Originally debuted in 1965 the new Lintons are back! To celebrate its history Wharfedale has released a new series of Heritage speakers. Introducing modern technology with a classic look will work with both contemporary and traditional style decor. The original principle was so to design a high speaker at an affordable price range and still stands the same today. Come down and have a listen to the rerelease of an iconic speaker.
The Linton makes use of its wide baﬄe by incorporating a large (by modern standards) bass driver with a 200mm Kevlar cone, mounted on a rigid, die-cast chassis. Above this sits a 135mm midrange driver, also sporting a woven Kevlar cone and housed within its own internal enclosure. Finally, a 25mm fabric-dome tweeter with a high-ﬂux ferrite magnet handles high frequencies.
The original Linton incarnations of the 1960s and 1970s were well known for their rich and natural sound quality; the new model retains these attributes but upgrades the performance in every department. Its bass is deep and well-deﬁned, its midrange clear and open, with free-breathing dynamics and an expansive scale that brings music to life. It is a sound you can dive into and lose yourself in, as you listen to album after album; a nostalgic nod to the past elevated to a level ﬁt for the future.
