Craftsmanship, Heritage, Value, and Quality Personified: Wharfedale Denton 85th Anniversary Bookshelf Loudspeakers Play with Extraordinary Naturalism, Smoothness, Bass, and Fullness
No bookshelf loudspeaker in Wharfedale's lineage claims a more vaunted slot than Denton. Originally devised 85 years ago to personify the British company's focus on value and quality, the bookshelf design went on to becoming one of the most popular speakers in audio history and ultimately spawned a series of successive models based on its engineering, appearance, and aural traits.
The legendary pedigree again bursts to life with the Denton 85th Anniversary Edition, a two-way bookshelf loudspeaker featuring a 6.5-inch woven Kevlar cone bass driver and one-inch soft-dome treble. Mounted on a rigid diecast chassis, the former produces rich, crisp, extraordinarily detailed midrange responsiveness marked by grand dynamics and tautly focused lows. Trust us when we tell you that you'll feel the punch and follow the bass lines. And each speaker's woven textile tweeter includes a high-flux ferrite magnet that accounts for smooth high-frequency performance and Wharfedale's signature warmth. A cutting-edge crossover results in ultra-coherent, seamless sonics that will spoil you with involving naturalism, presence, imaging, and fullness.
Denton 85th Anniversary Edition expands on the beloved original by also boasting an openness normally unassociated with speakers of this size or price. Intended to provide high-end sonics without any hassle, these bass-reflex speakers will blow you away with how big they sound and how deep their soundstages reach. And tube lovers will find plenty to rave about. Denton 85th Anniversary Edition sings when paired with valve gear.
We'd also be remiss if we didn't mention how gorgeous these speakers look. There's no vinyl or corner-cutting materials in sight. Showcasing a classic exterior marked by hand-veneered cabinets with an inset front baffle and traditional Tungsten cloth grille, Denton 85th Anniversary Edition exemplifies custom craftsmanship and worth. Exactly what Wharfedale's founders had in mind 85 years ago.
