About the Wharfedale LINTON Heritage

A modern take on an iconic speaker

Wharfedale has a distinguished history of creating high-fidelity loudspeakers that sound — and look — terrific. A prime example is the LINTON Heritage: a stand-mounted, three-way speaker that first arrived on the British hi-fi scene in the 1960s. The latest iteration of the LINTON retains the speaker's classic look, while sporting newly designed drivers that deliver superb sound.

The matching LINTON Stand (sold separately) offers a rock-solid foundation and ample storage space (shown in red mahogany).

Sparkling performance

Wharfedale is known worldwide for their natural, revealing, ultra-smooth sound. The LINTON Heritage is no exception, combining an 8" Kevlar® woofer with a 5" Kevlar midrange for rhythmic bass and rich, warm midrange. A 1" woven textile dome tweeter delivers clear, crisp highs.

For the best performance, I recommend driving this speaker with a quality power amp or integrated amplifier

Pair with the matching Linton stand

The LINTON's large cabinet doesn't fit on many traditional speaker stands. So, Wharfedale created a custom stand that ensures a sturdy, vibration-free foundation. I highly recommend using a pair of these stands with your LINTONs. 

You'll want to position the offset tweeter to the inside of the cabinet for the best stereo imaging. Check out my article on stereo speaker placement for additional positioning and setup tips.

Features

Three-Way Bookshelf Loudspeaker: The Wharfedale Linton is a three-way bookshelf loudspeaker which incorporates a 1" textile soft-dome tweeter, a 5" woven Kevelar midrange driver, and an 8" woven Kevlar bass woofer for a warm, rich, and natural sound. Finely tuned crossovers guarantee a smooth transition between the tweeter, midrange, and woofer with an enjoyable audible experience, both on and off-axis.

  • 1" Tweeter: High frequencies are handled by a 1" woven textile soft-dome tweeter with high flux ferrite magnet, engineered for smooth, detailed high frequency extension.
  • 5" Midrange: The 5" midrange driver features Wharfedale's innovative woven Kevlar mounted on a rigid die-cast chassis for crisp, clean midrange frequencies.
  • 8" Woofer: The 8" woofer also features Wharfedale's innovative woven Kevlar cone mounted on a rigid die-cast chassis for deep, accurate bass output with superb dynamic performance.

"Classic"-Style Bass Reflex Cabinet: The Wharfedale Linton features a "classic"-style bookshelf enclosure that is beautifully hand veneered in a Mahogany or Walnut finish. It features an inset front baffle and traditional black cloth grille. There are two rear-firing ports that aid in increasing efficiency and delivering bigger bass response.

Binding PostsTerminals: Each Linton bookshelf loudspeaker is equipped with a set of binding-post speaker terminals. The binding post terminals will accept bare wire (up to 10AWG), pin connectors, spade connectors, & banana plugs (single only).

Mounting & Placement Options: The Linton bookshelf loudspeaker can simply be mounted on a speaker stand (sold separately - see Accessories Tab) or other piece of furniture with a large, solid flat surface. Self-adhesive rubber pads are included to place on the bottom of the speaker to protect your mounting surface and provide greater stability. The rubber pads add approximately 0.375" to the overall height of the speaker.

  • Try to position the loudspeakers equidistant from one another and the main listening position.
  • The speakers should ideally be positioned so that the tweeters are roughly at ear level to a seated listener.
  • The speakers can be "toed" or angled (up to 30°) into the main listening position to control the soundstage or "sweet-spot".

Note: The Warfedale Linton does not include a bracket, keyhole slot, or threaded insert to wall-mount the speaker.

Thomas nailed it! The stands are sold separately and can be found here: www.crutchfield.com/p_336LNTSTWN/item.html

The stand is sold separately. The total price is about $1,500 for both speakers and stands. The stands are about as heavy as the speakers. Bought both. I use the speakers for both music and tv. When watching tv the speakers seem to disappear which is a 1st for me. The only down side is they don't do base very well and require a subwoofer. Otherwise is recommend both the speakers and stands for the sound and the furniture look.
