    Then VW had a problem because the Skodas they initiated became better reviewed and more reliable than their own.

    I'm not anti Chinese stuff as a matter of course. But couldn't they just make stuff that looks more, dare I say it, British.

    I mean, it's obvious that they are crashing into that market. Brands like Rogers, Tannoy, MA, MF, Proac, etc etc, had that down pat.

    If you're going to copy stuff, you just need to do it right.

    I don't give a **** as I'm quite happy with speakers that are 30 or more years old.

    A lot of the new stuff just looks crass to me.
    Sounds s**t too.

    Wharfedale 220 was recently measured for performance on audioscienceforum and got favorable comments for both sound and measured value at the given pricepoint.

    I must've dropped lucky with my Wharfedale Lintons.
    They sound great, really great in fact
    And more importantly I never tire of listening to them, and at the moment I'm listening to them a lot
    They're the first pair of Wharfedales I've owned and I'll admit I wasn't aware of the companies previous offerings good or bad

    I've never understood brand / badge snobbery either but if a company's reputation is damaged because of a history of poor products this can take some repairing

    Their tests showed that Wharfedale have made a speaker with no obvious technical deficiencies. Far too many "HiEnd" speakers measure very oddly indeed. You are often buying an effects box that may or may not suit your taste in the long term.

    Old Wharfedale were not too bad either, their main sin back then was being sold in Comet

    They look a fair bit like the Whardale EVO's to me (although the EVO's look better) obviously the Elysian speakers are bigger. I think the should be applauded for making something a bit different instead of the normal two-ways.


    The EVO 4.4 are £1200, yes that's for the pair! they are the same sort of weight as similar size speakers from PMC and ProAc, but £4k less in Price, is the SQ as good perhaps not (i think some one on here a pair of the smaller EVO's and thought they weren't that good), but it's something different i suppose.

    Here's Kevin discussing the Lintons...have a look at the second video if you just think he's just an amusing salesman... He's the real deal. Amazing :)

    What I meant is that no matter how well built or engineered a box speaker is, it is still a box and therefore constrained by this design. It’s only when I heard MLS and then my own Maggies that I heard a sound truly liberated from the constraints of the box design.

    I started off with Linton XP3's back in the mid seventies and they sounded bloody great.
