— Elegant, Slim-Design Home Theater and Stereo Models Are Ideal for Custom Installation —

Sound Import, LLC, the exclusive U.S. distributor for the Wharfedale brand of dynamic loudspeakers, is offering Wharfedale’s Achromatic Series loudspeakers, which combine striking, slim design with custom-installation-friendly features and newly developed drivers that are engineered to deliver superlative sound.

The Achromatic lineup includes two wall-mountable left/right/surround speakers (models WA-S1 and WA-S2); two wall-mountable center-channel speakers (WA-C2 and WA-C4); two floorstanding towers (the WA-T4 and WA-T8) and two powered subwoofers (models WA-8SB and WA-12SB). The loudspeakers are available individually, or as part of the Micro, Basik, Supro, L/C/R or Ultimo system packages for smaller, mid-sized and larger rooms. Prices range from $169 to $599 for individual speaker pairs and from $699 to $1,699 for system packages.

Achromatic Series loudspeakers are sleek and elegant, making them ideal for custom-installation, architectural and designer applications. All models have a stunning piano-black finish with soft leatherette accents. Their slim-profile design complements any flat-panel TV and home décor. The wall-mountable models can be installed either horizontally or vertically using their standard keyhole wall mounts.

“Achromatic? literally means “without coloration? — the sonic design goal of the Achromatic Series. To achieve their clear, neutral, yet expressive and detailed sound, Wharfedale developed new drivers exclusively for the Series. The compact yet powerful 3-inch woofer/midrange driver features an inverted aluminum dome, along with a high-sensitivity, long-throw voice coil that is directly coupled to the edge of the dome via a butyl rubber surround.

The 1-inch soft-dome tweeter utilizes a ferrofluid-cooled, copper-coated aluminum voice coil, to preserve subtle high-frequency nuances and avoid dynamic compression. The powered subwoofers employ composite-cone drivers in reflex-ported enclosures for maximum efficiency and bass output.

All the drivers are closely matched to their enclosures. As a result, crossovers with a minimum of parts can be used, resulting in greater sonic purity and smoother frequency response. The drivers and enclosures are also designed to provide more uniform in-room response and smooth dispersion over a wider listening area.

Unlike many loudspeakers, all Wharfedale models are designed and built completely in-house, from their drivers and internal components to their elegantly finished cabinets. This vertical integration enables Wharfedale to have complete design control over every aspect of every loudspeaker, and ensure unit-to-unit consistency. In addition, the company can manufacture superior-performance loudspeakers at attractive price points and employ materials and techniques that are unavailable to other companies.
Wharfedale Achromatic Series loudspeakers are now available in the U.S.
