Today Wharfedale is proud to present the 80th Anniversary Edition of one of the brand’s most famous and popular loudspeakers - the Denton.
Gilbert Briggs, who founded Wharfedale in 1932, turned the company into one of the most famous loudspeaker manufacturers in the world by concentrating on quality and value for money. The Wharfedale Denton 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 father other models based on its highly popular formula, the Denton 3 being the last of the line…
To mark Wharfedale’s 80th Anniversary, the brand is presenting an anniversary addition of one of its most popular loudspeakers, the Denton. The Denton 80th Anniversary is a classic, bookshelf two-way speaker. Beautifully crafted with hand veneered mahogany, an inset front baffle and traditional Tungsten cloth grille, the updated Denton is a classic update of the original speaker.
Underneath the exterior the Anniversary Edition is a perfect mixture of traditional and advanced technology. The bass unit features Wharfedale’s innovative woven Kevlar cone mounted on a rigid die cast chassis. The drive units are combined with a highly researched crossover that blends the drivers perfectly.
The original Denton was known for its warm, rich sound and the 80th Anniversary Edition manages to retain the original character while giving a more detailed, seamless performance. Wharfedale successfully combines its strong history and modern technology in perfect fusion in this Denton 80th Anniversary Edition.
Veritably a modern classic!
