WHARFEDALE DENTON SPEAKERS, 85 Anniversary Edition are proudly presented by Wharfedale to mark the 85th Anniversary of one of the brand’s most famous and popular loudspeakers; the Denton.
Founder Gilbert Briggs turned Wharfedale into one of the most famous loudspeaker brands in the world by concentrating on quality and value for money.
The WHARFEDALE DENTON SPEAKERS exemplified these two edicts, balancing fine craftsmanship, natural sound quality and affordability inside a compact loudspeaker that was bought in its millions right across the globe. The original Denton went on to further other models based on its highly popular formula, the Denton 3 being the last of the line……until now!
Denton 85th Anniversary is a two-way speaker in the classic bookshelf tradition, beautifully hand veneered in Mahogany by Wharfedale cabinet makers with an inset front baffle and traditional Tungsten cloth grille. Underneath the traditional exterior, however, the WHARFEDALE DENTON SPEAKERS, 85th Anniversary is bang up to date and utilises a mixture of traditional and advanced technology, going down in the Great History of Wharfedale.
The bass unit features Wharfedale’s innovative woven Kevlar cone mounted on a rigid die-cast chassis, this combination delivering a rich, detailed bass/mid-range output with superb dynamic performance.
High frequencies are handled by a woven textile soft dome treble unit with high flux ferrite magnet, engineered for smooth, detailed HF extension. These drive units are combined by a highly researched crossover that is near inaudible to the listener, resulting in a coherent, seamless musical output that is both thrilling and natural in its rendition of any source material.
The original Denton was well known for its warm, rich and natural sounding character and the 85th Anniversary Edition retains that character but imbues it with an open, detailed performance that will entice you to explore your whole music collection. For an enhanced listening position, why not include a pair of WHARFEDALE SPEAKER STANDS.
