Celebrating 9o years of bringing the world’s finest Loudspeakers to the world of home audio, today Wharfedale engineers continue the dictum of utilising technology where it truly matters to develop Loudspeakers that reveal the passion and excitement behind the musical performance.

Wharfedale believes that a connoisseur of sound would find the merest flow intolerable and with a connoisseur in mind. They have re-designed and built the new ‘Dovedale’. If you are such a listener. You will recognise the significance of – and then insist on possessing – the control. Performance and sheer quality are reflected in this fine speaker.

Manufactured by highly trained. Vastly experienced Loudspeaker experts at the headquarters of Wharfedale, in Huntingdon. Cambridgeshire – Dovedale is built in the home of British Hi-Fi.

The new Dovedale further exemplifies Wharfedale’s legacy in fine loudspeaker design and manufacturing: balancing fine craftsmanship, natural sound quality, and affordability inside a beautifully proportioned loudspeaker that has been bought in its millions right across the globe through its various incarnations.

Made In The UK

Dovedale signifies the reintroduction of the class and quality of British manufacturing to the Wharfedale brand portfolio.

Dovedale is built in the home of British Hi-Fi at Wharfedale’s UK headquarters in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire. Incorporating key manufacturing, assembly and finishing processes for specially selected products in addition to the R&D function already located there. A 9,000ft2 production facility has been added to the existing building, including a new anechoic chamber, making a total of 25,000ft2 of office, lab and manufacturing space. It is here that Dovedale is manufactured by highly trained, vastly experienced loudspeaker experts.


Three-way to Perfection

A three-way speaker in the classic Wharfedale tradition – beautifully hand veneered with an inset front baffle and traditional cloth grille.

Both the midrange unit and treble unit are offset on the front baffle to scatter reflections from the cabinet edges and provide superior focus of the stereo image, and the speakers are provided in handed pairs so that sonic images in the stereo sound field are always accurately placed. The speakers have been fine-tuned acoustically through hundreds of hours of listening tests with all manner of music to ensure the cabinet, crossover and drive units work together coherently and seamlessly.

Making A Stand

The Wharfedale Dovedale stand is custom designed in conjunction with Wharfedale’s Director of Acoustic Design, Peter Comeau. Every aspect is considered to create the perfect presentation of the Dovedale Heritage speaker.

Hand-made in the England, with robust British steel and a luxurious furniture-grade glass insert, the Dovedale stand reinforces the no-compromise approach in the ‘Made in the UK’ theme for the return of the Wharfedale Dovedale.

The design is based upon open frame made of carbon steel and furniture-grade glass inserts at the top and bottom. All bar one of the uprights are filled with damping material – the other allows for cable management ­­­– with four large stainless-steel spikes at the base. The stand ensures each speaker is positioned at the correct height, as well as reducing bass/floor interactions and providing stable and torsionally rigid support. The package is completed by a set of stainless-steel spike seats and a pair of handling gloves.
