Wharfedale Linton Speakers

The original Wharfedale Linton debuted in 1965, with the line continuing in various iterations until the end of the 1970s. The speaker was highly regarded in the hi-fi world, being viewed as a serious hi-fi speaker, with exceptional sound, while still being relatively affordable.

The new Linton, builds on the legacy of the original from 1965, with a 3-way standmount design, a high-quality wood-veneered cabinet and classic styling. Modern recreation has been entirely re-engineered using contemporary techniques and materials. With a 200mm Kevlar bass driver, mounted on a rigid die-cast chassis. Above it, a 135mm midrange driver, also sporting a woven Kevlar cone and housed within its own internal enclosure. Topped off with a 25mm fabric-dome tweeter.

Similarly to the original Linton, the modern reincarnation retains the rich, natural sound of the older speaker, while upgrading the performance in every department. The bass response is deep and well-defined, its midrange clear and open, with fantastic dynamics and an expansive sound, which brings music to life.

Finished in hand-matched wood veneers, the Linton looks as good as it sounds. When paired with the custom-made matching stands, the speakers look truly fantastic. Sited at the perfect height for a seated listener, the stand's rigid metal frame ensures dampening of unwanted vibrations, embellished with wood-veneered panels at the top and bottom to compliment the speakers. The design even provides space to store vinyl records within the stand.
