    Default Loving my Wharfedale Jade 1's

    Hi, I recently ditched my MA BR2 speakers which I bought new a few years back and got some Jade 1's on the basis of the reviews - they were the only speakers with no negative comments, I find one negative comment is just about enough to put me off a product!
    Anyway, they immediately sounded better than the MA's and as I listen today I am so pleased with the clarity and detail that I find it hard to believe I could get anything better.
    For the full picture I listen in a smallish 4 x 3 m room which probably has some bearing on things. Currently using Lenco GL78, Denon DL110, Marantz PM6002.
    I haven't seen much about these speakers on any forums and would be interested to hear any AOL posters comments.

    Not head them but they look like a pretty good design. Three way with aperiodic bass loading.

    The wharfedale Jade range look very nice I think.I wouldn't let reviews put you off or on though,I once bought an arcam cd73 because of good reviews, I hated it.

    yes heard some of the jade range at a show and it was amazing what they could do . couple of years ago very nearly bought a pair of the floorstanders as they were heavily discounted

    I ditched a pair of Maggies for a pair of gorgeous Wharfedale Rosedale. Glorious sound driven by vintage Fisher tubes!
