Summary: The only speaker better for me than the 9.5s would be the 9.6s, disregarding the higher end of the Wharfedale set. Diamond 9CM awesome too! They are all clear in the treble and mid-range, with good bass definition. Next stop the SW250 or above!
Summary: I have been using the Diamond 9.5 (Front - Biamp), Rear Diamond 9.2 and Centre 8.CS and using VDH CS122 Biwire Cables with IXOS Interconnects; Connected to my loyal Pioneer AX3. Sub is Mordount Short MS909. The speakers are fantastic even for stereo (Via Cambridge Audio 640A/C) and movies. Its has enough strength in bass and vocal as well as sweet tweeters!
Summary: I have 2 diamond 9.6s floors, 2 9.1 rears, 9.CM center and the 12" downard firing sub hooked up to the Onkyo 605. I got the lot for $2000NZD so value for money wise ... In a word, they're fantastic.
Summary: Though, this is an old post, almost a year old but I just bough my Wharfedales 9.5, 9.2, CS & Sub 250W. Matched with Yamaha RXV-861. They are simply great. I chose them after looking/listening to Jamo, UBL, Mission, Focal & Infinity speakers.
Pros: Great sound for the cost of these speakers. VALUE FOR MONEY.
Cons: The sub, SW150W, I felt was not good enough for me so went back and changed it to Wharfedale SW250. The SW250 has great base sound but the front information panel display after 10 sec, goes off though the sub works fine. Wish it remain lit for ergonomics.
Summary: I love my 9.5s!!! I have the speaker set CNET tested for the 5.1 test and the whole lot is amazing for the money I paid. I tested these over some klipsh speakers that were twice the price and blow me down! the wharfee's sounded just plain better. Amazing speakers for the price. I have them Bi-wired connected to an onkyo reciever and it sounds just GREAT!
Pros: Can't fault them. Pink Floyd: Crazy Diamond and the THX preview on the Starwars ep3 DVD made me cry... just so DAM beautiful!
Summary: I have four 9.5 towers as fronts and sides and 2 9CS centres as front and rear with a Wharfedale sub in my 6.1 set up with a Sony STR-DH810 receiver. They provide a fantastic sound, and are incredible value. They sound as good as equipment nearly twice the price from other manufacturers. I have to say the Sony Str-DH810 is a cracking value receiver too.
Excerpt: Заказал в известном интернет магазине. Порадовала и большая скидка, и быстрая доставка, и хорошая упаковка, как магазинная, так и заводская, но в начале, конечно громкие оценки именитых изданий. Настораживали отзывы о плохого качества "резинках" динамиков, оклейки корпуса и проваливающихся клеммах. Но решил рискнуть. При распаковке товара стали осыпатся крепления гриля. вопрос в покупке отпал моментально - качество ниже некуда. Да, не Англия.
Pros: Не удалось проверить...к великому сожалению!
Cons: качество изготовления отдельных элементов оттолкнуло от покупки в целом
