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 optimized 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.
