The Denton 80th Anniversary Edition is a two-way speaker in the classic bookshelf tradition, hand veneered in mahogany by Wharfedaleʼs cabinet makers with an inset front baffle and traditional tungsten grey cloth grille.

The bass unit features Wharfedaleʼs woven Kevlar cone mounted on a rigid die-cast chassis. High frequencies are handled by a woven textile soft dome tweeter with a high-flux ferrite magnet, “engineered for smooth, detailed HF extension.”

“Iʼve always had tremendous admiration for the original Denton – itʼs one of the reasons I became a loudspeaker designer,” said Peter Comeau, Director of Acoustic Design at Wharfedaleʼs parent company IAG. “Reviving this famous speaker and remodelling it for modern-day music lovers has given me enormous pleasure. In voicing the new Denton I had in mind the original, which sounded musical but with a pleasing touch of warmth. The ferrite magnet tweeter gives a cleaner, smoother treble than Neodymium designs.”

Finished in a deep, rich mahogany wood veneer with a recommended retail price of £499.95 per pair, this very special loudspeaker is available from July in strictly limited quantity.
