Wilson Benesch A.C.T speakers?

I'm not been able to audition them, has anyone heard or have a opinion on the Wilson Benesch ACT, which are rate as Editor's Choice, in the UK magazine HI-FI Choice.

Thanks, tomer
I have the new ACT. bought about two weeks ago. I have B&w 803. Audition SF Cremonas with my gears. Chance to hear SF Amati at a local shop. If I have to rank all four I would rank them as follow: 803, Cremona, Amati, ACT. The Amati is gorgously built, excellent clarity, wide sound stage, but poorly lack of bass for my taste. Cremona has better bass, good clarity and soundstage but didn't impress me too much. 803 is a step below of the cremona in all aspects. The ACT has the clarity of the amati with powerful and clear bass like the wilson watt puppy 7 ( so People have told me.) I am very happy with them. You should read about making of the new ACT and listen to them before deciding on anything. They also sounded great in surround movies system due to the clarity and bass capability. My electronics are Mark Levison 434 monoamps, Musical Fidelity 308 pre-amp, Music Fidel Trivista Sacd/Cd player. Nordost SPM inter-connect, and Cardas Golden Cross bi-wire speaker cables. I really like the Cardas with the ACT.because it is very musical and I can listen for hours. I have to admit, I haven't really listen to most of the high end speakers so my experience is limited but I do read alot on all of the publication magazine on the stand of Barnes and Noble. Any one with any input regading Wilson Benesch ACT or in general please post your opinion as Wilson Benesch is not widely known or popularize like other brands.

I am not sure if they were the act speakers, but at montreal son+image they had a pair of their speakers in an all analog setup that sounded very good. Refined and tight sounding, wide soundstage and great separation of instruments.
I heard the Curves a few months ago while demoing a cdp. They are great speakers. They are as Wrtickle described above. After I am done moving, Wilson Benesch is at the top of my list for new speakers.

I am building an audiophile-class home theater and came across the WB speakers at a dealer (AudioVisions) in San Francisco. I was originally going with 802s (I currently have 803s in another room), but was blow away by the WB ACTs. So, I have procured a 7 channel WB and SimAudio Moon (amp) system which consists of 2 WB ACTs for main, 1 Centre for center and 4 ARCs for surround. The SimAudio Moon amps seemed to match them very well at the dealer. I went with 2 400watt W6 monoblocks for the mains and a 5-channel Titan for the other speakers. M

y dealer is also recommending Cardas cabling. Originally, I was going with Kimber, but my dealer (who of course sells them), claims that Cardas is a better match for the WB/Moon combo. Cardas seems to make several different cables. Is the Golden Cross biwire that you describe the best for the mains? I have a very long run for the center and don't want to spend significant $$ for that run. I suppose that matching the center with another lower-cost Cardas would be appropriate. Would this make sense to you? If so, which cable? For the 4 surrounds, I have already bought Kimber 8TC. Probably less critical to match cabling with these. What do you think?

The speakers in the analog room in Mtl. were the Curves. The ACTs were in another room with the Audio Aero Prestige SACD player and A.A. Capitole amplifier. (Wow!)

pretty good system, but you might want to dump the unshieleded Nordost interconnects for some more Golden Cross interconnects (or any better quality shielded interconnect)
If you've only has the ACTs for two weeks, they're not even broken-in yet!! They'll get even better.... (unless they were broken-in demos...?)

The Wilson Benesch site says they'll be at the Stereophile show in New York City this coming weekend...
just bought a pair of act 2 speakers, pairing with cary 300 se mono's and shanling sacd, tag avr32 processor. sound is fantastic but amps fail to drive properly at higher volumes so am upgrading. Build quality is by far the best i've come across - i went for these over the amatis
I had the new ACT's for about a month in my home while awaiting the WB Chimeras. They have fantastic resolution and tuneful fast base. I can't think of anything in the price range that is better. I bought the Chimeras only because of deeper base extension and a more realistic "presence" in a midsized room. See John Marks comments in stereophile.
