It was eleven years ago that the original A.C.T. One, was released at the Frankfurt
High End Show. This was at a time when every floor standing loudspeaker was a box! Joachim Bose and Thomas Bockler of Alto Hi-fidelity helped make Wilson Benesch a major success in Germany. A success story that would unfold across the rest of the world with Japan being the next major market to follow. The scale of progress made by Wilson Benesch over these industrious years has been one of the great success stories of British Audio design. The original design remains unique in every detail and even today second hand values are testimony to the quality of the product and its value as a reliable investment. This design established Wilson Benesch throughout the world as a loudspeaker design company with prestigious awards and critical acclaim from every continent. In 2006 the latest A.C.T. was selected in the “Recommended Components” listing of Stereophile, USA.
So the story goes on. How many loudspeaker designs of 1996 remain so strong today?
The A.C.T. remains one of the most elegant loudspeaker designs available today. It is possible to see that the design has changed so very little in terms of its visual design aesthetic. We all recognise, that the most demanding test of any advanced design, is the test of time. So although the materials technology is even more advanced it remains just as small and precise as the original. A worthy, time served ambassador of the Wilson Benesch marque.
