Wharfedale D300C Centre Speaker
The Wharfedale D300 Series is available from late September 2018. All speakers come in a choice of black, white, walnut and rosewood.

Wharfedale’s new D330 Series bursts preconceptions of how good a ‘budget’ speaker range can be. In the early 1980s, Wharfedale created the blueprint for modern ‘budget’ hi-fi speakerswhen it madethe first-ever Diamond –the classic entry point to high-fidelity sound.

Almost four decades on, Wharfedale again redefines the low-cost, high-performance speaker concept with an all-new range - the D300 Series.

The range consists of four models: two compact standmount speakers–the D310 and slightly larger D320 –and a floorstander called the D330. These are joined by a centre channel speaker for home cinemasystems, the D300C. The range will run concurrently with the existing Diamond 11 Series, attaining even lower price points. While the D300 models do not sport the curved cabinet sides of the Diamond 11 speakers, their modishly styled enclosures incorporate many similar technologies, re-designed and engineered specifically for this new range. The drive units and bass reflex system are especially noteworthy – no other speaker range delivers such high specifications at such low prices.

The D300 Series incorporates the most advanced drive unit systems ever seen in such an affordable loudspeaker range. For the bass/mid drivers, the latest generation of Wharfedale’s long-established wovenKevlar cones are bonded to a super-lightweight surround made ofhi-tech foamed polyether, delivering remarkable clarity, textureand musical expression.

These cones are driven by a super-long-throw voice coil motor system, enabling low-frequency linearity and accuracy that is exceptional for such low-cost loudspeakers. The use of a specially shaped one-piece pole plate fitted with a copper cap reducesinductance and controls the magnetic flux, ensuring low distortion throughthe critical midrange area. Oversized ceramic magnets – a technology pioneered by Wharfedale in the 1960s –ensure high sensitivity, smooth response and absolute control of cone movement over lower bass frequencies.

The driver assembly is mounted ina specially designed basket with a network of ribs to increase rigidity, thus improving transient impact. A large open area behind the cone reduces early reflections and allows the internal cabinet absorbent to do its work.

WFR™treble unit
Developed for theDiamond 11 Series and fine-tuned for the D300 range, Wharfedale’s WFR (Wide Frequency Response)tweeter incorporates its own ‘cabinet’ –a precisely shaped rear chamber damped with a fibre filling. An over-sized ceramic magnet, selected to give a smoother transition from midrange to high frequencies, is attached to a pole piece with copper cap for flux control. The pole piece is vented through to the rear chamber to achieve a low resonant frequency, ensuring excellent linearity and allowing the textile dome, sited within a dished waveguide, to contribute to a wonderfully lucid midrange as well as smooth, pure and richly defined high-frequency detail.
