Summary: good but get the 10 series. the sound quality is better, but for the price this is a great stereo system. Also, this set is getting harder to find so you'll be able to find the 10 series much easier!
Summary: I just wanted some cheap add-on rear surround speakers for my YHTS-401 sound bar set up. These were cheapest in stock so were a bit of an impulse purchase. Sound output from rear channels does not seem that loud/powerful but maybe it is the way my system is set up? This is a well built quality speaker and I am very happy with the way it looks and is put together.
Summary: I bought these as an addition to some Dali zensors and a Yamaha amp/sub for a 5.1 setup. Really impressed with quality of sound. Solid units. And as always, first class service and delivery from richer sounds. Can't fault them!
Summary: Bought these for some lower level sounds in my dining room. One of the speakers was faulty(cone was buzzing at medium level) which was changed straight away. They seem to be great value for money good frequency response across the board. Would recommend as a cheap yet reasonably good setup.
Summary: But I think I should have spent a little more and gone for a better speaker As good as these are, they are slightly lacking at the top end treble and as I have a sub, this does seem to be a little lacking They produce a lovely sound but I think I will use these as rears and get the mission mx1 soon For £40 though they are a super speaker! Although I note the price has gone up recently!
Summary: bought these speakers to replace some thirty year old warefdale speakers thet are past it now. sound good but not as good as the old ones as i remember them. but impressed with these diamond ones would recommend them.
Summary: The speakers are quite good for the price, Their small but do pack the punch. Quality of sound is really nice as well, I had them paired up with my wintage pioneer amp and they sounded lovely. BUT there are few small griped with them: - They don't have rubber feet at the bottom thus give out a lot of vibrations to the surface - Audio terminal is quite small you need tiny fingers to get cables connected.
Wharfedale Diamond 9 HCP - Great sound in a smallish package

Excerpt: I bought his used on eBay for £122 locally, though mine are in a cherry finish, which looks very, very nice. The speakers all have connections on the back where you thread through a big bit of cable and tighten down a plastic screw on it. They are not bi-wirable. The subwoofer has several connection options (see the manual) and can turn itself onto standby mode when not in use to save power. The speakers are well built and smart.
