Wil­son Be­nesch Res­o­lu­tion

Australian HIFI - - SOUNDBITES -

Wil­son Be­nesch’s new­est de­sign, the Res­o­lu­tion, is now avail­able in Aus­tralia. It’s a seven-driver, three-way floor-stand­ing de­sign in a car­bon fi­bre com­pos­ite mono­coque cab­i­net. Four of Wil­son Be­nesch’s be­spoke ‘Tac­tic-II’ driv­ers, which have iso­tac­tic polypropy­lene cones, and are clam-shell mounted to pro­vide iso­baric load­ing, de­liver the bass. Two more ‘Tac­tic-II’ driv­ers de­liver the midrange. Th­ese midrange driv­ers are po­si­tioned ei­ther side of Wil­son Be­nesch’s silk-car­bon hy­brid dome ‘semi­sphere’ tweeter, a con­fig­u­ra­tion Wil­son Be­nesch calls a ‘Troika Sys­tem.’

‘ Both the Tac­tic-II dy­namic drive units and the Semi­sphere tweeter are built us­ing pow­er­ful ex­otic neodymium fer­rite boron mag­nets that are as­sem­bled within highly en­gi­neered, low-pro­file al­loy struc­tures de­signed to ex­tract max­i­mum power from them,’ said Boris Gra­novsky, of Ab­so­lute HiEnd, who dis­trib­utes Wil­son Be­nesch in Aus­tralia. ‘ The Res­o­lu­tion is ca­pa­ble of pro­duc­ing a wide band­width fre­quency re­sponse from 30Hz to 30kHz, whilst re­main­ing trans­par­ent and in­te­grated across the band, al­low­ing lis­ten­ers to sus­pend be­lief as they dis­ap­pear within the wide-open sound­scape.’

The Res­o­lu­tion is the lat­est loud­speaker in Wil­son Be­nesch’s Ge­om­e­try Se­ries. De­signed and en­gi­neered in Eng­land it mea­sures 1590×520×547mm (HWD) and weighs 90kg. ‘ In the Res­o­lu­tion, by com­bin­ing car­bon com­pos­ites with metal al­loys, Wil­son Be­nesch has en­gi­neered one of the stiffest, most highly damped loud­speaker en­clo­sures ever cre­ated,’ said Gra­novsky. ‘ Be­cause ev­ery Res­o­lu­tion loud­speaker is hand­made to or­der, each one can be en­gi­neered with a range of be­spoke high gloss poly­mers, stun­ning nat­u­ral wood ve­neers and P1 coloured car­bon-fi­bre finishes to give each loud­speaker an iden­tity unique to its owner.’ Avail­able now, the Wil­son Be­nesch Res­o­lu­tion sells for $70,000 per pair (RRP).
