The inspiration behind the Wharfedale Achromatic WA-S2 LCR loudspeaker stems from the very definition of achromatic: "Relating to, employing, or denoting lenses that transmit light without separating it into constituent colors." Applied to hi-fi audio, the term extends to purity and preservation of the original signal without any added intonation. When it comes to loudspeakers, few--if any--traits are more important let alone difficult to achieve.
Achromatic WA-S2 accomplishes this feat and more, the three-way design able to serve as the left, right, or center channel and integrate into any audio/video system. Its secret? An aluminum inverted-dome drive unit accompanied by a high-sensitivity voice coil team up to deliver immaculate sound. In addition, line-arrays of three-inch drivers enhance bass extension, ensure accuracy, proffer rich, full, powerful playback, and effortless integration. The small form factor and classy looks mirror the speaker's modern functionality.
Indeed, what's inside matters. The result of years of research and development, Achromatic WA-S2 boasts a plethora of design elements that enhance the realism of music and film reproduction. An audiophile-caliber suspension unit provides damping and a large, high-gauss ferrite magnet system supplies exceptional drive to reproduce even the most dynamic transients. Cooled with ferrofluid to maintain a constant operating temperature and avoid thermal compression, the 25mm soft-dome tweeter is capable of a resolution well beyond 20kHz--a level far above the upper threshold of human hearing. You--and your pets--will be grateful.
