THE SINGLE MALT

BRITISH AUDIO ROYALTY
We combined Wharfedale’s 85th Anniversary LINTON loudspeakers with LEAK’s STEREO 130 integrated amplifier to create a contemporary HiFi system with traditional design features. And the result is a modern classic music system for the audio connoisseur.
Items included in the pack:
Wharfedale LINTON Heritage
LEAK Stereo 130
- Pair of 3m QED Speaker Cable with Airloc Mini Connectors
- OPTIONAL LEAK CDT
Wharfedale LINTON Heritage
With the look and feel of yesteryear but the engineering of today, there's nothing else really like the Wharfedale LINTON Heritage (outside of its little brother the Denton 85s that is). These speakers have a relaxed and laid back sound that lets you listen to them for hours and hours without feeling fatigued no matter how heavy the music. To complete the vintage look the LINTON even comes with dedicated speaker stands that are designed to hold your favorite records, the perfect home for those you keep in high rotation. These speakers really do sound every bit as classic as they look.
QUALITY COMES IN THREES
This traditional 3-way standmount design features a 200mm bass driver, 135mm midrange driver, and a 25mm soft dome tweeter. With room-filling power and exquisite detail, LINTON’s holy trinity promises to resurrect your passion for music.
YOUR FINEST VINTAGE ON DISPLAY
LINTON stands not only position each speaker at the perfect listening height, they’re also uniquely designed to store your 12” vinyl records, making Single Malt the best way to display your favourite vintage.
THE POWER TO COMPELL
With 45W of class A/B amplification powering twin big-box 3-way standmount loudspeakers, Single Malt is a robust music system designed to make room-filling statements in small, medium and large listening environments.
LEAK Stereo 130
LEAK combines its renowned 20th century art-deco styling with today’s most advanced audio technologies to deliver timeless style with modern talent. If you are looking for the best of both worlds when it comes to aesthetics and sound the LEAK Stereo 130 is hard to beat.
STEREO MADE SIMPLE
With inbuilt Bluetooth, complimentary speaker cable, and an easy-to-follow setup instruction video, the last music system that you’ll ever purchase includes everything you need to play straight from the box.
MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN
Matching walnut veneers make Single Malt a breathtaking furniture piece for your home. In addition, LEAK’s attack is the ideal complement to LINTON’s more refined audio signature. So, you get a detailed yet fatigue-free system you can sit with for hours.
FEELS LIKE MUSIC.
With the texture of real timber and the sensory touch of classic jog dials, Single Malt is a traditional and therefore tactile music experience. It feels like HiFi. Because music should physically move you.
PUTTING CONTEMPORARY IN CLASSIC
Single Malt is iconic by design but bang up-to-date technologically. With the acclaimed ESS Sabre 32 Reference DAC (384kHz PCM & DSD256), USB, Optical, Coaxial and Bluetooth with aptX, STEREO 130 delivers you exquisite digital performances.
