Mr cool

Do you need VIP membership for this price?



Seems to be price online and instore so I don't think so. Saying that, it is instore only

good speakers, especially for the money! good find

Just went there. They are pretty weak speakers. In the end I went for the Modaunt Short M20 at 79 - much better sound.

That's what you get for spending twice the amount

These are crap, it's the 9.1s that are legendary fellow wannabe audio gimp know alls

...or £40 more not not draw hysteria....or 200% more if you want to make even more hyperbole.

read a user review of these on the web - had several faults: on one, one of the drive units was wired up in reverse, there was more dust inside the packaging than outside, plus one of the drive units was faulty (had to be replaced).

Once these were fixed, they wen't too bad !!

I have these speakers, they are fantastic

I thought Wharfdale was another of the OEM/House labels that gets stuck on things built to a set store chain requirements?

These only go to 9!

Note these are passive monitors (not power supplied), so you will need an amplifier to make them work.

The Mordaunt Short ones definitely sound better, but from my experience at Uni (house parties and people recklessly turning the volume up), the Wharfedales can take more of a beating, MS tweeters used to blow out at house parties, but the Wharfedales seem to take all kinds of abuse. I've still got my diamond 9.1's in my living room (post uni )

I feel like buying speakers now, but definitely don't need them

If you're looking for a decent but cheap amp to drive these (or other speakers) you'll be lucky to find something as good for £17.49:

Great price....had Wharfedales in the '80s...good to see that they (and Mordaunt Short mentioned also) are still "on the go". Quality should be good

Agree. Also depends what amp you have driving them

How do these compare to the Mordaunt Short M10?

I have the 9.1's from superfi, build quality seems to be quite poor and they resonate quite bad. I think the new 9.1's are built to a price.

So much heat! Feeling sorry that I didn't post this when I got mine last month

Great set to speakers! Amazing sound. Highly recommended.

I listened to both and felt the Wharfedales are more warmer. Again to each his own, try them out. Don't just take any odd review.

I do not know,why people are knocking these speakers,for the price they seem good! Will order them in the morning,thanks OP!

I have strdh750 av receiver, 5 speaker pioneer ssl 100 and I want another 2 powerfull speakers and a subwoofer....any sugestions?

It's worth spending a few more pounds for an SMSL amp. You will get better bass response and better overall sound.

Yes I would like to compare the two, everytime i go into richersounds they try to make me spend more. I think I will just buy it and see rather than letting them decide for me. I just want them to replace my cheap sony speakers before I want to commit into spending 500 quid for a full 5.1 setup.

A decent SMSL amp + PSU is gonna cost near £40!!
Unless you are going to be playing audio at very high volumes then the one I spec'ed is perfectly adequate and provide decent sound quality imho.

You're right. I forgot about the power adapter. The price difference is greater than I thought.

Not quite, as it's part of IAG (with Quad, Audiolab, Mission, etc.). You must be confusing Wharfdale for Sony or Onkyo X)

Seriously, hard to fault at £40, but I'd avoid the lepai T-amp as it's very cheap and cheerful (pops when turned on or off, no proper grounding, poor finish, garish blue led). I'd recommend instead a used amp/receiver, or if you want something very compact and power efficient, amptastic's mini-1 (at £100)

Very nice

Worth £40 smackers all day long...heat added speakers for itself!

i bought some Wharfedale Diamond 121 off RS for £100 and resold them for £150 on flea bay X)
unlike these i don't think they have to be placed near a wall to get good bass.

Not much of a bargain if you end up spending £100 on an amp for it

These are fine for budget system rear surrounds, or for very small rooms as starter kit. They are not going to have much clout behind them without added LFE, but still going to be preferable for those that utilise an AV Receiver for a higher percentage of music than movie watching.

A lot of people these days starting out just go for heavily subwoofer dependent satellites. These may not be brilliant but a better option to those on a budget, rather than budget satellites that are going to sound a bit thin when it comes to music...admittedly not big drivers and the 9.1s would be a better option...but a better bet on a tight budget.
