Wharfedale’s new EVO 4.4 has grown out of the extensive research and development that produced the ELYSIAN flagship loudspeakers and borrows much of the technology involved in ELYSIAN.
The primary focus is on the AMT development resulting in a radically different way of reproducing high frequency detail efficiently and accurately. Similar cabinet technology to ELYSIAN provides a stable and solid foundation for the drive units with radiused edges to help integrate the driver output with the room acoustics. In addition the unique SLPP bass reflex system, as developed for ELYSIAN, is now incorporated in EVO 4.4.
The new EVO 4 represents the dawn of a new standard in hi-fi, from Wharfedale – the most famous name in British loudspeakers.
Following the concept of the best-selling EVO series that came before it, EVO 4 represents the evolution of adordable high-fidelity audio. More than just a new edition, EVO 4 also fuses the EVO concept with trickle down technology from the new flagship Wharfedale ELYSIAN series – and just like ELYSIAN, EVO 4 pushes the boundaries of technology and performance of speakers within this price class. From the cabinet design to the materials employed in its distinct design, EVO 4 stands head and shoulders above the competition.
Notably, the Wharfedale EVO 4 series employs a specially engineered AMT (Air Motion Transformer) transducer for its proprietary, silky smooth high frequency reproduction. By design, the AMT allows for a higher volume of air to be moved during performance than with a convention soft dome tweeter. This higher-pressure action, encouraged by the principles of AMT design, offers an improved point-source HF reproduction with lower distortion properties than conventional tweeters. This is evident in the stunning and sheer clarity of the musical performance of all of the EVO 4 series loudspeakers.
Taking strong elements from the Flagship ELYSIAN series, EVO 4 has groundbreaking research and design embedded in its DNA. A long history of class-leading speaker concepts coupled with new technological breakthroughs means this is genuinely an evolution of affordable hi-fi.
The EVO 4 cabinet is purpose-designed from the ground-up. Not just the sleek curves, which stand out from the competition, but the materials, composites, internal bracing and damping too, for instance. All of this ensures the sonic character is not compromised by aesthetic. Quite the opposite, in fact.
The AMT (Air Motion Transformer) high frequency transducer excels above any rival model within this class. The point-source replicating, high volume air movement results in lower distortion and higher accuracy in HF reproduction.
Articulate and accurate bass is perfected by the bi-directional weaved Kevlar cones – a material that is naturally self-damping to reduce and distribute resonances to virtually negligible levels. In addition, a fixed, profiled phase plug ensures smooth acoustic roll off, further aiding integration with the AMT HF unit and mid-range drivers found in the EVO 4.2 upwards.
As per the uncompromising workflow and standard of Wharfedale loudspeaker development, hundreds of hours of listening plus custom designed WHARFEDALE Computer Aided Optimisation technology allows for the fine tuning of the crossover, perfecting the combination of the driver selection for ultimate performance.
The EVO 4 series is refined to appeal to the audiophile and the home-theatre enthusiast alike. Offering supreme performance in tight spaces, with the compact EVO 4.1 and equally compact but 3-way design EVO 4.3, there is also the option of the indulgent extension of bass, volume and impact in the 3-way 4.2 or 4.4. The 4C offers enhanced clarity of dialogue in home-cinema applications while the 4S surround speakers immerse the user in a genuine theatre experience. Whichever model is considered, EVO 4 will exceed any expectation.
