    Wow. He went through the whole review without a single negative thing to say. Not one. He even listened to organ music without saying, "lacks the extension to reach the lower octaves, as do all monitor-type speakers." And he listened to rock music without saying, "isn't going to give you the visceral slam of bigger speakers."

    But unless Wharfedale has found a way around the laws of physics (or maybe they've gone quantum?), those things are true. To me, it adds up to a review that's too good to be true.

    Wharfdale do make some very nice speakers. No doubt this Diamond can sound fantastic, but it is rather small. $350 is not bad for a quality built unit now a days.
    Something' amiss.
