Wharfedale Intros New Line of Home Speakers

warf-jade-0914British-owned Wharfedale will launch three new product lines at CEDIA: the Jade 3 loudspeakers, the Jade Subwoofers and a value-priced Diamond 10 Series loudspeakers.

Wharfedale’s Jade 3 loudspeakers (list at $1,499 – $1,799 per pair depending on finish) combine furniture-grade construction and finishes with the company’s latest acoustic engineering and materials technologies. They’re available in Black Oak, Vintage Cherry, Rosewood and Piano Black to match any décor. The speakers’ enclosures are constructed from Crystalam, formed from laminated wood and composites to combine structural and sonic integrity with a striking contoured appearance. The midrange drivers and woofers are constructed using Acufiber glass/carbon fiber material interwoven with a self-damping matrix for exceptional purity and responsiveness. The Jade Series’ aluminum-dome tweeter extends beyond the range of human hearing for extraordinary musical detail and smoothness.

The new Jade 10 and Jade 8 subwoofers feature a dual-woofer arrangement that mounts the drivers opposite each other to reinforce each other’s performance. Combine the Jade 10 or Jade 8 (list at $1,599 and $1,199 respectively) with the Jade 3 for a home theater sound system.

The Wharfedale Diamond 10.1 and 10.2 compact loudspeakers (list at $349/pair and $449/pair respectively) are designed for customers who want a low-fi sound. Wharfedale Diamond 10 Series woofers employ premium components including a woven Kevlar cone (a material not usually found in speakers at its price point), and a neodymium-magnet soft-dome tweeter for smooth high-frequency response. The 10.1 and 10.2 are available in a choice of stunning finishes including Black, Cherry and Rosewood.

Here are all the specs.
