Wharfedale’s new EVO 4 has grown out of the extensive research & development that produced the Elysian flagship loudspeakers & borrows much of the technology involved in Elysian. Free shipping ( to Continental US only! )
Step up to the unmistakably rich, colorful sound of Wharfedale with EVO 4.4, the latest overachieving tower loudspeaker from the iconic U.K.-based manufacturer. Sitting in a class just above Wharfedale's highly praised Diamond 11 Series, EVO 4.4 employs trickle-down innovations from the company's Elysian flagship. If you get just one dose of its seductively sweet, grain-free handling of upper-register material and you'll agree EVO 4.4 is downright addictive. Couple that with deep, articulate bass and a punchy midrange, and you have an extremely affordable three-way unit deserving of its high-end label.
One of the keys to the outstanding sonic performance relates to EVO 4.4's dual, 6.5-inch, bidirectional, black-woven Kevlar cone woofers. They incorporate a naturally self-damping material that reduces and distributes resonances to extremely low levels. In addition, a fixed, profiled phase plug ensures a smooth acoustic roll-off that enables the drivers to seamlessly mesh with EVO 4.4's specially designed Air Motion Transformer tweeter and two-inch silk midrange driver. You'll enjoy incredibly wide dispersion of high frequencies and palpable soundstaging.
EVO 4.4's crossover also deserves special mention. Using the company's custom-designed Computer Aided Optimization technology during extensive listening tests, Wharfedale engineers carefully fine-tuned the crossover to the point that EVO 4.4 achieves balanced integration of its driver, woofer, and tweeter – allowing the speaker to practically disappear and draw all attention to the music program at hand. Indeed, EVO 4.4 provides the detail audiophiles love and the effects-enhancing dynamics home-theater enthusiasts crave.
Measuring 41.7" x 10.1" x 14" ( H x W x D ) and weighing a shade over 56 pounds, EVO 4.4 fits in tight spaces all the while its 90 dB sensitivity means it can be driven by a wide range of amplifiers. All high-end speakers should be so versatile, engaging, and attractive.
"There's a real feeling that these speakers are digging deep into the recording and presenting that information in a honest way."
