For your consideration Wharfedale LINTON Heritage 85th Anniversary Loudspeakers.

This set is from my personal collection. I have the original inner and outer boxes. They are in excellent condition and were purchased new. They were in use in my main listening room until recently. Local Pickup Only. They are beautiful speakers and they sound great. Current retail is $1499 without the stands, $1799 with the stands. I would rate them Mint, but they are pre-owned. The speakers are designed and built to be an identical set with the same serial number. This is a matching set. No disappointments with these speakers!


Description:

To celebrate its history, Wharfedale has established the Heritage Series recreations of famous models from its past, entirely re-engineered using contemporary techniques and materials. The latest loudspeaker to join this collection is the Linton.

The original Linton debuted in 1965 and the line continued in various iterations until the end of the 1970s. It was a classic model of its time, viewed as a serious hi-fi speaker but also relatively affordable. Its cabinet was substantial, big enough to hold three drive units including a good-sized bass unit, yet not overly unwieldy by the standards of the day.

The new Linton has a clear family resemblance. It, too, is a three-way standmount model – a rarity in the modern era – retaining similar proportions to the classic Linton models. Its wood-veneered cabinet has a vintage look, yet the standard of finish is distinctly contemporary.
