I had pretty much decided on the Axiom epic grand master, but upgading to the VP150. Now my business partner has bought into a pro-sound company that carries wharfedales. He can get me a significant discount on their products. Does anyone know much about wharfedales? Is their sound close to another speaker line? Are they phasing out the Diamond 8's for the Diamond 9's? What about the Pacific Evolution line?
I have a pioneer elite vsx-54tx. My room is 18x21 with vaulted ceiling. I am a little concerned about the efficiency of the speakers in a room the size of mine. The diamond line seems to be rated at 86db.
Any thoughts greatly appreciated.
Have never been much impressed with the Wharfies I've heard. Axioms also tend to be a bit bright.
What I'd suggest looking into are the Ascend speakers, amazing performance esp. for jazz, classical, and vocal music. More efficient than the Wharfies too, easily.
I have their CMT-340s and couldn't be happier, the massive center speaker makes a huge difference in particular.
