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.
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.
