About Wharfedale

Britain has long been recognised throughout the world as being the home of loudspeaker technology in terms of innovation and quality. This reputation has built up over many years by some of the world’s most famous loudspeaker manufacturers. Wharfedale, established by Gilbert Briggs in 1932 has always been at the forefront of developing this reputation. Gilbert Briggs built his very first loudspeaker in the cellar of his home in Ilkley, Yorkshire. This sleepy little market town was 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 recognised all over the world, 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 – driven by his love of live music. Audio Trends founder, Stephen Lee, started by building Wharfedale speaker kits in the early 1960's with his father until later in that decade fully assembled models became available. Today, we are delighted to continue the partnership between Wharfedale and ourselves - a partnership that continues to thrive with a great selection of quality products.
