Wilson Benesch Directors Craig and Christina Milnes visited Germany for the event which consisted of two separate rooms with Wilson Benesch being presented in each. In room one, the Geometry Series was at the heart of the presentation as the Endeavour ‘Super-Monitor’ loudspeaker took the floor with CH Precision electronics – seen in the image, a D1 CD/SACD Player/Transport, the C1 Controller and an A1 Power Amplifier.

In a second room the Square Series II took the floor, with a presentation of both the Square Three loudspeaker and the Square Five loudspeaker. In support were other select components from both IBEX Audio’s and Sound@Home’s shortlist of brands, including the Audiomat Integrated Tube Amplifier, along with the Viva Numerico CD Player.

As ever, the event was well attended – tribute to the quality of the dealership Sound@Home who brought audiophiles to the shop to share a special event. Wilson Benesch would like to thank Sound@Home and IBEX Audio for organising the event.

Last week Wilson Benesch Directors Craig and Christina Milnes visited Winchester HiFi in England to present the Endeavour loudspeaker, R1 HiFi Rack, Torus Infrasonic Generator and the Circle 25 Turntable at an open house event at the dealership.

The event itself was very well attended on the evening and provided guests with the opportunity to learn about each design by way of a presentation from Wilson Benesch design director Craig Milnes.

The system was powered by two Linn Klimax Solo monoblock amplifiers and the Linn Klimax DSM Streamer, plus a Torus and its dedicated Torus Amplifier and a Circle 25 Anniversary Turntable which was partnered with an Audionet PAM G3 Phono Stage.

Christina and Craig played from a selection of Wilson Benesch vinyl on the evening, including some direct cut vinyl recordings. The event was highly successful, the Endeavour and Torus combination was really very impressive. Guests included, a number of current Wilson Benesch customers, along with some customers who were new to the brand and the sound. Both Christina and Craig were very grateful to all the kind comments received on the evening and want to thank those who attended. Finally we would also like to thank Andy of Winchester HiFi and Andrew Mackay who photographed the event and provided us with the selection of images included in the lightbox below.

The Endeavour will remain setup at Winchester HiFi for the next week or so. Private demonstrations of the system can be arranged through Andy at Winchester HiFi.

Intek Ltd: Exclusive new Distribution partner

Wilson Benesch - Intek - Endeavour - Distribution - Croatia - Slovenia - Serbia Montenegro - Loudspeakers - Turntables

Wilson Benesch, Official Press Release, Intek Ltd., 8th October, 2015 – Sheffield, England

Wilson Benesch are proud to announce a new distribution partnership with Intek Ltd.. The new partnership officially recognises Intek Ltd. as the exclusive distribution partner in Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia, BiH, Montenegro, and Macedonia.

Located in the vibrant cosmopolitan city of Ljubljana, Slovenia, Intek Ltd. is a business established on a passion for audio and music reproduction, “Our approach to distribution of hifi and high-end audio products is based on the belief that by importing quality product and providing quality advice, we can share our love and passion for music with others”.

Intek Ltd. also collaborate with a network of dealers across the region, working with the aim to bring high-end audio products, such as Wilson Benesch to regions previously without access to the product.

Intek will officially launch Wilson Benesch at the ‘Hifi Multimedia Show’ in Ljubljana this weekend 9-10th October with a display of Wilson Benesch products.

A second live demonstration of Wilson Benesch’s Square Two Loudspeaker and the Vertex Loudspeaker will take place in Zagreb on 23-25th October at the ‘HIFI Media’ Exhibition. Further details of this event along with a show preview will follow shortly.

Wilson Benesch Circle 25 Turntable and A.C.T. 25 TonearmWilson Benesch Collections Available via Intek Ltd.: Analogue Collection

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.

Wilson Benesch - Cardinal Loudspeaker - Geometry Series - Carbon Fibre
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:Wilson Benesch - Square Five Loudspeaker - Square Series II

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.

Wilson Benesch - Infrasonic Generator - Sound OrganisationTorus 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.
