Bottom Line:   
Best 250. including delivery I may ever spend. Thanks STO. Long breakin period that was expected from woven Kevlar drivers. Very large and forgiving soundstage. Full detailed sound especially in midrange. The Bass is very adequate for a 6.5" driver and typically a bit boomy as are many ported 3 way speakers. The tweeter is good, not great but good, the all around sound is well balanced and very enveloping. I am driving these biwired with an Onkyo 2 channel 50WPC and they truely sound Terrific. My son broke them in with his Gawdawful "screamo" music and it hasnt seemed to damge the speakers LOL. Overall for the money i paid i could not be happier. I love that Kevlar sound, i'm used to it from my Sony SSK line and these rock just as well. At clearance prices you will find nothing that sounds better untill you go up around 1,000 pair.

Bottom Line:   
I finally installed the spikes at the bottom of the loudspeakers. The improvement was unbelieveable. Lot more air in to the sound. I really enjoy the sound of the speakers. With subwoofer i get almost equal volume from 36hz to 16khz.

Bottom Line:   
i was really excited about the wharfedale diamond 8.4s.
the day i got them i listened to them for some hours and i began to think that maybe I made a mistake(they did'nt sound as good as they did in the showroom). Then i thought i'll give them some time to break in. Oh! What a revelation. These beauties are just too good. They reproduce an unbelievable stereo soundstage. they excel in movies too. Just try Lord of the rings or best pop in the saving private Ryan and get ready to be amazed, amazed that such sound quality can be had for so little of those greenbacks. The bass is clean but not boomy. They sound good when they are given some space.

Bottom Line:   
Sorry for my bad english, i am french ...

Good bass ... depth ... strong ...
Medium seems ok ...
Treble is not very clear, not high enough ... a little hard ... I have listened to better treble ... (Kef Coda 7)
Well balanced sound ...
Directive sound ...
Placement is important to have a good bass and soundstage ...

Not expensive speakers in France ... That's why i bought them ! ;-)

You need good (specially in the high frequencies) and powerful amp to drive them ... They are just 86dB ...

Nice soundstage detailed even with treble not high enough ... Certainly because of the 3 speakers ...

Bottom Line:   
Undoubtly the best value for your money. I was realy intrested in B&W s3, and after a long research and wandering in many stores, I figured out that the asked price for the B&W 603 or even the 602 is not for me. That's the reason that pushed me to look for a better reward for my money. This is how i met the Wharfedale Diamond and the rest is history.
The Diamond 8.4 turned to be the best buy for the money and I'm happy with this purchase. The 8.4 are great speakers. The sounds are clear and warm, and there is excellent ballance between high, medium and bass. They are great for stereo as well as for home theatre. I warmly recommend them. The best value for your money. I think the best price could be found on the net is in www.buy.com
Mine were bought in Manila (where I live for a while), I guess they are so cheap because they are made in China. I didn't find any bad about this, and the quality still remains high as any previous Wharfedale product made in the U.K.
