Bottom Line:   
I am from the UK and have over 20 pairs of E range speakers inc these 90's I consider myself to be the worlds largest collector of these and leading specialist (it's more of a hobby really)
I specialise in re-furbishing this range including re-laminating the cabs in any colour (even if they are knocked about)

My personal view is that the "E THIRTY" is the best sounding pair in the range. I'm not saying the 90's are poor but just think the 30's sound exceptional! I've gone back time after time to compare and keep going back to the 30's

We keep lots of spares and will purchase yours if you are thinking of parting with them!!?

Bottom Line:   
after enjoying many years of listening from these speakers, i decided i would tell the world how great they are.
When people look at them they are astonished because of there size and great looks and thats before they are 'fired up'.
they are very loud too, 96db at 1.2w at meter is very efficient but not only this they will take 160watts nominal.
i have compared them to many hi end speakers, but nothing else compares. If you see them for sale, do not hesitate to buy them because you wont see them again.

Bottom Line:   
These are impressive, magnificent speakers that produce a rich, vibrant sound from very little power. The bass is powerfull and rich making these speakers a rock & roller's dream. I bought these in the early 80's after reading a review in Stereo Review magazine. I paid $2400 for the pair back then. It is now 2001 and I'm still enjoying my favorite music on my E-90's. Come on Wharfedale, it's time to introduce a new generation to what awsome loudspeakers are all about by re-introducing the E-90's.

Bottom Line:   
At first glance with the amp (NAD 317) switched off, they already impress everyone by their looks. Sounds great too with great detail and a very "direct" sense of appearence of the instruments. The bass can be too much at higher volumes. I put some isolation in the gigantic reflex-port. The bass is dependant of acoustics and positioning of the speakers. I also modified the filters using H.Q. (MKT/MKP) capacitors. This improved much detail overall with a more open sound. Modification details at buraas@worldonline.nl

Bottom Line:   
This is finest Wharfedale ever made.I would like to see this model remanufactured.I had E-30,E-50,E-70 but only E-90 gave me a goosebumps.Crafmantship is excelent,sound very good,excelent for rock or extreme sound pressure(127db),sensitivity is 96db 1w 1m(perfect for tube amps).This model is actually 4-way,and if I remember correctly has cuts on 150Hz,800Hz and 7.5kHz.Bass is clean and punchie,very clean and natural mid section,but I never liked horn tweeter,but sounds o.k.If you have problems with neighbours this is not speaker for you.If somebody has a pair of E-90 for sale please send email to totalav@idirect.com
