Also the Wharfedale Evo2-10 shines with real wood. Correctly it shines but only if expressly so ordered the future owner, otherwise the box in Matt lacquer and environmentally correct wood surface feel comes along. That is whom to despicable, which orders light bird’s eye maple with piano lacquer. Which reached not quite the quality of Quad varnish in particular at the edges, should be but also harder to grind her body tapered towards the rear.

Inside it looks not quite so meticulously: the damping device too low – potential cause of the distortion problems to 400 hertz. The woven woofer membrane with the light and resilient Phaseplug got missed an inverse beading, but can not deny their relationship with the drivers of the Quad. With this, he shared also the little undulations in the a-kilohertz range in the AUDIO lab, swung for longer than the Quad 11L2.

Very sensitive, the Evo responded to lined content: despite piano lacquer piano recordings were “at the grave of Richard Wagner” (Peter Toth, COD) not their specialty, in Liszt’s she deported the attacks at an average altitude slightly queasy as the strings of the grand piano freely can swing. The Nubert NuWave 35 in direct comparison showed that with the body of the instrument all is well, significantly more toned the tremolos. But the Wharfedale in upper layers points well made, where they also effortlessly Sibilants, but remained well-balanced as the Quad, still knew to outline more precisely. In the bass, impressed the Evo especially at moderate volumes, sounded at the increasing turning on the regulator but also somewhat bulky, without the last draft. Their figure stressed especially width and depth, almost lovingly she took to the stage spaces, while the Nubert and the Heco rather came out the sharp appearance of the singer.
