Wilson Benesch is a boutique high-end brand that often flies under the radar down under. Truth is, the Sheffield, UK based manufacturer is one of the most advanced brands, using state of the art technologies to design and products its products.

Effective immediately, Wilson Benesch has appointed Audio Reference as its distributor for the New Zealand market.

Investing much of its profit in high-risk research and development and contemporary manufacturing technology, Wilson Benesch has progressed technologies in milestones by completing landmark projects with support from Her Majesty's Government Technology Strategy Board funding. It is this dedication to being at the cutting edge of scientific research that has led to the brand's worldwide recognition as a technologically advanced high-end audio design and manufacturing company,

Terry Humpries, Managing Director of Audio Reference told StereoNET:

We've long admired Wilson Benesch and after looking much closer at its range at the Munich High End Show earlier this year, we decided the brand was the perfect addition to our portfolio.

Wilson Benesch's high-tech design compliments high-end brand Magico and its loudspeakers, both in performance and price.

Audio Reference offers a bespoke and tailored approach to high-fidelity audio for its customers. At its well-appointed Devonport showroom, customers are shown varying levels of the finest-products, ensuring the customer enjoys what they hear and purchase the right product for their needs.

Wilson Benesch offers a range of technologically advanced loudspeakers under two banners, its Geometry Series, and the Square Series II. It also offers the highly desirable Circle 25 turntable, along with the Act 25 and Nanotube One tonearms, all produced in-house.

Completing the range is a series of stunning racks with measured performance benefits over traditional racks.

Wilson Benesch joins Audio Reference's stable which already includes leading brands including Audia Flight, Ayon, Brinkmann, MSB Technology, Thrax, Vitus Audio, Brinkmann, Clearaudio, Magico and many more.

StereoNET Australia reviewed the Wilson Benesch Vector speakers back in 2015, declaring:

At $17,000 to purchase in Australia, I believe the Wilson Benesch Vector loudspeakers represent good value. They have the ability to get out of the way of the music entirely and disappear in a manner that most others find difficult to accomplish to this level. They certainly play at the high end of the audio spectrum with immaculate levels of fit and finish and overall quality that is expected by discerning enthusiasts.

Audio Reference will be holding an open night soon and StereoNET readers will be invited to come along for a no-obligation listen to Wilson Benesch, and selected products from the Audio Reference stables, in a relaxed and enjoyable environment.

Wilson Benesch products are expected to arrive towards the end of July 2018.
