Summary: These speaker's sound great, look great and have easy to use connections. Be aware that these are quite low on the units and depending on your brackets (if you are using them) that these may interfere. Excellent overall!
Nice sound, although quality of build could be better

Summary: Bought these from another supplier as they were only £99. Paired with a Denon CEOL RCDN8. Excellent decision, sounds are very good, bass is enough that I would not need to add a sub. Treble is well measured. Only criticism I have is as others have found and is well documented, in that the build finish is not quite as good as is should be. Mine show slight imperfections, but nothing I can't live with.
Summary: Bought on line and arrived promptly well packed. These are simply superb little speakers. The are bigger than most bookshelf speakers, which combined with their new speaker on a plinth design makes for superb bass response. Not overpowering , but powerful. I`m listening to Opeth Pale Communion as I type and it sounds nearly as good on these streaming from my computer into a dac and amp as my main system. Warm, detailed, and accurate.
Summary: After purchasing a new amplifier out of necessity, I was of the opinion that a new pair of speakers would be appropriate to bring out the best in it, taking into account technological advances. As the owner of a very capable Wharfdale sub woofer, the same brand was at the top of my list for consideration. I was aware of the reputation the Diamond series had attained over the past three decades. The 101’s had received good reviews and seemed very appealing at the price.
Summary: Having just got rid of some studio monitors I was dubious these would be comparable. They are better than expected by far. Fantastic clarity, good all round sound for speakers of this size and a very well developed sound enabling me to pick out everything in the music. I've paired them with the Wharfedale power cube which has helped get my bass sorted. Very pleased. At this price, I'm with What hifi - hard to beat.
Summary: Ive just ordered my second pair. These are excellent speakers no matter the source. Tv blu-ray cds over a wide eclectic mix of sounds and the radio. All sound great. I cant wait for the new speakers to complete my sound system.
Summary: These are excellent speakers, but I think you would get similar quality from the 9.1's, which are currently at £99. Although it has got great reviews, I personally don't think it's worth the extra money. This is just an average consumer, and i'm by no means an expert. Also, you need to buy an amplifier and quality wires in addition to this product.
