"From the 1960s, brands like KEF and Bowers & Wilkins pioneered the use of new materials in drive unit technology, but arguably no company pushes the envelope of materials science these days quite like Wilson Benesch."

 

Alan Sircom, Editor HiFi +, 2012

The mathematical nomenclature afforded the Vertex and it floorstanding sibling the Vector pay homage to the fundamental importance of organic, geometrically optimised forms that have been exploited in pursuit of ultimate performance within the company’s reference loudspeaker line, the Geometry Series.

 

Wilson Benesch invested heavily in new manufacturing technology and the latest 3D CAD/CAM software and tooling to realise a highly optimised product line which surpasses in every respect, the previous reference line, the Odyssey Range. The Geometry Series celebrates the importance of music and its importance within our life.

 

A compact 2-way design, the Vertex features the revolutionary Semisphere Silk-Carbon Hybrid Dome Tweeter and a single Tactic II drive unit. The drive units are secured in an aluminium baffle, precision machined in house from a solid billet. To the rear of the cabinet, the A.C.T. Carbon Monocoque leaves no question, this is a high-performance Geometry Series thoroughbred.

 

As the entry point into the company’s reference line, the Vertex is a compact high-technology stand mount loudspeaker that represents incredible value for money. Thanks to the common drive technologies shared across the Geometry Series, the Vertex shares a family sound with the companies reference loudspeaker, the Cardinal. But up with a choice of luxurious wood veneers and high-gloss polymer finishes, the Vertex is a powerful statement of high-end audio luxury.
