    Hi,
    i cant find any subjective reviews on these speakers.
    Im interested in the towers (Modus 1-6's/Emerald 97's).
    The 97/s are really pretty.
    How do these compare to say PSB Images, or Paradigm Sudios/Monitors?
    What is recommended for full range with good low freq's?
    Prices?
    Thanks fellas!!!

    Wharfedale has been a premium speaker maker since the late 1960's, but they are in the UK. In the old days they got very good reviews. They haven't been imported much for a long time - I have never seen them. The problem here is that there are too many good US (and Canadian) speaker manufacturers for Wharfedale to make much headway here.

    I heard that the speakers are now made in China with lightweight cabinet construction.

    I have Valdus 500 mains and a center channel that I can't recall the model of. I drive 'em with a Harman-Kardon AVR85 and am quite happy.
    Picked mine up on uBid. They occasionally sell for really low-ball prices on there; just be sure to watch out for the shipping since that's obviously a huge part of uBid's profit model.
