Wilson Benesch products are unique in every detail. The visual aesthetic is determined by function and engineered from the raw material under one roof. The quality of finish is a natural requirement of materials. Choice and sonic performance is everything.
The Wilson Benesch product range is extensive and is comprised of the following Series:
Geometry Series – Cardinal, Fulcrum 650 Centre, Vector & Vertex
The Geometry Series pays homage to the importance of geometry in all good design. With the Geometry Series Wilson Benesch applies these principles, with passion, to Acoustic Engineering.
The Geometry Series aspires to be the evolutionary development of the time tested Odyssey Series that is now in its tenth year. This collection provides the summation of many years of considered thought and re-evaluation, encouraged in part, by new technologies and new manufacturing capabilities.
Odyssey Series – Chimera, A.C.T., Discovery, Curve, ARC & Centre
The success of any loudspeaker is defined by many things but none more so than the cabinet construction and the dynamic drive unit technology. In both these fields Wilson Benesch has introduced radically different design solutions.
Wide Bandwidth Collection – Trinity, A.C.T. C60, C60 Limited Edition & Torus Infrasonic Generator
New challenges new opportunities, a new genre in loudspeaker design. Wide Bandwidth: The capacity to recreate the actual event relies upon a number of fundamental design objectives.
Square Series 2 – Square Five, Square Three, Square Two, Square One, Square Centre
Analogue Collection – Full Circle Turntable, Carbon Cartridge, Ply Cartridge, A.C.T 0.5 Tonearm, Nanotube One Tonearm
MKoM is very proud to feature the following Wilson Benesch models within our reference systems: Odyssey Series – A.C.T., Discovery, Arc & Square Two
A.C.T. – Balance is a critical factor in all good design and in the A.C.T. there is no finer balance. The cabinet is assembled, as you would expect from a Wilson Benesch loudspeaker, by hand from materials technologies that you would commonly see in Formula One race cars or advanced fighter aircraft. They represent the most advanced cabinet structures ever created by a loudspeaker company and are quite unique.
Acoustically, the A.C.T. is capable of communicating the finest nuances of the event. It achieves this without addition or embellishment of any kind. It is a sense of naturalness, that is perhaps the greatest strength of this time honored design. Few if any have stood this most demanding test.
Discovery – Conceptually unique, this virtual point source, full range loudspeaker. has been precisely optimized, to extract the absolute maximum from the smallest enclosure. Its electrostatic qualities are underpinned by lightening fast dynamics, that leave the listener with nothing but effortless sound. A visually striking design, it is instilled with timeless qualities that defy convention. The design is quite simply beyond categorization. Yet, it achieves this without vulgar over statement or trivial additions.
Acoustically its principle achievement is the staggering depth of field and vast sound-stage. The Discovery is the Harry Houdini of loudspeakers, disappearing as it so easily does without a trace.
Arc – Showing little, if any mercy to convention, the engineering prowess of the Arc redefined the stand mounted loudspeaker. Millions of carbon fibres are juxtaposed with precision extruded alloy sections, achieving an attractive but highly functional form. Driven by function like all good design, this design could lay claim to numerous achievements but without doubt its versatility and industry standard signal to noise ratio are beyond question. It is a great communicator, taking any type of program and reproducing it in the most sincere way, according to the quality of the recording.

Diapason was founded in 1987 by Alessandro Schiavi, who previously had extensive experience in recording studios. His skill in capturing live music in three dimensional space and its faithful reproduction, led to the development of the first speaker by Diapason, the Prelude.
The Prelude, and all the speakers manufactured by Diapason, are designed to offer the highest fidelity and transparency to the absolute sound. Furthermore, our speakers convey the emotional involvement of the live performance.
Each Diapason speaker is hand assembled and wired by skilled craftsmen. The beautiful cabinetry is not only an integral part of the design, but the highest example of Italian furniture- making. The cabinets, which are constructed in solid-wood staves and completely handmade by our skilled craftsmen, are assembled in a particular way which makes the whole structure highly rigid and free from resonance.
At the basis of every Diapason project is the study of form, whether in the search for an elegant and refined appearance or for innovative solutions in the quest for perfect acoustic reproduction. The Reference Series and Adamantes Limited Edition represent the pinnacle of this research, with its “diamond” form which enables the loudspeaker drive units to perform at their best. Their unique polyhedral shape eliminates all distorting resonances allowing the music to be heard without smear or boxiness.
The drive units and crossovers used in each Diapason project are the result of the most advanced acoustic research, and are matched to a tolerance of within 1%. Drive units are made exclusively by the best manufacturers to strict Diapason specifications. Only materials which have been thoroughly tested are used, to ensure the best acoustic performance and to allow ease of driving by any kind of amplifier.
Adamantes 25th Anniversary joins the Diapason family in celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the original Adamantes, designed in 1989 by Alessandro Schiavi, and well-known for its diamond shaped multi-faceted solid wood cabinet. Owing its name to the ancient Greek word meaning “diamond”, Adamantes has been a revolutionary and yet still modern design for the last 25 years.
The speaker-shape design, especially created in order to achieve a realistic and superb sound performance, match with Italian cabinet craftsmanship that make each speaker a unique and precious piece of art.

Easy to place in any home environment the book-shelves Micra III and its floor-standing version, Ares, will surprise you for the “big” sound they are able to return and for their versatility when matched to your audio system.
Innovative technology on drivers&crossover is peculiar to Diapason speakers design.
Diapason Direct Drive technology is used for direct connection from the amplifier to the bass driver without the use of a low-pass filter in the crossover, giving grater transient speed in low frequency range. Drive units are made by the best manufacturers to strict Diapason specifications. Only materials which have been thoroughly tested are used, to ensure the best acoustic performance and to allow ease of driving by any kind of amplifier.
The high-pass crossover circuit is hard wired with Van den hul CS cable in oxygen-free silver coated copper, eliminating deleterious sonic effect of printed-circuit boards.
The 75 cm. 1/M stand can be matched with Micra III for floor placement. Can be sand- filled to correct resonance-damping and is provided with spikes and cups for placement on hard surfaces or on carpets and rugs.

The QUAD electrostatic speaker ESL produces such a faithfully real sound that for 50 years QUAD has been synonymous with the phrase “For the Closest Approach of the Original Sound”. Together with the later ESL63, Peter Walker developed the two very best electrostatics ever.
When QUAD decided in 1996 to terminate the production of its initial model ESL57, QUAD Musikwiedergabe (their German representative at that time) took over the necessary tools to Germany. First they started manufacturing the major spare parts for this speaker, but soon the production was extended to virtually all parts of QUAD ESL’s which are not anymore in production in the UK.
Whilst technology has advanced rapidly, Quad’s philosophy has remained unchanged since 1936 – to bring you ‘the closest approach to the original sound’.
Above all, Quad products are about music reproduction. True high-fidelity is never overtly impressive, but creates a window on recordings through accuracy. True high-fidelity is never fatiguing or boring, but engaging and stimulating through realism.
