The original Denton was well known for its warm, rich and natural sounding character and the 80th Anniversary Edition retains that character but imbues it with an open, detailed performance that will entice you to explore your whole music collection.
Wharfedale celebrates 80th anniversary with new Denton speaker
Wharfedale – founded in 1932 by Gilbert Briggs – is celebrating its
80th anniversary with the launch of a new version of its original Denton
Although the new model has the traditional looks of the original,
with a mahogany wood veneer finish to the chipboard cabinet and a
Tungsten cloth grille, Wharfedale says it's very different under the
bass unit features a woven Kevlar cone mounted on a rigid die-cast
chassis, while the high frequencies are handled by a woven textile
soft-dome tweeter with high flux ferrite magnet (rather than Neodymium).
Peter Comeau, head of acoustics at Wharfedale's parent company IAG,
says: "In voicing them, I had in mind the original Dentons, which
sounded musical but with a touch of warmth. The ferrite magnet tweeter
gives a cleaner, softer, smoother treble than Neodymium designs."

Balanced Veneered ‘Sandwich’ Cabinet Walls: The cabinet walls utilise Wharfedale’s unique ‘Sandwich’ construction of differing wood materials to improve panel resonance, reduce internal sound transmission and, aided by structural internal bracing, diminish coloration. The chosen veneers are balanced inside and out and are beautifully hand finished in Mahogany in the classic bookshelf tradition.
Inset Front Baffle: The front baffle is firmly locked into the cabinet by a deep inset. This contributes to the speaker’s traditional look and, more importantly, to its improved sound quality, as it reduces cabinet vibration and provides a stable platform for the drive units.
High Performance Bass/mid Unit: To make the most of the strong front baffle, the main drive unit chassis has been enhanced with a massive flange that is secured using six screws, thus improving its stability. The carefully designed surround of the woven Kevlar cone helps to yield a clean high-frequency acoustic roll-off thus enhancing the ability of the mid/bass unit and tweeter to work as a cohesive whole.
Low Profile Chassi；s: The Bass/mid unit features an open chassis structure to reduce reflection from rear cone movements, allowing air to move freely from the driver, which in turn results in an overall even response with very low distortion. Formed from injection-moulded alloy in a shape pioneered by Wharfedale, the chassis itself provides substantial damping of ring waves.
Rear-firing Twin Reflex Ports: The speaker’s twin reflex ports have been moved to the rear of the cabinet, to reduce the effects of audible distortion. These ports extend the bass to below 45Hz, contributing to an impressive sense of sonic scale.
Ferrite-Powered Treble Motor System: With the use of a high strength 70mm Ferrite magnet, the concentration of the magnetic field is directed precisely within the area of voice coil excursion for an ultra-linear performance. The mounting plate has a profiled cross-section to optimise the dispersion of high frequency sound so it integrates flawlessly with the bass/mid-range drivers and produces the fastest and most linear response possible.
Advanced Computer Modelled Crossover: Denton’s crossover is based upon phase-perfect Linkwitz-Riley filters, modelled in Wharfedale’s advanced crossover simulation software and then fine-tuned by ear to yield the traditional Wharfedale character of sound.
Traditional Front Grille: The front grille has been designed to ensure it has no adverse effect on the speaker’s performance. The cloth chosen for the grille not only emphasises the traditional look but also enhances the sonic performance.
Offset Bi-Wire Terminals: Utilising the same familiar offset terminal block as high-end Wharfedale speakers, the gold-plated contact areas and bridging strips allow firm connections with the best possible connectivity, whilst the offset pattern provides allowance for heavy duty cables and a wider range of cable connection options.
