I thought it was one of two ways:
1. John Lennon's wife or
2. You should buy a name brand, like technica!

That picture makes the speakers look hollow. Seems a good price for a decent set of bookshelf speakers.Hot

I would hope they were hollow

Cue "who the hell are onkyo - I'll stick with bush" etc etc

was tempted to buy these until I noticed the gloss finish on them. Voted hot though.

Touché

RUBBISH Speakers, Get the Wharfedale Diamond 9.0 @ same price (Richer Sounds) which are less rubbish but much better as a budget speaker

Not heard of the brand personally, but sounds similar to my SR507 amp Tempted on these as my zone speakers, any feedback from anyone who has them would be good, was thinking these or richersounds.com/pro…blk which are the same price, matt black too for anyone that don't like the gloss finish!

Seems like a great deal, going for over £200 elsewhere.

Nooo! But you could've had a Sony!!

bad experiance with onkyo speakers.

the wharfedale diamond series is HIGHLY under-rated. a friends using them for rear and front duties with a random centre and it sounds impressive for a £500 set up including the recevier

Nice deal for specialist make speaker.

they dont look bad for 70 from richer sounds including 5 year warranty

Id like to advise *against* these speakers, they are muffled and built cheaply.

£60 will get you some Qaccoustics 1010i which are much better.

Voted cold for poor value and quality of speaker.

Difference being that Wharfedale even after being taken over by the International Audio Group along with Mission still produce quality speakers. It's hardly Wharfedales fault or Mission that British Manufacturing has gone to the far east like most British Manufacturing.

Along with Mission, Wharfedale speakers are still designed within the UK, and both companies solely concentrate on speaker manufacturer (unlike Onkyo)

It is just an unfortunate sideline that IAG allowed the name "Wharfedale" to be used on OEM electronics for Argos to sell under the Wharfedale moniker.

But be assured that their speakers are still the quality they have always been, designed in Britain, but built in China (but what isn't these days)

Are these like Matsui or summick?

Totally agree. The Wharfedales are a much better buy.

yes, yes they are.

in fact, think of them as the Goodmans television of the audio world

These aren't bookshelf speakers. They're for a Micro or mini system but will work well as entry level speakers.

Myself, they're not for me. I own the Diamon 9.1 in Rosewood and these are bookshelf speakers and possibly the best budget (note there is a difference between budget and entry level) speakers around.

The Onkyo speakers are very competent but clearly cannot compare with the Wharfedale Diamond series. If space was an issue though, the Onkyo's are good option.

I had these speaker and they were great. I've tried the Wharfedale 9.0's and didn't like them and I have the Q Accoustic 1010i as rear speakers. Tried them on my stereo and although they were nice and clear they don't have the bass that my Onkyos had. I miss them.

I love Onkyo amps, used to have an Onkyo TX-SR875, awesome amp. Not had any experience with their speakers though. On these speakers the speaker connection is of the spring loaded variety, which means if you wanted to use nice fat speaker cable it may not fit in the hole.

Are you sure? Earlier on had a peeps at user manual for this series of speakers and thought this one had speaker binding posts (cheaper models had spring clips).
I have an Onkyo CD player bought in 1989 that still works... Would be great if could get Onkyo sound cards in this country.

The spec page at the sellers site says...

Connections: Easy-connect, spring-clip connections for bare wire

Ahh right. Just rechecked by Googling "Onkyo D525 download"; that could be old user manual.
Hopefully not deal breaker either way.

Added : Or maybe in Asia they get better specs as well as access to Onkyo soundcards. Grrr...

crap speakers hiding behind the great Onkyo brand name but that's a brand built up by great AV amps. Onkyo are known to make poor speakers.

Well technically, they shouldn't be used on a bookshelf at all. They're actually standmount speakers, i.e. you should buy proper speaker stands, fill them with sand/lead shot to deaden them and then blu-tack the speakers to the stands. The correct height is when the tweeters are at ear height.

As for the Wharfedale tat at Argos, Wharfedale sold off the use of their name to Argos when they were producing poor quality speakers in the late 90s. Since then, and the Diamond 8 range and onwards, they've produced some outstanding speakers. Check out their website and the current Airedale range, at around £15k. I have the Opus range and they are superb.

I'm perfectly comfortable with the size of my Johnson.

well that's true i wouldnt touch most no name tv's anyway. i research individual items on their model number and how good they are.

i've had a hear of the wharedale's and are an excellant middle range home cinema speaker for pennies in comparison to what others spend. i've got the 1010i's and they're great as the rears of my home cinema and had them at the front for a while and my 8 metre by 8 metre room was FULL of sound with them. upgraded with q acoustic 1030i's which i can't rate highly enough and the 1010's are at the back and sides in a 7.1 config although i'm removing them 2 make it a 5.1 set up soon.
