Rated 5 out of 5 by OrioniS For this price, it's bargain!
Went to the shop in Kingston (thanks guys) wanting to buy replacement for my old Denons bookshelves. I was looking for cheap floor-standers like Tibo EDGE 200, but they didn't have them, so I've asked for some good bookshelves to compare them with my Denons.
We picked CAMBRIDGE AUDIO SX60 and WHARFEDALE DIAMOND 9.0 I was hearing from time to time. After small audition, I was blown by WD 9.0 to the point, that I forgot about my front speaker replacement (but I got stands for them, they just start to sing now) and ordered next day 2 pairs (4 speakers) for my surround replacement.
Best part was that: I still need Centre speaker to replace another Pioneer S-11 and I though, for time being, I can use one of WD9.0 (got space for it) from surround. It was 10x better than anything else I had before. After reading more about it, majority of centre speakers are not up to the scratch and is much better to have all surround system with the same speakers. Brilliant! I got 3rd pair next day. ;-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Collins27 Sound as good as ones twice their size in the 70's!
I was really impressed with the sound quality for the price attached to my Pioneer 1980's amplifier. The size is just right and look twice as expensive as they are. I would recommend to anyone to buy for speakers in the right place on a shelf or Dresser as I have them.
Plus impressed with the help and service I received from Richer Sounds of Reigate on my very first visit to buy the speakers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Spiderleghead Great for a small speaker.
The sound quality is great for such a small and cheap product. I am using them as passive monitors (have active monitors, but wanted a passive pair for comparrison). They are a little short of really low frequencies, but that is to be expected from such a small driver.
I would recommend these speakers to anyone who is on a budget and needs some small clear sound makers.
I've not bought a pair of wharfdales for about 20 years. These display the same high quality that i remember.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PartickFrobes So good I have installed them in our church
I worked in a recording studio years ago, so am fairly critical of audio products. These speakers are very good value indeed and deliver a good sound. I bought a pair for home and was that impressed I have bought a further pair for a medieval church, where they sound very well indeed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Onceyoung Easy to live with. small form speakers
I use these speakers mounted on some wall brackets with a small format denon system.
A great sound from these front ported 2way speakers. They are sometimes slightly boomy on voice only / talk radio /radio four.
But I have not had this issue with any type of music.
They were easy to mount due to the captive nuts fixed in the rear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kevin59 Amazing for the price!
My first separates system in the early 80s included the mark 1 Diamonds, and they were simply superb then. So when I decided to upgrade the speakers on a decent micro-system in my dining room, these were the first choice. And I remain amazed that such sound can be had for this ridiculously low price!
They needed a bit of running in and I have been rewarded by a lovely sweet sound but with a controlled deep base that really should not be possible from cabinets this small. The cabinets are solid and do not sound hollow when tapped, all of which contributes to the great sound. Am I easily pleased? Well, no - my main system is Linn based so my standards are very high. These are quite simply well made, high quality speakers which sound far better than they have any right to at this price.
And the service from Richer Sounds? I bought online and they were superb - outstanding in fact.
You will not be disappointed if you buy these.
