Using 14 awg cable for about 6 metres with my front ones. Should be enough yeah? Now for this price should I buy some rears and throw away the old wharfedales?

I would - the system will then be timbre matched and sound awesome I’m sure. I’ve always kept to the same speaker for the surrounds with only the sub and possibly the centre being from a different range. Go for it at that price.
I use these with a PM/CD6006 combo and they are so good for the price.

I'd match the fronts and centre and not be so concerned about matching the rears That's just me though.

Yeah I’ve matched the front and centre with all monitor audio bronze now I’m tempted to replace my wharfedales rears with these now they are low price

I would be tempted as well
Bronze 5 speakers are only £409 as well. Really good price!
I have these. They are incredible with a rega planar 1 turntable and a Cambridge audio one. I have DIY cable with banana plugs but wojld anyone recommend any cables to connect them?
Great speakers for the money and also size. The 5s are a hell of a lot bigger. It's more important to match your fronts and centre. The rears less so.
Much difference between these & mission qx1's?? Not been too impressed with my set thinking about changing
Got bronze 1s from charity shop for 45 quid, along with mini disc recorder and Denon Dab receiver.
They sound great , very detailed and punchy
Centre channel also seems to be down - steal at 109!

Did you demo these along side any other 'popular' speakers? Keep wanting to demo Dali's.
I demo'd these with B&W 685s, Q Acoustic 3020i's and 2 sets of Dali's. I personally found only the Monitor Audios and the 685's a cut above the rest. The 3020i's that were on here a few days ago I found to be a bit lackluster.
If you have any redemptions left of petal10 get it on ebay for £188.10 ebay.co.uk/itm…kx-

I actually have a set of Dali Zensor 3s downstairs and they are definitely a bit better sounding to me. They seem a bit fuller in sound and fill a bigger room, they were £100 more than this though when I bought them.

Hi I own the full surround set of the Bronze range in a dolby atmos setup and I must say these speaker are something else for surround sound use, so I would say do it as you won't regret it as you will gain less coloration between surround effects and better separation.
What do people think about these being about 10 to 15 cm from a back wall. What hi-fi review says they need 30cm which I cannot do. Otherwise any other good candidates? I think it matters to say I hardly ever play music loud. Gnerally about the level of someone talking normally.

Also I have a PM6006 UKEdn that is my first ever 'digital' in/out product. Do I need a special digital coaxial for the connection to my CDplayer (CD6006 UKEdn) or will my current interconnect do (looks like std RCA connections on CD and Amp) without damaging anything?

Absolutely fine at that distance even at louder volumes.

Ah I didn't think about that (the voume & space together). The volume question was harking back to a demo I had where when I dropped the volume and a very noticeable portion of the music seemed to vanish. I can't remember now if all the speakers did it or not.

These definitely are one of those speakers that sound better with a bit more juice. Acceptable at lower volumes but they sound delicious in their sweet spot

Not all speakers are like that. Some manage to keep things decent even with a low volume, and others struggle. That's one of the reasons I like to demo them

Front ports on these should help if positioning close to a wall. I have to keep the sponge bungs in the rear ports of my Missions to stop them booming or annoying the neighbours.

When you say juice you're talking volume? Because the man at RicherSounds was saying the amp, if it was more powerful, would present more of the music at lower sound levels.

Yes the thing is my current speakers are rear ported. When I got the CD6006UK I was disappointed as I wanted good well defined taught bass but didn't get it.

Dali speakers I've heard are quite capable at lower listening levels.

But what you said amps yes that plays a part in it. You really have to demo as close to what you'll end up with as possible.

Funny thing about the Dalis is that I was told they were designed for near wall sound. Then in as different store of the same dealership I was apologised to, for getting bad advice, and that I needed front ported speakers. Then after a bit of research and finding Dali's own specs for distance to rear wall, such as 10 to 15cm, another dealership said, more or less, 'yeah but if you put them further away they will sound better'. I said 'yeah but why say to 15 cm if they sound better further?'. Rinse and repeat!

From what I know, take it with a pinch of salt. Talking about rear ported speakers. Some are tuned to make use of it and perform better when not far from a wall. It helps them low-end wise. I don't mean pushed against but even then, the Dali Zensor 1's have a mount for being put on a screw, so they'll be something like 1cm from a wall.

Yes I've seen the hanging point on the rear first hand and likewise was given the explanation, so when I went to another RicherSounds and got the apology for abad advice I was
The Monitor audio bronze fx rear speakers are also reduced to £209. These are to fix to the wall by the looks of it. Does anyone know anything about these and if they will be any good along with the bronze 2 fronts for music??
