OVERVIEW:

A design now inextricably linked to the Wilson Benesch brand, the original Discovery was a classic design with a legion of dedicated

followers the world over. In 2016, Wilson Benesch breathed new

life into this multi award-winning classic, announcing its return in

the Geometry Series.

 

A 2.5-way monitor loudspeaker, the principle drive unit topology

at the heart of the Discovery II remains a unique approach to

monitor loudspeaker design. It places the company’s Isobaric

Drive System, which is mounted in a clamshell formation directly

on the underside of the loudspeaker, in close proximity to the

Semisphere Tweeter and the dedicated Tactic II midrange drive

unit. This compact, highly optimised topology delivers a

thoroughly captivating soundstage, rich with dynamic, punchy

bass, which is perfectly integrated with the midrange and the high frequency band. The character of the sound produced by the

original design, won the hearts and minds of music lovers across

the globe, garnering an almost cult following. Now in 2016, the

design returns with even more power, more control and more

bandwidth.

 

Aesthetically, the Discovery II retains its proportions. However the classic, high-technology appearance of loudspeaker has evolved

into the modern era of Wilson Benesch design. Featuring a new

machine finished alloy baffle, that terminates at its top and

bottom extent into precision engineered CNC-machined alloy

plates. Geometry Series aesthetic cues are visible across the

design, but are most evident in the foot where the bevelled foot

plate is finished with adjustable hand-wheels - a design common

also to the A.C.T. One Evolution, Endeavour and Cardinal.

REVIEWS:

"Every Wilson Benesch product I’ve heard presents music with

startling clarity. It comes at you with blistering speed from a

velvety-black backdrop. Dynamics are incredible and the detailing always surprises and delights."

David Price, HIFI Choice Editor, April 2012
