Unleash the Power of AURA: Heritage, Innovation, and Unrivaled Performance
Welcome to the world of AURA, where Wharfedale's rich heritage meets groundbreaking innovation. Building upon our legacy of excellence, AURA speakers embody the perfect synergy of monitor-class audio transparency and an unparalleled level of musical enjoyment. Drawing inspiration from the esteemed Elysian research project, AURA showcases advanced features including the acclaimed Wharfedale AMT high-frequency transducer, glass fibre matrix midrange and bass cones, the revolutionary SLPP port system, and meticulously crafted multi-layer cabinets. Experience the perfect blend of heritage, innovation, and unrivaled performance with AURA. Redefine your audio journey today.
Wharfedale AMT High-Frequency Transducer
Unlike conventional dome or ribbon and planar diaphragms, the Wharfedale AMT high-frequency transducer offers exceptional clarity and transient response. Its unique folded diaphragm design, immersed in a powerful magnetic field, accurately reproduces pressure waves without the blurring effects caused by diaphragm mass. The result is treble detail and shimmering realism that enhances the harmonic overtones of voices and instruments.
Glass Fibre Matrix Cones
To complement the AMT transducer, the AURA loudspeakers utilize proprietary woven glass-fiber matrix diaphragms for the midrange and bass cones. These cones, terminated by high flexibility rubber surrounds, deliver transient accuracy and efficiency. The voice coils, immersed in high-flux magnetic fields, are controlled by copper-clad pole pieces to minimize distortion. Mounted on die-cast aluminum chassis, the low-distortion motor systems provide rigidity and precise transient response for exceptional audio performance.
The crossover is the heart of every loudspeaker, and Wharfedale's AURA series features a meticulously designed crossover that ensures seamless integration between drive units. By accurately dividing the frequency band and matching the acoustic performance of each driver, the AURA loudspeakers achieve a blend that is acoustically seamless. The crossovers are tested and evaluated for their acoustic transparency, and the bass and midrange/treble crossovers are laid out on separate PCBs to minimize electromagnetic interference. With hundreds of hours of fine-tuning using both advanced analysis and careful listening, the AURA speakers deliver a stunningly realistic musical experience.
Multi-layer Lacquered Cabinet
The AURA cabinets are not only a work of art but also engineered to optimize sound quality. Crafted with multiple layers of different woods, these cabinets reduce panel resonance below audibility, ensuring a clean audio output. The smooth curves of the cabinet help disperse sound without undesirable reflections, enhancing the overall listening experience. Available in Black, White, and Walnut real wood veneer, the AURA cabinets are beautifully lacquered and polished to add a touch of elegance to any room.
SLPP Reflex Design
Wharfedale's SLPP (Slot Loaded Profiled Port) bass reflex design, originating from a concept by Gilbert Briggs, provides enhanced bass performance in the AURA loudspeakers. The downward-facing port directs high-pressure, high-velocity airflow through a series of slot ports in the plinth, matching it more efficiently with the low air pressure in the room. This design reduces turbulence and improves the bass reflex system's overall efficiency. Combined with the low resonance of the bass units, the SLPP system delivers powerful and articulate bass extension down to the 30Hz region, faithfully reproducing the true acoustic power of musical performances.
