Wilson Benesch’s new A.C.T. One Evolution P1 floorstanding loudspeaker introduces a revolutionary, patent protected, colored carbon fiber material to the high-end audio industry for the first time courtesy of Hypetex. The A.C.T. One Evolution P1 is the fifth iteration of Wilson Benesch’s iconic A.C.T. design, dating back almost 30-years to the first A.C.T. loudspeaker. The new A.C.T. One Evolution P1 has been re-engineered from the ground up. Impeccable design and flawless craftsmanship can be observed throughout the A.C.T. One Evolution P1, from the choice of materials, to the use of geometric forms within componentry and in the intelligent design of the critical drive technologies. The result is a highly evolved, consumer loudspeaker, with optimal acoustic performance.

"The first A.C.T. loudspeaker the company produced back in 1992, was in fact the first high-end audio loudspeaker design in the world to deploy a curved carbon fiber composite panel. Since then the A.C.T. design has become a signature loudspeaker of our brand that evolves iteratively with each new product line. To this end the A.C.T. One Evolution P1 is a beautifully executed addition to this heritage, it denotes not only an evolution of the design in terms of its drive unit array, but also its patent protected colored carbon fiber finish is a bold design statement that underlines the company’s position at the forefront of the application of this materials technology", says Design Director for Wilson Benesch Craig Milnes.

"Wilson Benesch has collected product awards from all corners of the globe, but the company won the CES Innovation Award in 1997 and again in 1998 for the very first A.C.T. One loudspeaker. 20-years on, the A.C.T. One Evolution P1 represents the current state-of-the-art in Wilson Benesch design, so receiving the CES Innovation Award 2017 is an acknowledgement of our continued leadership in sound innovation”, says Managing Director for Wilson Benesch Christina Milnes.
The prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), the producer of the CES 2017, the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technology, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.
