Wharfedale Linton speakers are among the most iconic models in Wharfedale’s long history of loudspeakers. Like the recent release of Denton 85, this latest Linton model follows in the trend for updated versions of classic designs. Retaining the classic sound of the original with updated drivers, crossovers and reworked cabinets, these are beautiful speakers and an enticing alternative to more modern options.
Linton embodies the brand’s pioneering research through the 60s, 70s and 80s. With a heritage dating back to 1965, Linton was manufactured in accordance with the principles of quality and value for money.
The new version of Wharfedale Linton reinforces these principles balancing high craftsmanship, lifelike sound quality and affordability within an elegantly shaped speaker whose various incarnations have sold in millions across the globe.
Linton exploits its wide baffle by employing a bass driver with a 200mm Kevlar cone that is larger than most modern drivers mounted on a sturdy die-cast chassis. A 135mm midrange driver sits above this and supports a woven kevlar cone housed within its own internal enclosure. To finish, a 25mm fabric-dome tweeter is employed featuring high-flux ferrite magnet to handle high frequencies.
The new Linton preserves the rich, warm and realistic sound that the original Linton was renowned for while infusing it with space and detail that entices you to explore your entire music collection again.
