The name Wharfedale represents nearly a century of hi-fi innovation.

Gilbert Briggs ca. 1950

In 1932, Gilbert Briggs built his very first loudspeaker in the cellar of his home in Ilkley, Yorkshire, a sleepy little market town located in the valley of the river “Wharfe”; an area known to this day as ‘Wharfedale’.  This unlikely location would see the birth of a brand that was to become recognized all over the world, and one that is synonymous with quality in high fidelity reproduction.

Gilbert Briggs is still much admired and respected throughout the world for his pioneering work in hi-fi reproduction and his endless pursuit of better sound quality, which was driven by his love of live music.   Mr. Briggs has been referred to by many as the “father of hi-fi” for his pioneering work in the field.

By 1936, Mr. Briggs’ company had outgrown its small premises and moved to a larger factory in Bradford.  When the war came, the factory continued production, and during the second half of the war, the Wharfedale Wireless Works was commissioned to make transformers for Marconi.  Some 40,000 units were completed by an expert staff of just twenty people before the war finally came to an end.

In the post-WWII era, Wharfedale’s expertise in loudspeaker design, as well as their reputation, continued to grow.  Wharfedale remained on the leading edge of technological advancement during this period, and continued to grow their popularity in both the consumer and professional loudspeaker markets.

Now, with more than 75 years of setting the standards for perfecting loudspeaker performance, the most advanced research and development program, and the most integrated and thorough manufacturing and quality control process in the industry, Wharfedale, in order to remain at the forefront of audio, now has a dedicated 1.5 million square foot manufacturing operation in which every single part and manufacturing step is performed in-house.  This makes the design of any new loudspeaker an acoustic engineer’s dream.  Instead of having to use off-the-shelf components from a catalog as most other purported ‘hi-fi’ companies choose to, Wharfedale is able to build a complete product, from engineering and design to parts manufacturing to assembly, to achieve a harmony in performance and balance.

Wharfedale offers a wide range of loudspeakers, including everything from home theater loudspeaker systems to audiophile-grade subwoofers, models that pay homage to the company’s heritage, to high performance bookshelf and floor standing models.

Wharfedale loudspeakers are not available for purchase through our Online Store.  They are available in our showrooms and can also be purchased by telephone.  Osage Audio Products is authorized to sell Wharfedale throughout the United States.
