Summary: Due to moving to a new house my old arrangement of speakers on brackets on the wall wouldn't work so I had a rethink. Floor standers offered the answer but a lot of them were too large, either depth, width or height, for where I could place them. These Wharfedales were a great solution in that they aren't as large as a lot of the competition. Based on the excellent Wharfedale 10.1 stand mount speakers, these have a lovely open sound with plenty of detail.
Summary: I am listening as I write,to Bill Evans, properly for the first time since the three or so years I got the CD. These speakers are growing on me daily.I was disappointed at first and wondered where the bass had gone.I have realised that,being new to Hi-Fi separates,I have been hearing overemphasised bass.
Very good speakers for smaller and medium sized rooms
24 January 2013
Summary: If you have a smaller or medium sized room these are the perfect speakers for you. They have a detailed and clear sound, a quite punchy bass and do not sound harsh in the mid and high tones. Really fine audiophile speakers for all kind of music, as I listen to blues, hardrock, classical and acoustic music etc.. Have paired them with a Marantz SR4021 and a Marantz CD5001 and I really love the sound of this system and can listen to it for hours without getting stressed.
Summary: These speakers really impressed me on how they coped with all different types of music. If you are on a budget like me then i would strongly advise a demo in your local sound room. I had these wired up to a yamaha AS500, the yamaha cds300 with some extra base coming from a yamaha ystfsw050 sub. This was my first time in a sound room and the experience convinced me to purchase the diamonds and the yamaha kit. Looking forward to getting it all set up when its delivered.
Summary: These speakers are quite lightweight for floorstanders, they are also quite unobtrusive in the room, due to the curved narrow shape. They easily blend into the background, making you forget about them, allowing you to concentrate on your music/movies. The only niggle I have with these speakers is they don't fill me with confidence the way they sit on their spikes.
Excerpt: Требуют длительного прогрева.Использую с усилителем NAD 316BEE. Мощности хватает за глаза.Настоящий бас прорезался примерно через месяц использования.Покупкой доволен.На мой слух начисто переигрывают Wharfedale Vardus 300 которые были у меня до этого.
Pros: Хороший драйвовый звук.Отличное качество изготовления.Очень красивые.
Summary: Nun, wo fang ich am besten an? Am besten fange ich damit an, dass das Gehäuse nicht furniert ist, sondern ledigilich mit "Dekorfolie" beklebt ist. Dennoch wirkt dieser Lautsprecher in seinem Auftreten recht edel.Durch das abgerundete Gehäuse passt sich dieser Lautsprecher auch in den modernen Wohnraum gut ein. Die Gehäuseverarbeitung wirkt insgesamt recht hochwertig, ohne irgendwelche Patzer.
