Wilson Benesch the Sheffield based Hifi manufacturer, has announced its new Precision Series loudspeaker line. In partnership with German importers IBEX Audio Gmbh, Wilson Benesch will introduce the P3.0 floorstanding loudspeaker at an event in Berlin, Germany today, Saturday 3rd November 2018.

The Precision Series sets a new benchmark within the entry point into the companies loudspeaker lines, retaining exotic high-performance technologies that have been developed by Wilson Benesch over three-decades.

Thanks to investment in manufacturing technology, the Precision Series, alike with the reference loudspeaker line, is created entirely in-house using a fleet of precision CNC-machines. As the company enters its 30th Anniversary year, it will deliver Precision Series loudspeakers to customers globally starting in the first quarter on 2019.

Wilson Benesch announced the latest generation of its high-frequency drive technology at the High End Munich 2018 Hifi Show in May. Precision Series now takes the principle elements of this design and distils them into its Leonardo tweeter.  The silk-dome tweeter resides at the centre of an additive manufactured carbon fibre composite Fibonacci Element. This design is a further extension of the original system developed for the Fibonacci tweeter that made its debut in the flagship, Eminence.

The Tactic II Drive unit has been collaboratively developed in partnership with Sheffield Hallam University, over several decades each and every aspect of the design has been modelled and analysed using FEA simulation. This third generation version builds upon time proven materials science that Wilson Benesch brought to the market out of the Government supported Bishop Research project. The Isotactic Polypropylene cone was collaboratively developed with Professor Ward FRS of Leeds University.

Materials science and of course enclosure systems have been a principal focus for Wilson Benesch since its inception and they have developed advanced composite systems based upon carbon fibre. In the Precision Series, it is deployed via two U-section aluminium elements that are used as anchor points, enabling high compressive forces to be applied to the elements sandwiched between. Pricing as follows, inclusive of VAT, premium finishes are available at an extra charge.

.P1.0, standmount loudspeaker plus stand, UK RRP £5,995
