Wharfedale Reva-2 Bookshelf Loudspeakers
Stellar-Sounding Wharfedale Reva-2 Plays With Liveliness, Dynamics, Detail, and Openness and Can Be Placed Near Walls: Pictures Cannot Do These Gorgeous Bookshelf Loudspeakers Justice
Offering excellent performance in spaces off-limits to most bookshelf loudspeakers and packing a memorable punch for its size, Wharfedale Reva-2 gives you ample options and audiophile sonics – a much-sought-after combination any listener would want. First and foremost, Reva-2 plays music with involving liveliness, dynamics, and openness. This beautiful two-way speaker specializes in clarity, accuracy, and openness. Outfitted with a 4.92-inch glass-fiber bass driver and one-inch textile dome treble driver, Reva-2 boasts outstanding bandwidth and smooth responsiveness. And it sounds great even when placed near room boundaries – like walls. Wharfedale accomplishes this feat via a signature slot-loaded port, which increases the energy and efficiency while simultaneously removing distortion associated with most rear-ported speakers. Plus, Reva-2 looks great while doing the heavy lifting. Hand-finished with seven layers of piano-gloss lacquer, it would be comfortable in even the most luxurious of homes. Pictures cannot do it justice. It's also loaded with cutting-edge components and materials to deliver optimal results.
Newly developed drivers, crossovers, and cabinets manufactured in a vertically integrated environment ensure perfect matching and synergistic operation. Reva-2's bass driver utilizes proprietary self-damping glass-fiber cones that remove resonance and yield enhanced transparency and precision. Wharfedale also produced a brand-new tweeter distinguished by a neodymium magnet and fitted with a finned heatsink to dramatically decrease dynamic compression. A dished waveguide widens dispersion, while a cutting-edge crossover utilizing Linkwitz-Riley slopes – and later fined-tuned with CAD techniques and hundreds of listening sessions – yields sonorous cohesiveness. Triple-layer construction, whereby substantial internal bracing and attractively curved side walls simultaneously furnish strength and eliminate coloration, speaks to the high-end build quality. Wharfedale's generous warranty take care of the rest.
