Wharfedale Aura CS Centre Speaker

At the heart of the Aura CS speaker is the impressive 27 x 90mm AMT (Air Motion Transformer) treble driver. This advanced technology sets it apart, offering pristine treble reproduction with a unique folded diaphragm design. This design, combined with immersion in a potent magnetic field, ensures that even the subtlest nuances of vocals are faithfully conveyed. Whether you're watching movies or enjoying music, the Aura CS excels in reproducing the human voice with remarkable clarity, enhancing your overall audio experience.

Complementing the treble driver are dual 5-inch Black Glass Fibre Matrix Cone bass drivers, providing robust and well-balanced midrange and bass frequencies. The carefully designed crossover ensures that these drivers work harmoniously together, resulting in a coherent and immersive soundstage. With a recommended amplifier power of 25-150W, an impedance of 8Ω, and a sensitivity of 88dB, the Aura CS is both efficient and versatile, making it a valuable addition to your home theatre setup. Its compact dimensions and elegant design further enhance its suitability for various room configurations, ensuring that it seamlessly integrates into your entertainment space. Overall, the Wharfedale Aura CS Centre Channel Speaker is a testament to audio excellence, offering a clear and dynamic audio presence that elevates your cinematic and audio experiences.

Wharfedale AMT High-Frequency Transducer

Differing from traditional dome or ribbon and planar diaphragms, the Wharfedale AMT high-frequency transducer stands out with its exceptional clarity and rapid transient response. Employing a distinctive folded diaphragm design immersed in a robust magnetic field, it faithfully reproduces pressure waves, eliminating the blurring effects often associated with diaphragm mass. The result is treble detail and an authentic sense of realism that enriches the harmonic nuances of vocals and musical instruments.

Glass Fibre Matrix Cones

To complement the AMT transducer, the AURA loudspeakers incorporate proprietary woven glass-fibre matrix diaphragms for the midrange and bass cones. These cones, equipped with high flexibility rubber surrounds, excel in delivering precise transient accuracy and efficiency. The voice coils, immersed within potent magnetic fields, are meticulously controlled by copper-clad pole pieces to minimise distortion. Mounted on die-cast aluminium chassis, these low-distortion motor systems provide rigidity and maintain precise transient response, ensuring exceptional audio performance.

AURA Crossover

At the core of every loudspeaker lies its crossover, and Wharfedale's AURA series showcases a painstakingly engineered crossover that ensures flawless integration between the drive units. By precisely dividing the frequency spectrum and aligning the acoustic performance of each driver, the AURA loudspeakers achieve a seamlessly blended sound. These crossovers undergo rigorous testing and evaluation for their acoustic transparency, with separate PCBs for the bass and midrange/treble crossovers to minimise electromagnetic interference. After extensive fine-tuning, employing advanced analysis and attentive listening, the AURA speakers deliver an astonishingly lifelike musical experience.

The cabinet

The AURA cabinets are a fusion of both artistry and engineering, meticulously crafted with multiple layers of distinct woods to minimise panel resonance to inaudible levels, ensuring pristine audio output. The gracefully curved cabinet design effectively disperses sound while mitigating undesirable reflections, elevating the overall listening experience. Available in Black, White, and Walnut real wood veneers, the AURA cabinets are meticulously lacquered and polished, adding a touch of sophistication to any room.

Slot Loaded Profiled Port

Wharfedale's SLPP (Slot Loaded Profiled Port) bass reflex design, inspired by Gilbert Briggs' concept, significantly enhances bass performance within the AURA loudspeakers. The downward-facing port intelligently channels high-pressure, high-velocity airflow through a series of slot ports in the plinth, efficiently aligning it with the lower air pressure in the room. This innovative design minimises turbulence, optimising the overall efficiency of the bass reflex system. Combined with the low resonance characteristics of the bass units, the SLPP system delivers commanding and articulate bass extension, accurately reproducing the acoustic power of musical performances down to the 30Hz range.
