    Any thoughts on the Wharfedale Evo 4.1 speakers?

      I haven’t heard the 4.1s but loved the 4.2s. If the former retain the same basic personality and presentation to the latter then they will get a thumbs up from me.

    Thanks, they certainly look nice but I probably should arrange to hear them. Looking to upgrade from Wharfedale Diamonds 9.1

      Hi PK – agreed, a demo is a good idea, if one can be arranged.

    Hi Paul
    Great review, I enjoyed the extra information as well.
    I didn’t know that Wharfedale is named after the dales of the country side,
    I’ve always thought that it was a family name !
    Any chance that you got the chance to test or listen to the Diamond 225 ?
    Any thought about them and what they are different in comparing to the 12.1 ?
    Thanks & Regards

      From what I’ve heard from colleagues – I’m afraid I haven’t heard them myself and so can’t compare them – they are very nice indeed and recommended.
