    Amp for Wharfedale Diamond 12.2

    Hello there all! I am planning to buy a pair of Wharfedale Diamond 12.2 speakers, and now I'm thinking about an amp to pair with them. I mostly listen to progressive and classic rock. Phono and digital inputs are welcome, but I'm willing to buy a dac or a preamp later on, so neither of those are...

    Adding rear wall mounted surround speakers in a 7.1 avr

    I'm using the av receiver (Marantz NR1604) only with 5.1 channel connected, it's right to connect them in the surround back position or best to use normal surround considering that typically in a 5.1 home cinema they are in the side of the listener?

The cabinets are in excellent condition for their age, and the tweeters work fine, however I have just discovered that both the main bass drivers have perished outer surrounds which cushion the cones (see...

    50+ Hrs. Club: Wharfedale Diamond 12

    Simply, of my feedback to KHF (he was part of the engineering team), his reply: Indeed, the initial hours of listening to, new-out-of-the-box, 12.1 were rough… Then, say, after eight hours, the-promise-of-it (from professional reviews and everyday consumers) was taking shape. I wish...

    New speakers?

    Hi all. I recently upgraded to a Rega Elicit-R amp with Apple Music streamed over Wi-fi via an Apple Airport Express. No CD player, occasional use of a turntable. Chord cables and interconnects but an old pair of Maudant Short 916i floorstanding speakers. I don’t mind the sound from the...
