Not sure when this happened but I just got another pair of these beauties for half the price I bought my originals. Fantastic speakers and such a steal at this price.

Audiophiles will agree. Perfect for adding to that 7.1 setup you haven't yet finished, or if you just want to upgrade your old satellites.

zermattbusby I have the 9.1's and my mate has the 9.0's and I have to say if you can russle up te xtra cash the 9.1's are well worth the extra cash. The high end on the 9.1's is so much brighter and live than the 9.0's (on the same amp), Also the 9.1's are bi-wireable. That being said the 9.0's are an AMAZING set of speakers for £50. I was going to buy the 9.0's at £50 from richer sounds a while ago for my PC but I managed to get a good deal on a used pair of Mordaunt-short's

Thanks for that mate :thumbsup: 9.1s are £99.00

They've been £50 for months haven't they? A bargain nevertheless but I'd save for the 9.1s.

i believe 9.1 - aimed at front speakers. 9.0's aimed at being the rear...

Absolutely, would personally feel that the larger drivers of the 9.1s would be wasted for rears, but if you have the space to accomodate, the 9.1s would benefit with music as front speakers without having to have reliance on a subwoofer for lower frequencies.

i have a 10 yr old old JVC hifi, twin casette deck, 6cdchanger, cost £500 in its days, probably £5 on ebay these days, anyway, will these speakers be good replacements for the existing set that deterioated over the yrs. I guess the hifi has a inbuilt amp
#13


They also do them for 10 quid more in black too. Personally never have liked Rosewood speaker cabinets, but each to their own.

Curiously these Cherry ones at least by the photos looks more like beech to me.

Would suggest you look at the power output of the amplifier section of your old midi system in comparison to the recommended power input of these......

Power handling (watts): 15 - 75
Sensitivity (dB): 86
Nominal impedance (ohms): 6
Magnetically shielded? Yes
W x H x D (mm): 145 x 236 x 165
Frequency response (Hz): 60 - 24,000

To be honest, if you are finding you are not using the tape deck of your old midi system, you may do better buying a cheap Cambridge Audio Amp for 80 quid, and investing in a cd player.

Even budget hi-fi seperates would sound far better, and are far more upgradeable.

speaker impedence 8 OHMS. The hifi still sounds awesome, the speakers have been destroyed physically (kids) more than to do with the music but the sound was good

Hi all.
Just looked at these but as soneone has already noted, they need an amp. Can anyone suggest a cheapish option for speakers? After having a new sky digibox and connect via HDMI, the volume is very quiet (vol 9 was fine via scart but even on 36 is hard to hear - just like the DVD player on the other HDMI). Thereis no earphone socket on the tv so I guess I'd have to use a scart to phono and plug into the unused scart plugs on the tv.
It has an optical out but cheapest I saw speakers for this is over £400. Considering the tv is on for around 1.5hr a night if that, I don't want to spend too much but surround sound would have been nice.

ANy ideas guys?
Thanks,
JJ

These speakers are absolutely fantastic. But are built for separates systems. They're not supposed to be used for anything else.

And they are only double the price...

How many more people are going to post "you can get better (insert item here) if you pay more" type comments today?

Check output impeadance of the amplifier - if it is 6 ohms or lower then you are fine but if 8 ohms the speakers will stress the amp and possibly result in damage. Also you are always better off with an amplifier rated higher than the speakers - while this sounds contradictory a low powered amp is more likely to clip at lower volumes and damage the hf drivers.

Can I keep them on top of my rear bookshelf speakers to achieve a 7.1 setup?

9.1 > 1010i > 9.0

I have some Wharfedale 9.1 in my second system and for the money they are brilliant speakers! I also used to own some Q Acoustics 1010's and they punch above their diminutive size also.

The main difference between the 9.1 an 9.0/1010i is the cabinet size of the speaker, in theory this gives the 9.1's more bass, and they feel a bit more refined than the other two.

For £40/50 you cannot go wrong, match them with a budget amp/micro hi-fi and the sound it will produce will blow any cheap Aiwa/Sony midi-system away. :thumbsup:
