesch pushes the envelope within Acoustic Engineering.
Geometry Series Collection:
Whilst Wilson Benesch’s approach to design is underpinned by advanced technology, understated, timeless aesthetic excellence remain at the core of the creative process at all stages. In every way, the Geometry Series represents a bold statement of this fusion of technology and design. Elegant, curvaceous carbon composite cabinet architecture houses the Wilson Benesch Tactic II drive units and Semisphere tweeters. The stiff and highly damped chassis allows Wilson Benesch to optimise air volume and employ unique approaches to drive unit topology.
Six Distinct Models Comprise the Geometry Collection:
The Endeavour and Vertex are stand mount, bookshelf size loudspeakers. The Vector, A.C.T. One Evolution and Cardinal (pictured left) models are floor standing models with the Fulcrum a centre channel that is stand mount, shelf or wall mount.
A silk black baffle, spine, foot and carbon fibre cabinet is beautifully augmented with side cheeks that may be customised with a choice of 14 polymer or natural wood veneer side cheek finishes, expertly applied by Bentley trained craftsmen to compliment any décor.
Square Series II Collection:
The exterior of the Square Series II is nothing short of breathtaking. Internally the Square Series II benefits from decades of research and engineering mastery, to create a high-tech cabinet that rings every inch of performance from the traditional cabinet composition. Carbon composite technology has been employed to stiffen and damp the internal walls of the cabinet. High and medium mass alloy pads add critical mass damping. The Tactic Drive Unit, taken directly from the companies now legacy range, the Odyssey Series, is deployed in the Square Series for unrivalled performance in its class.
The Series consists of five models; the Square One a pedestal standing bookshelf style, the Square Two, Three and Five (pictured right) are floor standing and the Square Centre creates a closed loop approach for those wishing to achieve 3-channel audio or full cinema systems.
Each Square Series II product is expertly crafted from the same veneers available in the company’s Geometry Series.
Torus Infrasonic Generator Dynamic Loudspeaker
The result of years of research and development, the patented Wilson Benesch Torus System offers a momentous departure from the typical subwoofer solution in reproducing low frequency sound.
The Torus design sees two high power motors in push pull configuration as part of a precision machined core that drives the Torus’s light and ultra-stiff 18-inch carbon fibre P.E.T. diaphragm. Low frequency transients are reproduced with ease and a transparency unmatched by conventional dynamic driver based subwoofer designs.
Torus External Amplifier
The passive design of the Torus Infrasonic Generator frees the amplifier from the low frequency energy endured by amplifiers in traditional integrated designs. The flexibility of the Torus Amplifier enables both high and low level inputs to be fixed independently. The versatility of the Torus allows seamless integration with a wide variety of systems where dynamic, accurate and transparent low frequency reproduction is critical.
Available in Gloss Black.
