- Elegant, Slim -Design Home Theater and Stereo Models Are Ideal for Custom Installation -

Sound Import, LLC, the exclusive U.S. distributor for the Wharfedale brand of dynamic loudspeakers, is offering Wharfedale's Achromatic Series loudspeakers, which combine striking, slim design with custom -installation -friendly features and newly developed drivers that are engineered to deliver superlative sound.

The Achromatic lineup includes two wall -mountable left/right/surround speakers (models WA -S1 and WA -S2); two wall -mountable center -channel speakers (WA -C2 and WA -C4); two floorstanding towers (the WA -T4 and WA -T8) and two powered subwoofers (models WA -8SB and WA -12SB). The loudspeakers are available individually, or as part of the Micro, Basik, Supro, L/C/R or Ultimo system packages for smaller, mid -sized and larger rooms. Prices range from $169 to $599 for individual speaker pairs and from $699 to $1,699 for system packages.

Achromatic Series loudspeakers are sleek and elegant, making them ideal for custom -installation, architectural and designer applications. All models have a stunning piano -black finish with soft leatherette accents. Their slim -profile design complements any flat -panel TV and home décor. The wall -mountable models can be installed either horizontally or vertically using their standard keyhole wall mounts.

"Achromatic" literally means "without coloration" - the sonic design goal of the Achromatic Series. To achieve their clear, neutral, yet expressive and detailed sound, Wharfedale developed new drivers exclusively for the Series. The compact yet powerful 3 -inch woofer/midrange driver features an inverted aluminum dome, along with a high -sensitivity, long -throw voice coil that is directly coupled to the edge of the dome via a butyl rubber surround.

The 1 -inch soft -dome tweeter utilizes a ferrofluid -cooled, copper -coated aluminum voice coil, to preserve subtle high -frequency nuances and avoid dynamic compression. The powered subwoofers employ composite -cone drivers in reflex -ported enclosures for maximum efficiency and bass output.

All the drivers are closely matched to their enclosures. As a result, crossovers with a minimum of parts can be used, resulting in greater sonic purity and smoother frequency response. The drivers and enclosures are also designed to provide more uniform in -room response and smooth dispersion over a wider listening area.

Unlike many loudspeakers, all Wharfedale models are designed and built completely in -house, from their drivers and internal components to their elegantly finished cabinets. This vertical integration enables Wharfedale to have complete design control over every aspect of every loudspeaker, and ensure unit -to -unit consistency. In addition, the company can manufacture superior -performance loudspeakers at attractive price points and employ materials and techniques that are unavailable to other companies.
Wharfedale Achromatic Series loudspeakers are now available in the U.S.
