Product Description

Wharfedale Denton 85 Anniversary Speakers (Pair) in Walnut is a classic bookshelf dual-way design with elegantly hand-veneered cabinets in walnut with an inset front baffle and classic Tungsten cloth grille. It showcases the principles of founder Gilbert Briggs who made Wharfedale one of the most famous loudspeaker brands in the world by concentrating on quality and value for money.

Cutting-edge Performance

Beyond the conventional exterior, Denton 85th Anniversary fuses a mixture of traditional and latest advanced technology. The bass unit has an innovative woven Kevlar cone fixed on a rigid die-cast chassis and delivers a rich, detailed bass/midrange output with remarkable dynamic performance.

Advanced Engineering

Highs are processed by a woven soft dome treble unit with high flux ferrite magnet, engineered for smooth, detailed HF extension. Drive units are combined by a near-audible crossover resulting in a coherent, seamless musical output that is both engaging and natural in its rendition of any source material.

Denton 80 vs Denton 85

This 85th edition showcases latest advancements and further upgrades the already hugely impressive 80th Anniversary speaker. Available in the same finishes, the main difference is in the Denton 85 swapping out the 5" woven kevlar cone for a 6.5" variation of the same material and replacing the 1" textile tweeter for a soft dome design. The result is higher sensitivity to facilitate more demanding hifi components, better crossover and wider frequency spectrum.

Based on Original Denton

The original Denton was well known for its warm, rich and natural sounding character and the 85th Anniversary Edition retains that character but imbues it with an open, detailed performance that will entice you to explore your entire music collection

Press Reviews

  • '...If you just want to sit back, relax and listen, we can't think of a rival at this price point that will suit you better. With that smooth treble, a full bodied mid-range and a rich bass combine to delver an easy going sound that remains undemanding to listen to no matter how harsh the recording' (What Hi-Fi Magazine)
