Wilson Benesch

Wilson Benesch - the future is carbonFounded in 1989 and located in Sheffield, England, Wilson Benesch is a globally recognised brand that is synonymous with excellence, designing and manufacturing some of the world’s most desirable high-end audio products. From their original A.C.T. One speaker through to the Taurus Infrasonic Generator, Wilson Benesch have built a reputation for innovation and expertise with carbon fibre technologies, Tactic drive units and building speaker systems that simply sound like no other.

Their R1 carbon fibre racks deliver a major upgrade in sound quality and are visually stunning. The Circle 25 turntable with the A.C.T. 25 or Nanotube One tonearms have set the reference since their introduction and their speaker systems are so responsive, resolving and low in distortion that they are re-defining audiophile expectations around the world.

Imagine that you attended a concert where two professional pianists played exactly the same piece of music. One performance was enjoyable while the other was compelling, emotionally moving & unforgettable. If both pianists are playing the exact same sheet music, how can there be such a different reaction to each by the listener? The answer lies in the subtle differences in their interpretations of the music…. slight timing differences, differing pressures applied to the piano keys at key moments or even an intrinsic ability that one pianist has to infuse the performance with emotion.

To appreciate these subtle but profound differences, you need to have a speaker system that can communicate these nuances, reveal these inner details. Wilson Benesch have researched and developed unique technologies and honed them for over 30 years, resulting in speaker systems that have an uncanny ability to bring to life the soul & essence of a musical performance. One of the reasons for their exceptional performance is that they manufacture the whole speaker in-house, including the drivers, giving them full control over the quality and integration. This is extremely rare even among the traditional high end establishment.

Adding to their long list of awards, their flagship Eminence speaker has been awarded the 2019 Absolute Sound’s Product of the Year Award and the 2019 TAS Golden Ear Award.
Simply sensational!

Sonic Invisibility Through Engineering Elegance

In his review of the Cardinal speakers for Audio Beat in April 2013, reviewer Roy Gregory describes the paradigm shifting performance of the Wilson Benesch Cardinal speaker through the idea of imagining that you are sitting in front of an acoustically transparent curtain, behind which is a pair of speakers playing a familiar recording. He suggests that most experienced listeners should be able to tell what type of speaker is playing, in particular being able to tell if the speakers are horns, dipole electrostatic, omni-directional, dynamic driver or mini monitors. This is because generally speaking, these different types of speakers have their own discernible sonic signatures with their own strengths and weaknesses.

Roy continues that in this instance, the speaker behind the curtain doesn’t conform to expectations, doesn’t represent an identifiable thumbprint. Instead, he contends that you hear many of the strengths of each design with an absence of the weaknesses, contending that “this speaker doesn’t play the game by the same rules of so many existing high-end designs.”
