Heritage owners know it’s not about being retro but capturing the true essence of an era – the excellence of its music, its art, its design. That’s why Wharfedale machines its rich history into the fabric of each Heritage piece, making every play iconic.
ALL IN THE BLOOD
Tired of speakers looking like scent diffusers? DENTON 85 represents one of the most iconic models in Wharfedale’s long history. By taping into its historic bloodline, today’s DENTON perfectly reflects your classic tastes.
DENTON DELIVERS YOU MORE
DENTON 85 features 25mm soft dome tweeters and 165mm woven kevlar bass drivers. Combined with an increased cabinet size, all-new DENTON delivers you improved high frequency extension with a more open, detailed performance.
A TASTE FOR THE TRUTH
Heritage is a quest for truth. So by using a sandwich construction method to scatter panel resonances causing audio colouration, DENTON helps you find the truth in your favourite recordings, not the signature of your speakers.
THEY’LL NEVER BELIEVE YOU
DENTON 85 is available in two breathtaking true-timber veneers, walnut & mahogany. Impeccably crafted and hand finished, there’s no question your friends will marvel, but they’ll never believe what you paid.
A CLASSIC REIMAGINING
Woven Kevlar replaces polymer cones, crossover design is computer aided & optimised, and mid/bass units are now reflex-loaded by twin rear ports. So the all-new DENTON 85 looks classic, but it meets all your contemporary music demands.
Modern slim speakers suffer from an audible thinning known as baffle step. Not big box speakers. So Wharfedale increased both DENTON 85’s baffle width and mid/bass driver size to give your music the impact it’s missing.
AUDIO COOKUP – GRILLE ON!
Asymmetrical speaker grille cutouts mitigate interference caused by cabinet-edge reflections found in traditional big-box speakers. So DENTON’s speaker grilles not only help maintain a low visual profile, they further improve your sound quality too.
AMP MATCHING MAGIC
Specific design elements, like woven Kevlar drivers and high-flux magnets, were chosen to ensure DENTON 85 sings with amplifiers as small as 20W per channel. Put plainly, DENTON 85 will run off the sniff of an oily rag.
