Entry-Level Audiophile Sound on a Thrift-Store Budget: Wharfedale Crystal CR 4.2 Bookshelf Loudspeaker Delivers on Music and Movies Via Five-Inch Kevlar Driver and Soft-Dome Tweeter

Genuine entry-level high-end sound on a thrift-store budget? It's now a reality with the Wharfedale Crystal CR 4.2 bookshelf loudspeaker, an easy-to-drive price-to-performance leader that delivers sensory-engaging sound even in larger rooms. Equipped with a heavy-duty five-inch woven Kevlar midrange driver and one-inch soft-dome tweeter, CR 4.2 provides aural thrills from music and movies with equal aplomb. You'll enjoy warm, rich bass, clear highs, and involving mids – the area where most sound exists. CR 4.2 also comes engineered to mate with a stunningly wide array of electronics so you can enjoy seamless, hassle-free playback.

We know what you're wondering: How can a speaker the size and cost of CR 4.2 honestly be that good? The answer lies with Wharfedale's 85-year-plus history with loudspeaker design. Few audio companies match the British manufacturer's longevity and expertise that, when combined with its in-house manufacturing, allow for the use of trickle-down technology and premium components in even its modestly priced products. CR 4.2 personifies this approach and touts Wharfedale's signature woven Kevlar cones for superior strength and natural reproduction. And its soft-dome tweeter creates smooth high frequencies that let you hear detailed, balanced sonics whether you're enjoying a film or favorite song.

Experienced as a dedicated stereo pair or used with other loudspeakers in Crystal 4 Series to form a stunningly affordable home-theater setup, CR 4.2 helps redefine what's now possible from an affordable entry-level high-end speaker. So, what are you waiting for? Make music come alive in the space of your choice or assemble a surround system with CR 4.2. Our 100% Music Direct Guarantee ensures your satisfaction.
