What Hi-Fi – 5 STAR review – Square Two

Quote from the Five Star, What Hi-Fi Sound and Vision Review on the Square Two’s.

The verdict on the Square Two from What Hi-Fi is now on the street.

“They deliver one of the finest sounds ever available at this price”

A quote from the review is provided for you below.

“Keen eye for detail
When it comes to dynamics, detail resolution or agility, these are good enough to worry many a true high speaker – and yes, that includes some of Wilson Benesch’s own models. Rarely do we hear Gladiators OST sound so rousing while remaining so utterly composed. Instruments are defined superbly and its easy to follow musical strands, even when the soundtrack gets busy.
Did we mention the Square Twos are fast? Sorry, that’s an understatement. To paraphrase Lightening McQueen, the lead in Pixar’s Cars, they’re faster than fast – they are speed. We’ve only heard a handful of speakers that come close to the Square Two’s almost supernatural ability to respond to the leading edge of notes. It’s a quality that works particularly well on rhythm-driven music like Prince’s Lolita or even James Brown’s Cold Sweat.”

Germany A.C.T. review by Kai Brockman of Image hi fi

Kai Brockman of Image hifi 6/2006 writes review on the A.C.T. Loudspeaker.

“Perfect undestatement.”

Kai Brockmann schreibt: Also Hut ab vor der Wilson Benesch ACT: Eine derartige Perfektion in puncto Qualitat, verbunden mit ausgesprochenen elegenaten High-tech-Gespur, abgeschmeckt mit erfrischenden Ingredienzien und kredenzt in einer verfahrerrischen Gesamterscheinung – das ist mir noch nicht untergekommen.

Below is an extract from Jonathon Valins Forum

Rocky Mountain Audio Fest: deHavilland, Mercury & Wilson-Benesch
October 22nd, 2006 By Jonathan Valin

As was the case with the Gershman Black Swans, I’ve not been a fan of Wilson-Benesch loudspeakers, which, in the past, have sounded sumptuously detailed and extremely free of box coloration but overly cool and analytical. Maybe it was the addition of W-B’s own $9500 Torus Infrasonic Generator (soon to be reviewed by moi), maybe it was deHavilland’s $10k GM70 amps and $5k Mercury preamp (plus Cardas cable), but W-B’s newest entry, the $15k 2.5-way floorstanding A.C.T., had all of the virtues of W-B’s former entries (little to no box or driver coloration, an abundance of fine detail) without their flaws. Sweet and beautiful in balance, supremely open, with a front-to-back layering that was scarce on the ground at RMAF, it impressed the heck out of me. I did think the single Torus should have been a pair for best images (and turned down just the slightest bit in amplitude); nonetheless, this was one of the better sounds at RMAF.
