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 d├ęcor. 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.
