Naturalism, Smoothness, and Clarity Pair With a Gorgeous Seven-Layer Finish: Wharfedale Reva-1 Bookshelf Loudspeakers Feature Newly Developed Drivers, Crossovers, and Cabinets for Great Sound
The Wharfedale Reva-1 bookshelf loudspeaker proves advanced acoustic technology and from-the-ground-up design matter to every note you hear. Featuring excellent tonal accuracy, refined richness, and airy openness, Reva-1 plays music with an uncanny combination of naturalism, detail, smoothness, and dynamics that mirrors the qualities of its luxurious appearance. Hand-finished with seven layers of piano-gloss lacquer, the two-way Reva-1 pulls you into the performance by way of its articulate voicing, stellar frequency responsiveness, and unwavering clarity. Wharfedale's hallmark slot-loaded port serves a technical purpose by removing distortion as well as increasing the speaker's energy and efficiency. But the port also plays a practical role by allowing you greater freedom of placement. Reva-1 can be placed very close to a wall and still sound fantastic. If you're challenged with speaker positioning and/or space issues, Reva-1 is a brilliant solution. And everything is built to a spec that exceeds Reva-1's modest price point.
Akin to the entire Reva line, Reva-1 features newly developed drivers, crossovers, and cabinets manufactured in a vertically integrated environment to ensure perfect matching and synergistic operation. Its bass driver utilizes proprietary self-damping glass-fiber cones that remove resonance and yield enhanced transparency and precision. Wharfedale also innovated a brand-new tweeter with a neodymium magnet and fitted with a finned heatsink to dramatically decrease dynamic compression. A dished waveguide widens dispersion, while a cutting-edge crossover utilizing Linkwitz-Riley slopes – and subsequently fined-tuned with CAD techniques and hundreds of listening sessions – results in stellar cohesiveness. Wharfedale rounds off Reva-1 with triple-layer construction borrowed from the acclaimed Diamond 200 Series. Here, substantial internal bracing and attractively curved side walls simultaneously furnish strength and eliminate coloration. Wharfedale's five-year warranty on non-powered parts and Music Direct's 100% Money-Back Guarantee take care of the rest.
