British loudspeakers have always enjoyed an excellent reputation around the world, and Wharfedale is perhaps the most famous brand of all. Stretching back to 1932, when Gilbert Briggs, Wharfedale’s founder, built his first speaker in the cellar of his Yorkshire home, Wharfedale has been responsible for some of the most important loudspeakers ever produced, introducing many techniques and technologies that became commonplace, such as the two-way loudspeaker (invented in 1945) and the use of ceramic magnets (pioneered in 1962).
In 2016, 84 years after the company was founded, Wharfedale continues its quest to deliver excellent sound at affordable prices. Its current range includes desktop, standmount and floorstanding speakers delivering superb ‘sound-per-pound’ performance, including the latest iteration of the famous Diamond line – still the classic entry point to high-fidelity sound.
