Dominique Mafrand awards Wilson Benesch Square Five loudspeaker 'Reference'

Square Five hits a Hat-Trick in 2014 with Haute Fidelite
Following in the trail blazed by Roy Gregory and Alan Sircom, Dominique Mafrand of French audio journal Haute Fidelite has just penned another stunning review of the Square Five, awarding the loudspeaker ‘Reference’ in the process.

The Wilson Benesch Square Five speakers fall into a group of the best speakers we’ve tested to date.

Dominique Mafrand, Haute Fidelite, April 2014

In what amounts to the third stunning review in the first half of 2014, and now with a ‘Reference’ award to boot, there is no doubt that the Square Five has been received very well by press around the globe. Mafrand goes on reaffirm the sentiment of Gregory and Sircom by stating,

Under its elegant wood exterior… is a genuine festival of technology… On this day, in this product category, the performance of the Square Five sits with speakers that are twice the price…

Dominique Mafrand, Haute Fidelite, April 2014

The Square Five will be on live demonstration at the Munich High End 2014 in a collaborative exhibition with MiZiK and their newly released and highly regarded MiZiK All-Source Analogue and Digital Control Solution.

The exhibition will take place at the MOC Messe in Room E117 Atrium 4 – details of the event will be announced in full tomorrow – May 1st.

Munich High End 2014: Endeavour Loudspeaker Kempinski Hotel

wilson-benesch-munich-high-end-2014-kempinski-hotel-maximilianstasse-endeavour-loudspeaker-germanyThe Endeavour Loudspeaker will make its Global Premier at the Munich High End 2014

The location for a high end audio exhibition is every bit as important as the product. For this reason, for the second year running Wilson Benesch have chose one of Europe’s finest Hotels for the European launch of its latest cutting edge loudspeaker technology; The Endeavour.

Wilson Benesch officially announced the Endeavour last month via a full press release and the new Endeavour product page which you can view here.

In the 2-weeks since its announcement, the Endeavour Loudspeaker has generated a detectable buzz across the press and followers of the Wilson Benesch brand in all corners of the globe. In particular the promotional film announced on Wilson Benesch TV has caused quite a stir.

Positioned right at the heart of Munich on Maximilianstrasse and flanked by Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior and Cartier, the district is a centre for art and high fashion, making the Kempinski an auspicious setting for the launch of a luxury high end loudspeaker.

Wilson Benesch will again collaborate with leading Swiss Electronic Engineers CH Precision, in what has now become an officially recognised Anglo-Swiss partnership. Building upon the foundations laid last year with the Cardinal – A1 / D1 / C1 partnership, CH Precision have now been announced as Wilson Benesch’s distribution partner in Switzerland. Anyone with a keen eye for detail will have also noted that Wilson Benesch have installed CH Precision Electronics in our R&D Facility and have now become the official UK Distributor for CH Precision.

The CH Precision portfolio includes designs that deliver Silver Disc Replay, Digital to Analogue Conversion as well as equally superb Amplification. In the true spirit of Engineering, Wilson Benesch and CH Precision will design the Endeavour – A1 system architecture to fully optimise the system in terms of local feedback, meeting the requirements of different drive units. This unique design feature of the A1 Amplifiers, allows the user to take full advantage of the Endeavour and indeed the Cardinal’s elemental design. The synergy and immediacy of these systems is a landmark development that represents a paradigm shift in our understanding of audio reproduction.

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
