    Hi. I've got an Eltax Liberty set up right now and have been very happy with this but I feel upgraditis taking hold of me. I was going to upgrade the Liberty 1 fronts and perhaps the sub (Atomic A10) but then saw this http://www.superfi.co.uk/index.cfm/page/moreinfo.cfm/Product_ID/2060 . I've had Diamonds in my front room for years and really like them. Any one got any opinions on this offer for price and performance. I must say it looks great. Do you think it'll be much of an improvement on my Eltax set up?

    I should add that my room is about 14ft by 10ft - will floorstanders be too much for a room this size?

    If you are thinking of going for Diamonds, maybe you want to look at Diamonds 9 which is the newer model.

    Ta Wes. I went for the 8.3s in any case. Arrived yesterday and have to say they are head and shoulders above the Eltax. Three words sum it up: clarity, precision and detail.

    Very happy. :smashin:

    Jules,
    I've been using my Wharfedale Diamond 8's for just over 2 years and I still think they are excellent value for money. Have you got the extra centre rear or just the 5.1?

    No, a centre rear wasn't in the pack. My Yammy 5540 only gives me a phantom centre rear any way. Do you think it makes much difference? Any case, even my wife notices the difference in sound quality between the Wharfs and the Eltax (which, I have to say I thought was pretty good for the price). One of the main diffs is that dialogue from the front centre is now very clear, whereas I'd often have problems hearing it on the Eltax. Cosmos, what sub do you use with your Wharfs?
