Accuracy and balance in sound reproduction are just two of the most important factors a good hi-fi equipment should possess. Wharfedale’s Crystal 3 series is an entry-level loudspeaker series that can accurately reproduce clear, fluid sound in its most natural form. Built with a trapezoidal enclosure that disrupts the formation of regular standing waves inside the cabinet and enhances dispersion from the drive units to ensure that sound is spread throughout the room.
Wharfedale Crystal CR-30.4 Floorstanding Speaker – Pair
Trapezoidal Enclosure (TE)
Crystal 3’s non-parallel sides disrupt the formation of regular standing waves inside the cabinet, reducing the ‘boomy’ and ‘wooden’ sounds that plague conventional speakers. The front enhances the dispersion from the drive units ensuring that the sound is spread throughout the room so that all listeners can appreciate the musical qualities of the Crystal 3 loudspeakers no matter where they are seated.
Crystal 3 bass and midrange drive units utilize a natural fibre cone made in our own factory to a precise formula and then specially surface treated to enhance midrange clarity. In the center of the cone is a phase plug that improves high frequency response and ensures seamless transfer of sound through the crossover region to the treble unit.
Here, high frequencies are output by a micro-fine textile dome located in the smooth curve of the front baffle with a profile specially matched to ensure accurate and extended frequency response beyond the limits of audibility. The resulting sonic output is smooth yet brightly detailed allowing you to hear the finesse of the rich overtones of instruments and vocals in a highly realistic fashion.
