Wharfedale EVO4.2 Bookshelf Speaker

Wharfedale



EVO4.2 Bookshelf Speaker

Wharfedale’s new EVO4 has grown out of the extensive research and development that produced the ELYSIAN flagship loudspeakers and borrows much of the technology involved in ELYSIAN.

The primary focus is on the AMT development resulting in a radically different way of reproducing high frequency detail efficiently and accurately. Similar cabinet technology to ELYSIAN provides a stable and solid foundation for the drive units with radiused edges to help integrate the driver output with the room acoustics. In addition the unique SLPP bass reflex system, as developed for ELYSIAN, is now incorporated in EVO4.



EVOLUTION BY DESIGN Taking strong elements from the Flagship ELYSIAN series, EVO4 has groundbreaking research and design embedded in its DNA. A long history of class-leading speaker concepts coupled with new technological breakthroughs means this is genuinely an evolution of affordable Hi-Fi.
BEAUTY WITH PURPOSE The EVO4 cabinet is purpose-designed from the ground-up. Not just the sleek curves, which stand out from the competition, but the materials, composites, internal bracing and damping too, for instance. All of this ensures the sonic character is not compromised by aesthetic. Quite the opposite, in fact.
AMT
The AMT (Air Motion Transformer) high frequency transducer excels above any rival model within this class. The point-source replicating, high volume air movement results in lower distortion and higher accuracy in HF reproduction.
ACCURACY Articulate and accurate bass is perfected by the bi-directional weaved Kevlar cones – a material that is naturally self-damping to reduce and distribute resonances to virtually negligible levels. In addition, a fixed, profiled phase plug ensures smooth acoustic roll off, further aiding integration with the AMT HF unit and mid-range drivers found in the EVO4.2 upwards.
FINELY TUNED As per the uncompromising workflow and standard of Wharfedale loudspeaker development, hundreds of hours of listening plus custom designed WHARFEDALE Computer Aided Optimisation technology allows for the fine tuning of the crossover, perfecting the combination of the driver selection for ultimate performance.
VERSATILE IN APPLICATION The EVO4 series is refined to appeal to the audiophile and the home-theatre enthusiast alike. Offering supreme performance in tight spaces, with the compact EVO4.1 and equally compact but 3-way design EVO4.3, there is also the option of the indulgent extension of bass, volume and impact in the 3-way 4.2 or 4.4. The 4C offers enhanced clarity of dialogue in home-cinema applications while the 4S surround speakers immerse the user in a genuine theatre experience. Whichever model is considered, EVO4 will exceed any expectation.
