Excerpt: I have had these speakers for 3 years now. When I first started using them, they were a great disappointment - they were harsh and there was virtually no bass. In fact, I reverted back to my very old KEFs and put the Warfedales in the loft! Then, when we moved house, the KEFs simply didn't fit the lounge, so reluctantly I brought the 8.3s down again. After many hours of running in, I have to say they have improved a lot.
Excerpt: --FOR STARTERS-- The wharfedale daimond 8.3s are floorstanding speakers which may interest many people who are quite serious about hifi, but don't have a never ending budget. They'll set you back £200 at the full retail price but I've personaly seen them as low as £80. First off, these speakers represent outstanding value for money.
