    Wharfedale Diamond 8 Series (8.1, 8.4, 8 Center) vs Infinty Primus brand
    What do you think of the quality of the Wharfedale Diamond 8 Series ??

    I was led to a retailer who has them...

    For almost the same price of the Infinity Primus HSC set


    ...I can get :

    1- Wharfedale Diamond 8.1 pair for FRONTs ( or Diamond 8.4 pair for Double their price..he he..)

    2- Diamond 8 center

    3- Diamond DFS Bi-Pole surrounds ( or Wharfedale Diamond 8.1 pair )

    4- Wharfedale 8A for a SUB...

    Any thoughts??

    I have no experience with the Infinity's, however I currently run Wharfedale Diamond 8's all round :

    Front - Diamond 8.3
    Centre - Diamond Centre
    Surround - Diamond 8.1
    Sub - Wharfedale Topaz (acctually died yesterday so I'm looking to replace)

    I find the Diamond 8's very good considering ther relatively low price... very good tonal matching for movies and the 8.3's are great for music - plenty of bass without the need for a sub (enough fo me anyway)

    I would not recommend the Topaz sub, however the Powercube is by all accounts much better.

    I don't think you would be disappointed with the Diamonds at all.
