I am just a musician/enthusiast but these speakers are better than any other bookshelf speakers I have experienced. Excellent for close field listening. More

"Sound great!"
4 out of 5 06 May 2020
I traded these for an old Dual turntable and didn't have any special expectations. I have a pair of old Tannoy Mercury S and love them, but these E11 sounds almost as good, and even perform a little better in the low end. More

"Perfect bedroom speakers"
5 out of 5 02 May 2020
I brought this speakers from eBay in about 2016 for use in my bedroom and have used and loved them ever since; they have beautifully balanced sound and look more stylish and sound much better than cheap modern speakers! I use them for listening to a wide range of music, listening to chat and talk shows and for watching movies through them. I currently have them powered from a NAD C 717 DVD Receiver More

"Old School and Memorable"
4 out of 5 01 May 2020
I picked up a pair of these ex-display from Richer Sounds in the early 90s. They did sterling service right up until 2006, when their scuffs and dings from multiple house-moves saw me donate them to a local charity. Twas a sad day. These Wharfedales had an upfront sound that was never too in-your-face and their bass response was pretty energetic, too. They could be driven to fairly hefty volume levels and they really made the most of dance ... More

"Not high-end, but excellent value for money"

Actually got the 760i SE versions, which are bi-wirable. Achilles heel seems to be method grilles attach, which is v fragile and most s/h pairs have poorly fitting grilles. Not a problem if you are happy to use them with naked drivers. In 2019, replaced the crossover electrolytic capacitor with matched pair from Falcon Acoustics. Staggered by the improvement and only about 3 per speaker! Give a detailed, clear sound without being harsh.... More

"Sony APM-22ES speakers"
5 out of 5 26 March 2020
Bought them in 1984 influenced by Alvin Gold -hi-fi reviewer and "golden ear " in hifi choice mag. He gave them a "best buy " commenting on the "near electrostatic" tweeters , I have had no reason to dispute that judgement as I am still using them , very much under appreciated . Beware ! later models of the same ilk had cheaper (inferior ) tweeters . More

"Reliable old friend"
5 out of 5 07 March 2020
Great sound. This 30+ year old receiver ably powered my SDA-1s until fizzling out a few days ago. Wish I could replace it. I'm now using an X3600H to power the same speakers. The X3600H has excellent features for network and bluetooth connectivity - Great tech! ...not sure if I'll ever make use of the full 9.2 or 7.1.4 capabilities. I had no complaints about the 825RA. RIP More

Monitor Audio MA9's from 1982 or there about Positives:wonderful soundstage and instrument separation, excellent clarity really brings out the fine details in the Music Negatives: Tweeter can be a bit shrill on already treble heavy Music and some female vocals which is slightly fatiguing however this only an occasional Issue for me, I think possibly experimenting with different speaker cable might solve this problem I am currently using Lin...

"Good speakers don't age!"
5 out of 5 14 February 2020
Wear and tear aside - as that's easily fixable and should readily be embraced. The age of a speaker is not a consideration, it's either a good speaker or not so good speaker! When buying, listen with your ears, not your eyes. Take some time out and fortify your mind! More

Wharfedale Delta 30.2

By: Ronald Lee
"Delta 30.2 -Under rated speaker"
5 out of 5 07 February 2020
This cheap looking speaker can deliver exceptional good sound for wide range - from bass to high tweeter note with clear separation. I found the speaker easy to drive with most amplifier. In comparison with my other 4 pairs of different hi end speakers, this Delta 30.2 (6-in paper cone for mid range) delivers clear sound and in particular the tweeter that gives very clear distinctive sound. Great value for a small price. More
