Heritage: A desirable trait that cannot be bought, falsified, or duplicated. Wharfedale's 80th Anniversary Edition Denton bookshelf loudspeaker celebrates tradition and honors the excellence of a company that continues to perform to the same exalted standards it did more than eight decades ago. Wharfedale has always been committed to serving you, the music lover. Renowned for its warm, inviting, and rich character, the Denton plays a big role in that history.
"There aren't many audio companies that have been around to celebrate 80 years in the business. But Wharfedale has marked that impressive milestone with the Denton stand mounters. These are immensely likeable. Their relaxed yet engaging sound has a lot of appeal. They're fully capable of delivering a large slice of sonic heaven [and] we can't think of a rival at this price that will suit you better!"
– What Hi-Fi?, four-star review
Multiple enhancements, along with the strong tie to one of the finest legacy's in audio, ensure music lovers of all stripes will want this model. The bass unit boasts a standard-setting woven Kevlar cone mounted on a ridged die-cast chassis, while the drive units are paired with a meticulous crossover to achieve seamless balance and performance. Denton's cabinet walls utilize Wharfedale's distinguished sandwich wood construction, leading to improved panel resonance, decreased internal vibrations, and diminished colorations. The end result: An alluring compact loudspeaker that fuses utmost craftsmanship, pure sonics, and incredible value. Wharfedale wouldn't have it any other way.

"The Dentons never give the impression they are [emphasizing] one part of the music to the detriment of another yet still manage to avoid sounding overly dry and clinical. Instead, they just make music sound fun...."
