Wilson Benesch Omnium Loudspeaker (pair)
The Omnium is a celebration of the “modular design” that Wilson Benesch added to its design philosophy when it released the ground-breaking Odyssey Range in 2001. With each new design, the modular design approach builds upon the lessons of its predecessor. Like the Porsche 911, the Omnium is then not a singular design, but rather the latest evolution of a living lineage – more than 30-years of incremental improvement in the pursuit of genuine world-class audio reproduction. It is this heritage that can be seen to have honed every single detail of the new Omnium loudspeaker.
Omnium – from the Latin “of all”
The name Omnium was chosen in recognition of this landmark, the name means of all, and it is a reference to the heritage of three decades of research and development that has come before it. Whilst the Omnium references all that has come before it, it is also a product that marks the dawn of the next generation of materials technologies developed through a collaborative research and development project – SSUCHY.
The stepped features seen in the Omnium’s foot are a reference to its larger sibling the Eminence. Hewn in house by Wilson Benesch from a single billet of aluminum to reduce an 80kg solid billet of aluminum by more than half, to create a single 38kg Omnium loudspeaker foot. This formidable component governs over the energy above by way of the 14mm tie bolts that generate a metric ton of compressive pressure through the Omnium enclosure. This is the foundation, ground zero and arbiter of performance.
Omnium stands boldly as the industry-leading design in this market sector from the pioneers and leaders in composite loudspeaker design.
