What Hifi test Wilson Benesch Precision P1.0 – In een prachtige test in What Hifi wordt de nieuwe Wilson Benesch Precision P1.0 uitgebreid geprezen.
Timing, diepte & gelaagdheid, coherentie, dynamiek, detail…In de klankbeschrijving worden alle bovengenoemde aspecten geroemd:
“These are compact speakers, so don’t expect to get the kind of bass that rattles your furniture. But they do well for their size, delivering lows that are taut and agile. We play Neneh Cherry’s Spit Three Times and the WBs deliver the song’s hard-driving bassline with gusto, each note reproduced with punch and texture.
We note the P1.0s’ surefooted sense of rhythm and their ability to separate each musical strand without losing sight of the whole. This is a cohesive, dramatic performance, but also one that keeps a firm grip on the subtleties, particularly in the way that they capture Cherry’s distinctive and passionate vocals.
We move to Dvorak’s New World Symphony and the Precisions sound right at home. Something this size will never get close to reproducing the full authority of an orchestra, but the P1.0s give it a try. They render an expansive soundstage populated with securely located instruments. It’s nicely layered, giving a fine sense of depth.
Things are convincing tonally, with the speakers sounding unusually even across the board. The integration between the drive units is seamless, helping to give the impressive musical cohesion we hear.
These speakers don’t shy away from large-scale dynamics either, punching out crescendos with enthusiasm and composure. At the same time they have the finesse to keep things interesting during the more low-key movements of the piece.
Cap it all off with an impressive ability to resolve low-level detail and the ability to organise it in a wholly musical manner, and you have a pair of speakers that set sky-high standards for the price.”
Timing, diepte & gelaagdheid, coherentie, dynamiek, detail…De conclusie is heel lovend:
“While the Precision P1.0s’ appearance split opinions among our review team, there is no such dissent when it come to performance. These are insightful and composed performers that work well across a wide range of musical genres. Give them a signal of appropriate quality and they won’t fail to impress.
