Wharfedale Denton 85th Anniversary Bookshelf Speakers
Vintage is back and between a beautiful retro look and fantastic modern engineering there's nothing else really like the Wharefedale Denton 85 (outside of its big brother the LINTON Heritage that is). Don't be fooled by their bookshelf size, these speakers punch well above their weight in terms of volume with plenty of bass. High dynamics, a large sound stage, along with their warm sound make these speakers a vintage HiFi enthusiasts dream.
Denton 85th Anniversary is a two-way speaker in the classic bookshelf tradition, beautifully hand veneered in Mahogany by Wharfedale cabinet makers with an inset front baffle and traditional Tungsten cloth grille.
Underneath the traditional exterior, however, the Denton 85th Anniversary is bang up to date and utilises a mixture of traditional and advanced technology. The bass unit features Wharfedale’s innovative woven Kevlar cone mounted on a rigid die-cast chassis, this combination delivering a rich, detailed bass/midrange output with superb dynamic performance. High frequencies are handled by a woven textile soft dome treble unit with high flux ferrite magnet, engineered for smooth, detailed HF extension.
These drive units are combined by a highly researched crossover that is near inaudible to the listener, resulting in a coherent, seamless musical output that is both thrilling and natural in its rendition of any source material.
Leak Stereo 130
When LEAK launched the iconic STEREO 30 in 1963, it swiftly became Britain’s favorite ‘step-up’ from the standard budget amplifiers of the time.
Now, in the year 2020, LEAK harnesses the latest technology to deliver an affordable integrated amplifier of the same philosophy, the STEREO 130 – fully equipped to meet the demands of modern music lovers, from vinyl records to digital streaming.
The LEAK STEREO 130 is high performance, high-fidelity integrated amplifier for the modern-day audio enthusiast. It is designed to be the perfect match to a wide variety of both analogue and digital sources, thanks to its diversity of inputs. It has a built-in Moving Magnet (MM) phono pre-amplifier which allows for direct connection to turntable record players. You can also stream music to the LEAK STEREO 130 from any Bluetooth device such as portable music players and smartphones via innovative built-in aptX and AAC codec. One can enjoy CD quality audio over the Bluetooth wireless connection.
To accommodate the modern-day music enthusiast fully, much effort has been made to ensure the LEAK STEREO 130 ’s digital circuitry delivers the level of quality one might expect of a high-performance standalone D/A converter, let alone an integrated amplifier solution.
Carefully designed in line with the LEAK ethos of performance, reliability and craftsmanship, the LEAK STEREO 130 matches contemporary performance with stand-out, classic LEAK styling.
Pro-Ject X1 Turntable
Although it would be easy to think X1 is simply an updated version of the 1xpression, in reality however they are very different with nearly every aspect of X1 undertaking an upgrade.
The X1 is a more mature and authoritative listening experience, digging deeper into the music and offering greater space between the instruments, It really is a substantial upgrade! Pro-Ject should be applauded for all the upgrades whilst remaining competitively priced!
Pro-Ject‘s classic turntable design reimagined and lifted to new price/ performance heights!
In 1991 Pro-Ject started a revolution in HiFi with the introduction of the Pro-Ject 1 turntable. A new high-end, low budget turntable at a time when CD was king. Against all odds, we were creating interest in analogue audio at a time when others were turning their backs, and the success was only down to three critical philosophies:
– Simple yet technically correct design
– High-quality valuable materials
– Fully handcrafted, expert engineers, made in the EU
There are no fancy, unnecessary features; it was a strictly manual turntable design and all of these decisions resulted in unbelievable sound at a fantastic price. The X1 is based on the same concept as the P1 but improved in every aspect thanks to modern materials and new production methods.
