Wharfedale Linton 3

1 9 7 1 1971
1 9 7 5 1975

Bigger shelf kind of bookshelf loudspeakers, siblings of the Denton 3.

Included in these acoustic suspensions were a long-throw spider 20cm bass paper cone with rubber surround and large 48,000Mx magnet, an acoustically sealed 10cm squawker, a 5cm tweeter with lightweight CAB cone (cellulosic Butyrate Acetate) and 9-element filter.

The back proudly hid its modern molded plastic terminals. The Linton 2 is a two way, the Linton 3 a three-way, previsibly.

With 20L of internal volume, 9kg apiece and a maximum of 20W of input power, the Linton 3 indeed was of the little shelf kind - but comfortable in imperial decor nevertheless.

Next up were the big Melton 2, the tall Triton 3 and the Dovedale 3 variant of the Denton 3 - all rather successful.
