What Wharfedale say about this amp:
“We use Birch ply for all our cabinet work utilising interlocking panels and resonance controlling reinforcing struts where necessary. Covered with our proprietary vinyl and cabinet hardware, the final touch being either the piano-finish stained walnut baffle plate, giving a lustrous plum colour wood grain, or alternatively the solid colour black piano finish.
The amplifiers feature a seam-welded heavy gauge steel chassis to securely hold the heavy duty transformers, well supported 2oz copper FR4 printed circuit boards (many being double sided plated through types), and chassis mounted valve bases, switches connectors etc.
