  One afternoon in the early 1980s I demonstrated a system to a distinguished, immaculately suited American who was a high-flyer. His employers had phoned me to tell me that on his behalf they would pay for his chosen system – and there was no budget limitation. His chauffer waited outside while I went through […]

NAIM: 62/150x + Wharfedale Evo 40 floorstanders; why does this owner think he might be going deaf?

I bought a set of Wharfedale Evo 40 floorstanders from a mate to experiment with. 2 months later and they are still connected, with my Dynaudio Excite X12 nicely packed away. All logic says that this cannot make sense. My Naim 62/150x pre/pwr pair should make the Dynaudios sing and the Wharfedales look like impostors […]

WHARFEDALE: Jade 7 loudspeaker test review

Robert Deutsch ….. The word that for me best describes the sound of the Wharfedale Jade 7 is balanced. Not just its tonal balance—which was almost ideally neutral—but a balance of the various sonic attributes most valued by audiophiles. Transparency, detail, soundstaging, and dynamics were all excellent—perhaps only a rung below what’s available from more […]
